I would like to express my gratitude to the entire medical staff who attended to my physical and emotional needs.
I would particularly like to thank surgeon Dr. Frimer and anesthetist Dr. Dong for both their medical expertise and people skills. I found both doctors to be empathetic, yet highly professional, in all their interactions with me. In previous surgeries, I’ve experienced extreme nausea/vomiting from the anesthetic, post-op. This was not my experience this time. The doctors gave me “a magical cocktail” of anesthetic, and when I woke, post-surgery, I felt fine. I was able to walk out of Richmond Hospital on the same day as my surgery, feeling quite human!
I would also like to thank all the OR nurses andtechnicians. Each interaction I had with all staff was professional, competent, and compassionate.
Kudos to the medical staff at Richmond Hospital!
