I felt completely cared for and that extended through my entire stay

Heather Ballentine , Patient

I had an appointment June 22nd with Dr. Minnick to discuss the possibility of surgery to address the abdominal pain I had been struggling with for months. He explained that I had gallstones and he’d actually like to admit me for surgery immediately! He made sure that I knew it was my choice but advocated for me being taken care of as soon as possible. He made the call, got me admitted and his MA, Herb, actually took me by wheelchair to the admit unit. I felt completely cared for and that extended through my entire stay. The surgery staff was wonderful. I couldn’t have asked for a better anesthetist than Dr. Daufenbach or nurse anesthetist than Andrew B. They listened to my concerns and did everything they could to make sure I was as comfortable as I could be. I also appreciated the way that every nurse and aid on the GSU floor made sure to give me the time to rest and heal that I needed. I’ve been working for Bronson for nearly 10 years and I am so happy to be able to say, the staff here continues to exceed my expectations at every opportunity.
