Photo by Nelson

The Style Crone is impressed.  In less than one hour Nelson’s pain was under control and a new medication regimen has improved his disrupted sleep pattern, his symptoms have been addressed, and his energy level is at a place where he is back behind the camera with a few playful comments as an added bonus.  Now we’re talking!  This is a model for healthcare that I can believe in.  We have been treated with respect, we have expressed our opinions without retaliation, and empathy is flowing like a river through our sanctuary.  We are experienced healthcare secret shoppers with over six years of intense and intimate observations that would shock even the most seasoned observer.  So burgundy on gray is The SC’s theme for the day in celebration of a system that fits like a fine vintage leather glove during a time when a crisis can be a moment away.
