Stories from Doctor’s Day 2018
My grandfather was recently admitted to the hospital from his primary care doctor for a low hgb. Dr. Mederos was on call in the ER that afternoon and took care of him. Dr. Mederos went out of his way that evening to call me at home (with permission of course) to let me know what was going on with my grandpa. He was admitted that night and the next day had a colonoscopy that revealed a large mass in his colon. Dr. Deutsch was consulted and was amazing at making sure they took all the right moves to properly treat him. He was admitted on a Wednesday night and my little sister was graduating vet school in Auburn, AL that Saturday. Dr. Deutsch and Dr. Mederos did all they could do to "beef" up his hgb and then let him discharge that Friday so he wouldn't miss his granddaughters college graduation. Dr. Deutsch personally called my at home Thursday night to tell me results (with permission from my grandfather) of his CT scan. They went above and beyond to make sure he was taken great care of. Since then my grandfather has had surgery and is home doing great, just waiting on the next steps. I have worked with Archbold for almost 8 years and worked closely with Dr. Deutsch and Dr. Mederos numerous times, but never has it been my own family, which makes it totally different because it's personal. They treated myself and my family with the utmost respect. I am proud that I work at such a great facility and with great doctors that will take care of our family as if it were their own.
