I had surgery on August 20 with Dr. Kenneth Foster and Karen Orr, PA-C. I was very worried and anxious about having surgery. However, the staff made this experience as smooth as possible, easing my anxiety and explaining the procedure thoroughly. Karen is very approachable and straight forward about everything. She made me feel so secure and comfortable with everything. Even after the procedure she has welcomed all my questions and concerns with patience and kindness. Dr. Jill Cardwell, my anesthesiologist, was equally compassionate about my fears. Jenn was my pre op nurse and I couldn't have gotten a better nurse! I didn't even feel my IV, and she made me feel like we were simply hanging out! Marlene the PACU nurse ensured I was pain and nausea free! I am honored to say I work at Meriter and would recommend others to seek care from Karen and Dr. Foster. Thank you all so much!
