Dr. Malloy is My Hero

Dear Mr. Bugg,

I am compelled to write to you, to tell you about a very brilliant man in your hospital. His name is Dr. John Malloy, orthopaedic spine surgeon.

For nearly 8 years I have been in bed more than participating in my life, due to chronic and agonizing leg pain. The only time I was not in pain was when I was in bed. I was literally not functioning or participating in life any more. When I could not endure the pain, and the epidurals and pills were not working any longer, I made an appointment with an orthopaedic surgeon. After viewing my MRI, this doctor he did not see a problem, and that was the end of that. I was shocked and devastated to say the least, and scared to death that there was no hope. I thought that if this surgeon did not see anything wrong, then no one would. I was desperate.

However, after telling my also wonderful Dr. Killini, (a pain management doctor at Broward North) about the other surgeon who had dismissed me, he calmed me down and recommended that I make an appointment with only Dr. John Malloy. I did, and after viewing my MRI, Dr. Malloy showed me where the problem was, spent a good amount of time with me, and agreed to operate. I could barley breathe, and didn’t remember one thing he said because I was so relieved. The only thing I remembered was that he said he would operate.

It is now 5 months later, and have been 100% pain free! I have my life back! Thank you Dr. Malloy, thank you!

Not only is Dr. Malloy a brilliant surgeon, he is kind, empathetic and humble. He is truly my hero.

Mr. Bugg, I just wanted you, the CEO of Broward North Hospital, to read this letter, and take note of this very special man.

Sincerely yours,
Phyllis T.

A Top Notch Team!

Dear Dr. Janke,

I wanted to thank you for performing my hip surgery last week. I guess it went very well, because I was able to return home Tuesday afternoon to complete my recovery. My friends all told me how successful their hip surgery was with you, and that is why I decided to use you as my surgeon. What they didn’t describe to me was how wonderful and efficient your entire staff at Broward Health North was during their hospital stay. Everyone was so professional and very caring.

You arrived to say hello and mark my left hip before surgery. That helped put me at ease for the operation ahead. Then I was taken to the prep room, where a very nice gentleman gave me a sedative to help me relax, and then the anesthetic. The next thing I remember is waking up in the post-operative room. Following that, I was moved to my own private room on the third floor.

From the moment I arrived, every person who handled any aspect of my care did so in a professional, caring, and pleasant manner. The following morning, the physical therapist came to walk me down the hall and inform me that he would be back to take me to rehab class at 1pm. The rehab class was very informative. While I was there, I learned that I would get to go home that day, once the x-ray and radiation were completed.

This demonstration of thoughtfulness and caring by every member of the team has definitely helped to make me (and I am certain many others) feel relaxed about the procedure. What a great help to the recovery process! This is a tribute to the hospital and your guidance.

Thank you!  Just can’t say it enough.

Dr. Naide,

Again, for the second time, you have given me back my life.  I fully trust your skill as a surgeon and your compassion for other sentient beings.  Equally important is our friendship. Thank you for caring.
