Subject: Medical appeal letter to investigate the case study

Dear Brennan,

My name is Matthew Baldwin and I am a pancreatic cancer patient. I was admitted in your hospital for its treatment for nearly 45 days. My bed number was T-112 of the special care ward and I was discharged on 10 April, 2010.

During my stay in your hospital, I was under Dr. Alex Smith's treatment. From the very first day of my hospitalization, I was injected thrice a day with some costly anti-virus injections. However, this never relieved the itching sensation I experienced constantly throughout my body. After two weeks, Dr. Alex suggested to surgically remove a part of a structure of an organ. This was the critical decision as it needed an experienced hand. Furthermore, it had to be performed without disturbing the mesenteric blood vessels supplying blood to the intestines. Thanks to the medical journal that I read in my spare time.

Finally, the surgery took place on 5 April, 2010. It was informed to me that the tumor has been removed successfully. I had some relief for couple of days. However, the itching sensation started again. I informed Dr. Alex on his visit about the pain I am going through. All he said was, 'it takes time to stop the problem'. I also insisted to extend my hospitalization for few days as it was not possible for me to visit the hospital every week after discharge. However, they didn't surrender to my request and I was finally discharged on 10 April, 2010. Though I am not sure, but I feel that your staff just wanted to make some space for one of your celebrity patient.

Since I am still experiencing the same pain, and am not satisfied with the course of treatment, I appeal to you to look into my case and assign some better doctor than Dr. Alex. I am ready to get hospitalized once again and just need to come out of it trouble-free. Please call me if you need the copy of the treatment for reference.

Thanking you,

Yours truly,
Mathew Baldwin
