Truly Professional
November 25, 2013

My daughter was running a very high fever and throat pain. When we arrived at the clinic at 9 am, the walk-in time was over and we were told by someone that we have to wait and take her to after-hour urgent care clinic. Ms. Kimberly went ahead to find a spot for my daughter. She helped the other secretary on duty to complete my daughter's registration and scheduled my daughter to be seen by a doctor in less than an hour. She is a kind-hearted, truly professional employee and an asset of UTMB. Thank you, Kimberly. -- Ruksana Huda

Thanks Mike for going above and beyond! During a particular difficult delivery, where the floor and equipment was accidently splattered with blood, after resuscitating the baby, Mike stayed and cleaned up everything. Every little drop, to make sure the stand was ready again and area safe! Thanks alot, you are a Great UTMB Employee! Thank You, Christy -- Christy Talbert

Deborah, Thank You for going above and beyond, even when you were feeling sick and busy. My parents from an OSH arrived with no place to stay and you help me secure a place for them at RMH that evening. Your Rock In My BooK and you are a GEM to me :-) -- Dianna Stiles
