Wonderful Doctors At PHC

Dear Editor,

On August 8, 2008, I broke my leg through carelessness on my part, we call it an accident. Making the decision that I would rather go to Peninsula Hospital Center rather than one which, if an ambulance was called, would be somewhere in Brooklyn.

Arriving at the emergency entrance at Peninsula Hospital, a wheelchair was dispatched and in no time I went through the admittance process. I can't recall any names, but starting with the attending physician, the pleasant supportive X-ray technician and then, if you ever watched the show "House," a team of interns under the direction of an orthopedist's care. While waiting for the cast to set and a second set of X-rays, I was offered drinks and food if hungry, by an aide.

While leaving the emergency room after being discharged, the guard on duty made pleasant small talk and stood lookout for my ride, so I wouldn't have to stand on my new crutches outside in the heat. I was directed to a follow-up appointment with a Dr. Anthony Horvath whose practice is in Inwood and I was not disappointed as he is another fine orthopedic specialist with an excellent office facility, (you know how friends say, "Oh I go to him, he's the best, he's in Manhattan"). Every organization is only as good as its employees and that morning the staff that I encountered should be given gold medals.
