Thumbs-up to Victoria Air Tech and Tyson for coming and repairing our central air conditioning the same day we called. South Texas without air conditioning is not fun.
Thumbs-up to the emergency room services at Yoakum Community Hospital. I had a severe bleeding problem because of a number of tooth extractions Sept. 11. The next morning, I went to the hospital. Dr. John Whisenant and his staff did a wonderful job. After taking care of the problem, they called both my dentist and my doctor.
