My husband and I would like to thank Suburban Community Hospital for providing the opportunity for us to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.
As seniors, we were having great difficulty gaining access to the vaccine in the area where we live. So when our daughter, Kristen Piano, called to tell us that your hospital was allowing their staff to invite qualified family members to receive the vaccine, we were more than excited and appreciative to participate.
We would also like to commend the hospital staff on a job very well done. The organization of the event was exceptional. The staff was friendly, professional and efficient. We felt so welcome. Several staff actually thanked us for coming. We even enjoyed taking a selfie to share with our family.
Thank you again and kudos to the hospital for a job well done!

I am emailing to recognize Nurse Ellen, Dr. Chernyak ( Anesthesia), Carl, and staff. Ira needed a good teeth cleaning and some fillings, which is more complex than it sounds.
First, I must say that Nurse Ellen is so phenomenal that I can only use the word, “paramount”. My son is a 38-year-old Down’s guy and has PTSD from being hospitalized for two months with Acute Respiratory Failure. Nurse Ellen was so kind and supportive, she was redirecting Ira’s fear on sight. Her energy and understanding were crazy amazing and so welcoming. I am just in awe of her professionalism and being able to work so well with Ira.
Carl is fantastic! He was so kind and always ready to do whatever it took to calm Ira and help. He is a sweet man with a ton of knowledge in and out of the OR.
Dr. Chernyak is all professional. My Ira had heart and lung issues that make him fragile when needing general anesthesia. I have to say, at first, I was not sure if this is right for us, but Dr. Chernyak was making sure the I’s were dotted and T’s were properly crossed. I must say, my son has never gone to sleep that easy and woken up that calm. I was in disbelief that Ira was not screaming and fighting upon coming out of anesthesia. We are home and happy and I am still in disbelief at how easy Ira came out of his induced slumber. I saw the softer side of Dr. Chernyak with his interaction with Ira when he woke. This doctor absolutely knows his stuff and if we have to come back for this again, I would want this same team.
This is a very good hospital with great staff- from the nurse (Lisa, Karen, & Ellen), to Pre-Op, to the registration gentleman, to the OR staff, who all work as a well experienced team.
Thank you to ALL who had a hand in my son’s successful procedure.
With Warmest Regards,
~Laura B – honored to be Ira P. Mom~
