Patient treated well at CPH

After 40-plus years living in the Central Kenai Peninsula area I finally spend approximately three days under the care and supervision of the staff of Central Peninsula Hospital. What an experience. One thing that struck me was the lack of that ol’ hospital smell, you know that antiseptic odor or whatever. Secondly a private room complete private bath, refrigerator, telephone and TV plus an extensive list of DVDs to choose from. Top it all off with “on demand” service at the push of a button.

I especially want to thank “my” surgeon Dr. David King and his assistant surgeon Dr. Latin. Unfortunately I did not have the pleasure of meeting Dr. Latin as I was in “LaLa Land.” However if Dr. King requested him to assist that means he had confidence in him. Nuff said. What was estimated to be 2 hours or so of tricky laparoscopic surgery turned into five but those gentlemen “got ‘er done.” It’s been less than a week as I write this and I’m virtually pain free and getting around just fine.

Additionally I wish to thank Dr. King’s office staff, they are professional and efficient and they all have a great sense of humor. The same can be said for all the staff that had to deal with me at CPH. There was not a “Nurse Ratchet” in the bunch. Thanks so much guys and gals and may God bless.
