I went to the clinic in Feb. of 2013 with what I thought was a deep chest cold. I felt fine except when I walked, I would get winded easily. I always also feeling fatigued. Since it was the winter time, I just chalked it up to a cold, making walking pneumonia. I was recently unemployed and was waiting for my new insurance to start. As I had no insurance, I decided to go to the clinic to get a prescription. Linda Mumblo took my pulse and told me it was 39. She sent me right in to see Dr Schoonover. The Dr told me to get right to the hospital and to bring a toothbrush. To make a long story short, the next day I received a pacemaker. Unbeknownst to me, the bottom half of my heart was not beating. I had Bradycardia. If it had not been for the fact that this clinic was available to me, I would have just tried to deal with the shortness of breath. In all likelihood, had I not gone to the clinic, I could have easily had a heart attack at any moment. I thank God and his servants at The New Hope Health Clinic. I can truly say that they literally saved my life.
