WHAT OUR PATIENTS ARE SAYING

A testimonial from Zach Clark reads: I have been in more than once because of kidney stones, and the staff is just incredible. Words that come to mind to describe the characteristics that I witnessed in the DCH staff: professional, kind, caring, outstanding communication, patience, knowledgeable. I'm not exactly excited that these returned to me, but I'm just glad they did when I was able to come to Decatur County Hospital.
A testimonial from Kris Williams reads: "Libby has helped me so much. I have been to so many Doctors and she finally figured out what was wrong with me and has found the right treatment."
A testimonial from Diana Jones reads: "Dr. Jawa has been my doctor throughout my colon cancer and with my continued 5 year follow up appointments. So grateful to have such a great doctor nearby!"
