Testimonials

"I would recommend Pinecrest Rehabilitation Center with my eyes closed. My family and I appreciate everyone here. From the beginning the Therapy Department has been going above and beyond, to try and get my dad back to himself. I'm grateful for the Activities Department keeping him company and giving him things to do. The nutrition and kitchen staff is also appreciated. At home my dad was not eating lost a lot of weight so we feel a lot better knowing he is eating better and his weight is being watched. The soups and entrees are wonderful, he is eating more and feeding himself too! The Nurses and the Assistants are very caring and they do a great job in taking care of my dad and keeping him looking good. The Social Work Department does a great job helping with my dad and answering questions. I appreciate all the help I got from the Admissions department with trying to get residency for my dad. I also want to thank the Care Plan Department for the meeting information and everything they do too. I used to live near by and knew this would be a great place for my dad. My family really appreciates everyone. Keep up the good work. " - Milagros F. and Lazaro O
"My name is ReginaldB B (Room 124C), I have been a resident of Pinecrest Rehabilitation Center for the past month. I felt compelled to let you know how delightful the transition has been. I moved from my home to the rehab center, I thought it would be difficult. However, with the assistance of your exceptional nursing and administrative staff, the transition was made easy with everyone of my problems and concerns being addressed in an efficient and expeditious manner. They have made me feel 'Right-at-Home'. I have been under the care of the Veterans Administration for many years and have been in many hospitals and care facilities during that time I commend you for assembling such a dedicated and caring staff. The cooking staff must be singled out for the Love and Care expressed in the quality and presentation of every meal. Again, I commend you and THANK YOU - GOD'S BLESSINGS TO YOU AND PINECREST." - Reginald B

I will be referring you facility to the community, everyone will be hearing how wonderful and welcoming Pinecrest Convalescents is." - Mayte
"The primary purpose of my stay at Pinecrest was for the physical therapy, which I experience with phenomenal results. The first phase of my stay I was unable to bend my left leg since the infected joint had been removed and replaced with a spacer consisting of antibiotic cement. This part of my therapy enabled me to develop the physical strength necessary for the next chapter of my recovery. For the second phase of my experience, my new knee joint had been inserted and my physical therapy took on a different form. I can truly say my physical therapy made all of the difference. Not on was it intensive, it was valuable since it enabled me to reach a satisfactory level of functioning upon my dismissal.

Additionally, my weekly medical appointments were handled promptly with thorough efficiency and appropriate follow-up. All aspects were addressed, including preliminary test preparations and commencing with arrange transportation. It is obvious that every single member of the staff at Pinecrest are committed to high performance and try to provide a safe, warm environment for all residents. No matter the time of day or night, a friendly smile and warm encouragement was always present. From the top down, Pinecrest is the very best! Thank you for everything, this was an extremely positive experience. Please be kind enough to share this letter with your entire staff." - Merry

"I would like to thank you for your outstanding commitment to quality care and concern. The staff at Pinecrest has shown nothing but professionalism and the treatment has been much appreciated. So I would like to take this opportunity to thank a few of the staff members: First, Mr. Rolando Garcia (Business Office Mgr.), who I met the first evening I was there. He introduced himself to me and welcomed me. Ever since that day he has greeted me by my name.

Second, the next day, I met Ms. Krystle Miles (Social Services Dir.) and it didn’t take long for me to realize that she is a hard working and dedicated Pinecrest employee. Something that stood out was that she was never too busy to lend and ear. I want you to know how blessed Pinecrest is to have Ms. Miles as part of your team. Third, Ms. Latresa Baker (Medicaid Specialist), who I would say is also a hard worker and dedicated to Pinecrest. Ms. Baker also took the time to interact with the patients. It seems to me that it all starts with Ms. Baker. She is a very special find.

Fourth, Ms. Joyce Buiey (Director of Nursing) shows outstanding leadership and because of that she gets the respect of her nursing team. The following are a few of her team members that have shown outstanding care, concern and professionalism: Ms. Berlande Fertil, Ms. Johanna Vilma, Ms. Shelly Antoine-Joseph and Ms. Sacha Brice. Fifth, Ms. Moya Patrick (Social Services Assn’t), who I saw every day giving it her all in everything that she did. Always smiling and helped anyone she could. I would dare say that she is also committed and dedicated to Pinecrest.

Last but not least, Ms. Rita Evey (PTA) and the Physical and Occupational Therapy Department including: Maria Carona (OTR), Jayce Evey (PTA), Wendy Blackstone (PTA) and Liela (COTA Student) have done an outstanding job with me. They have done any and everything to get me where I am today. I will forever be thankful for all that they have done. Pinecrest should be very proud of their staff. They really care about helping and making us better. " - Mr. Andre R
"I, Ms. D. Baker, am commending you all for the help that was given to me when I came here as a patient. It was a critical time in my life. Yes, I was not able to function then, but I'm letting you all know that I truly appreciate all of your help. Even now, I still thank all of you for your help and your prayers. My Wound Care Nurses, Ms. Brice, Ms. Antione, and Mr. Torres, I thank G-d for all you did for me for going over and beyond the call of duty; along with telling me that I have to get out of my bed. I also want to thank Ms. Blackstone in therapy for bringing some exercise equipment to my room and helping and showing me how to regain my strength. She was very helpful to me. Thank you also to Ms. Baker in the Admission's office, she was very patient with me. And please don't let me forget to thank my CNAs - Ms. Louis, Ms. Carvil, and Ms. Previlus. Keep them all on your staff for they don't mind reaching out to help their patients day or night. Also, thank you to the caring kitchen staff so that they may continue feeding the residents at Pinecrest. Now the time has come when I must move on to greater and better things in my life. May G-d keep all of you in his daily care. " - Ms. D. Baker
