Having just gone through a colonoscopy myself this week (10/28) I read with interest the comments from another person about the “Dreaded Colonoscopy” (20 Oct). I totally agree with this person, it couldn’t have been said better! I too had a very positive experience with Dr. Mujica, the hospital, nurses and staff. Thank you so much!!

Dreaded Colonoscopy

20 Oct

OK, it had been 5 years, and I have a family history of Colon Cancer, so my Primary Care Physician (Dr. Heindl) referred me to Dr. Mujica for a colonoscopy. This was my third time, so I knew the drill. But I was still a little apprehensive, just because of the nature of the procedure. But from end to end (pardon the bad pun) the experience was made much better by the caring, professional staff that worked with me. Dr. Mujica, of course, is really good, everyone knows that. But the nice ladies who got me ready to go were very thorough, friendly, and thoughtful. Taunya, Karen, Tina, Colleen and Jo were great to me and my wife throughout the whole experience, and I was in and out in no time, without any pain or complications or discomfort. Comparing having the procedure done at the two “other” hospitals in Waterloo with having it done at Sartori is no comparison. Much less stressful, a lot friendlier staff, and an altogether better experience.

Thank you all so much for making my dreaded colonoscopy like a walk in the park.

Tube Surgery

6 Oct

They treated me like I was at my house and my nurses and doctor were very nice. They made me comfortable. They even gave me a popsicle and something to drink. It was amazing. It rocked! I had the best time.

Bunion Funion

I have been dreading this surgery. My experience started at the Registration desk, I walked up to the 2 ladies in bright colors and of course the names escape me lol. I asked if they were the ones to talk to and they said as long as I had cookies. The conversation rolled into me asking for cupcakes after surgery. The lady that took me to my room asked if we were friends because we were laughing so hard. Then when I got in the room the nurses all got into the act because I kept butchering the Doctors’ names. We had laughter my whole visit and I seemed to kinda forget how nervous I was. The man who put me off to lullaby land came in and he was nice and laughed right along with us, and I also met my Doctor for the first time and he was nice as well. All I can say is the visit was very positive so glad I made the choice I did.

They Eased All My Fears and Anxiety

5 Sep

Yeah I was on the naughty list with my family physician as I skipped a few years of having a mammogram. Then earlier this year when I did follow-up on the referral for a mammogram the WHFC Mammography Department sent me a message that I needed to come back in for additional imaging as some scattered calcification’s were denoted. Of course this news was scary and my anxiety level was high. But thanks to the support and professionalism of the staff in this Department I was made to feel at ease and my anxiety was reduced greatly. The staff took their time explained the reason for the additional testing and the procedures that they would be using. I would recommend the WFHC Mammography Department to all of my family members and friends. Dr. Meg, Krista C., Megan, and Kathy, RTRM, you all are the greatest. Thank you for your exceptional dedication and compassion for those you serve.
