I’ll be thinking of you🙏🌹

We lived st the Charter House for three months
Sep 15 – Dec 15. The entire staff is outstanding, professional, caring, & knowledgeable. My husband was transferred from another hospital in another state. Mayo teams helped save his life.

We needed to move from a Charter House end unit condo into a larger one bedroom where we could push a wheel chair with less difficulty. The entire staff worked with us during a busy time when condos were limited.

Daily cleaning staff was amazingly helpful, weather we needed cookware, towels or a recliner. They have everything.

When my husband was finally out of his body cast, he had unexpected Neuro surgery, again the staff was very kind about accommodating our continued stay and every need.

Since we stayed more than 30 days, we did not have to pay a room tax.

Being in the skyway system helped more than
we could imagine.

Having a condo was better than a hotel room.
And price was the same.

If you have a car, parking is included. If we needed assistance with anything the Mayo staff was there.

There were events that we could attend as well. A little grocery. A breakfast area. And a top floor dining area. Mail delivery to the front desk.

I am an 11 year lung cancer survivor. I visited with people who had transplant surgery and Mayo has a department where patients can meet others in transplant.

We have not experienced more outstanding care anywhere. At Mayo it’s about the best quality of life and it helped us heal quicker.

I hope this helps. All the best. Personally, I feel we were in the best medical facility in the world. And to top it off, we can Connect and have the support of understanding and caring people.

I wish you all the best.

Advocate Advocate Advocate for yourself. I do not know where you are. But, If you are a Mayo Clinic patient, take the first appointment they will give you and then show up as a checker at 7:00 am or 1:00 pm and wait for them to call you in to see the doctor. If you are desperately ill go to St Mary's ER. It has helped save lives. Now go Advocate. I do know that the teams that work with Mayo Physicians really are some of the most caring in the world!

Have you had a chest CT?

I am sorry to hear about your challenges. I too suffered greatly until my team of doctors took me off the drug. I feel alive again. I am running again. You may want to research a prolia European Study released the fall of 2018.

Dear Healthy 37 year old!
Our stories are very similar. Two years into SOB and excruciating upper left back/shoulder pain and many doctors visits, it was only during
a yearly physical at Mayo Clinic where my physician “listened to me & ordered a chest CT”! I was shockingly diagnosed with a 3cm tumor in my left lung. I was rushed into surgery with non small cell lung cancer.
After fighting back I have lived 11 years with a great quality of life.
My local doctors told me I was athletic, looked healthy and because I never smoked refused a chest X-ray telling me my chocking cough and SOB was psychological.
I can recommend that for me traveling to a large research medical facility is what saved my life. All of my follow up is at Mayo Clinic with a brilliant team of experts who keep a caring watchful eye on my lungs and body!
All my best.

I experienced thigh, hip, back & neck pain. Vision changes. Headaches. Low blood pressure. Prolia was not for me. My doctors told me to Stop the injections. Now I’m sleeping all night & running again and taking Vitamin D, Magnisum & liquid calcium. Lots of kale & blueberries too!
