Categories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionIt has nearly been two months since my husband experienced symptoms of a stroke. His speech was garbled and he had a headache. Other than that, he had no other symptoms. Within five minutes, we were visiting Ellis Medical Center in Clifton Park. Luckily, we live right in the neighborhood. From the time we spoke to the lovely woman at the front desk and our transfer to Ellis, we were treated with a very efficient staff.The nurse manager assessed my husband and the physician assistant (PA) was not far behind him. Both of these men were very professional and kind. They communicated with the doctor and us as the orders progressed. The neurologist and cardiologist were contacted, and plans were made for a transfer to Ellis Hospital for further observation. There were others in and out to help this all go smoothly, and each one treated my husband with the utmost respect. The guys on the ambulance were kind and reassuring and surely knew what they were doing. We were sent to C6 (Neuro Unit).His RN and his team would be taking care of him throughout the night. They were very thorough and made the both of us feel so comfortable and safe. A new team arrived and we were informed of the tests that would be done. We were kept in the loop. Each person that transported or did the test in the room was most kind and respectful. The PA worked diligently to get results back so Dave could go home that day. All we can say is a big thank you one and all at Ellis Hospital.Cass ZilcoskyDave ZilcoskyClifton ParkMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusControversial solar project goes before Clifton Park Planning BoardEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motorists
