Every time I visit the office or call on the phone, I'm very pleased with the assistance I receive from the entire staff from the Dorctor on down. Dr McCandless and Elaine Ressler have have been treating me for a total of at least 35 years!

Elaine was wonderful, she wanted me to have an ultrasound that day and I had an appointment in Wexford that I couldn't miss. She had the nurse call the hospital and I was able to leave the office and go to the hospital and have the ultrasound right away and I was able to leave for my next appointment.

When four doctor's said they didn't think surgery on the vertebrae on my neck would help to keep me from getting pneumonia, and I would be put on a feeding tube, Elaine searched this out and went over all my x-rays and tests. She said she thought they did surgery for that. Sure enough Dr; Okonkwo at Presby in Pitts. did the surgery. Thanks to God and Elaine, I am eating anything I want now with no pneumonia. She is a Gem
