Hear From Our Patients

Judy Bone – Bridgeville, DE

In January 2017, I fell and broke my wrist. It was 11:30 pm and Dr. Doran was the on call doctor at Nanticoke Memorial Hospital. I had never broken a bone before, I was scared. I am so glad I got Dr. Doran. He put my fears at ease. I could tell he really cared about me as a person. He had to do surgery on my wrist and I was very pleased with the minimal pain and final outcome. My wrist is fine. However, that’s not the end of the story. In September 2017, I fell in my kitchen and broke my hip. Now I was really scared. I had heard so many horror stories about broken hips. Of course it was an emergency and there was an on-call doctor, but not Dr. Doran. Nothing against the on-call doctor, but I opted to request Dr. Doran do my surgery. He did a fantastic job. People in rehab were constantly telling me they couldn’t believe how well I was doing. I told them God and Dr. Doran got the glory for that. I left the rehab on a Wednesday. I went to church that Sunday. By the third Sunday, my pastor said he actually forgot to request prayer for me. He said he had forgotten I had surgery because I was walking so well. I am 71 years old, so I feel that is remarkable. My husband is having his knees done in November by Dr. Doran. My husband and I both have the utmost confidence in Dr. Doran.
