In Alpena from late May through mid-October, I have received excellent medical care for which I am very grateful. Beginning with mammography and continuing through the needed diagnostic procedures, surgery and radiation, every person with whom I interacted in any way was pleasant and helpful. Were I to include hospital volunteers, clerical staff, nurses, techs, anaesthesiologists, surgeons and radiologists, the list might include 50 people. Without exception they were all respectful and caring. Especially helpful with my recovery were Surgeon Dr. Mark Puls and Oncology Radiologist Dr. Andrew Young and oncology staff persons, Judy, Curt and Holly. Northeast Michigan is blessed to have the U of M/ARMC cancer center on Chisholm Street in Alpena.
