Being from out of state I was very worried about having to have my son seen but it was neccessary. Once arriving in the er we were greeted, checked in and the receptionist help us to find out if they accepted... more our insurance. The wait to be taken back seemed like forever, specially when your little one is in pain. Once we were taken back the nurses were very friendly and accommodating. The doctor came in and took his time with us. He treated us as he would his own family. Even with the changing of shifts all the nurses were helpful. We had a bunch of test and all the different areas were friendly, helpful and make everything understandable. By the end I felt comfortable that we were leaving with the correct information and results. Thank you for being so kind to us.
I want to thank the nurse's who cared for my sister Lizzie Marshall. Not only are they very dedicated to their jobs, they were caring and very kind. I couldn't be more thankful for their professional and... more spiritual attitudes and the loving and kind way they interacted with my sister and my family. She stayed in CVICU for thirty one days and every time I entered the doors I was recieved with a caring smile and often hugs. I was told of every change that she went through. They also loved on me and made sure i knew all about what they were doing and why. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!!!!!! To a staff of dedicated, professional angels that aided my sister until she made her transition to heaven. You will never be forgotten. God bless you all
