Dr. Joe and Cheryl Howe were presented with the September Service Hero award for their humandkindness toward a patient.
A patient’s spouse nominated the Howes for how they treated her husband.
She said the two coworkers made a personal house call to check on her husband before surgery.
Dr. Howe was described as kind, compassionate, informative and witty which helped them relax. The patient’s spouse also said Dr. Howe’s love for his patients and healing was evident with his every action.
The patient’s spouse said Cheryl came out during the surgery to personally assure that everything was going well.
Thank you Dr. Joe and Cheryl Howe for showing your compassion to this patient and his family!
