A satisfied patient

Dear Editor:

After 65 years skiing (45 in Aspen) my luck ran out and I became a patient in your emergency room and later was admitted for a couple of days.

From our arrival at the emergency room door to my release from the hospital, without exception, I was treated in a courteous, pleasant, professional manner by everyone with whom I had contact.

Doctors Bernard and Rodman were pleasant, thorough and informative as they set about my treatment. Their observation, that leaving my helmet at home was not very smart, was well-deserved criticism.

Your caring nurses (Jeff, Lauri, Meghan and others) answered every question and call promptly with a smile.

In our impersonal world, Aspen Valley Hospital stands out as absolutely the best.

Thank you and your entire team.

George S. Weaver Jr.
