In celebration of Doctor’s Day, March 30th, I would like to take a moment to thank the wonderful doctors that have taken care of my father since he moved here from Boston. Our heartfelt thanks go to Dr. Eric Power, Cardiologist, Dr. Robert Fenning, Hematology and Dr. Cindy Feely, Internist, for their excellent care, patience and listening skills. My father’s health has improved significantly with their careful observations, attention to detail and follow-up. We are so grateful to have these wonderful doctors at MUSC.

Both of my children were sick. When my son was 4 years old he became sick at daycare. We found out that he was born with avm. They didnt expect him to live from Trident to Musc. They performed his brain surgery 6 days later. He now has a shunt in his head. He is now 10 years old. My daugher was a preemie. She was born at 34 weeks. She had to have surgery at day 2. She was born with doudenal atrisa (sp?) She had to stay in the hospial for 81 days. She has a malabsorbtion issue now. She is actually fixing to get a g tube put in. She is 19 months now. All the doctors and nurses are wonderful. I dont know what i would do without musc. They are truly blessings!!! Thank you for all that you do.

In May 2010 I was diagnosed with AL Amyloidosis. I had just celebrated my 42nd birthday and 14th wedding anniversary with my husband, our 7 year old daughter, and our 3 year old son. I had never heard the term Amyloidosis, and had no idea what to expect for the future. It was the incredible team work of my MUSC doctors, nurses, lab technicians, assistants and staff who I refer to as my MUSC Family that I celebrate today and every day. My family includes Dr. Robert Stuart, Dr. Michelle Shepard, Dr. William McKibbin, Dr. Jeffrey Akhtar, Dr. Karim Tazi, Dr. Chelsea Rainwater, Dr. Megan Baker, Dr. Toya Pound, and all the Pathologist, Radiologist, and Cardiologist who I never met but worked on my case. I thank God every night for you! You have truly “Changed What’s Possible” for me and my family!!! I’m not only proud to be your patient but August 3rd I will be celebrating my 20th anniversary as an employee with MUSC. How fortunate I am to be a member of such an outstanding institution. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for “Changing What’s Possible” in my life!! May God continue to bless you and your families.
After months of my health steadily deteriorating, my doctor in Spartanburg reached out to MUSC to diagnose what was happening to me. It was then that I met Dr. Moran. He was compassionate, caring, knowledgeable and thorough. He pulled in his colleagues at MUSC to discuss what was happening with me and brainstorm on possible causes. Within two weeks he determined what was causing my health issue – a rare allergic reaction to a medication for my heart – so rare that I actually became a case study! I am so grateful for his expertise, his compassion and how he truly changed what was possible for me. Please share my gratitude with Dr. Moran and the team at MUSC on National Doctor’s Day!
Eight years ago this month, my son was recovering at MUSC from his second open heart surgery performed by the very capable and caring hands of Dr. Scott Bradley. Throughout his stay, he was cared for by Dr.’s Shirali, Atz, Graham, Bandisode, and many others to whom we are forever indebted. Their skill, dedication, and passion for their work is unmatched. Today, we are the parents of a happy, healthy ten year old boy that brings joy to our lives every, single day. To Dr. Bradley and all of the other members of the MUSC Children’s Heart Program, please accept our sincere thanks for the work that you do on behalf of “heart kids” across South Carolina. You are the best!
