In 2010, I had no insurance, was unemployed after two back surgeries, was living in a homeless shelter and was diagnosed with pulmonary embolism (PE) after an ER trip/IP admit at Chester County Hospital. Dr. Mary provided me outstanding follow-up care, made sure I had the correct medications and dosages and provided a level of care that can only truly be defined as caring and compassionate. She is the doctor of the old days; the person who studied medicine to help people.
I live in FL and am now 5-years out from my first PE, and have recently had another PE. I am working; I have a home; I have insurance. The level of care I have now is substandard, at best, and I've had issues with my insurance company and healthcare providers who seem to be more attentive to profit than patient outcomes. If I still lived in the West Chester, PA, area I would pay CVIM out-of-pocket cash because I'd know that my recovery and healthy future were a priority.
