Accolades for our clinic

February 3, 2009 —

I wanted to share this lovely letter recently sent to administrators at the Des Moines University Clinic. The links I inserted for your convenience, cuz I’m nice like that. Enjoy!  – Courtney

To Whom it May Concern,

I wanted to extend a heartfelt “Thank You!” for the phenomenal service I received at Des Moines University on 12/17/08.

At the time of my appointment with Dr. Lewis, I was having severe foot pain when I walked. Dr. Lewis determined I should get an x-ray and see a specialist. His honest humility and commitment to my care greatly impressed me!

Since I needed to be back in the office in a couple of hours, Dr. Lewis personally made sure I could be seen quickly in radiology and podiatry. Mahoney was wonderful! Within 90 minutes I had a diagnosis (broken bone) and was fitted for a boot.

I just wanted to thank you for such a personable staff dedicated to caring for me in the time frame I needed!

Grateful patient, Stephanie Lengtat

(on a side note, Dr. Woolley referred me to Dr. Lewis and his treatment relieved the chronic back pain I suffered with for years. Thank you for that too!)

Courtney Tompkins has been part of the DMU marketing team since Nov. 2005 and loves promoting a school she believes in so thoroughly. Proud daughter and patient of DMU alumni, Courtney knows, first-hand, that Des Moines University is doing a world of good. A fan of all outdoor festivals, fruity drinks and nearly all edibles, she has a hard time narrowing down her list of favorite places to go and things to do but lists the Iowa State Fair as an all-time fave. She loves her 8-minute commute to DMU from Urbandale, a suburb of Des Moines. She and husband Tyler are owned by three large dogs, Tonka, Tucker and Tank.

    Great to learn how chronic back pain can be resolved without surgery.
