Reviews for Patient AirLift Services

Rating: 5 stars  

Our 10 year old daughter has a Chiari Malformation and several co-conditions of Chiari. We struggled through diagnosis and surgery in Texas for 2 years before finally conceding that traveling to New York to see a top surgeon was our only answer to helping her. She is the youngest of four children, and in addition to her medical expenses, we have been hit by a flooded home, college tuition, and needed car repairs. PALS was a huge help to us in paying for the flight for our daughter and myself. They were efficient, compassionate, and flexible with our return flight because it was dependent on the outcome of medical care. We are so appreciative of their organization.

Our son is needing multiple surgeries at major children's hospitals around the nation. PALS has helped alleviate the stress of paying for multiple flights a year for his care away from home. The individuals who helped us set up our flight were very efficient and so friendly! Thank you PALS for helping make a stressful season of our life just a little easier!

Patient Airlift Services makes it possible to endure the frequent visits to Cincinnati's Specialty Clinic for Epidermolysis Bullosa from Scranton, PA. It takes 10 hours or more by car, and we make the trip every 3 months. We are so grateful to all of the fabulous volunteers and staff. They go out of their way to make everything as smooth as possible!

They were able to fly my father and daughter to North Carolina to be with my daughter in the hospital after her lung transplant and stroke. What they were able to do for us is priceless. As a nurse I see how they serve the community. They are doing God's work

My child was in North Carolina when she suffered a set back after having a lung transplant and stroke. PALS arranged to have her grandfather flown from NY and the pilot was generous and kind enough to pick up her sister in Baltimore . Without their help they would never have been able to be with Her at such a critical time. We will never be able to repay Eileen Minogue, PALS or our kind pilot. The staff also was there to see my father off, helping him so much during a frightening and stressful time.

In August 2012, my daughter was hospitalized in North Carolina. Her health took a dramatic down turn. If it was not for PALS she would never have been able to see her sister or grandfather before she passed away. We reached out to them from the hospital in desperation- without the time, energy or resources to be able to bring them to North Carolina. They found them a selfless volunteer to not only fly my elderly father from Long Island, but to also stop in Baltimore to retrieve my daughter. A compassionate pilot became an angel to us. . When you are living a nightmare to have such kind people reach out and throw you a lifeline like that gives you strength. We have never felt so grateful or cared for. These people all do Gods work. We will never forget the irreplaceable gift they gave to us.

The leadership of this organization is flexible, smart and willing to partner and work with other agencies. I've always had a good experience. When I heard that they were willing to fly in nearly a dozen of my kids coping with cancer for our camping program, I was excited but also nervous. PALS eased my fears and created phenomenal memories for our campers. I'm proud to be able to work with such a terrific and needed organization. 5 stars indeed!

Trusting a complete stranger to take your precious child on a flight in a small airplane can be a little bit frightening. PALS walked us through the process allaying any fears that we had. They answered all of our questions and confirmed flight information multiple times. The pilot and co-pilot were wonderful who eased our fears as parents when we turned over our son to them for the flight. Our son told us afterwards that they were very friendly and explained the airplane to him and answered any questions they had. They made the flight enjoyable for him. Yes, he flew alone.
I definitely recommend this organization and their volunteers to anyone who can benefit from their services.

I have been going to the Clevland Clinic in Ohio for 2 years now, this past year, have been there three times in 2 months. It was getting very costly for us, PALS came to my rescue and flew myself and my husband from Greenville Maine to Clevland Ohio and back!! Jim, the Pilot going too, and Arron and Mike the pilots coming home were all my angels this week! Thank you so very much! Many Blessing to everyone at PALS !! Without you, so many wouldn't make it to where they need to be..

I can't sat enough about pals & how they've helped my son. We need to fly from new york to Boston for his medical treatment & pals has been instrumental in that! The pilots along with all the staff are caring & compassionate, they make a very stressful time a little less trying.

Thank you will never do it justice... from the bottom of our hearts thank you & G-d bless

sincerely
Honey Gross
A forever greatful mom!
