“I wouldn’t hesitate to take my most-pressing health issues to Hemet Hospital”
There are some health issues we know we can deal with because we see them coming: such was the case with my hernia surgery.
An excellent surgeon, Dr. Daniel Igwe of Apex surgery here in Hemet (and Menifee) had fully prepped me and had thoroughly explained the entire procedure.
From my pre-surgical visit to my discharge, everything went as smoothly as possible at Hemet Global Medical Center. The same-day surgical staff, headed by Cinda (to protect the staff only first names will be used) handled all concerns with ease. Before I knew it, Dr. Igwe was ready…and the anesthesia took effect.
After what seemed like only minutes, I was in my room on the fifth floor, room 532. My day nurse Ronnie, and my night nurse Cynthia were true professionals: we discussed my concerns, talked about our families and bonded, as true professionals do with their patients. I had wonderful conversations with everyone on the staff including dear Euclin one of the Nurses Aides.
I left 2 days later feeling completely confident with the convalescent process in the coming days.
Some health concerns we definitely do not see coming: such was the issue when my puppy and I (a wonderful Cairn Terrier mix from the Ramona Animal Shelter) were attacked by an unleashed German Shepherd. See that story elsewhere in this issue.
