To the editor:
I had cataract surgery performed by Dr. Greg Temas at Yadkin Valley Community Hospital on May 13th, and I would like to commend the staff on duty that day for the excellent care I received. Sharon, Margaret, Alissa, Barbara, Diane, Kelly and Courtney were a wonderful team that gave me the best care I could have asked for. Dr. Temas did an outstanding job on my surgery and I am very pleased with the outcome. Sometimes the surgeon is most recognized for a successful operation and the support staff may be taken for granted, and I want to make sure that does not happen here.
From start to finish the entire process was handled professionally, efficiently, and kindly. I was experiencing a great deal of anxiety going in to the procedure, and everyone I came into contact with recognized my feelings and made a point to reassure me. I particularly want to thank Courtney for her constant communication with me and for personally ensuring that the sedation medication was sufficient for my comfort throughout the operation.
You have an exceptional staff there at Yadkin Valley Community Hospital, and I will recommend your hospital to anyone needing cataract surgery. I very much appreciate the superior care I received there.
