The following quotes are based on patient comments to staff members of Good Shepherd Clinic:
“Good Shepherd Clinic has changed my life. If it had not been for Good Shepherd Clinic I would not have known that I had high blood pressure or cholesterol problems. I could have died. Also, Dr. Anderson gave me stomach medication that changed my life. Before, I was not able to eat because of terrible stomach problems…I even had to be excused from jury duty because of this problem. Now, with this medication, I have my life back.”
“GSCODC saved my life and my family. I was on lots of medication and could never get help for myself. I felt so bad that I suffered severe depression. The people of GSCODC got me out of it! The volunteers are always there for me and they show they care!”
“I went through many years looking for help with leg pain. Went to the Health Department and no one could help. The Health Department suggested GSCODC. The doctors and nurses there are all so nice and started me on a program to relieve the pain. I am finally pain FREE! Good Shepherd has helped me more than anywhere. I have been treated so well and it is nice to have someone who cares about me that much.”
