The Patient Experience

The following praise comes from the husband of a recent neurosurgery patient at PAH:

I am currently sitting in the surgical waiting room, with my bride in neurosurgery with Dr. Baltuch (Gordon H. Baltuch, MD, PhD, professor of Neurosurgery and director, Center for Functional and Restorative Neurosurgery) and his team. I cannot speak more highly of the treatment and care at this hospital. As early as 5:15 a.m. when we were greeted so warmly by Ms. Bowman (Barbara Bowman, Security officer) at the Security Desk through the folks in Admissions, to pre-op staff and even to Ms. Dorko (Leah Dorko, Family Patient liaison) who is looking out for all of us up here on the 9th floor. PAT admissions and lab folks were wonderful. Medical staff, PT, everyone. I do not normally gush but you folks are worth it. Thank you all.
