“I didn’t want to get sick…but if I had to do it again, I would certainly do it here.”

David Majorowski, 39, of Quinebaug, Connecticut, is very familiar with emergency departments. He has been Captain for Webster EMS for the past 10 years.

“I’ve sent a lot of patients to the emergency department at Webster. The new facility is outstanding. It’s large, spacious, modern, and very clean. It’s welcoming, too, not sterile,” he says.

In April of 2015, instead of being the one to send people to the emergency department, roles were reversed, and Majorowski became the patient.

“I woke up around 1 a.m. with terrible pain in my chest and in my stomach,” he says.

He was driven to the new Remillard Family Emergency Center at Webster, where Dr. Jarrett Burns diagnosed him with gallstones. From there, he was transported to Harrington Physician Services in Southbridge, where Dr. Colette Whitby proceeded to remove his gallbladder.

“Everything went very fast,” he says. “I went in around 2 a.m., had my surgery at 10 a.m., and then went home later that evening

“Dr. Whitby is just phenomenal. She came and talked me through everything she planned to do.  Dr. Burns is great, too; in fact, all the physicians are just wonderful.  What could have been extremely stressful turned into a very pleasant experience.”

Majorowski has had no problems related to his gallstones since the surgery, but feels comforted knowing he has reliable care so close to home.

“As ironic as it might sound, it was a wonderful experience. Of course, I didn’t want to get sick and lose my gallbladder, but if I had to do it again, I would certainly do it here.”
