Had been having extreme pain in my right arm for months, I had seen two different physicians concerning the pain and swelling. They brushed it off as a symptom of my neuropathy. But I knew this was something totally different! The pain got SO intense I sought out the help of the emergency care center at CRMC, the immediately seventh me to MRI and ultrasound, what they found there saved my life.... For months my life was hanging by a thread... They located a blood clot in my right internal jugular vein, that was causing the blood flow to be partially cut off to my arm, and was extremely painful, They began treatment immediately right there in the ER, and I was admired for a 6 day stay! The staff was AMAZING, they cared, and it showed! I was taken extra care of, every single single staff member from physicians to environmental services were caring and exceptionally polite!
And I didn't have a dime if insurance... But to them it didn't matter, I received the exact care as someone with the best coverage money could buy!
I thank each of them for the care and support,
Most of all I thank them for my life!
Dr. Martinez was one of a kind!
