"I want to pay my highest regards, compliments and praise to your
leadership in directing one of the finest of hospitals I've ever been in.
On Nov. 15, I was at my yearly doctor check up at the Chino Hills facility
with Dr. Wohlert who has replaced Dr. Fontan my former physician. I told
her of some chest pain I had recently that happens only when on a brisk
walk. She ran a EKG a couple of times and they both came back with an
inverted T wave which you may or may not know is a huge red flag in the
world of cardiology. She consulted Dr. Mathiau of your top notch cardio
team and he said get me to the main hospital ASAP which my wife and I
did. My wife also works at PVHMC she is a Nurse Manager in the women's
center. Her name is Susan.
Anyway the cardiac team quickly determined through investigative questioning
and 9 more EKG's that a deadly widow maker heart attack was imminent
because the EKG's were progressively getting worse.
I then witnessed a well greased, fine tuned, everybody on the same page
team of intuitive cardiologists, nurses, Cath Lab Crew and support staff
urgently swing into action and literally through their efforts and expertise,
saved my life! Also the cardio recovery as well as the admitting crew
deserve recognition for their urgent diligence. They were all very attentive,
helpful, courteous, patient, and very friendly.
Please share this note with all of them as well the rest of the hospital
staff so everybody can share in my joy at the second chance they've given me.
I owe my life to Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center.
THANK YOU ALL!!"
