I am a physician from Denver and a former emergency room physician. My 94-year-old father has multiple complicated medical issues. Hendrick Ardon was unusually sophisticated in his medical knowledge and incredibly compassionate and caring to my father. Always cooperative, attentive to details, and went out of his way as often as needed to give complete care to my father and often to the needs of my family. He is as excellent a nurse as I have ever met!
Hendrick is very, very good at explaining things. He is very organized and does an excellent job. Even after he was not my husband’s nurse, he said: “If you have any questions, just find me!” Very caring individual; he checks and rechecks. He goes out of his way not only for the patient but also for the spouse.
From the time we arrived at the Emergency Room, my husband and I were treated with respect. Each and every doctor and nurse that had any dealings with my husband went above and beyond to make sure he was getting the best treatment he could. My husband was in the hospital for two weeks and the first unit he was on was the Progressive Care Unit. Hendrick was our nurse.
We believe that due to the excellent care and efficiency that Hendrick helped facilitate my husband getting an EKOS procedure and IVC filter, that this helped to save him. Hendrick was always very professional, but he was also very honest with me and let me know exactly what was happening. I felt my husband was being cared for by a wonderful team of doctors and nurses at Lakewood Ranch. We would recommend this facility to each one of our family members and our friends.
