Alexandra & John Estey
The Geisinger touch
Alexandra Estey credits Geisinger with saving her life and gives to Geisinger Foundation to say “thank you”. While certainly grateful for the life-saving treatment she received at Geisinger, Mrs. Estey was “blown away by the sophistication, the quality and the humanity of the care.” “That,” she says firmly, “is why I love Geisinger.”
When recalling a terrible health ordeal she faced four years ago, Alix says, “I wouldn’t be here if Geisinger hadn’t been there. It’s as simple as that.” She celebrated a milestone birthday between the two surgeries that ultimately saved her life. “There is something special about Geisinger,” she says. “The doctors truly care about their patients. I felt a genuine, personal concern for me.”
“Geisinger physicians and staff not only saved my life, they made it livable.” Alix adds that she will never forget when she was leaving the hospital and the surgeon came in to say goodbye. “He knew I was in pain but asked if he could give me a hug,” she remembers. The deep care and personal concern for every patient shown is a hallmark of the Geisinger experience.
