The Gentlest Blood Draws

Extraordinary Healer®, Extraordinary Healer® Vol. 15, Volume 15,

A patient details how a nurse made her experience with blood draws, which can be difficult due to compromised veins, a much more pleasant one.

My veins are very compromised, and Wayne Allen at Maryland Oncology and Hematology in Silver Spring made the blood draws look easy. The atmosphere in the office with patients and colleagues was very pleasant and my arms were not bruised. I have to keep getting my blood drawn, so please God let it be Wayne that does it.
