“Initially, I had to go through an MRI scan as prescribed by my doctor. It was my first test ever and I was nervous in the beginning. However, the doctors and staff at Hudson Regional Hospital made it all seem like a piece of cake. Special thanks to the gastroenterology department. They took the time to answer all my questions and assuaged all my doubts prior to the test. Thank you again for your amazing service!”

“Once my condition was identified, my admission into gastroenterology was quick and easy. There was no wait-time and was surprisingly quiet at night. I had a spacious room and the view was much better than I expected. They even brought in extra furniture so my mother could spend time with me at night.”
