CRDAMC – Logistics Division
ICE comment: December 2, 2014
"I wanted to take the time to write a very, very positive feedback for our custodial crew in Bennett Health Care Clinic. Ms. Aritza Ortiz has gone above and beyond to provide us support since I met her day one working over here. She is always willing to go above and beyond to meet our needs and even located a larger trash can for my office. She is always friendly. Mr. John Hill always greets me with a smile when he comes to work. It is very clear that he works very hard to meet all of our needs here at work. Also, Ms. Nancy who I talk to during the day from time to time is very hard working and friendly to us all. Thank you for your service. I am grateful to work with such competent and caring professionals."
CRDAMC – Behavioral Health
ICE comment: December 8, 2014
"CPT Rubio is really a great care provider. I can honestly say throughout the years I have been in the Army that I haven't always had a great experience with a lot of doctors but I can truly say out of every doctor I have seen no matter what it has been for he is at the top of the list of the best. You can tell he cares and he isn't just a one solution type of doctor and he doesn't blow you off. I think it's great that the Army has him as a provider especially for behavioral health because I believe it is one of the most important clinics out there. I have had a hard time recently in the Army and after every time I see him I feel a lot better."
CRDAMC – Army Public Health Nursing
ICE comment: December 9, 2014
