I want to send my highest appreciation to the beyond wonderful nurse who did bloodwork on me this morning. I have never had a positive blood drawing experience in my life, but this woman was truly amazing. I hope to see her again and definitely hope she is at FCMC for years to come. Her professionalism, patience, confidence, and attitude make her stand out from so many. -Kristin H
