    Patient Comments (1)
    in Burr Ridge, IL |
    I arrived at Good Sam via ambulance, Nov. 2010 - for what we thought was merely a bad case of the flu. Dr. Wander just happened to be on call in emergency - he recognized, and quickly treated, my septic shock syndrome and necrotizing fasciitis, flesh-eating disease. He saved my life, he saved me from amputation. Many people do not live through what I had. Dr. Wander is the truest of professionals. He knows his 'trade,' so so well. I am living proof. I thank him so very much.
