Dr. Diao was honored to show Dr. Tatebe around San Francisco, exchanging thoughts on Hand Surgery and discussing different techniques. Dr. Tatebe returned to Japan safely and sent Dr. Diao a kind letter.
“Dear Dr. Diao,
I return to Japan with full of happy memories and appreciation.
Let me send you photos.
I am still excited about my wonderful experiences in San Francisco. All the people I met there were kind and friendly. I've learned a lot of things.
You were so considerate to make my stay enjoyable and comfortable.
I had a great time with you and I will never forget the days with you.
I hope to see you again in the next year. I do hope you will have a plan to visit us in Nagoya.
Thank you again for your hospitality ...
