Patient Stories: Patty




I've had lots of pulmonary problems; I recently was in the hospital four times in five weeks for fluid in my lungs. My doctors at Park Nicollet decided to put me on prednisone, and it has made all the difference in the world. I'm doing much better now.  

I'd definitely recommend Park Nicollet to other people encountering pulmonary issues. They are fast, efficient and probably saved my life. I went in for a blood test, and within two hours, they already had my counts and got me in for immediate care.  

The fluid in my lungs was even affecting my heart. The cardiologists at Park Nicollet Heart and Vascular Center did a great job helping me monitor my condition. I go in for regular checkups and also watch my weight to make sure that fluid isn't building up again.  

The integration at Park Nicollet makes it easy to be a patient. Everyone on my care team is able to look at my online medical record and instantly be familiar with my situation. I don't have to keep bringing everyone up to speed and retelling my story. It's marvelous how they just look at the screen and know where I'm at in my treatment. I have nothing but good things to say about Park Nicollet.
