“George and I were on a Zoom phone call with our children and grandchildren on the Saturday before Mother’s day. He got up to get a glass of water and fell on the floor. I got off the call immediately and could tell that George’s wrist was broken and he was in a lot of pain, so I called 911. He was taken to St. Charles in Prineville where we live and admitted to the ER. Because of the COVID protocols in place, I had to wait in the car and it was very difficult to get information. After six hours, he was discharged and brought to my car. George had hip problems even before the fall, and he could barely walk when he was brought out. Dr. Healy called me the next morning to let me know that he had seen George’s x-rays and he needed immediate surgery. He went above and beyond speaking to me throughout the day as I tried to arrange transportation to St. Charles in Bend for the operation. It was a very frustrating experience and Dr. Healy gave me a great deal of comfort and support. After the surgery, Dr. Healy continued to keep me updated on George’s progress. When George returned to Prineville, we had him in a swing bed at St. Charles for rehabilitation. Then Dr. Healy and St. Charles helped me arrange home health to come to our home to help us until I was comfortable caring for him on my own. We can’t thank Dr. Healy enough for his help throughout this experience.” – Carole and George Wood
“Dr. Healy has a great demeanor and made me feel comfortable about both of my carpal tunnel surgeries. I was blown away by the fact that he called me after both surgeries to see how I was doing. I have had other surgeries and I don’t recall that ever happening before. Five stars!”
“Dr. Healy is very understanding and eager to help his patients. I would recommend him to any of my friends.”
