Total Confidence in Highlands Medical Center
We are always seeing ads to ask us to shop at home, spend our dollars locally so that our community will see the benefit of our dollars. A couple of weeks ago I had the opportunity to spend my dollars here or out of town, and I chose to spend them locally. Why do so many Jackson Countians spend their medical care dollars out of town? Many folks do not have an option and that I understand. In this particular case, I had a choice, and I decided to have my not so elective surgery done at Highlands Medical Center. The care I received could not have been better.
From the time I checked into the hospital, until the time I checked out the next day, the treatment I received was outstanding. Within 20 minutes of my arrival at Highlands I was receiving personal care from Dr. Andrew Hodges and was being briefed on what was going to be taking place within the next few hours. First, I was evaluated in radiology. Once back in my room I was visited by Dr. Charles Lovelady and scheduled for surgery that afternoon. By this time it was approaching late afternoon on Friday. At 4 p.m. on a Friday, I was moved to surgery.
I had a choice to make as to my healthcare and could not be happier with the care I received from everyone from the doctors, surgeon, nurses and support staff at Highlands Medical Center. This I do know. I received first class care from everyone I came into contact with Highlands Medical Center.
Dr. Charles Lovelady came by my room a couple of times that afternoon to explain the procedure and to see if I had any questions. He was also very up front with me and said that there was a possibility that I could be referred on to Huntsville for another procedure if needed. I had total confidence that the staff had my best health care and recovery in mind.
I could not be more pleased with the level of professional care that I received at Highlands Medical Center. I hope I do not need their services again, but if I do, I have total confidence that they will provide me with the same professional care that I just received. Thank you for all you do.
