Dr. Mohama was extremely excellent in explaining everything to me. He did it in terms that I could easily understand, and took a lot of time helping me with my medical issues and I truly appreciate everything that he has done for me.

I was very pleased with all the nurses the care that I got there and then 24 hours and Dr. Mohama did a wonderful job with the surgery for the pacemaker. I was very happy with it all. Thank you.

I think Dr. Mohama tried very hard to explain everything very thoroughly to me and I had opportunities to question him. I think it was just that much of the information is pretty complicated for me. Maybe not for other patients that he has so I'm not critical of him in anyway, but it is a difficult situation to be in when so much of the information is new to the patient. And I think he tried very hard to explain it carefully to me.

I really liked my experience. I especially liked the nurses. They were very nice, and the Dr was very informative to me. Now what do I do?

The Dr, all the staff, nursing, anesthesiologist, everybody. Triple A-plus. They explained everything super good. They were super nice. The sandwich was great afterwards. I have nothing negative to say. I would advise anybody to get a Watchman like I've got.

Meals had a lot to be desired! Saturated fat is no longer the enemy, SUGAR is! Salt is not the enemy, SUGAR Is! Sugar is the cause of inflammation and artery clogging! Sugar is the main cause of obesity and diabetes, both of which are precursors to heart disease! I did not have many meals there, but I did have a hard time getting what I wanted! The first night the main entree was BBQ beef made with SUGAR! I asked for a hamburger patty, no bun, I got something that had a lot of filler in it, probably soy that coverts to SUGAR! Also had green and yellow beans. The next day for breakfast I ordered 4 hard boiled eggs and I got biscuits and gravy, probably 150 grams of Sugar. I didn't even look at the rest as it was more SUGAR! Decided to fast! Lunch was a ham and cheese sandwich, soggy sweet potato fries, some vegetable, watermelon, and some juice drink! Way more SUGAR than anyone needs! I sent that back and was offered a salad. I took that, it had iceberg lettuce (no food value),processed turkey (more SUGAR), some shredded cheese and ranch dressing. I picked off the turkey and put a can of sardines (that I keep in my suitcase) on it for a half way decent meal. Thank goodness I was discharged that aft, cannot even imagine what awful stuff would have been offered! Oh and by the way I carry my own salt so I can get the daily requirement of two teaspoons! If I had eaten your "heart heathy" diet I would be even sicker than I am!!! Please do your research, the Internet is loaded with information about how bad SUGAR is for everyone!

I felt like the staff was very caring, and friendly, and helpful, and I really felt after I left that I had been ... I had received the best medical care possible, and Dr. Mohama told me about a ... a heart scan I could get through Avera, which I made an appointment for me, and my husband. So, we were very pleased with the care we received there.

Well, the doctor to staff was very nice and very very attending and they were really helpful with me down there for 234 hours. I was in there. I really appreciate what they did for me. I really appreciate them helping me get out of there before it got too dark arrived back home. I drove down there 220 miles and asked me to get me out there a little early and by golly they got me out of there about two hours ago. I thought was going to be the schedule. So I really appreciate it. I recommend that outfit.

Dr. Mohama explained some things about my condition that I wasn't aware of which was very helpful. He was very thorough in that the only thing that was different is it would have been nice guy he could have conferred with my cardiologist beforehand, so they could both be on the same possible page for procedure or where to go from here. But hopefully they will converse and get that figure it out. But Dr. Mohama was very good at explaining things for me gave me some options which was a little difficult to come up with an answer because I was hoping you would tell me just what needed to be done rather than giving me options, but I understand the reason for doing that also to stay at the guest house was exceptional and that was a very nice that that is available.
