"I wanted to write a letter thanking Dr. Yankow, Norma and all the other staff members that donate their time and energy helping those in need.
I moved from North Carolina almost 2 years ago and at the age of 52 did not have any health insurance. I was referred by a dear friend who said The Good Health Clinic might be able to help and she was right.
After meeting the qualifications for assistance, I received a full physical and was able to continue with my blood pressure medicine. Over the past 2 years I have had several occasions where I needed to see a doctor and The Good Health Clinic was there to help. On my last visit I was in poor health, my blood pressure and blood sugar was up and I could hardly make it up their stairs.
I met with Dr. Yankow and he said, "Chuck if you don't lose weight, you won't be around next year." I told him I had tried losing weight and even considered the lap band but just couldn't afford $18,000 the surgery. Dr. Yankow turned to me and said, "Don't worry about it. Let me see what I can do." I received a call the next day from Dr. Yankow saying he was able to get the surgery donated from Baptist Hospital.
I have had the surgery and 2 weeks after, I have lost 20 pounds and I'm feeling great. My blood pressure and blood sugar is down and the swelling in my ankles and feet has gone down and it doesn't hurt to walk.
I cannot thank The Good Health Clinic, Dr. Yankow, Norma and staff, The Baptist Hospital System and all the others that truly help those in need enough, especially now in these tough economic times. Thank you....thank you....thank you!!!!"

"I have been a resident of Key Largo for a little more than five years. I have been working in different jobs and had no insurance. A friend of mine told me about the Good Health Clinic, and thank God, because the people there literally saved my life when I had a recent condition that caused an infection in my blood stream.
To the locals with financial problems and no insurance, I wanted to say that the Good Health Clinic is here to help us, and that they did help me get seen by the best surgeon in the Keys, Dr. Orlando Morejon. He and Mariners Hospital took care of me. It was a great success.
Dr. Yankow is a good man and very knowledgeable and Norma is a very kind and understanding woman. Thanks to them I can have a regular life.
So to all the locals, don't be hesitant. Your health is very important and there is a good chance the Good Health Clinic can help you."

"To all at the Good Health Clinic,
Your thoughtfulness knows no end. And there is no end to how grateful I am. Thank you for all your help and being here for so many people."

"Thank you all very much for providing me with such quality care in my time of need. It is so great to know that when you really need to see a doctor, and you can't afford care, The Good Health Clinic is there to support the people of the Upper Keys with such great medical care.
In particular, I would like to thank Norma Anderson for all her follow-up, detail work and support with all my appointments, paperwork, and attention to all my needs. It would not have been possible to have my surgery that I desperately needed, nor to have quit smoking without everyone's guidance and support.
Dr. Sandy Yankow you are very caring and one of the best doctors! Thank you for your expertise and for your caring efforts in helping people with their medical needs.
In addition, all preventative annual necessities of basic medical needs were provided and I was attended to in a most caring way. I cannot thank you enough for all that you did (and do) for me."

"I wanted to thank you for the excellent job you all are doing. When I found the clinic I was only hoping to have someone see me and get my blood pressure prescription renewed. However, you all exceeded my expectations.
Being uninsured is difficult enough. Your clinic made me feel that I was not less of a person because of my lack of insurance.
The service that you are doing for the community is amazing. I feel very blessed to have found you and even more blessed that you care so much about your patients. Thank you so much for your hard work and dedication to helping those in need of medical care. You are greatly appreciated!"
