Karen Swantek recently shared her surgery experience on Facebook, and gave us permission to share her story:
An unscheduled trip to the ER in Freehold
“On Wednesday morning, I had a busy day planned, but what I did not plan was a trip by ambulance to CentraState Medical Center with horrific upper gastric, mid-chest pain. Thank God, it was not my heart, but I needed gallbladder surgery, and that is where I met Dr. Seun Sowemimo.
As can be expected, I was anxious (I am a planner) so I do not like to have surgery on the fly, so to speak. Dr. Sowemimo was so kind, so knowledgeable, and took the time to ease my fears.
He did not push me toward surgery, but calmly and clearly gave me my options, all with concern and humor, which as anyone who knows me, knows I appreciate.
I went with my gut (pardon the pun) and had him do the necessary surgery with very little anxiety about the procedure. I felt safe in his hands, and I was!
I was released the next day and went about my business with very little pain or discomfort.
I cannot thank him enough, not just for doing the surgery, and easing my pain, but for being an exceptional human being about the whole thing.
Dr. Seun did not just treat my symptoms, but treated ME and made me feel secure.
Thank you so very, very much.”
