Patients' Stories

We are proud to share with you what our patients say about us...


    “Dear Ms. McVey,

    My name is Brian C. I am writing this letter to express my thoughts and feelings to you regarding my current healthcare experience at Meadowlands Hospital.

    After a biopsy in April, 2014, I was told by Oncologist/Hematologist, Dr. William Cieplinski that a malignancy was found and that I have lung cancer. Needless to say, I felt like I had been hit by a freight train, but Dr. Cieplinski was a calming presence. All appropriate diagnostic tests were ordered, then Dr. Cieplinski thoroughly explained my treatment options, patiently answered all of my questions, gave me invaluable insight as to what to expect during treatment, and informed me that I would be starting chemotherapy very soon. He expressed concern, but also expected that I would soon be making improvement. He was focused on the solution rather than the problem, and this really helped me to do the same.

    On May 1, 2014, I began treatment as directed by Dr. Cieplinski and was introduced to Ms. Amanda Blanco, RN. She is the nurse at Meadowlands Hospital who administers my chemotherapy. I was quite fearful and full of anxiety, but as I observed and experienced how she went about her work, those feelings quickly faded. I was impressed with her knowledge, professionalism, and demeanor. She rapidly earned my confidence and helped me to feel much more at ease. As the treatment cycle progressed, Ms. Blanco’s ever smiling face and outgoing personality made my weekly visits much more pleasant experiences than they otherwise would have been. She is fantastic, and I am grateful for the profoundly positive impact that she had on my attitude at a time when I wasn’t feeling very optimistic.

    I have nothing but praise for the level of attention and care both Dr. Cieplinski and Ms. Blanco have delivered. I consider myself very fortunate to be in the care of such quality professionals. This is an intensely emotional experience for me and I could write so much more, but in the interest of brevity, I’ll conclude by saying that I am very happy I came to Meadowlands Hospital and have such wonderful people working for my wellness! Thank you so much!

    Sincerely,
    Mr. Brian C."

    "Recently, I underwent a stereotactic breast biopsy here at Meadowlands Hospital Medical Center after a suspicious area was found on routine mammography.
    Thank you Dr. Izgur for your thoroughness and skill in picking up the abnormality! Needless to say I was more than a little apprehensive! I just want to share how amazing our staff really is! I was one of the first two patients to have this performed here at the hospital and from the performance and organization of our staff – one would never know that this was our maiden voyage!
    Dorota, our mammo technician, you made sure that I was in the optimal position, in order to get the best views, which can be uncomfortable for the patient, but you made it less so and constantly checked to see if I was OK. Thank you Dorota!
    And thank you Linda and Adrianne for your vigilance and support! I knew I was in good hands when I saw that you both were going to be the nurse monitors!
    Thank you Dr. Daniels, your skill made the procedure both painless and quick!
    And, a special thanks to Gloria and Eda for all their efforts in organizing this momentous event! It was no small feat, with all the coordinating, scheduling, equipment, new policies/procedures, etc. involved!
    Thank you again Dr. Izgur and Alice. You were both very comforting!
    And, Dr. Cieplinski, thank you for your caring and compassion and mostly for the good news!

    A heartfelt THANK YOU to all involved!
    Most sincerely,
    Kathy"

    "Dear Ms. McVey,

    I trust you will excuse the informal aspect of my note to you. My purpose is to offer my heartfelt thanks for the care and treatment of my wife Catherine Mc Adam that was given by many members of your staff, ranging from the Emergency Room to her private room and lastly to your Intensive Care Unit where "Renee" passed away on August 12th. Through all stages of her treatment, I was kept well-informed, while all of us (family members) were accorded respect and dignity throughout those difficult days.

    Nurse Maureen McGroarty in the Intensive Care Unit was such a standout in every regard! This lady is a "gem" who truly serves as the ultimate model of the caring, gentle, superior nurse and human being we should aspire to become. In every sense of the word, Maureen is a true professional! Thank you for a job well done.

    Yours truly,
    Charles Mc Adam"

    "Dear Ms. McVey:

    Our daughter, Brittany was hospitalized on February 26-28, 2013 in the pediatric ward due to an illness. While hospitalized, I must commend on the whole that the entire staff was most helpful, accommodating and caring.

    I also want to bring to your attention in particular to two individuals who exemplified the best in Meadowlands Hospital.

    First, the admissions lady on the afternoon of February 26, 2013 who directed me to the emergency room and made the transition at the emergency room much smoother and quickly. I felt I was being escorted basically by the hand since I was so distraught at the time.

