Chris never left my husband; he was by his side aware of his every movement and need.

My husband came out of a quadruple bypass and Chris was his nurse. Chris was very kind and compassionate toward my husband and me. What really stood out about Chris was his work ethic. Chris never left my husband; he was by his side aware of his every movement and need. I felt so much at peace as I watched him work throughout the night, checking all the "To Do's" of post-op. Even with the breathing tube down my husband's throat, Chris figured out what he needed. Chris explained what he was doing and how it was in my husband's best interest. He took the time to explain everything we needed to know. He never stopped working. He was diligent to take care of every detail. I admired that he is hard working and humble at spirit, while taking care of his patient and his patient’s wife. Chris just did all he needed to do. People like Chris are rare. He has been all we have talked about all day. Thank you, Chris, for making this scary experience a peaceful one. You are one of a kind. Thank you for being you.
