When I had my hip replaced in July 2013, many of my senior friends at Old South Union Church in Weymouth strongly recommended I recover at Royal Rehab in Braintree. They particularly recommended Sam Gicho, who was a legend at the church. He was the guy who made all the pain bearable with his wonderful ability to find out all about you and to go the extra distance in all care needed. He became like a family member and he made me feel that I was his only patient. He had a remarkable attitude about life, being a nurse, and following through. He’s the best representative of his profession I’ve ever met. And I’ve seen plenty.
