Default Does this work steptaker & applicant guide?

I am 2008 IMG with green card, ECFMG certified on April: step1 226, CK 245, passed CS all on first attempt. 2 weeks observership in one of the major US university hospitals with one LOR . Aiming at pediatrics or IM.
My question is that there's a famous US doctor practicing for over 35 years that was unable to give me an observership but because she knows me at a personal level she said she can write a letter stating that I am a good standing person, intlegint and motivated!!! She noticed that when my daughter was admited under her direct care for 2 weeks at the hospital where she works.
Does this work? can I consider it a LOR?
Thanks in advance.
