Patient expresses gratitude for hospital staff

On Dec. 6, I had carotid artery surgery performed by Dr. David Kastl and his team at Hilton Head Hospital. I encountered 12 to 15 different workers at the hospital in my short stay there, and each and every one of them was totally professional, considerate, thoughtful and caring in every way possible. Dr. Kastl was magnificent, and I understand that his team was handpicked and certainly the best a patient could hope for.

Before my surgery, I had heard conflicting reports regarding the quality of service at the Hilton Head Hospital. I am very pleased to report to anyone who will listen that my experience at Hilton Head Hospital was top-notch, and I will recommend it to everyone.

Thanks to Dr. Kastl and everyone at the hospital for helping to make it happen.
