    Excellent! I met Dr. Dana while providing hospice care at my grandfather's home in March of 2017. I was his caregiver and Dr Dana made things very easy for me to understand and clarified all questions I had. He felt like family and I truly wish I would have used Health First hospice instead of Vitas hospice that I use for my grandmother 3 months prior. There was no comparison Dr. Dana and Health First hospice is outstanding and I thank them very much.

    I met Dr. Dana when my mother was briefly with Health First Hospice at Viera Hospital. What a caring and warm man! He was the ONLY person in my mother's 2 weeks of hospice care (we moved her to Wuesthoff Hospice in Rockledge which was a mistake!) who asked my mother about herself and showed interest in the person he was treating. When she asked him tough questions, he was honest, sincere, and also tried to be reassuring. I wish in retrospect we had stayed with Health First Hospice and Dr. Dana.
