My dad had a heart attack in mid March and was transferred to Deaconess Gateway for surgery. Everything that could go wrong, did. NOT the fault of Deaconess! They are FABULOUS. But dad was not strong before the surgery, and he just had a lot of complications. After a month in the hospital, he was transferred to Select where he currently is now. Dad arrived at Select on the ventilator with a tracheostomy, a central line from dialysis, a PEG line for feeding, as he was unable to eat anything, and a cath. He was transferred from Deaconess ICU to Select ICU. We entered Select and were immediately met with the sweetest greeter. They have been nothing but sunshine. Mary gave up a tour of the facilities and she was nothing but kind, compassionate and helpful. In the 2+ weeks dad has been here, we’ve had the opportunity to meet numerous staff. They are the sweetest, most caring and compassionate personnel you could ever hope for. And I do mean everyone. Doctors, nurses, assistants, therapy, housekeeping. They are great. The CEO brought in a whole team to meet my mom and talk to her about their goals. The CEO gave mom his cell phone to call night or day if she needed. Dad has the dialysis line out, he has been totally weaned of the ventilator, and now the trach is out, they taught him how to swallow and eat again, and are working on building up his strength. He was stage 1 in the beginning (ICU) and is now at stage 3. Stage 6 means a patient is able to get up, walk around, and go to the bathroom on their own, so dad is half-way there. He has very poor appetite, so the PEG line is still in, but feedings are down, which is yet another move forward. And should your loved one have a complication, they are on top of that, too. Dad had an “episode” and it really scared him and mom. The doctor came right in, ordered tests, and got a cardiologist on the job. The cardiologist had him moved to Deaconess Downtown for further tests, which all turned out fine. They even had his original surgeon in on the care. So dad is back at Select, getting stronger, joking with the nurses, and slowly, steadily working towards moving on to the next step. It will be a long road. He has been through so much and it will take much to get him back to where he wants to be. But we have NOTHING but PRAISE for the whole staff at SELECT, and can only say; “God BLESS ‘EM!

Before my appt w/ Dr Sanapati I read reviews to see what others had experienced. Honestly I was concerned bc there were so many bad reviews. Many were a few years old - it's apparent AASC had improved on those complaints. I did not have any major complaints. Before my appt the ofc mgr called to confirm & she was helpful in preparing me for the procedure. The ofc environment was very clean & organized. My total wait time from the time I arrived to the time I was called back - 30 min. Not bad! The entire staff was friendly & helpful (front desk, nurses, anesthesiologist, & dr). I was given adequate instructions for at-home care & follow up. Both the anesthesiologist & Dr were good to explain what to expect. The ONLY 2 things that could use improvement was better communication w/ us to discuss our costs & insurance coverage & no opportunity to talk to the Dr again after the procedure. I would have liked to ask a few questions. Would I recommend their facility to others? Yes! Thanks AASC!
Love, love, love Dr. Anthony Kaiser! He is a GREAT surgeon. He took extra care from start to finish and after only a few days, I was nearly back to better than normal and after 4 incisions I will likely not have any scarring. The pre and post nurse and anesthesiologist were all awesome, too. I would highly recommend Dr. Kaiser, and the Evansville surgery center at gateway, for any general surgery. Thank you for taking such good care of me!
