THANK YOU 11.09.13


— I WOULD like to thank Dr. James Crotty along with the nursing staff and anesthesiologists for the excellent care I received during my recent stay in the Day Surgery Unit at EASTAR Hospital’s Main Campus in Muskogee. The city of Muskogee is very fortunate to have such an excellent medical facility.
