  • "The rehab staff assisting patients with physical and occupational therapy were so kind to the patients"

    I wanted to take a moment and congratulate you and the RIKC staff for the wonderful work you do.  I recently had the opportunity to visit RIKC and see the work you do from a patient's perspective.  My mom's neurologist referred her for an evaluation with Dr. Terrie Price.  From the gentleman at the front desk to the intake and copay, and especially the work of Dr. Price, your staff was friendly, and treated us as if we were the most important person they would see that day.  Dr. Price was the ultimate professional, and was able to give mom both the good and bad information in a respectful manner.

    While waiting for mom to complete testing I got to do some great "people watching."  The rehab staff assisting patients with physical and occupational therapy were so kind to the patients, and obviously knew their patients well.  One patient sat with me for a while in the waiting area, and said that RIKC had given her back her life after a serious fall. She was so pleased with the treatment and services that she had received, and told me that my mom was in great hands at RIKC.

    I, of course, knew the work you do with the workshop employees and job placement, but had never before had the opportunity to see the other side of the work you do.  It was wonderful to be treated so well in a situation where mom and I were somewhat nervous and unsure of what to expect.

    If people are dissatisfied with the services they receive they do not hesitate to file a complaint.  Unfortunately, most don't take the time to write a note of thanks if they have received excellent service.  I didn't want to be one who neglected to voice the good things going on at your organization.

    Thanks again for the wonderful services you provide to the KC community, and please thank your staff for treating my mom with such respect and dignity.
