What Our Patients Say

"I wish that I had known I could fill out a review sooner. Never have I experienced a more supportive and outstanding medical staff in all of my life. From the time that I called to schedule an appointment, I was treated with respect by the savvy staff at all levels of Sansum Clinic. I was given relevant information from parking and office location with specific details on traveling here and services offered by jubilant staff. When I was seen by Dr. Benjamin Howard, he listened to my grievances with patience and understanding and offered me explanations to accompany his solutions. Following surgery I was contacted personally by the doctor and staff, written a letter, and sent a text message to check on my recovery. Finally, the scar I have from the surgery is minimal and the doctor was able to operate without touching my tattoo! I can't express how wonderful it feels to be treated by benevolent staff who take pride in all they do. In the future I will recommend you all to anyone I know experiencing medical issues."

"I'm writing to say a few words about how wonderful Camp Wheez has been for my two twin girls. Camp Wheez was a busy week filled with crafts, games, drama, and yes, learning about their asthma and how to deal with it. They LOVED camp, and begged to return. I was and continue to be blown away by the generosity of the doctors, nurses and others who volunteered their time and effort to provide a wonderful, fun, and educational week of camp for these kids."

"I think everyone remembers the exact day, if they hear the words, "you have diabetes". For me, it was July 31, 2006. Even though my grandmother and mother both had diabetes, I didn't know much about it and didn't know what to do. I immediately made an appointment with a diabetes educator and I met with her that day. That first meeting changed everything. She asked me what I thought of when I heard the word diabetes and I started to cry. I knew my grandmother had died from complications with the disease and my mother was insulin dependent, had toe amputations and severe vision and neuropathy problems. I was terrified and realized I didn't have a clue about what to do. She took the time to listen to me and then began the process of putting me on a road to success. I learned how to test, read food labels and best of all, felt connected to the help I needed. I quickly signed up for the Diabetes Essentials and Nutrition classes and learned so much. I stopped being so afraid and felt empowered to take charge of my life. I read all the materials and continued to do research and ask questions. I started walking and was soon up to 5 miles a day. After 9 months, I had lost 55 pounds. My husband was very supportive and attended the classes with me. He joked that he had "diabetes by association" and was eating well and exercising with me. The diabetic educators were invaluable to me. Thank you."

"I had a Stereotactic Needle Biopsy at Pesetas Lane Radiology. I particularly want to praise and thank the radiology technicians for the care and compassion they gave during what is an awkward and uncomfortable procedure. I don’t think I could have had a better team."

"My wife and I had appointments with Dr. Mary-Lousie Scully today. In our opinion, her knowledge of travel issues and potential health problems was complete. Her presentation was both detailed and concise and she was a lovely person to talk with. Our combined thanks. Dr. Scully is a great representative for Sansum Clinic."

"I had Gastric Bypass Surgery by Dr. Zerey and a hysterectomy by Dr. Raphael. Both procedures went very well. I received excellent care by both doctors and their staff. Your clinic is very caring in making sure I was taken care of. I am very blessed to have Sansum in my life."
