Bill Cummins still can’t get over the care he received at Reid Hospital in 2010.
It all began with a visit to his family physician, Dr. Tina Reichley.Bill was concerned about feeling short of breath. Dr. Reichley referred him to Reid cardiologist Dr. Robert Fleming for tests; within the month, Bill was scheduled for coronary artery bypass surgery to improve blood flow to his heart.
Reid cardiovascular surgeon Dr. John Kuhn performed the surgery on April 1, 2010. “Dr. Kuhn was the best, and so were all the nurses who took care of me,” Bill says. “They were good to my family, they answered my questions, they motivated me and I was just thoroughly pleased with them.”
After discharge, Bill returned to Reid for 12 weeks of cardiac rehabilitation. Today, he is back to enjoying retirement and is feeling great. “Everyone at Reid was helpful, friendly and cordial, and the hospital had all the rehab equipment you could need,” Cummins said. “I was absolutely amazed how good everything was. I would recommend Reid to anyone.”
