"I have been enrolled in the Cardiac Rehabilitation Program at Conway Medical Center since February 2002. Following a cardiac event in January of that year, my cardiologist recommended that I participate in the program. I chose the program at Conway because it was nearby. It was a good decision. The staff was knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. After completing phase II of the program, I was so impressed that I decided to stay with it and enrolled in phase III. I believe that this experience has contributed to my overall health and will continue to do so.
The facility is well equipped for its purpose and I cannot praise the staff enough, they are very competent, professional and compassionate. I would not hesitate to recommend this program to anyone who could benefit from it."
