Although we treat patients every day, It’s not every day you get to meet a patient afterwards, when they are feeling better and see what a difference you have made in their life.

One of SignatureCare Emergency Centers doctors was honored to meet a man that he had diagnosed with a spinal injury and sent for surgery. Derrick Crawford was suffering from what he thought might be a stroke when he had a numbness and tingling feeling so he went to the emergency room. Derrick chose SignatureCare Emergency Center in Sugar Land. As part of his diagnosis and evaluation Derrick learned he was not in fact suffering a stroke, but had an injury that was affecting his spinal cord and needed emergency surgery. Dr. Aaron Braun, his treating emergency room doctor, scheduled and arranged immediate Neurosurgery for Derrick.

“The doctors saved me from possibly being paralyzed, I am no longer in pain and have my life back and I brag about SignatureCare to everyone” said a very happy- healthy Derrick Crawford.”

Our Marketing team arranged for Derrick to meet the doctor, Dr. Aaron Braun, who was Derrick’s emergency room doctor and treating physician. On Wednesday June 15th 2016- Derrick Crawford came into to meet Dr. Braun and the team and was able to say “Thank you” for changing his life. A very happy, healthy Derrick Crawford, spoke with the DR. and expressed his gratitude for Dr. Braun helping him “get his life back.” The meeting was very special, not only for Dr. Braun and Derrick Crawford, but for the entire SignatureCare team that was a part of this wonderful event. “Although we treat patients every day at the emergency room, It’s not every day you get to meet a patient afterwards, when they are feeling better and see what a difference you have made in their life, so the day was very special for me just being able to see how happy and healthy Derrick is now.” said Braun
