I am so impressed with the care that my patients receive from this department. I can consistently find somebody who knows a great deal about any specialty area that my patients require. My patients rave on and on about the quality of the services they receive at St. Elizabeth. I used to refer a number of patients elsewhere, but now have learned that if I want the best care for my patients for any reason, it is right here at St. Elizabeth.
