"my pleasure to recommend"

"[Bumper "T" Clowns] have been clowning around at Cooper Hospital/University Medical Center, cheering both the pediatric and adult patients alike.
They are experts at medical clowning. I routinely send them in to cheer up some of my patients when they are in the hospital.
I have always gotten favorable reviews from the patients about how much they appreciate the visit from the clowns."
