Marie's story

I was recently in the Cardiac Diagnostic Testing lab as well as the Cath Lab. I wanted to take a minute to let Sarasota Memorial know about some fantastic team members.

In the Diagnostic Testing Lab, Angela (nurse) and Lorraine (echo tech) were outstanding! They made me feel comfortable, answered any questions I had and did an all-round terrific job! In the cath lab…First, hats off to Jan! I am a hard stick patient.

One of those that every phlebotomist or tech cringes over. It is very difficult to draw blood on me or start an IV. Jan took on the challenge and came through with flying colors! She was able to start my IV with only one stick and also have it in a spot that caused the least amount of discomfort…Wow! So very impressed by her patience and skill. She was a doll.

All the nurses during my time in the Lab were wonderful. Special kudos though to Tim. He cared for me after my procedure and he too was top-notch! Excellent care! Wonderful bedside manner, great attitude. Reported to the doctor my pain needs and nipped it in the bud immediately. He made an unpleasant time as comfortable as possible, answered questions,but above all was kind and caring.

Thank you, Tim!
