Richard Smith Stroke Patient Testimonial
Richard Smith enjoys golfing with friends in the morning, so when he woke up feeling sluggish one day and decided to stay home instead, he and his wife knew something was off. Later that day when Richard awoke from a nap unable to navigate and speak, his wife recognized symptoms of a stroke and rushed him to the nearest emergency department where they consulted with a nurse and TeleSpecialists neurologist. Thrombolytic treatment was immediately administered and within a few days Richard felt stable and able to communicate. Thanks to the quick actions of Richard’s wife, the ED nurses, and the TeleSpecialists neurologist, Richard made a full recovery and has returned to golfing with his friends.
