Kathleen T.

When a patient enters a medical office he/she puts himself on-guard for whatever bad news may come his way. But when CANCER is a possibility, a frightful emotion is stirred up. One of the best remedies for nerves is an understanding and comforting. First, nurse who doesn’t treat you like a number but a person with emotions. I have been so greeted with nearly all in your office but my first visit left a continuing impression by Kim Bertman, Thank you.

And Thanks to Litoria who has changed the atmosphere in the lobby with her smile and cheerful welcome.
