Sara Perricone's Cardiopulmonary Rehab Story

Sara Perricon at the gym

“Aortic valve replacement surgery and the recovery process are very intimidating. But the wonderful team at Johnston Health Cardiopulmonary Rehab quickly put me at ease.

They are consummate professionals- supportive, considerate, understanding, efficient and effective. It was an educational program as well as physical- informative and well rounded.

We looked at all parts of lifestyle- better diet, better shopping. The staff watched over us very carefully and personally, but never made us feel stress or concern.

The unexpected advantage that I discovered here was the overall attitude- the moral support and encouragement that I found, not only with the staff, but also my fellow patients. We bonded, encouraged each other and gained confidence from each other’s accomplishments and successes. All of us, patients and our rehab team, were like a big family support group.

Cardioh Rehab TeamBest of all- it worked! I now have more energy than I’ve had in years. I am so grateful to find such a level of expert care so close to home.”
