Our patient, Phil Von Hemert, shares his experience at WDH after having a stroke:

Phil Von Hemert fell one morning putting on his running shorts. His speech was garbled, he couldn’t see out of one eye and his right hand had no strength. His wife Susan, a nurse,knew something was terribly wrong and said,
“My God, he’s having a stroke.” She called Dover Fire & Rescue to transport Phil to WDH. In less than an hour, Phil was in the Emergency Department having a brain scan to determine the type of stroke. Following the scan, a WDH neurologist conferred with neurologists at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH). They determined Phil should receive the clotbusting drug tPA, which can only be used within the first three hours of a stroke. Susan agreed.

Ten hours later Phil was feeling close to normal.

Two days later he walked out of the Hospital and back to his regular life.

All the dots connected for Phil. Susan and the EMTs got him to the Hospital quickly. WDH’s high level stroke care and affiliation with MGH resulted in a quick diagnosis and treatment right in Dover. Phil and Susan are still running thanks to fast action and expert care.

Pictured above is Phil Von Hemert and his wife Susan.
