Dear Editor:

I wish to echo Tom Steen’s letter to the editor of last week that sang the praises of the Pagosa Springs Medical Center and their excellent staff. I too experienced firsthand the wonderful facility that we have right here in our town.

This summer, I had two surgeries performed by Dr. Dave Schaeffer and his team. Their incredible skills and first-rate facility made my journey through today’s health care challenges an experience of positive caring results! If you don’t know about the programs and vast menu of procedures offered right here in our home town, you should reach out and see just what a gem we have here. PSMC is one of the largest employers in the county and has developed to meet our changing health needs. They have us covered.
