To the editor:
I was recently a patient at UnityPoint Health-Trinity Regional Medical Center in Fort Dodge. I went to the ER on a Saturday morning to see if I could get some relief from very painful muscle spasms in my lower back rib area. I had already been X-rayed in Davenport, and the X-rays showed no broken bones.The staff at UnityPoint Health were very thorough in assessing my health history, and equally thorough in their diagnostic work. After reading a CT that had been ordered, it turned out I did have broken ribs.
Our family has unfortunately spent many hours in various ERs, and it is my opinion that none have been any more caring, friendly, or professional in their tasks as the ER in Fort Dodge. I feel the citizens of Fort Dodge are truly fortunate to have Unity Point Health Systems as a Health Care provider. Thank you to the staff.
