My boyfriend, Tucker, just got a double fusion in his back by Dr. Rosenstain. We had a whole weekend of being here. The time we spent here, we were treated with the most care. I couldn't thank the lovely staff enough for everything they did for him. Highly recommend this hospital if you have a surgical procedure. Thank you Christine, Linda, Tatiana and everyone else. ❤️
