Patient Stories: Molly H. Shares Her Story

I was diagnosed with cancer a while back and having issues with my kidneys and horribly swollen legs. I was admitted to the hospital with these ongoing issues.

While I was in the hospital the RIA Interventional team was consulted to see if they could help with my swelling.

Dr. Peter Stratil performed my chronic venous reconstruction procedure. He was able to place stents in my veins that help dramatically decrease the swelling in my legs. I was THRILLED!

While I was in the hospital Heather, one of the RIA nurse practitioners, would often check on me. She was so personable and kind. Most importantly she totally got my sense of humor, which is what I really needed. I felt like she was more of a friend than a caregiver. Dr. Stratil’s bedside manner was very sweet, knowledgeable and not intimidating.

I knew I was in good hands.

The clinic staff is so nice and welcoming.

It is weird to say, but I even have fun when I am at the RIA Clinic.

I enjoy visiting with everyone.

I never thought I would actually look forward to seeing a doctor’s office!
