Meet Jean Boyle

By the time Jean Boyle met Dr. Gopalakrishnan in May 2018 he already had a treatment plan in place. 

 

“He told me that we did not have any days to spare, that every day was critical to my treatment plan,” says Jean. “I instantly knew that having him as my Doctor was a very rare and special gift.”

Even when he was not at the clinic, Dr. Gopalakrishnan kept himself fully informed on Jean’s treatment. “I could always count on him to keep me up to date on my progress, what the next steps would be and what to expect,” says Jean.  “His expertise, passion and dedication to his patients, his caregivers, his co-workers and the medical profession are what makes him an exceptional doctor.”

 “Thank you, Dr. Gopalakrishnan for being my STAR!”  says Jean. “You are one in a million.”

Meet Bruce Kutchaw

Bruce Kutchaw was admitted to
Health Sciences North’s 6th Floor, South.


“You never know when you will meet that special person who makes a difference in your life,” says Bruce.  “The friendly smile that greeted me on my first morning there belonged to my nurse, Chris.  Her upbeat personality, compassion, attentiveness and clear and concise instructions helped me to take charge of my health and learn to self-administer insulin.”

Chris seemed to be there whenever Bruce needed her and helped to transform a stressful and uncomfortable situation into one that was warm and enjoyable.

“Thank you, Chris, for your exceptional patient care,” says Bruce.  “You are my STAR!”
