We and our son were treated with great respect and empathy.

Don, Joyce and Ben Carpenter, Patient

My son Benjamin who is 28 years old and has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy was just a patient yesterday in the outpatient surgery department. From Julie at the reception desk, Kristen, PCA, Jean, RN, Jade, RN, Lois, RN, Nick McCarty, RN, Brian, PCA and Donna, RN in presurgical registration to Dr. Nicholson, Dr. Potluri and Dr. Peter Coles, we and our son were treated with great respect and empathy. Because of his disease we had many concerns regarding the type of anesthesia he would receive and on Friday before his surgery we met with Dr. Coles who was extremely knowledgable about these issues and put us all at rest. And, as usual, Ben made us very proud as he did so well with everything. He even said to us, “You have to make light of it, Mom.” Being a former PICU nurse, I am so cognizant of Bronson positivity; your outpatient surgery department showed us that. Please thank all of them for us.
