I have absolute and unlimited trust in Dr. Boyer.

October 14, 2013

My main concern is that the side effect of the blood thinner = "shallow breathing" was not discussed. I had problems of shortness of breath or shallow breathing last time I donated stem cells. I had similar, though less intense problems this time. I used my computer to Google the side effects and found that shallow breathing was listed as a side effect. I would have worried less if I expected this possible issue ahead of time

October 11, 2013

Liked that we discussed the game plan

November 20, 2012

They took the time to explain things to my father so he would understand. Use simple explinations with out making him feel as if the questions were not important.

November 20, 2012

Staff went out of their way to make sure both my parents were comfortable and understood the process.

November 02, 2012

Staff was very good at making sure my father understood what they were asking of him and answering his questions. The used words/terminology that he could understand yet did not talk down to him. I felt that the used the correct terminology and then gave him an example of what they were describing or talking about. This provided him with the knowledge of understanding and still hearing the correct terminology so he would have a baseline understanding. Excellent job.

September 17, 2012

They all took there time and we did not feel rushed.

July 23, 2012

February 04, 2012
