In the week of Nov. 5, I contracted an allergic reaction to the air in this area of Klamath. The result was a dry, hacking cough, which got worse as time passed.

Finally, on Nov. 23, my caregiver convinced me to go to emergency at Sutter and see a doctor. On arrival we were greeted by Dr. (David) Wilson and staff. Everyone was pleasant and very helpful. I was assigned a room and my treatment for pneumonia was begun.

Everyone, from all of the doctors, nurses, cleaning and culinary people, was very attentive, caring and quick to maintain my comfort and treatment. My grateful thanks to everyone at Sutter Coast Hospital.
