    This is way overdue, but I want to thank Dr. Groeger for the super surgery he did on my thyroid gland in the mid eighties. He left in a small piece of the gland, about the size of a pea, and since then I have normal thyroid function, no meds! No scar visible to the untrained eye, either! I live in Southern California now, retired from AT&T, still playing bass guitar and performing with a group in Coronado. God bless you and the staff at St. Mary's in San Francisco. Patsy Brichta
