"I feel improvement and happy I came to this excellent place. I am happy I found all the people here helpful and I thank those people who stood by me, especially Madam Chaibia and Madam Milly and Dr. Prevedello, an excellent doctor."
"One of the best things about the team that was with me at Wexner is that they kept me in the loop. They communicated 100 percent, they explained every procedure, everything that we were doing. I cannot be more satisfied with the hands that treated me."
Nicole Fuchs and Family
"Without my team at Ohio State, I wouldn't be here to paddle around with my family, manatees and alligators! The doctors and the Destination Medicine team went above and beyond in every way to make sure I was comfortable and cared for. I will forever be grateful and will always look to them for my continuing care. Thank you team!"
"Mi permanencia en el hospital fue algo así como un descanso turístico. Ni siquiera me di cuenta que me habían operado. Por otra parte, la atención de todo el personal técnico fue no solo amena, cordial y eficiente, sino también una demostración de profesionalidad que me hicieron sentir muy confortable durante mi estadía. Los mismos conceptos son extensivos para los funcionarios administrativos y de coordinación de Destination Medicine y los interpretes que cumplieron una labor eficiente."
"My stay at the hospital was something of a tourist break. I did not even realize that I had surgery. On the other hand, the attention of all the technical staff was not only friendly, cordial and efficient, but also a demonstration of professionalism that made me feel very comfortable during my stay. The same goes for the administration and coordination of Destination Medicine and the interpreters, who did an efficient job.”
Consul General of Guatemala
"I want to thank all the valuable support provided at The Wexner Medical Center to the citizens of Guatemala. I am very grateful for the excellent service."
"I traveled from Chile in search of experts. My diagnosis had been complex, so I needed a team that had performed this procedure many times, and I found it."
“The medical team led by Dr. Carrau took charge of my case with an impeccable procedure, delivering clear information in a timely manner, which allowed me to have the certainty that I was in the place where everything could turn out well."
“For me and my family, it was a moment of great anguish. We were foreigners with an uncertain diagnosis, but at The James and with the help of Destination Medicine, they gave us the confidence we needed, with an impressive professionalism and in an atmosphere of great respect, dedication and kindness. I feel immensely grateful."
Mary and Jack Lambert
New York, U.S.A.
"Our experience with The James/Destination Medicine was truly extraordinary. Upon Jack (my husband) being diagnosed and our choice of going to Ohio to get another opinion, it was quite overwhelming when the appointment was made and we had just a few days to make all the arrangements. We were scared, apprehensive and didn't know what to expect. But once we were directed to Destination Medicine, they were the angels that guided us through things (making the living arrangements, getting all the required medical records from the N.Y. locations and sent to the Ohio hospital/doctors, scheduling necessary tests and doctors appointments, arranging transportation to the tests and to the hospital appointments, getting all of the hospital/doctors/test records for us to take home, and even arranging for a chair recliner to be sent to our hotel room after Jack's surgery)."
"We decided to proceed with Jack's surgery in Ohio. After his surgery, it was necessary for him to continue treatment and undergo radiation. Destination Medicine arranged for us to see a radiologist at The James to go over procedures so we would know what to expect. We were then advised to obtain this further care in Houston, Texas. Upon trying to make arrangements in Houston and finding difficulty, I contacted "our" Ellie from Destination Medicine in Ohio to see if she could perhaps direct us to someone in Houston who would help us. Ellie tried, but unfortunately, Houston was not equipped with any program/patient care assistance like Destination Medicine, so basically, we were on our own. We came to realize and truly appreciate all of the work Destination Medicine does and did for us! (While in Houston, I spoke with many people working in the hospital, as well as other patients, about our experience with Destination Medicine in Ohio and how the hospital there needed this assistance for all patients.)"
“Words can't express how grateful and appreciative we are for all of the work and care that Destination Medicine did for us. "Our" angel at Destination Medicine is Ellie, we were blessed to have her on our side!”
Beverly and Richard Carter
"Words cannot adequately express our sincere gratitude for the kindness, patience and helpfulness you have shown us. And Dr. Carrau has simply been a God send to us as he helped to guide us in this most difficult test in our lives. Specifically, his advice and second opinion meant so much — it truly gave us hope."
"I arrived from France via Texas two years ago and the professionals that I have meet at James put me at ease and helped me all the way at every visit. The hotel and transportation were perfectly organized and I felt a human side that was a plus on the people that took care of me. I intend to keep up the relationship and benefit of the kindness and expertise of the team of Dr. Shabsigh and the great efficacy of Meryem from Destination Medicine. Thank you all."
