Walter's story - grateful patient

I’m so grateful to have found Dr. Yaghi at Rhode Island Hospital! – Walter Lemek

After Walter suffered a hemorrhagic stroke, the weeks of rehab that followed were very challenging. His family struggled to have questions answered elsewhere and knew there had to be a better option. That’s when they found Dr. Shadi Yaghi at Rhode Island Hospital. “My parents were very hesitant to trust anyone at that point, but five minutes in the exam room with Dr. Yaghi, and they felt safe and cared for,” explains Gina Johnson, about her father’s experience. “I can’t really describe the relief we felt.”

Walter says, “Dr. Yaghi is very thorough and he really listens. He truly cares about his patients and I’m so grateful to have him as my doctor.”
