Patient Testimonials

 

"I was 12 when I was diagnosed with pectus excavatum. I began experiencing shortness of breath, a racing heart and pain—I had to stop doing all of the things that I enjoyed. I couldn’t go hiking, I would get dizzy and I’d have to stop because I was afraid. I couldn’t run, and I love to run. I looked so different that I felt really insecure.

This summer I hiked to the top of Spencer’s Butte – I made it all the way to the top. It was amazing." – Krystal Coker, 18, patient

"When my daughter went in to have her pectus excavatum corrective procedure, Dr. Ruscher was just wonderful. She was so good at addressing all of my daughter’s questions and had a great bedside manner. She provided so much support and was really in tune with Krystal’s needs." – Robin Coker, patient’s mother