    Second, Melissa, pediatric nurse. She is the most amazing, thorough, cheerful, caring, hardworking and supportive nurse that we have ever come across, and we were blessed to have our daughter under her care. At one point, we needed to leave our daughter alone for a couple of hours. Melissa was there to assist our daughter when she developed a crisis with her IV line and thereafter checked on her frequently to make sure that she was comfortable and doing well.

    Finally, Dr. Aly is the best pediatric doctor, and the Meadowlands Hospital is so fortunate to have him on your staff.

    Excellent staff and excellent hospital. We plan to use Meadowlands in the future.

    Sincerely,
    Ivette & David A.
    Bayonne, NJ

    "To Sabina Sanchez, Patient Advocate,

    We would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude to those people from the hospital who treated my husband. First the people from the Emergency Room including Dr. Eric Perez, Yvonne King and Ambika Roy. We were then admitted to the third floor (Telemetry, 3West) and were helped by Daniel Osei, Vane Choi and Bernadette Maingi. All of these people need to be complemented on their care and efficiency. They made a somewhat stressful situation much easier.

    Thank you again, Patrick and Elinor T."

    "The nurses were wonderful attending to my needs. The doctors were great – they took time explaining my condition to me when I did not understand. The X-Ray technician made me feel relaxed and were patient with me. The staff treated my friend very respectfully – like he was the patient! The Registration Clerk made me feel comfortable like she knew me my whole life. The staff is very good and take their jobs seriously. They are not there just for a paycheck – it was a very nice stay and very clean. The service was the fastest I had ever had in a hospital and I am from South Jersey. If I had to go to a hospital again I would definitely choose Meadowlands Hospital..."

    "Dear Ms. McVey:

    This letter is to inform you how grateful I am with the staff at MHMC. My 21-month old son, Ethan Roque, was there yesterday at the Same Day Procedure Unit to get ear tubes placed in. From the moment we entered the hospital we were greeted with a smile by the security officer which was very courteous and directed us where to go. As soon as we walked into the Same Day Procedure Unit, the nurses were wonderful. They treated my son as if he were a family member or their own child. The played "peek-a-boo" with him and made him laugh until we were ready to go to the OR. At one point, Ethan was getting cranky because he was hungry and wanted his milk but since he was going under for this procedure he couldn't have anything to eat or drink; a nurse made him a balloon out of a glove and put a smiley face on it. My son calmed down for a while and played with it. It was so amazing! The Anesthesiologist, Gregory B., was so nice and informative.

    As soon as my son went into the OR, my husband and I went to get some coffee and a bite to eat at the cafeteria. Since the procedure was quick, an Aide came to get us at the cafeteria to inform us Ethan was already in the recovery room. Once we got there, I saw a nurse carrying my son to try to console him because he was crying. I was so grateful that this nurse was doing this. I didn’t know how to thank him for taking such good care of my son. Everyone at this point was all so great! They kept us well informed of everything that was going on and made sure we were comfortable.

    Again, I would like to express how grateful I am to the whole staff that made my experience at MHMC so wonderful! I would definitely recommend this hospital to everyone. I have been to several doctors’ offices, clinics, and hospitals since my son has been born and we have never received such great service like we did here at MHMC."

I would like to thank you all by name but after being there for over a month I think the list would be too long and I may forget someone, not on purpose just due to the amount of people I came in contact with. You truly all are "Angels of Mercy" and my hats off to all of you. Thank you once again from the bottom of my heart."

    "Dear Ms. McVey:

    I wanted to write to you and say that is was a pleasure meeting you at the Brunch on Sunday. It is a comforting feeling to know someone in your position can be so open and available. I am not really sure if you remember me, but I was introduced to you by my sister.

    I would also like to give a brief bio on me. I have been a panic attack/anxiety patient for over 20 years. Two years ago, 2 tumors were found in my abdomen and were removed at Meadowlands Hospital. Since inception, CAT scans were the way to determine if the tumors were growing back and thankfully they have not. The reason I mention it is that I would like to let you know that one of your employees makes the nerve wracking experience a lot less scary. Her name is Melanie Dross, CAT Scan supervisor. I don’t know how differently I would be able to take these tests so regularly. I have had over 11 since this all started and she was present for all but one. I automatically calm down when I walk in and see her.

    I feel people like to complain when things go wrong so I thought I would write about an outstanding employee. She truly is a lovely and professional worker.

    I wish you luck in your position at the hospital, which I am lucky and proud to have in my hometown.

    Sincerely,
    Judith Preinfalk
    Secaucus, NJ"

    "I loved the fact that there was a shuttle to pick me up and take me home after the procedure since my husband could not be with me due to business. Everything and everyone was very professional!"
