I did not exaggerate with my ratings. Furthermore the online rating of Asante in general is far too low. Thanks for taking good care of my problems [NAME]
May 18, 2021
My Nurse Dawn ( Of course I don't know her last name) on the surgery floor impressed me. She was quite efficient to say the least. She asked me questions pertinent to my situation and assured me I was in good hands. . She was quite personable, not only to me but the people around her. We never expect medical personnel to stop and 'chit chat' because we can see just how busy they are. They got quite busy and consequently Dawn was running back and forth as were the others, but she always smiled and acknowledged me as she 'ran' by with a smile, little wave or nod of her head. I have always said I would write down Doctor, Nurses, their assistants and anyone I talked with or observed while waiting to be taken into surgery or taking care of me post-op so I could thank them individually but I didn't - again. This is my opportunity to acknowledge them now. Thank you, sincerely

April 01, 2021
Dr. Fear's medical assistant was wonderful. Did not get her name unfortunately. She stayed with me when the procedure was finished to make sure I was doing okay and able to walk on my own without any dizziness or other symptoms. She even offered stay longer if I needed her to even though most of the other staff had already left. Told me she still had 15 minutes on her shift and she would be happy to stay with me. Wish I had gotten her name but hopefully you can identify her and give her a great commendation from me.
April 01, 2021
Dr Fear discovered a problem that was not part of his specialty. He made multiple phone calls to make sure I had the appropriate treatment and care as quickly as possible.

I hate being sick, but I always look forward to my visits there, because they treat me like family not just a patient. They care about how I feel and also about my opinions and concerns. I have never left there feeling like I needed to know more about my condition and/or treatment.

Janie held my hand during a difficult part of the event and it was MOST appreciated. It appears that the surgery has been successfully completed and I would not hesitate to go through it again with these same excellent health care professionals. The Asante organization should be very proud to have these caring individuals on staff.
