Coming from the Sacramento area 3 years ago, I was used to a different type of health care. Mostly professional yes, but not even close to the more personal care I receive at UIHS. Every staff member I have dealt with in the UIHS system has been wonderful. I had a dental cleaning this afternoon with my hygienist, Kaitlyn Olvera, & like always she made my appointment a pleasant experience. Courteous & professional. Others I have dealt with whom I would like to recognize are Ashley Buckskin, Beverly Switzler, & Anna who answers the phone at both Smith River & Crescent City. I’m sorry I can’t remember her last name. I’m proud & honored to be a patient at UIHS. Thank you all

When I moved to Smith River 2 years ago to live out my retirement years in this beautiful coastal community, & a place to mourn the recent passing of my wife, I was warned that the only possible negative here was healthcare. However, I was fortunate with my Miwok Heritage, to qualify for acceptance into UIHS. Best health care I've ever received. I came from the Sacramento area where there were many large medical & dental facilities. While most were adequate, none matched the quality of care I have received from UIHS. My primary care physician is Dr. Roxanne Alsbury. She has treated me with care & compassion even though I falter occasionally. She's the best. Sorry I don't know last names, but a few other people I would like to praise are Anna & LaRhonda who work the front desk area. Kaetlyn, my dental hygienist, Erin, Dr. Alsbury's nurse. Also Ms. Buckskin & the lady who cooks for the elderly nutrition program. Thank everyone involved in UIHS.

Just got home from work this afternoon and found a beautiful bag on my front porch filled with all kinds food items like oatmeal, soup, apple juice, health snacks, etc., etc. I guess I received it because I am an elder. I am so thankful for the care package. And the bag is beautiful! I didn't know this was going to happen. Thank you to Community Health & Wellness and all who helped fill the bags, etc. I am very thankful. Thank you, thank you.

Shout out to Kathy B. for her quick response to help advocate for a client and get him the care he urgently needed. You are appreciated!

Kathy B is the best. A patient called me with an issue that he couldn't seem to get help with, so i called Kathy B and she helped me advocate for the patient and the patient got in to be seen the same day. :) Thanks Kathy

My compliment and appreciation is for Dr. Raymer. I was diagnosed with Diabetes this past march and in really bad shape. Dr. Raymer did a very good job explaining this disease to me and educating me on how to take care of myself. He continuously followed up with appointments and by phone to make sure I was doing ok and always asked me if I had any questions to not hesitate to call him and ask anything. I have never had a provider do this for me before. For the first time, in my adult life, I actually felt that my health was important and I felt confident that my providers had everything under control. With that being said, my other compliment is for Grace Mcatasky, she was the one who referred me to Dr. Raymer, knowing that my situation was dire. I am very grateful for both of these providers and UIHS is very lucky to have them on staff.

Hi! We saw a show on LINK TV today about you folks restoring the environment and also your health center -- those are wonderful projects! We used to live in Arcata back in the 1980's and loved the area; it's a good place for your work to take place. The sweat lodges that were featured on the TV show were especially interesting to us -- can you tell us when they occur and any details that we need to know about taking part in sweat lodges there? Thanks very much!

Heather eased my burden by showing compassion, caring and knowledge to my “suicidal” son. Loved how she treated us and made a plan to feel safe. Medication and a referral to counseling. Counselor called my kid almost immediately. Thank you,

I just wanted you to know that I am in a healthcare MBA program, and one of my classes is in marketing. We were asked to post a link to a Health Clinic webpage, and the UIHS webpage had a lot of nice feedback from the other healthcare professionals in the group. They really liked the look and the content that was there. Just wanted to say GREAT JOB!

Hands on Health Conference

We attended the Hands on Health conference last week and enjoyed it so much. The presentations were innovative and full of great info. The staff were very kind and eager to share their knowledge. It was a large conference that still had a personalized feel and was probably the best conference I have ever attended. Thank you for all your hard work!!

The Fortuna clinic is convenient for me and my family. The staff is always very friendly and helpful.
