Writer says everyone should be thankful for doctors, staff at UMC

To the Editor:

I wanted to share a personal story with you and all Wilson County readers.

Because of University Medical Center and dedicated doctors, I am alive today. In late July I was experiencing pain in my abdomen. Dr. Shah sent me to UMC to have a CT scan. The scan was administered by William (I don’t know his last name). He found a mass on my left lung and notified both Dr. Shah and my personal physician Dr. Roger McKinney.

Dr. McKinney called me immediately and set up an appointment with Dr. Kehinde. He performed a biopsy, and it was cancerous. He set up every test that had to be performed before the surgery.

Dr. Kearney did tests on me before the surgery was performed in Nashville to remove the mass. It has been almost a year since it was discovered, and I am cancer-free. I owe my life to these professionals and I thank them and the good Lord every day. The entire staff at UMC went out of their way to comfort me throughout the entire ordeal. We should all be thankful to have such a hospital and staff.
