Cheers & Kudos for April 11

I want to take this opportunity to thank Carson Tahoe Hospital for saving my life, when I needed y our care. Especially the emergency room physicians and nurses, the intensive care unit staff, Dr. Gao and Dr. Harper, and the Carson City Fire Department, Jeff and Andy, for making my transfer to the University of California Medical Center as comfortable as possible.

Our community is very fortunate to have the quality professionals you can count on when it is your turn. Someday, each of us will have a medical crises.

There are very few towns the size of Carson City in the United States that have the quality of care that CTRMC provides to its citizens.

Also thank you to Drs. Wolff, Wu and Vazeen for seeing any of my patients that needed help while I was undergoing surgery and recovery.

On behalf of the Fischer family, thank you for taking care of me when I needed you. Hopefully, I shall be able to repay you for your excellent care.
