Our Patients and Their Stories: Amy P's Experience

Can you tell us something about your experience in Italy?

In this period I live in Rome and study Modern Languages at the Roma Tre University.

Recently she injured her leg while skiing in Abruzzo. Where was he and what happened?

I was in Ovindoli, abruzzo, skiing with a group of friends. We were descending on a track full of rocks and ice when I lost control and fell, ending up in a split. We called the ambulance and I was taken to the emergency room.

What happened next? Who called?

After the first investigations in the local emergency room (x-rays, CT scans, blood tests, etc.) I was advised to do an MRI. Back in Rome, I called Dr. Andrea Guerriero to book a resonance for the next day, but he advised me to go to UPMC Salvator Mundi International Hospital that same evening, as there could be an internal hemorrhage. There they immediately welcomed me and scheduled the resonance for the next morning.

Did you already know the MedinAction agency or had it been recommended to you by the university?

I met the MedinAction agency and Dr. Guerriero through a group of foreigners residing in Rome and I resort to their home service every time I need a medical examination. It is an extraordinary service because there is always someone ready to help you, plus the doctors are reliable and work with passion. I highly recommend it to the entire international community.

Can you tell us something about your admission to UPMC Salvator Mundi International Hospital?

During my admission to UPMC Salvator Mundi International Hospital, I always felt calm. The doctors and nurses took excellent care of me and the private room they assigned me was very comfortable. All the people I interacted with were kind, caring, knowledgeable and genuinely interested in making me feel good.

Did you already know UPMC?

Yes, my brother works at UPMC in Pittsburgh (USA), so he was very relieved to know that I was in a UPMC facility in Rome.

Would you recommend UPMC to other international patients living in Italy?

I would definitely recommend UPMC and Salvator Mundi International Hospital to all foreigners living in Rome. The assistance was excellent. I almost felt at home!
