Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor,

On our first day of hiking in the Black Hills, we never expected to visit the Peterson Memorial Hospital's emergency room, but we did.

And, it turned into a positive experience. It started when we were met and evaluated by Rebecca. Her pleasant disposition and professional demeanor made us immediately comfortable. Then we met Dr. Holman, who was equally as pleasant and professional

After a complete examination, Dr. Holman requested both x-rays and blood tests. Two very nice young ladies went to work and were both very business-like and equally as nice.
