Stacie: For years, I suffered with something that was called sick lead vomiting syndrome, which oftentimes would throw me into what's called diabetic ketoacidosis. I was spending days, weeks, months in the ER and in a hospital in ICU.
During one of my hospital stays at Summa Health, I met Dr. Teagarden. She introduced me to the Complex Care Clinic. It's a whole team working to better your health. It's given me a better quality of life.
I don't go to the emergency room anymore. I can give Dr. Teagarden a call or leave a MyChart message. I feel valued as a person, because I have such a great team looking after me, and they work together. And Dr. Teagarden really saved my life, and she hasn't give up on me.
