My wife and I want to thank you for setting up yesterday’s appointment with [PiCC partner] and my father. Dad seemed happy with how it went, despite being reluctant or skeptical beforehand. And it gave my wife and me back a few precious hours that one or both of us would have lost. So far, the Partners in Care Concierge program is fitting our needs perfectly.

Please thank [our PiCC partner] for the report she wrote about my sister’s doctor appointment in September. [The PiCC partner’s] report was comprehensive and clarified exactly what I wanted to know about that visit. Even more important, I think [the partner] helped to calm my sister who, apparently, was not too happy about going to the doctor that day. Through Partners in Care Concierge, JFS provides much-needed support to long distance families. Thank you very much.

I wanted to thank you for [name of PiCC partner’s] excellent help. He was very personable, but more importantly very efficient. He picked me up on time. His summary of the doctor’s report was exactly what the doctor told me at a later date. Kudos to [volunteer’s name] and Jewish Family Services!

Even though in my ‘regular’ life I’m able to remember things well, in the middle of the medical crisis I was in physical discomfort and felt anxious about my condition…enough so that I couldn’t recall what each doctor I met said…and there were so many doctors, from so many specialties, I could hardly keep track! I found myself unable to clearly explain my prior medical conditions.  I was so grateful to have someone…to serve as an interpreter between my doctors and myself and make sure that each doctor’s instructions were well-recorded so I could remember them later.
