“Comforting Staff”

I had my knee replaced at Grant Memorial Hospital in May 2018 by Dr. Roberts.  I was in there for 3 days and they took great care of me from admission to discharge!  That was not my first experience though – I believe I was one of the first patients to the GMH Emergency Room in 1960 when I was a kid and had to go for stitches – I can vividly remember that experience and how comforting the staff was, I’ve had great faith in the hospital ever since.  I was one of Dr. Makani’s first patients and had several procedures and surgeries with him.  I have always been happy with my care from the doctors and staff there – I have never had a bad word to say about any part of my stays.  I like the hospital and staff and have never thought of going anywhere else.

I was in Grant Memorial Hospital this past January for 10 days being treated for a rare type of pneumonia.  I couldn’t have been treated any better, the nurses were wonderful to me.  Dr. Leslie and Dr. Thompson worked with me until I was able to be released.  Followed-up in Harrisonburg with a pulmonary specialist and happy to say my lungs were clear as a bell.  I’d go to GMH again in a heartbeat if I needed care for something.  It would have to be something really major for me not to be able to go there.  And something you normally don’t hear about a hospital – the food was good!  They’d even bring me a snack in the evenings and make sure I had everything I needed.  I’m also a diabetic and they took extra care in my treatment because of that.  Treated me like I was family!
