To The Editor:
Let me first state my reasons for my praise for Northwell Health hospital in New Hyde Park. My wife, Eva, was feeling confused the other day and felt numbness in her right arm and had suffered memory problems. After seeing a local doctor, we were directed to the ER at Northwell Health hospital in New Hyde Park, formerly LIJ.
She was eventually diagnosed with having a mild TIA stroke. What was remarkable was the kindness and the concern of the doctors, nurses, health aids and volunteers. They took us step by step through what had to be done with the many tests that were performed and put us somewhat at ease.
I was very worried about my wife of 30 years. She is not only my wife, but my best friend whom I love dearly with all my heart. I feel at this time that not enough praise can be given to all the doctors, nurses and health aides who go the extra mile and show compassion for all who are ill. I know this firsthand due to my observations in the ER. Let me finally say “kudos” to all at Northwell Health for all that they do extremely well. Thank you.
