First I would like to extend my deepest sympathies to Percyne Gardner and family on their terrible loss. In response to her letter of Feb. 27, I would like to express my satisfaction with some excellent care I received at Alta Vista Regional Hospital.
In the early morning hours of Jan. 28 my husband took me to the ER. I was experiencing severe abdominal pain, and ER Dr. Luchini quickly recognized that what was going on was not normal. She immediately ordered an X-ray, CT Scan and blood work. She then notified the surgeon, Dr. Mario Leyba.
