There were two certain individuals…Kerrie Rapp and Josie Villanueva…they do a super job and I just wanted to give you a call and tell you that their customer service is out of sight and they’re good people and thank you guys very much. We do appreciate this catering for our flu clinic…”

….the UHS staff who received this comment from a student patient: “I wanted to take a moment to say that UHS has been wonderful to me every single time I have needed to come for an appointment…UHS always makes me feel very well taken care of and I appreciate the kindness of every single staff member I have interacted with. From the student volunteers…to the receptionists to the nurses and doctors…everyone works to create such a great environment. I really appreciate it. I honestly do not think that a university healthcare facility could be better run or staffed with more caring employees.”
