The Cystic Fibrosis Team greatly appreciates John for his excellent work with one of our families. Before working with John, this patient missed many appointments, had unnecessary admissions due to poor adherence and poor clinic follow up and had strained interactions with providers. Due to insurance complications, the family was unable to receive family and individual counseling. John went above and beyond and provided in home family counseling. As a result many aspects of the patient’s life have improved including; mood and affect, family communication, involvement in peer relationships, patient’s health and adherence, patient’s communication with providers. Our team is very thankful that John was willing to work with our patient and we are extremely grateful for the change he has helped create for this patient.
