From beginning to end everyone was great. I could not ask for more. The best care I have ever had. This was my 14th surgery so I have a lot of experience at different hospitals. Staff Recognition: I can’t pick just one because every staff member was GREAT. I could not ask for more.

2nd go round for therapy. Your therapy department is awesome. Very patient and caring towards me, as well as nurses and CNAs. Staff Recognition: A special thank you to Ms. Diana, Ms. Alyssa, Ms. Stephanie, and last but not least Ms. Lisa. I give them all A+.

Alyssa and Adrian were perfect with pain meds. Some of the other nurses gave them late, so ended up in pain because it wore off.

Alyssa and Adrian were great, Alyssa always went the extra mile.
