Dr Diamond  

  Your website is great

 
The FX layout and accompanying editorial and captions are terrific.  It is amazing to me what you were able to put on your website after a visit to our showroom with your camera.   Infiniti could learn from you. 
 
I appreciate your kind words about me and all of our staff here, and we are eagerly awaiting the arrival of your new FX, which will continue to build your enthusiasm for Infiniti following your QX4 and Q45.  With both our flagship and our newest introduction, Kathleen and you will be driving the best products Infiniti has to offer.
 
Happy New Year to you and Kathleen, I wish you both all the best.
 
Thank you,

Dear Dr. Diamond,

I was diagnosed with a optic nerve Schwannoma a week ago after two visits to ophthalmologists, one visit to an optometrist, and a visit to an ENT. The ENT ordered an MRI and CT, found it, and referred me to the ................where .......diagnosed a cavernous orbital hemangioma, and has penciled me in for surgery this next Monday.

I believe I need more information to proceed. I have all my records (CT/MRI), and am searching for treatment options via the Internet and several medical associates. I found you at "Steve's Eye Surgery." (What a great site!) I would like to speak (or exchange email) with you regarding your team approach. I am convinced I need more than an ophthalmologist. I want to move quickly, and respect you are undoubtedly a very busy man. Please reply by email or advise of an appropriate time when I may call to speak with you at your convenience.

I look forward to your reply.

Thank you.

Hi Dr. Diamond,
 
I sure have missed seeing you at Surgical Eye Associates.  I'm working with Dr. Eric Griener now.  I absolutely love working with the babies & children, but I miss learning from you about retinal problems. 
 
Dr. Griener wanted me to find out from you if he could come by to see the new EyeCap SL cameras that you just put in @ Tulane.  He will be in the New Orleans area at the end of June, and wanted to know if it would be okay to drop by to take a look at them.
 
By the way, your site is absolutely great.

Dear Professor,
                       Hi this is Brian from Malta. Just a few lines to say that we are going to organize our M.O.N.A. annual seminar and we expect it to be as successful as last year's. We are going to allocate 15minutes to a number of speakers who are mainly going to be nurses and doctors. If you feel like it we will be honored to include your contribution and maybe this year you will have enough time to prepare another excellent piece of work as last year's.

Dear Professor,

                           Hello this is Brian from Malta. Finally we have opened the first dedicated Eye Centre in Malta. We are doing almost all type of ophthalmic surgery and diagnostic exercises. Refractive surgery is flourishing and I am very pleased to say that all the ophthalmic consultants are attending over here. This year we are looking forward to start performing vitrectomies. We are getting a very good feedback from the North African countries and European clients have started to show interest in the Eye Centre. Well I hope you are O.K. and look forward to show you around when you're here. Your website is super and we really appreciate the things you said about our island keep it up Professor

Hi Jim!

You have once again become the latest talk of the town (or country because we are too small) because of your great website. All the nurses working with me and the ophthalmologists really enjoy looking at the nice pictures you put up there. My father in law was also fascinating by the pictures of the small aircraft as he is very keen on flying.

Hi Jim and Kathleen ...

Hope you're all okay. Your website is cool, especially the section about Malta - keep up the good job. It's really nice to know that someone from far away loves this tiny island so much.

How's the weather in New Orleans? Here we're waiting for the hot temperatures - I just hope summer starts sooner rather than later!

It was really nice to hear from you .. take care, keep in touch and hope to see you soon.

Dearest Jim.

What an awesome website! I am impressed. Look forward to another canyon ranch trip. I called Sheila and advised I was in.

Hi Jim!
Congratulations for the formidable web site. It is very interesting and well built up. I have passed the URL to Albert Bezzina, John Grech Hardie and Franco Mercieca. I shall be passing it to Thomas Fenech and Jan Janula as well.
Enjoyed very much the slot dedicated to Malta even though it is still under construction.
I have showed the web site to my wife and she said that you still look handsome (so I got gelous).
 
See you soon

Congratulations Jim----where do you get the time? You are starting to loosen up and zero in on some of the more lasting and important   things in life ie. family, friends--and the time and focus we give them. Tell Kathleen I thank her too; I can't help thinking she was a big supporter in this new adventure for you. Best wishes going forward--JOHN DALTON

Dear Jim,
 
Congratulations on your new and very cool web site.
It has been a pleasure working with you over the past dozen years. The past two years at Tulane and the "old days" at RAL's  Eyecare  Associates. I will always cherish the enthusiasm and encouragement you have given me in my anesthesia practice and in my entrepreneurial adventures. As well, the gracious assistance provided by Kathleen with "EarWings" will always be remembered.
 
Your travel page is great. What a small world we live in. I ran into Andrea and Cathy Apuzzo on a visit to Capri last June. What a beautiful place to visit and what a beautiful family to run into.
 
Have a great time with your web site. Stay well and stay in touch.
 
God Bless America.
God Bless You.
Your Friend,Peter Horowitz

Jim,
    I have been looking at your website and I think it is very nice if you are going for a type of personal web page, not  a more commercial web site.  I think that this is your goal so the site you have now is excellent.   The things I would  suggest are:

   1. you need to change the title of the page on the first page.  It just says: “my web site”    2. the video you have on the first page is neat and it works fine but it is about 5mb in size and for my and you that is fine because we can quickly download the video without any wait, but for the average person who is not as close as we to the web server, this video may freeze there computer or make the website completely un-viewable as downloading the movie will lock up all their bandwidth (like if they were on  a modem).  I suggest you make a new page that just has the movie on it and     then put a link to that page on the  first page of your site.  However, you should also put a warning  next to the link that the video on the next page is a 5mb one.

 That’s about all I can find in terms of recommendations. Your site is very through and nice, and it also is served  off  a fast server  (I-55  Internet Services - great people to deal with for those interested)

Hello Dr. Diamond,
         You don't know me but you were staying at the Drake Hotel in Chicago this past weekend and spoke with my mom, Terry Wagner who is one of the hotel operators. You asked her to take a look at your website that you built & for her to let you know what she thought of it. I am my mother's link to the Internet, all the way from Minneapolis, MN....lol.......So, she had me go to your site & give my two cents for her.
          You've done a very good job with your site. I especially enjoyed the video clips area. I wasn't aware that you could start a video clip by simply moving your mouse over the frame. Jeez, what one can do with HTML these days.....I have high-speed Internet so the clips didn't take long to load at all.
           Congratulations, Dr. Diamond. You are blessed with a beautiful family, diverse friends, a job that you really enjoy and the time to share your traveling adventures with the world via your website! The life & times of Jim Diamond are interesting indeed. Take care.
                                                                                            Sincerely,
                                                                                            Tonya LaNette
 
P.S. My mom says "Hello" & thank you for being a terrific guest!

Hello,

I just came upon your website and noticed you are good friends with Mr. Don Fox. I've been trying to contact him for some time. I'd like to ask him a few questions. Perhaps you could provide me an email address of his? I'd appreciate it very much.
Thank you for your time.

Best regards,
Scott
