Second verse not at all like the first | Letters

Last October I wrote a scathing letter about my experience with the clinic at Peace Island Medical Center.

Last week I had occasion to use both the clinic and, a few days later, the ER. To state that my recent experience was a vast improvement over my last visit would be an understatement.

In both the clinic and ER, I experienced friendliness, outstanding helpfulness and wonderfully competent medical care. I am certain that the entire experience was better than I would have had on the mainland.

My sincere appreciation and thanks to the staff and doctors at the hospital. Being sick and in pain is certainly not pleasant, but you made my visit the best experience possible. Thank you.

Alan Davis, Friday Harbor
