Patient Stories

There is a culture at DHMC that is outstanding. Cooperation and respect between staff at all levels is a joy to behold. None of this comes as a surprise. I have observed it on previous visits.

I’m pleased with how promptly I was seen and every health care provider was very pleasant and caring about my needs. My appointments were never rushed and when I needed an appointment the staff worked hard to accommodate my needs.
