What Our Patients are Saying

"I had to bring my 4-week-old son in this morning for some scans in radiology. He had to fast for four hours beforehand so I was pacing the halls to soothe him. Three employees asked if I needed help and a fourth asked if she could get me anything. All of that within 15 minutes of walking. Then radiology got us back almost 30 minutes early. And everyone from check-in to these scans has been so warm, friendly, and professional. We're still here, but they've made me feel at ease and that they personally care." -Katie Y.

"We went today with my husband in a lot of pain. He had a pilonidal cyst. Dr. Felix was amazing and went out of his way to give us the best care. He could have sent us on our way with antibiotics but instead he came back and did an ultrasound and decided to lance the cyst out. And come to find out antibiotics wouldn't have helped it was so bad. So if Dr. Felix wouldn't have had a second thought and act on it, my husband would still be hurting." - Andrea A.

"I've been here in the birthing center for 2 days now (I'm 38 weeks pregnant) with a strong infection, and I've never had a better experience in a hospital. Dr. Andrews is the best doctor there is, and every staff member down to the cafeteria staff is absolutely fantastic. I couldn't ask for a better experience and I will be glad to have my child here." Michelle M.

"These doctors, nurses, EMT's and support staff have been professional, compassionate and comforting to me and my family. They saved my life Friday. Nobody wants to have an extended stay in the hospital, but these folks have made it easier. They have been straightforward about the prognosis and direction we need to go. I can't say enough about these people, so for now, I'll just have to settle for a huge thank you." Ronald R.
