Patient Testimonial


Dana Dolloff
Stroke Patient Testimonial

Dana Dolloff experienced a stroke while spending a routine day with his daughter, a nurse practitioner. Recognizing the signs, they promptly dialed 911. Prior to this, Dana’s Fitbit recorded atrial fibrillation events, leading him to consult his cardiologist. Upon arriving at the hospital, a stroke specialist administered thrombolytic treatment within 15 minutes. Dana quickly regained mobility and speech. Three days later, he was discharged, swiftly returning to his normal activities.
