Denis’ Story

Denis came to the Clinic a few years ago at the urging of a friend.  He was first seen for a physical and it was discovered that he had high blood pressure and high cholesterol.  The physician started him on a blood pressure medication and referred him to the Clinic’s medication assistance program.  On a subsequent visit, he had a screening PSA test.  This time, his PSA was very high and he was referred to a urologist and subsequently was diagnosed with prostate cancer.  Forty radiation treatments later, Denis was cancer free.  “The nurses at the Clinic saved my life.  Without care, without a check-up, I don’t think I would still be here.”  Denis thanks Donna Rodriquez, RN, Dr. Lesser, Dr. Mowery and Diane Fuller, Clinic Nurse Manager, for all their help!
