CRDAMC – Pharmacy
ICE comment: January 28, 2015
"The pharmacy staff at Darnall was very professional and the tech was very accommodating and professional with a great attitude. Even though my medication was not on the formulary they made it their point to contact me the same day on both my home and cell phone to tell me that I needed to pick up my prescription and have it filled at a civilian pharmacy. I really appreciate the consideration that I needed my medication in a timely manner. The tech also checked on a medication that was on backlog order and filled that for me as well. This is great service. Thank you for your great customer service."
CRDAMC – Thomas Moore Health Health
ICE comment: February 04, 2015
"My health care provider is Mr. Kure. He is exceptional and the best I've ever had. He is always available, very friendly and knowledgeable. He really cares about his patients and their well-being. I'm so glad that he is my assigned provider. Dealing with tough conditions is hard but knowing that your provider is always there for you doing the best he can to help you, is priceless. I cannot thank him enough. Thank you, Mr. Kure!"
CRDAMC – Medical/Surgical/Pediatrics Unit

"This was the best service we've had at Darnall. Actually all our experiences have been good, but this one was great from the beginning doctor in ER to the last discharge nurse. Even the housekeepers were great. Keep up the great work 3 South. Great bedside manner; information thorough and genuine concern."

CRDAMC – Family Medicine Residency Center
ICE comment: February 06, 2015
"My experience today was my first time receiving care at CRDAMC. The RNs in FMRC were very nice especially Ms. Seleta McCoy. She went over and above to get me a thumb splint, walked me to Orthopedics and spoke with people to get me to the right place and waited for me to get the splint"
CRDAMC – Same Day Surgery/Surgical Processing
ICE comment: February 09, 2015
