Following a heart attack a couple of months ago, I attended Eastern Health Wantirna's evening cardio rehab program. The staff (Matt, Viv & Georgie) were wonderful. From the moment I walked in I was made to feel comfortable & relaxed, no one was judgmental and no question was too much trouble. The program was very well run. The exercise program was tailored to my ability and Matt took great care to ensure I knew how each exercise was to be done whilst keeping the exercise fun with his jokes & one liners. Viv & Georgie provided support during the exercise program and then ran excellent education sessions after. I learnt much during these that has helped me understand & adjust to what happened to me. They genuinely care about their patients and it clearly shows in their engaging manner and friendly approach. Much praise is given the ambulance & hospital staff that look after you immediately after a heart attack and there is no doubt it is deserved but for me Matt, Viv and Georgie are the unsung heroes helping me adjust to life after.. Thanks Guys, you make a big difference.
