Excellent Surgeon by Phyllis Joyner*

Dr. Connally did my thyroid surgery. Excellent surgeon. He and his office staff make you feel right at home. I had no pain from the procedure. I also have no scar! (He used a wrinkle for the incision placement) I highly recommend him - in case you couldn’t tell.

Level of care by Bryan Tracy*

Monday, January 7, 2019

To whom it may concern: My name is Bryan Tracy and I was treated in your facility on 1/04/2019. I came into your facility around 11:00 pm with a head injury. Dr. Juliana Bizzell was the attending physician that night. I was very confused when I was brought in but this I know, I was treated with the utmost professionalism that I have never experienced. I guess when I was first brought in, the girls at the front desk saw us coming and immediately brought a wheel chair for me. After my friend filled out a little paper work, I was immediately wheeled to the back where Dr. Bizzell and her staff were waiting to treat me. They did from what I hear and what I can remember, an outstanding job of taking care of me. I have been to the ER or Hospital a dozen or so times in my 47 years and have not ever been treated this well. What stuck out to me the most is that I had been at home drinking when my accident occurred. I was not being irresponsible, it just happened. The point is that it's no secret that often times if Doctors, Nurses, ER's know that you have been drinking when you were injured, they loose all compassion. It's almost like they get the mentality like, "well you did this to yourself" and their level of compassion and care goes down like they are judge and jury. It's sad, but that was not the case for me. I am grateful that I came to your facility that night and that Dr. Bizzell and her staff were on hand. There were maybe 3 or 4 other nurses/assistants helping that night, I just don't know their names and it's not on my paperwork but not one of them should go unrecognized. It was a team effort that got me back on my feet. I would ask that you not only research and find out who all was on staff that night that treated me from the front desk help, to the one that did my cat-scan, to the ones treating me and tell their supervisors what they did for me. Tell the ones that they answer to what a tremendous job they did in caring for me. They all deserve to be recognized. At the very least, tell Dr. Bizzell and her staff that I am grateful they were there when I came in. I hope I should never have to see them again, but such is life and if I do, I hope they are there. Sincerely, Bryan

A Special Thank You! by Patient*

Thursday, December 27, 2018

I was admitted last week at the HealthPlex for surgery for an ectopic pregnancy. I'm not sure if I sent this to the correct person, but I wanted to write a thank you note to the nurses and staff that took care of me last week on the first floor in Women and Children's.

I'm trying to find the right words for the gratitude I feel and I cannot speak highly enough about the nurses and staff that took care of me. They were some of the kindest human beings I've ever met. If I remember correctly, and excuse me if I left anyone out or didn't remember a name right, all of my nurses were: Ashley, Jenny, Tiffany, Alisha, Sandra, Sandy, and Kenny (in post-op recovery).

From the moment I walked in, I felt like I was getting the highest level of care and compassion. At a time when I was feeling vulnerable, scared, sad, and hurt, they were there to help me every step of the way. They were incredibly kind, attentive, and always treated me with respect. They are truly experts in their field.

A special thank you to Kenny in post-op for holding my hand after surgery when I was disoriented, nauseous, hurting, and just needed a human to hold on to. I am truly thankful that I was blessed with an incredible care team. Thank you all again for your care and kindness.

My Mom’s Stay by Hillari Pool*

I just wanted to say how grateful I am for the care my mom received from Dr. Isbell and the nurses at Norman Regional Hospital during her stay. She and I couldn’t have asked for better service. The nurses were very kind and caring. Dr. Isbell is amazing! He checked on my mom frequently, listened to all of our questions and made sure she was truly healed before releasing her. I thank everyone at Norman Regional Hosptial for going above and beyond for my Mom.

I came in to the emergency room last night in terrible shape. Your nurses, doctors, and PA's were so kind and caring. I really felt like they cared and wanted to see me better. Dr. Mantooth was amazing. The nurses were all amazing. And they took care of my issue and set me up with information to help me even after I was gone. Thank you so much

Great Job! by Bessie Jane Allen *

The lab at Doctor's Park did a TERRIFIC job today getting me in to have my blood drawn. Just to make sure they had the orders from my doctor, I called before I went. By the time I got there, I was already checked in! The staff were extraordinarily efficient, getting me in and out in less than 10 minutes! THANK YOU very much! They deserve positive recognition for their outstanding service.

I work in the medical record dept of Norman Regional Hospital while searching for records on a microfilm machine I suffered a migraine that mimiced stroke symptoms. Whinin minutes the Intervenional Team was in my department and wisked me to the ER. The doctors and nurses there were amazing, I was scared and overwhelmed with everything that was going on but I was soothed by the compassionate staff that patiently explained every detail they were doing. I was admitted for observation under the care of Dr. Yerra, an amazing compassonate doctor, on the 5th floor. I wish I could remember all the nurses names because each and everyone was an angel who took the time to visit with me, answer all my questions and took excellent care of me. Working in medical records I hear a variety of patient's hospital experiences, most of them are positive and now I have my own story which I will be proud to say Norman Regional is the best! We do it the Norman Way!

Fantastic Job! by Jaime *

Debbie did a fantastic job during my visit. She spent extra time during the appointment making sure my position was just right before each image and asked me multiple times if I was okay and sorry if I was uncomfortable. It's not the most pleasant visit for patients in general, but Debbie made it feel like we were done in no time and I was on my way. Thanks!!!
