Positive Words From Our Patients

“The nurses were excellent. It was difficult because I was in a lot of pain. However, they remained professional. I couldn’t get comfortable in the waiting room because I was in pain and the security guard went in and grabbed a doctor who brought me in. It was a very clean & controlled environment!”

Positive Words From Our Patients

“The nurses were very caring. Doctors addressed concerns. I was well taken care of and everyone was very helpful.”

Positive Words From Our Patients

“I would like to recognize the nurses, aides, LPNs, recovery team, transport team, and the whole dialysis unit from 5 West. And I’ll never forget about *George from dialysis.”

Positive Words From Our Patients

“Food was very good. I would like to recognize 5 West, they were also very good to me! I was treated with great respect, everyone was very professional. I am grateful for you all.”
