Nomination Letters – McManus Medical

Leslie Baumann

My nurse of the past several years is Leslie Baumann, one of the most compassionate, considerate, and caring people I have ever been involved with in the medical field. It is my experience that when a patient first encounters Leslie, she is smiling, cheerful, very friendly, full of life and spirit, yet a professional. Leslie puts a person at ease from the very start. Leslie explains particular symptoms and solutions in easy-to-understand layperson language. As the office supervisor, she also emails prescriptions, talks to the pharmacists, and handles follow-up telephone calls to patients with different situations to see how they are doing.

The following is an example of Leslie’s commitment to her patients’ care and her attitude of nursing as a labor of love. I had the last appointment of the day and was running late. I called the office and told the receptionist that I wouldn’t be there on time and I would have to reschedule the appointment. Leslie got on the phone and told me to keep coming and that she would wait for my arrival. Upon my arrival I discovered all the staff had left except Leslie. She is a wife, mother, and a student in the process of taking classes to become a nurse practitioner. Leslie has something that is lacking in a lot of people today: common sense. Leslie treats patients like she would like to be treated herself. Dr. McManus is extremely fortunate to have a nurse of Leslie’s wisdom and caliber on his staff.
