The following are actual comments from patients submitted through our kudos page.
"I was very impressed with [the physician's] bedside manner and willingness to answer questions. Very professional and compassionate when we had to discuss my father's living will wishes. Best care we received ever at CAMC."
"My family and I would like to thank the physicians, nurses, and other staff that took care of me and my baby. The staff was excellent...our baby is alive and healthy thanks to your staff and of course God. We are eternally grateful."
"I will never forget how kind the surgical staff was to me during my wait. They kept me supplied with warm blankets and talked to me just like I was an old friend of theirs. After awhile, all of my fears left me and I found myself laughing and actually enjoying the company. By the time the doctor arrived, I was so calm, and it made me feel so good to be treated with such compassion. I will always remember their kindness."
"Although I was one of many patients, I was treated like a VIP."
"I would just like to say that all the staff here is excellent. They are very personable and all about taking care of the patient. I recommend this hospital to anyone, thank you so much for the care you have given my grandson."
"I have found it to be true, there are no words which will ever express how thankful I am, nor do I feel that I will ever find a way to repay them for the wonderful care and serious special attention they gave me.
I hold the most upright respect for those individuals, more so than they could ever imagine."
"I just wanted to thank the anesthesia Dr. and nurse that worked my [procedure]. They were very informative before and during my procedure and made me feel at ease throughout the whole procedure."
"From the very start [the nurse] was compassionate and understanding. She went out of her way to educate us on the treatments and expectations while maintaining a positive attitude. She helped me with insurance issues, doctors' appointments and provided open communication. She has made dealing with a scary time in our lives, much easier. "
