Dr. Ferkel and New MLB Hall of Famer, Frank Thomas
We are very honored to extend a special congratulations to Frank Thomas on being inducted into the Major League Baseball Hall of Fame!
Frank Thomas was a patient of our very own, Dr. Richard Ferkel, and he had some very kind things to say.
Transcript - "But I have to say one special thank you to Dr. Richard Ferkel. Yes, Dr. Ferkel is here. You repaired my navicular fracture when everyone said I was done. I was sitting at 452 home runs and you looked at me and said, "I'm going to get you back on the field." You never doubted putting me back there and you helped me finish my career. And getting to Cooperstown, I never thought it would happen. I thank you, you mean so much to me and you mean more to me now as a friend. Thank you, Dr. Ferkel."
