Testimonials
 
Victoria Goodin
Cape Girardeau, MO

I would like to take the time to thank Laura Murphy, Brandy, Gevonne & Heather. This team works by the "Golden Rule." Treat others as you want treated." They have been such a wonderful support helping me get through this past year. In June of 2014 I was diagnosed with stage 1 lung cancer & 12 benign large nodules on my thyroid gland that were going to cause problems possibly in the near future. I had been quit smoking close to a year at that time. I wasn't having any kind of breathing problems. Since she knew I had smoked a long time & had been quit she ran breathing test on me so she could put it in my file to have a base line of my best breathing should she ever need it. My score was not the worst but was bad enough for her to want to be cautious. She sent me for a chest x-ray. I went back to work & received the phone call a couple hours later that there had been a spot found on my right lung. I had a upper lobectomy removal on my right lung. Then after being home just a few days I was rushed by ambulance due to double pulmonary embolisms. Once I was strong enough I had a complete thyroidectomy. This was all done within six months. Before I ever went to see Laura for a checkup I had been telling my doctor how fatigued I was. He had plenty of opportunities to find both of these problems. Most lung cancer is found towards the end of the 3rd stage & mostly in the 4th stage. And it is found while looking for something else. If Laura had not been thinking about the FUTURE, wanting my base line breathing for future reference IF needed, I would be your typical stage 4 finding! Not the stage 1 that I was. Not only do I give my God I love, but I also give Laura Murphy the credit in all of this. Dave & Ladies thank you for all of your kindness & help throughout this journey we did not choose. Your patient & friend always, Victoria Goodin God Bless all of you!

KAREN SUGGS  |  Mother of Austen Vandermark
Cape Girardeau, MO
It gives me great gratitude and sincerity to write to you expressing my appreciation for the services rendered by the MedStop One staff. You have been such a blessing to me as a mother of a son with autism and ADHD. My son, Austen, was diagnosed with autism at the age of 4, and after many, many specialist seeing Austen in Cape Girardeau, Carbondale, St. Louis and Memphis, none have met up to the professional, courteous, thorough services he has received through the years from MedStop One. I have been through many downs with Austen with him having a chemical imbalance, along with autism and ADHD, and MedStop One has been right there beside me through the madness of finding medicine that will assist Austen to learn and grow.

I commend MedStop One for their services they have provided myself, but especially my very special child, Austen. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your sincerity and much needed medical attention through the years.
