Satellite Healthcare — In the Words of Patients
Let Us Hear From You!
Do you have a Satellite story to tell? Is there something we can assist with to make your experience better? Do you have a question about dialysis or kidney disease care?
We care what our patients believe and communicate about the services we provide them. To ensure we are meeting the needs of our patients and excelling in the care we provide, Satellite Healthcare surveys our patients annually to obtain their feedback and comments.
Additionally, we get letters from patients and their families letting us know how grateful they are for the care we provide. This is why Dr. Norman S. Coplon started Satellite; he wanted to provide expert care with the greatest compassion for patients and their families.
Below is a sampling of what some patients have asked us to share with others about their care.

“How do I even begin to thank you ALL for the wonderful care, help, guidance, and love that we have received from you? The classes to help me become comfortable doing hemodialysis as well as your patience with us was good beyond belief. You were always there to give us the boost or jump-start we needed.”

Satellite Dialysis Patient — Eased My Fears
“Your employee gave me a tour of the treatment area and answered my questions. He was extremely knowledgeable and has an incredible gift to provide a level of comfort beyond words.

I look forward to this being my facility of choice. Thank you for hiring people like the ones I met who can ease our fears.”
