Ali Akbar and Bryce Basinger transported a pt who became combative and agitated. They stayed and offered man power. They became part of the team and really helped us out in a tough situation. Much respect and gratitude to these two gentlemen. – Oncology Unit

Parnell G. and Frank S. transported me and my 7 year old son, Joseph Allen from Chesapeake General to CHKD (Friday, Sept. 17, 2010) and they were just wonderful. Please know that I was very pleased with them for being so patient and kind to me and especially to my sick son. They were exceptional! Again, thanks! M. Allen – Melanie Allen

On 9/17 at 1:30 A.M. Shawn and Jimmy transported my mother from Maryview Hospital after an long wait in the emergency room. After tests, poking, prodding, etc. no room available to be transferred to in the hospital; she was released to their care. Couldn’t have wished or prayed for better, more caring and pleasant people. My father and I (as well as the rest of my family) are grateful and so happy that there are angels like you out there. THANK YOU SHAWN & JIMMY!! – Debbie Bass Blessing

On Monday 9/13/10 A. Ellison and P Beaman transported my son from one hospital to another. Their fun but polite manner put my son at ease and that was terrific.

I can not thank them enough for their services. – Radewicz

On 8/27/10 my father was transported from Maryview Hospital back to his home/Mayfair House. Heather Weaver and JJ were absolutely AWESOME! They took such care with my dad. They talked to him and helped him into bed. Heather even tied the hospital gown and was telling my dad she was holding it in the back so when he lay down it wouldn’t choke him. Just the way they treated my dad almost brought tears to my eyes. Thinking about it now does. What wonderful people! – Mary Morgan

On 08/18/10 my husband was transported from Kinston Rehab to his doctor’s appt. in Kinston by two of your staff, Sylvia & Alexander Way. We couldn’t have asked for two better people to assist us. They were professional, courteous and friendly. They again transported us on 8/24/10 to Duke Clinic in Durham. We again found them to be the same as before. I feel you are very fortunate to have these two employees in your company. – Marilyn Faulkner

On behalf of the staff and residents here we would like to say that your employees are professional and caring to our residents and staff. They treat all of our residents with respect. They are friendly to each and every one, residents and staff. For example: 6/16/2010 a crew, (Jimmy, Crystal, Sylvia and Jamie) came in to transport a resident, other residents were calling out to them by name and Jimmy took the time to speak to each and every one calling the residents by name. It may not seem like alot to some, but it means alot to our residents to have someone take the time to speak and remember who they are. So once again thank you for all you do. You have a great staff! Keep up the good work. – KRHC

Wanda Marks, and Kristina Farlow wonderful team – James Abbott

On May 5th 2010 my grandmother was transported to her nursing home from the hospital and all she could talk about when she called me later that evening was how nice and caring the employees from your company were, she said it was just like being transported by family and she felt that she was in good hands, and the one person she has known for a while. The employees were Benny West and Christine Hughes, and I’m so glad that they were able to make her feel comfortable, it means a lot to me that you have people like this working for you, that put the patient first. Continue the good work – Janice

Paul and Anna have been a godsend They are so responsive and professional that we would not know what to do without them now. Smooth management of all our transportation needs every time . – Beth Sanders RN

April 26, 2010, Arthur and Thom transported my husband from Chesapeake General Hospital to Oakwood Rehab Facility. They were very professional and provided great service, they made my husband transport stress free because he wasn’t feeling too good about the transfer from hospital to rehab. If we need transport service again we will use you service. – Shirley Dandridge

My aunt had a transport Tuesday morning from First Med, she said that the employees were on time and acted in professional manner that even the place she was residing in that morning did not, she said the employees helped feed her before leaving and making sure she had gotten her pain medication before transporting her, she cannot recall the name of the young lady that drove but she remembers the other lady, she remembered asking what her name was and looked at her ID tag most of the time, her name was Christine Hughes. My aunt said that this young lady had a warm smile and personality and did everything she could do and think of to make my aunts ride as comfortable as could be, due to a back surgery her rides are usually very painful but this young lady helped her and the driver did her best to avoid bumpy areas on the road, and I would just like to say Thank You So Much First Med, and a large THANK YOU to the young ladies that picked her up that morning! – Family Member of a Patient

On Monday, 07/27 my son’s girlfriend was in an auto accident and had to be rushed to the emergency room. The City paramedics had not arrived, but First Med EMT, Dermitrius Warner and Driver, Rudy Hux happened to see the accident from the other side of the highway and exited the highway to come to her aid. They were the first on the scene and were able to access her condition and transport her to the hospital. I just want to thank the First Med team for the expeditious and courteous service provided on that day because my son’s girlfriend was extremely upset. – Terri Nelson

I would like to take the opportunity to comment on the service that two of your employees, Travis Williams and Kenneth West, demonstrated while at our institution. They brought a patient to us for imaging on 11/3/09. Their care was exemplary. They were very kind, respectful and more than willing to go the extra mile to provide the best service. They smiled and spoke in a very intelligent manner. They appeared very professional. I hope you also take the chance to let these employees know what a great job they are doing. Thank you for your time. Respectfully, Tracie Lewis RT(R)(MR) Lead Technologist Coastal Carolina Healthcare-Imaging Center 1030 Medical Park Ave New Bern, NC 28562 – Tracie Lewis RT(R)(MR)
