Dear Mr. Gear,
I must admit I am a little saddened that I recently received a State of Kansas medical card. Although this should be a good thing, it means I will be unable to use the wonderful services of Guadalupe Clinic.
Over a year ago I fell upon hard times. I visited a church for some much needed food. While there, two lovely ladies were giving free blood glucose and blood pressure tests. This started a chain of events that I believe literally saved my live.
My blood pressure was 143/85. I was a walking stroke victim waiting to happen. I was advised to go to an emergency room immediately. Instead these nurses made a few phone calls and got me in to see Kathryn at the Hillside clinic that same day.
Thanks to Kathryn’s expertise and intuition, after blood tests it was ultimately discovered I had Hepatitis ‘C’, with a viral load over a hundred million. I had no idea I had this virus, and probably would not have found out until it was too late. Because of her and Dr. Hagan, I am now taking the wonder drug, Harvoni.
Kathryn has addressed and resolved my blood pressure issue, Hep C, low functioning kidneys, heart murmur, anxiety/depression/popped my shoulder back into place, and made me aware of other services available to me.
Everyone I have come into contact with at both clinics have put me at ease and made me feel welcome.
I wanted to take this opportunity to express my appreciation and gratitude for everything. I’m a firm believer that God works in mysterious ways, and things happen for a reason.
I have received better care from Guadalupe Clinic than I have anywhere...ever.
