John Castriotta Stroke Patient Testimonial
Meet John Castriotta, a military veteran with 27 years of service. His life took a turn when he suffered a stroke on October 1, 2023. Thanks to his wife’s quick recognition of symptoms and the prompt intervention of a TeleSpecialists neurologist at the hospital, John received thrombolytic treatment. Despite initially being unable to communicate, he experienced a remarkable recovery shortly after. John credits the swift delivery of the clot buster for his full recovery.
Reflecting on the experience, he wishes he had taken his dentist’s advice to check his high blood pressure earlier. Grateful for the timely and dedicated service at the hospital, John is sharing his testimonial to highlight the importance of quick intervention in stroke cases.
