I had my first experience in Abington Surgical Center on Friday, January 24, 2014.…I was greeted with bright eyes and smiles at 7:16 a.m.; my intake process was quick, accurate, and efficient, and my surgery prep was most comfortable. The RN who administered my IV drip did so with precision and ease despite my long history of poor, uncooperating veins….I wish to take the opportunity to thank all of the staff that I encountered on that day….Thank you for your kindness and display of the tru…
We’ve never been in a healthcare facility where it was so warm and where the people made us feel so welcome and special. My husband did so well there and it was an incredible experience for us both. The staff was wonderful and so caring unlike any we’ve ever experienced.
Everyone was so kind. I was terrified especially because I came alone, but the staff made me feel comfortable and safe. I know the staff was so busy because of the weather, but they never made me feel rushed. They took very good care of me.
After surgery, I had no pain. Someone from Abington Surgery Center called me early the next day. She was very nice, and I felt I could ask questions if I needed to. I cannot say enough.
Everyone was wonderful. Thank you.
The professionalism of the Abington Surgical Center staff and Dr. Guba was exceptional. They explained the procedure that they were performing on my son and asked me if I had any questions or concerns. After surgery, Dr. Guba updated me on the progress. I personally couldn’t have asked for more.
The nursing staff was very friendly and nice, helping me to understand everything that was going on, step by step, with my procedure. My every need was met, from the warm blanket to the cold cup of ginger ale.
The staff walked my mother and me through the process, and that was all we needed…I was frequently asked by multiple staff members if I needed any blankets to keep me warm while waiting to enter the surgery room….The nurse helped me with everything…She allowed plenty of recovery time for me….
