Share my Patient Story

Recently I was hospitalized as a result of several blood clots in my leg and a pulmonary embolism in my right lung. It was a difficult time but one of the very bright spots was the nursing staff as well as the Nurse Techs.

Edith, Kaylee, Eileen, Mike and Wendy were the excellent, caring, professional nurses who cared for me. All were kind, courteous, respectful and capable.  At a particularly low point when I couldn't sleep and was feeling hopeless, one of the Nurse Techs, Yasmine, brought her laptop into my room so she could keep me company while she completed her paperwork. She was kind and empathetic way beyond what was required. Her concern, compassion and humanity got me through. She is a truly extraordinary person and will be an outstanding nurse. Dr. Huh was another part of my team who was not only extremely knowledgeable but who took the time to listen to my concerns and carefully explain everything to me. Thank you to all the staff for helping me through this crisis.
