Dear Stacy: It’s difficult to find the right — or even enough — words to express how thankful my wife and I are for the wonderful care your staff provided to me during my recent month’s long recovery from bladder surgery. From Day 1 every single person with whom we came in contact treated us with respect, patience and kindness and always made us feel that my return to good health was really important to each of them! And, even on days when I took a little step backwards, along with professionalism, everyone brought cheer and even more encouragement...and this was from every level of your staff. It’s just really nice to be able to say, “If we had to go to rehab at any point in the future, Nemasket would be our first choice!” Thank you again for all that you and your staff have done for us! Yours truly, Russell L.
