Pardee Urgent Care receives Words of Thanks

Pardee Urgent Care received the following "Words of Thanks" in the Times News on Thursday, July 15.  Thank you, Claudia, for your wonderful praise of Pardee Urgent Care and congratulations to the staff for a job well done. Dear Community: I would like to use this platform to publicly thank Pardee Urgent Care for their excellent service and the care they provided my mother a couple of weeks ago. Mom is visiting us from Chile, she doesn’t speak any English, and though I had to translate, everyone made special effort to make her feel comfortable and ease her pain. We were there for about three hours by the time we were done with x-rays and all the tests. Chuck Bryant was very thorough, so nice and polite. The nurse that did her x-rays was super sweet too. Thanks to everyone for all you did for us that day. Your job is greatly appreciated.     Claudia J. Dalton - Hendersonville Click here to view the article.
