Thank you Knudson and Team

26 Oct

After I crushed my knee joint in a horse riding accident, I was pretty sure I was never going to walk again. Being fiercely independent and physically active, it was a life changing event being told I would be non-weight bearing for 4-6 months, would spend 6-12 or more months recovering, and my knee would never be the same.

Dr. Knudson and PA Paula and RN Sandy, as well as anesthesiologist Dr. Lane, were wonderful with my many questions and concerns over 18 months of recovery. I had frustrations along the way, but each of them rose to the challenge.

Getting to know these people has inspired me to take on new challenges and make positive changes in my life.

I will always be thankful to Dr. Knudson and staff. I recommend him and his team to all of those with orthopedic needs. I know I will be back for future knee issues, an eventual knee replacement, and any other ortho needs that arise.

Dr. Knudson, once again, thank you for putting my knee back together!

The Best Nurses

5 Oct

I just wanted to give a special thank you for all the wonderful care I received from Melinda at Mercy Hospital in Oelwein. She made me feel comfortable and took the time to help me. Your nurses are the best. The care I received both times was outstanding. Going the extra mile is exactly what Melinda did, and I can tell she cares about her patients. Thanks for your kindness and wonderful spirit. It sure helps when you don’t feel well.

I Received Great Care

5 Oct

Last week I was a patient at the hospital and I received great care! The nurses, from the time that I entered the emergency room until I was wheeled to my car, were the most caring and concerned that I think that I have ever encountered.

I had to have surgery and the nurses on the fifth floor in particular, Betty were angels. They showed great concern for the amount of pain that I was in and worked very hard to keep me comfortable and happy.

I also felt very fortunate that when I went into the emergency room it was about 10 minutes from a shift change and instead of letting me sit in pain until the new staff came on Brandy immediately helped me get comfortable and got pain meds on board to help relieve the pain that I was in.

I can’t say enough of how impressed that I was with the care that I received and have told many people just that!

Thank you,


Treated Mom Great

5 Oct

My Mom took a pretty bad fall a week ago and had some relatively serious complications that involved surgery. She is in the intensive care unit at Covenant Medical Center and I just wanted you to know that all the nurses, doctors and support staff at Wheaton have been wonderful. Mom is receiving exceptional care. Our family is very grateful for the excellent care and treatment we have all experienced from the staff at Wheaton. Please pass our sincere gratitude on to everyone.

Thanks again,


Care From A Traffic Accident

5 Oct

I am writing a letter of thanks to you. First of all, we would like to inform you that we were still able to follow our plan and return to Japan together.

We fully appreciate your assistance and support to us when those of us that were injured in a traffic accident received care in your hospital on the 15th of October. In spite of being total strangers, you gave us your utmost attention and assistance.

We think that your hospital has the best system to receive a patient who is a stranger to your area. We felt comfortable and at ease during our examination. We also appreciate the help of the police, rescue personnel, firemen and Red Cross volunteers. Again we thank you very much!

Best Regards,
