I was in so much pain coming out of surgery I was shaking and crying. William knew exactly what was happening as soon as he saw me. I don’t know exactly what he did, but it made a horrible situation completely turn around.

His presence was awesome in a way that helped me heal. He was gentle and on time with arrivals to deliver my medications. I enjoyed him standing and hanging out with me and my wife.

Kindness, professionalism, patience, knowledge, and thoroughness are his qualities. He is thorough in his actions and attitude which is exceedingly positive and supportive. When I had to have a drain removed from my hip, there was a lot of pain pulling off the tape and the drain was stuck! He held my hand and told me to breathe and visualize a beach. I squeezed his hand until it was over.

I would like to thank the BEST nurse I have ever had. He was awesome! I came from Fort Bragg and was in so much pain. He was always kind and helpful and if I rang for him he was always there.

I was in so much pain coming out of surgery I was shaking and crying. My nurse knew exactly what was happening as soon as he saw me. I don’t know exactly what he did, but it made a horrible situation completely turn around. He ran to get me medications and as far as I am concerned, he is the best nurse you have there. He made sure I was doing what I needed to, to get better, kept up with my care, and made me feel better about everything. I had never been in a hospital and did not understand the routine. He explained everything and was very professional and considerate.

Great sense of humor, great bedside manner, He helped keep me calm and helped me laugh. He is very knowledgeable, communicates well, and is extremely patient. I was (still am) a “mystery” and he kept me updated with each new information every time and catered to my needs ASAP. Great nurse!

First, he knows his job and what needs to be done. Second, he really pays close attention to his patients' medical condition and needs. He also makes sure to listen to his patients' concerns or needs and addresses them ASAP. He treats you as a “person”, not just a job. He gets to know his patients and really shows he actually, truly cares about his patients, each and every one! I have been here for several weeks for IV antibiotics and from the first time he was my nurse, he took the time to get to know me and my medical issues and needs. He always paid attention whenever I had a concern or an issue, he always went out of his way to make sure I was okay and not out it off to the next shift. Thank you so much!
