Teacher Says “Don’t Put Off Screening”
Kathleen Metter knew when she turned 50 that she should schedule a routine colonoscopy. As a biology teacher at Hickman High School, where she teaches 10th graders, Kathleen wasn’t squeamish. “Nobody likes to talk about the colon, but it’s a part of us. But everybody’s busy and has to find the time for screening.” 
Greeted with thoughtfulness, genuine concern and caring

On Dec. 9, 2013, I presented at the Radiology Department for a CT scan at 9 a.m. Upon my arrival, I was greeted by the most friendly, and caring person that I’ve had the pleasure of meeting in recent memory, with respect to my last several doctor’s appointments and evaluations.

“Kind, professional and above all caring” — Praise for emergency department nurse

First of all, I would like to apologize for the delay in getting this note out to the appropriate person. However, it has been a very difficult time for our family and we can’t move forward with the grieving process without thanking a very special employee at Boone Hospital.

I went to see Dr. James Pitt on April 18, 2013, for a consult. He sent me right from his office to Boone for some X-rays and that is where my story started.
