Once upon a time many years ago on a warm Monday morning in June,
I met Doctor Linda K. Carney, MD. I wasn't feeling well and although my wife is a RN; after taking temps, pulse and blood pressure readings she knew there was something else not right. We didn't have a routine family primary care physician so we randomly selected Dr. Carney.
Dr. Carney immediately ordered staff to administer an EKG. She then asked me to sit in the waiting room. Moments later she said she had a cardiologist read the EKG, that she had already admitted me into the local hospital and had her car parked out front to personally drive me to the hospital. I was admitted and an angiogram was accomplished and determined I needed further treatment at a better equipped hospital. The next day I was transported by ambulance to another hospital where a angioplasty was performed with the insertion of two stents. Dr. Carney most likely saved my life. I later found out that she had previously worked in Emergency Medicine for several years.
Our family then adopted Dr. Carney as our Primary Healthcare Physician and we all could not be happier. She has provided us in-depth, up-to-date information on diseases, medications, dietary and lifestyle choices. Each and every visit with Dr. Carney was an event we looked forward to and learned more about common problems associated with Internal Medicine such as; obesity and smoking as related to potential cardiac disease, lung disease and diabetes. It was surprising to learn how imprtant physical exercise was to health.
Clearly, Doctor Carney reinforces the patients knowledge, motivates proper personal behavior and facilitates the removal of medical barriers to total wellness. She allows patients to make positive choices about their health, education and self-controlled lifestyle. One of Dr. Carney's key traits is that she listens very carefully to the patient's personal conerns prior to reaching a thoughtful diagnosis. Because of the time spent with Dr. Carney, our personal health remains better and stable because of the education and guidance she provided. I am 78 years young.
Yes, Doctor Linda K. Carney, MD is truly a life saver!
