My name is Lois Denlinger and I have been a patient at Crescent since 2012. When I first established care at Crescent I wasn’t feeling good.  After seeing my doctor, he recommended that I go to the emergency room since my sugar level was 500 + and I couldn’t keep anything down.  I was immediately hospitalized to get my condition under control.  Once discharged from the hospital I saw Dr. Badger for my follow up care plan.  I was set up on a treatment plan to monitor my Type II Diabetes which included regular visits, medication management, and overall physical health. Once my Diabetes was under control it was recommended that I go to the Wellness Center to lose weight and reduce my A1C level.  I have been a member of the Wellness Center for four years now and continue to attend five days a week.  I have my own workout regimen and also attend special classes: Balance and Strength and Sit and Be Fit.  I am currently one of the founding patient members of the Patient and Family Advisory Council, established in July 2017,  advocating and representing the patient and family perspective.  In the coming days and years, I will continue to utilize the services offered by Crescent as a patient, advocate, and advisor with a positive attitude while motivating others to succeed with their individual wellness plans.

Hi my name is Joe Lewis and I am a patient at Crescent Community Health Center. In the process of relocating, I was looking for a family based facility that could provide me with the healthcare services I needed.  After looking at the Crescent website I saw there were a lot of services provided that fit my needs. Once I came in for a visit and I was able to talk to someone, it helped me make a decision to be a patient or not. I decided to come to Crescent due to the one-on-one service I receive and the employees really seem to care about their patients. The clinic may be large, but it has this small feeling to it because I can get to know the people – it’s a friendly atmosphere.  So far I feel that they really care about my health and what they can do in order to improve my well-being.  I also joined the wellness center which is helping me achieve my fitness goals.  I can say so far that when I became a part of the Patient and Family Advisory Council it allowed me to share my experiences with others including family members and friends.
