    Patient Testimonial

    opening quotation mark Although these sentiments are delayed, they are none-the-less sincere when I say how grateful I am to the entire staff of the Pulmonary Rehab Center, for all that they did to improve my pulmonary function. The individualized attention was greatly appreciated and made me feel like they genuinely cared for the improvement of my health. Your team, under the supervision of Valerie, was professional, knowledgeable, and dedicated as well as personable, making it an enjoyable and beneficial experience. I was extremely surprised that after just after a few weeks of twice-a-week sessions that my lung function as well as my stamina improved measurably.

    Fern and Caridad provided both group and individualized instruction in diet, medications, physical and breathing exercises, as well as discussions regarding the psychological impact of my disease. Andres always encouraged me to push myself to go that extra mile, but within my limits, whether on the treadmill, with weights or with other physical exercises. All of their expertise was instrumental in helping me to modify my lifestyle and improve my lung function. Alissa deserves recognition as well for efficiently orchestrating all of my appointments and correspondences.

    Mikki, I would like to thank you personally for suggesting to my wife Christine, who is a Clinical Instructor for Specialty Practice for Baptist Health, that I look into Pulmonary Rehab as an option; otherwise, I would have not known that this hidden gem existed. quotation marks-close
