Going The Extra Mile

Prior to "MDVIP" I had an occasion where I was feeling weak and disoriented. I called Dr Ross's office and made an appointment for that morning. My wife and son-in-law had to use a wheel chair to get me from the car to the office where I was immediately taken to a treatment room and a blood test was ordered, the results of which indicated a hemoglobin level of 7. Dr. Ross was called into the room and quickly determined that I was experiencing an internal bleed. EMS was called, and since the office was directly adjacent to the hospital I was on a gurney shortly after the call. I was to be taken to the ER for further evaluation...Dr. Ross suggested that the gurney be moved by the EMS personnel on the walkway between the office and the hospital, as it would be quicker that loading me into the back of the vehicle. To my surprise, Dr, Ross walked with us to the ER and upon arrival took the necessary steps to ensure a treatment protocol. As we were discussing surgery a friend whose specialty was Gastroenterology came by and inquired about the situation. My next memory was waking up in a post surgical unit as I was experiencing a GI bleed. There is no question in my mind that without the intervention and diagnosis by Dr. Ross, the outcome may have been much worse.

When I learned that Dr Ross was to become associated with MDVIP , I initially hesitated. But, I later realized that since this practice had saved my life once, perhaps this needed to be my permanent "home" for personal healthcare. I will forever be indebted to Dr. Ross and his professional staff for their past treatment, as well as the treatment received since becoming a member of the MDVIP program. These individuals are not only "professionals" in the medical system; instead, they have become "friends" as well!
