Roy Turner's Story

Roy TurnerWhen my wife, Sandra, and I were considering retiring from Greensboro to the family farm near Smithfield our major concern was having the health care we needed nearby. Seeing the new services and facilities at Johnston Health helped us to make our decision.

Three years later some chest discomfort made me hesitant to get out and do things I normally enjoy, especially getting away from home to fish on my boat at the coast. I had a diagnostic cath, followed by two cardiac stent procedures, all done in Johnston Health's new interventional cath lab. I could not have asked for better care from the staff and physicians. From diagnostic process through pre-op, stent procedures and recovery, everyone I came in contact with was kinda, friendly, attentive and very professional.

I followed that with cardiac rehab at Johnston Health's Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation center. They were very helpful, not just physically, but also with encouragement and helping to get the mindset I needed to make some lifestyle changes.

It's wonderful to have this level of care right here in our neighborhood, and I am thankful to feel like doing the things I enjoy again!
