We wanted to thank all doctors and staff who have been involved with “Pandora’s” care. It is reassuring to know that help is available 24/7 during such a difficult time in our lives. Pandora has been my world for over 17 years and not one moment has been taken for granted. She is my hero and I treasure every day I have left with her. I hope that we will not see you again anytime soon, but just in case…we are glad, you are there.

Our best,

Lynn & Pandora

Dear Dr. Harnett and Dr. Mallinckrodt:

Russell and I can’t thank you enough for giving our Pipsqueak more time with us.  He recovered well and is like his old self again, jumping, running, playing and being his little spunky self.  Because of the wonderful care you and your staff gave him, we are cherishing every day with him.  Bringing him to your hospital was the best decision we could have made.  We wish you Happy Holidays from the bottom of our hearts.

We brought our black lab Waylon in this past Sunday evening for urgent care.  We have had previous experiences with your facility and staff, in person and telephonically, and have always received outstanding care. This past visit was nothing but awesome as well. We want to thank you for providing Waylon, and us, with professional, compassionate, wonderful care.  As a healthcare professional I feel I am a fairly good judge of quality healthcare. I continue to be impressed by your staff and facility.

Thank you again! Waylon is feeling much better and has pretty much returned to baseline!

Keep up the wonderful work!

Steven, Carol, and Waylon Palmer
