Although I live in Ottumwa, I recently decided to seek medical care and
treatment at the Great Urology Clinic at Great River Health Systems in
West Burlington, IA. Other than marrying Dr. Mariannette Miller-Meeks
(who is employed by GRHS), seeking care at GRHS is undoubtedly the second
smartest decision I have ever made.
I have worked in health care since 1971 either as a medic, staff nurse,
operating room nurse, nurse educator, or attorney, and I can say without
reservation that my experiences at Great River Urology and GRHS far exceeded
my expectations. From the moment I first walked into the Great River Urology
Clinic I was treated with the utmost professionalism, courtesy and respect
by every member of the clinic team. The clinic manager, administrative
staff and nursing personnel were superb.
My physician, Dr. Matthew Knudson, is an outstanding clinician with an
exceptional bedside manner. His heartfelt care and compassion was evident
at every stage of my treatment. When I had surgery at GRHS, I also learned
that Dr. Knudson is a proficient and skilled surgeon. I also want to compliment
the entire surgical team, including the anesthesiologist and recovery
room team. They were simply outstanding!!
And last but not least, the nursing staff who took care of me during my
postoperative overnight stay were of the highest caliber. No matter how
busy they were at any particular time, they made me feel as though I was
their only patient. I am so grateful I was under their care. I found the
entire GRHS patient care team to be exceptional healthcare providers.
Thank you Great River Urology and GRHS for taking care of me. Job well done!!
