I would be more than happy to be the "responsible adult" standing by in the Mayo Clinic waiting areas for your procedures. Having done this for my wife many times, I know the drill well.
We live in Rochester about a mile away from the Gonda Building front door. I am a retired US military officer and have been volunteering at Mayo Clinic since 2007. Because of COVID-19, and because all volunteers have been temporarily furloughed, doing this for you would be a natural extension of my normal volunteer duties.
Should you need a reference for my good standing as a volunteer, you can contact either of my Mayo Clinic volunteer services managers: Lisa Brink at 1.507.255.5653 or Rebecca Hynes at 1.507.284.5520
If this is your first trip to Rochester and the Mayo Clinic, I can also help with directions and the process flows. I can also help with finding accomodations and transportation should you need that assistance.
Please private message me and I'll share my contact information. My last name is pronounced "show-land."
@csjolundjr, Cliff – What an amazing offer and quick connection. Thank you.
You'll notice that I removed your personal telephone number and email address from the message above. I recommend not sharing personal contact information in a public online forum. We don't want you to get unwanted spam as a result. Instead I recommend using the secure private message function to exchange contact information so that you and @adelinahorse can connect.
Adelina, I'd like to also make you aware of another free service at Mayo Clinic – the Concierge Services
The staff at the concierge desk can help answer your questions about shuttle service and travel times between locations on the Mayo Clinic Rochester campus.
