"Riverside Walter Reed Hospital has always been the obvious choice for my family and me. We live within walking distance of the hospital's campus and when serving on the Gloucester Board of Supervisors in the 1970s, I was an early supporter of having a community hospital. Although my roots and close proximity make Riverside Walter Reed the most convenient hospital, I am proud to say that I would gladly drive hundreds of miles for the level of service and kindness Walter Reed has shown me. When I needed surgery to repair a hernia, the staff at Riverside took care of me as if I was part of their family. My surgeon, Dr. Melvin Ressler, was experienced, knowledgeable and made me feel safe and confident about my procedure. The nurses were kind and sensitive. I was especially impressed that everyone took the time to learn my first name. The experience was everything I could have hoped for and a whole lot more. I think Walter Reed is special because it combines a hometown feeling with the most up to date medical service available, and even better - it's right here at home."
