Doctors couldn’t determine the cause of Beto’s stomach pains. After many appointments with clear blood tests, he determined that nothing more could be done, so he moved his family to Idaho to get his end of life affairs in order.
As the stomach pains continued, his wife insisted that he go to Terry Reilly. Since he and his wife were unemployed, he was put on the Patient Assistance Fund. He agreed to return for appointments only because of the assistance to pay for care that they were getting. The Terry Reilly doctors took time to listen to Beto and sent him for additional testing. The results showed there was a rare bacteria in his stomach, and after receiving medication the problem was completely resolved.
“At Terry Reilly, the staff spent time with me and cared for how I was feeling. The extra time they spent and attention they gave saved my life.” –Beto
Since then, Beto’s wife has gone to medical school and now works at Terry Reilly so she can assist others in the same way her family was helped.
