Kristen had a way of making me feel loved and important. I was not just her patient, but a person.

I started to experience chest pain, which I ignored and thought was heartburn.  Heartburn meds were unsuccessful and caused more pain.  A troponin test was done, and that test confirmed I had experienced a heart attack.  Within seconds, the cardiologist team was in my room.  I was scared but I  felt secure knowing my life was in the hands of wonderful, skilled experts.

I don’t remember much of the procedure but what I do remember, is waking up to the most beautiful face and smile, Nurse Kristen.  She is my MVP.  It was such a pleasure to have her around talking to me, explaining meds, and explaining procedures.  Kristen had a way of making me feel loved and important.  I was not just her patient, but a person.  Kristen’s words and kindness reassured me that all would work out and be okay.   My entire experience at MacNeal was truly life changing.  I take with me a memory of great people and staff.  I will remember this entire team for the rest of my life.

Thanks MacNeal for such a wonderful team. My MVP's.  Full praises to them!
