Patient Testimonials

“Compliments to the entire process at Good Samaritan. From the moment I walked in the door the process was all thumbs up all the way around. Pre and postop everything was great, I was well prepared, the level of service and attitude was all fantastic. RNs, PAs, entire staff, postop everyone was great.

Emily and Monica were great and inspired super-high confidence; their follow up and bedside manner was fantastic. The surgeon and surgical team made me feel comfortable and were very professional. Super happy with whole team for making people feel at ease–other hospitals could learn from you. The process was silky-smooth and I was well received, everything was great. You were good at facilitating transitions to SNF. It was a quite positive experience. The Anesthesiology team was great, super positive, professional attitude. Good Sam is wonderfully professional with a very positive attitude-when people are upbeat, patients feel more positive about everything.”
