Teddi thanked Dr. Nassif for his help after the 7-year-old was hurt —?and now we know why.

"I didn't even know she posted something. She's a very sweet lady and, obviously, they needed some recommendations and I was be able to help and get them to the right doctors," Dr. Nassif, who appears on Botched, which airs Mondays on E!, told The Daily Dish in an phone interview this week. "She was very sweet, by the way. Anything I can do to help, obviously especially with my connections, I'd better use them."
