REGAINING MY INDEPENDENCE AFTER MY CARPAL TUNNEL RELEASE
I am so excited now that I have underwent a Carpal Tunnel Release with Dr. Brzezienski. I dealt with numbness in my whole right hand for 5 years. It was difficult to cook, knit and even teach my students with the constant numbness and shooting pains on a daily basis. Now I have all the feeling back in my right hand am an pain free! Thanks so much Dr. Brzezienski for giving me my independence and freedom back to me!
BACK IN THE KITCHEN
It was about one year into my first job out of culinary school. My hands were hurting and going numb at night… while I was sleeping. The doctor said “carpal tunnel” and gave me some braces. Early on the braces worked some. I made dietary changes and that would work some. After more than 15 years, I was tired. Tired of not sleeping and tired of being in the middle of chopping mirepoix for a soup and my hands hurting and going numb. Tired of not being able to pull weeds and grip the brakes on my bicycle for fear my hands would keep me up all night. I finally had carpal tunnel surgery. You cannot even see the scars on my hands. After my surgery, I wondered what I could and could not do. Dr. Kennedy said “if you can stand the pain then you can do it.” I needed to get back in the kitchen… to work. It was a rough first few weeks, but I took his advice. My hands are back! I hand wrote this testimonial and my hands didn’t go numb! I am beyond thankful for Dr. Kennedy and the Plastic Surgery Group and Hayes Hand Center!
A NEW LEVEL OF EXCELLENCE IN PATIENT CARE
By 64 I was sure I'd met every level of doctor from one to ten. Dr. Jemison and his staff do not fit this scale! I am amazed to come in as a new patient, quickly schedule surgery and get it behind me with unbelieveable ease and speed. Dr. Jemison listens and remembers better than any doctor I have ever seen--and his stitches are a work of art! He treated me like a special person, his caring is unbelieveable.
His staff provided direct numbers for me and responded quickly to each request. They called to check on me multiple times and dealt with insurance personnel and my employer with unheard of speed. Thank you for introducing me to this new level of excellence!
SAVING MY HAND AFTER A WORK ACCIDENT
Dr. Rehm is a wonderful doctor! Earlier this year I got my hand caught in a roll up machine at work. I was immediately air lifted to Erlanger and didn't know how badly my hand was injured until my family told me. None of us thought my hand would ever look or feel 'normal' again. Dr. Rehm did such a remarkable job repairing my hand. Other than a few scars, my hand looks completely normal!
EXCEPTIONAL PROFESSIONALISM AT HAYES HAND CENTER
I have been coming to see Dr. Jemison since December 2010. I had surgery on my arm in 2011 with many follow up visits as well as physical therapy at Hayes Hand Center. Everyone has been so personable and professional with kind words and smiles each time I see them. If I ever have to call with a question I always get prompt responses. I actually look forward to coming to my appointments at Hayes Hand Center.
I have worked with the public my whole life. I have worked in hospital administration and see firsthand the people skills and professionalism that Hayes Hand Center possesses. I truly feel blessed to have found your group.
DB & TB
I COULDN’T BE HAPPIER AFTER MY SURGERY
I am completely satisfied with the surgical procedure performed on my left thumb and wrist by Dr. Rehm. He showed both compassion and concern for me before and after my hand surgery. In addition, his staff was both courteous and professional at all times. I'll be going back to Dr. Rehm again in the near future for surgery on my right hand.
PUTTING MY CONCERNS AT EASE
I am so thankful for Dr. Rehm for taking the time and patience to check my injured thumb! I was so worried that I had broken it and was thrilled when he told me that it was only a sprain. Now the swelling has gone down tremendously and it hardly hurts. I wish I could repay the countless kindness that Dr. Rehm and the staff at Hayes Hand Center have shown me during my visits to the office. Each time I visit I realize how blessed this community is to have the talent it does.
RETIRED CAPTAIN FROM CHATTANOOGA FIRE DEPARTMENT
I am a retired Captain from the Chattanooga Fire Department and have been an Emergency Medical Tech since 1974. During my time in the fire service I have been around numerous doctors and medical professionals. Dr. Jemison and the staff at Hayes Hand Center are by far the most polite and professional group that I have ever encountered. I was made to feel like I was the only patient in the whole office and believe me when I say that makes me feel very special.
TAKING TIME FOR PATIENTS
This is the second time I have seen Dr. Jemison. He operated on my left hand and it was very successful and I had no problems, then he did my right and I had no problems whatsoever. What makes me like and feel so good about Dr. Jemison is that he has time for his patient's. If you have questions he explains the procedure and tells you what he expects. He is a very patient and friendly doctor. I would recommend him to anyone who is having problems with their hands or needing surgery.
