Coulee Medical Center ER and Walk-In Care

Doctor is not replaceable

Letters to the Editor


Upon reading the letters regarding issues with the Coulee Medical Center, I concur with what I’ve read.

I recently was in CMC (9-12-13 to 10-28-13) recovering from a practical hip surgery being done in Spokane. I could hardly wait to get back to the coulee.

The caregivers were great. Not a bad one at all. Kindness beyond what you’d think.

As far as I’m concerned, my primary care provider would not be able to be replaced. When you reach 87 you do not want to have to go over your life medical history. Dr. Castrodale has seen me through cancer, regular care and now the hip surgery. He knows me and my family. If I had to go to Spokane for all this, my children or friends would need to take time from work as I no longer drive out of town.

Those of you on the board, know who is causing the problem. Release that person. Keep the caregivers who are doing a great job and get on with business.

Thank you to all caregivers who made my extended stay such a pleasant one.
