I was recently hit with a recurring ailment. Sorry to say I didn’t follow my doctors’ advice on previous bouts. In severe pain, I went to St. John’s Hospital. I know as a 60-year resident of the beach St. John’s hasn’t had a good reputation in Rockaway overall. However, I was really surprised at the level of care I received. Everyone from the admitting staff to the ER and then to the doctors, nurses, and support staff upstairs to where I was taken were great. I saw vast improvements throughout the hospital. I finally opted to have surgery by Dr. Jason Grotus.
I’m home and on the mend now. I am finally listening to my doctor’s advice on how to stop future bouts by changing my eating and drinking habits. Plus, I lost 30 pounds.
