Jessica anticipated my needs and was a healer with a positive attitude and approach.

I was admitted to the ICU via helicopter from another facility after experiencing the total loss of the use of my legs. I was diagnosed with Stage IV lung cancer with mets to the spine. I am a 68-year-old man who had never been hospitalized and I was terrified. Jessica was the one who calmed my anxiety, was responsive to my concerns, and communicated effectively with my wife.

Jessica explained what was going to happen and answered all of my questions in a calm and compassionate manner. She anticipated my needs and was a healer with a positive attitude and approach. She contacted physicians about my concerns and prepared me for the barrage of testing, prodding, and probing. If not for her ministrations, I would have been totally at wit's end. I relied on her expertise and compassion to get me through this difficult time. She was a lifesaver.
