"Late November 2010, I decided to pursue the TIF surgery for acid reflux with Dr. Peter Janu. It was best for me to get the procedure done yet that year, but I knew there were several steps involved in the process so I wasn’t sure it was possible.. I know these are very busy months for our providers as well, with the holidays and other patients with requests similar to mine. Not only did Dr. Janu and his nurse Joan get everything scheduled for me right away, but they did it with a smile. I never felt as if I were a burden, when I would call and need to adjust an appointment or procedure, or if I had additional questions on the surgery and needed more answers. The day of the surgery went smoothly, I checked in and was prepared for surgery and went in on time. My Nurse – Anesthetist Steve Hooyman was wonderful. He kept me feeling calm the entire time, explaining everything that was happening. The staff, including Steve, kept my family updated throughout the surgery. My time spent recovering in STE and following up with Dr. Janu and his nurse was just as wonderful as my experience pre-surgery. I had a couple minor complications, so it was difficult at times but they were there to help me whenever I needed it. Dr. Janu continues to make follow up calls to check-in. A little over a year later, I’m happy to report the surgery was very successful and I now realize more than ever how proud I am to be a part of Affinity Health System not only as a patient, but as an employee. The team of professionals that I worked with truly showed me Personalized Care and should be proud of the work that they do." ~ Samantha Kinsey
