“She has endured a lot of pain over the past five months, part of it from the debridement (removal of damaged tissue) of her wound. She is doing great now but will always have a large scar. Some will look at it and feel sorry for her. We look at it and are grateful for what it is: a scar on a fully functioning leg,” Samantha shared.

Also thank you to the Waverly Health Center for allowing such a great program to exist,” mom stated.

“We chose Waverly Health Center because it was close and we are familiar with it. It was easy for Jon to come and go and we both were well cared for. It was very enlightening to learn more about the hospital and to gain a better concept of what it’s like to be a patient,” Gloria ended.

“I was able to take some of the scary, unknown parts out of delivery for my children. I was right by their side telling them what they were feeling was normal and to answer any questions they had. Each birth was so special and were incredible experiences to be a part of – I got to witness my children become parents.”
“I started using Waverly Health Center’s supervised exercise program through pulmonary rehab. I go two times a week and spend an hour and a half each time. Going to WHC to exercise helps keep me going. If I tried to do it at home, I don’t think I would stick with it.”
“Therapies have given us so much hope for Brielle. There is so much unknown with her diagnosis, so to have that glimmer of hope is the light for our family. When Brielle started therapy, she could barely hold her head up. Now, two years later she is WALKING!"
“It worked so well for my shoulders that I wanted to try it for my lower back. I always had a lot of stiffness in my back when I first got up in the morning. I would try to stretch, but it wouldn’t loosen up. After Ron used dry needling to treat my lower back, the stiffness was gone.”
“One of my nurses, Jess, sensed my uneasiness. She gave me a little pep talk and told me how we were going to do this together.

"During my last appointment with Dr. Bansal, I had five questions – they were all unrelated, but she didn’t rush me. She didn’t tell me to make a different appointment for each issue and gave each question thorough answers. She impresses me, and that says a lot since I’ve seen my fair share of doctors.”

“Having Waverly Health Center in town means a lot to us. It's close and we’re able to get in and out quickly. But we don’t go there just because it’s close. We go there because of the quality of care, because of how great our doctors are, and because we just love the facility.”
“Whether it’s the ER or one of the clinics, I’ve always had exceptional service. The doctors are beyond fabulous. Topnotch. They truly care about your needs. They’re humble and knowledgeable. They talk at your level and make time for you. I know we will receive great care, and we’ll be a part of the decision-making.”
Overall, the experience was very comforting. They were great at taking my mind off of the scary situation I’d just experienced. The little things they did may seem small, but they all meant a lot when I was the one in the bed.

“I was impressed with WHC from the start – I loved the staff, services and facilities. We moved to Fredericksburg in 2012, but wanted to keep getting our health care from WHC. Even though we’re now 35 miles away, WHC still gives us that home-like feel. We have always felt really confident in the staff and we’re treated like family.”

“I knew I wanted to go to a smaller hospital where I wasn’t just a number. I started looking for a podiatrist with a good reputation and found it in Dr. Greg Lantz. When I learned he did surgery in Waverly, it fit my needs perfectly.”
