Kudos to WMC staff, facility 

On Sunday, July 28, I suffered extensive chest trauma from an equine riding accident. Being a health-care professional myself, I knew I needed prompt attention. I chose  to go to Watauga  Medical Center to evaluate the injury. What a wonderful and caring staff and facility I encountered.

From the ER receptionist, nurses, radiology staff, respiratory specialists, housekeeping and ER doctor, to my ultimate general surgeon (Dr. Harold Frazier Jr. and his partner, Dr. Tim Edmisten), I had the best.  

My comfort level and needs were addressed at every turn. The folks at this facility could not have been nicer. I was at Watauga Medical Center from July 28-July 31 including the ER, ICU, and step-down unit.

Kudos to all from a fellow who was in a lot of pain from six rib fractures and pulmonary contusions. I thank our God above for the medical support and kindness I received from all of you, and due to the excellent care, I am well on the mend.  

Watauga residents can be very proud of the local hospital and the folks that comprise the health-care team here locally.
