Grateful Patient: Mark Davis

Dr. David Gutherie


He saved my life…

I'd hurt my back and unknown to me, I had an internal infection that was threatening my life.  As my wife and her sister rushed me to the hospital, I was in excruciating pain.  It was so bad that my wife and my sister carried me into the emergency room.

Once my infection was discovered, I was taken straight into surgery. Afterwards, I met my surgeon - Dr. David A. Guthrie.

He saved my life.

It's been a long road to recovery. I've been in the Chambersburg Hospital four times since that fateful day in 2007, but it's not been an unpleasant journey.

As a matter of fact, it's just been a wonderful experience. Something that could have been very bad wasn't, because the hospital's people - everybody - have been so caring.

You always hear so much negative stuff about hospitals but I want to congratulate our Chambersburg Hospital…the nurses and physicians; the kitchen staff who prepare the meals; the aides who clean the rooms; the Billing department who help with insurance questions…

What an excellent hospital we have here…  I've been treated "well" on my road to recovery.

I have another upcoming surgery after the first of the year and I feel very confident and at ease knowing how I've been treated in the past.  I know how this upcoming surgery is going to go.

I'm grateful for what everybody at Chambersburg Hospital has done for me.  I'm also happy that we have such a talented and caring medical team here at home.

Thank you Chambersburg Hospital!

Mark Davis, Chambersburg
