The friendliness of Bronson – it just feels better

Carole Majka, Patient

Carole Majka suffered hip pain for two years before deciding something needed to be done. “I was tired of feeling older than my age getting into my car, having to grab my pant legs to get myself inside,” Carole said. Dr. David J. Christ of Bronson HealthCare Midwest Orthopedics & Joint Specialists came highly recommended from multiple friends, so Carole scheduled her appointment. She needed a hip replacement and was a candidate for anterior approach.

“I was thrilled,” Carole described and was feeling good two weeks after her surgery. She was walking two miles a day by the time of her three-week checkup. Looking back on her experience, she said: “Bronson was cohesive – between the joint replacement class, nurse navigator and other staff, everybody lent a piece. There was a continuum the whole way through and I knew I was going to be taken care of along the way. I felt completely prepared before surgery and was given thorough instructions for after surgery.” Carole felt comfortable asking questions and described Dr. Christ as being very professional and easy to talk to.

“Bronson is so user-friendly. I was very happy with my choice of hospitals and I would choose it again.”
