Patient Review: “First off I want to start by saying thank you to every single person in that building. I cannot come up with all the right words to tell you how much I loved this place. The staff are such wonderful and caring people. The facility was spotless and smelled so clean. My personal favorite was the walk in shower on the lower level of the facility. I loved it so much I based my restroom renovation in my new home around it. TRUE STORY! My room was perfect and i appreciated the fact that they were able to accommodate my husband as well. I felt welcomed the moment I walked in. Every employee I dealt with greeted me with a smile and welcoming arms. I was a bit worried going out of the country to have surgery but I would not change my decision for the world. I plan to return in the near future for any of my surgical needs that’s for sure! Again I thank you Pompeii from the very bottom of my heart. See you all very soon ♥️” – Queenliz
