  • Four years ago I met Rhonda and couldn’t even think straight! Now I manage an office and have been able to be proactive with all aspects of my job. I highly recommend RHS and have referred friends and 3 regular RCMP members. I liked having the same respiratory therapist who has assisted from the very beginning how to adapt and how this therapy improves life but sharing with someone who genuinely cares makes using CPAP equipment easier. - Oct 25, 2017

    DA,

  • Very thorough and patient to understand and listen. Provided good advice. Professionalism and follow up call reminders. - Dec 2017

    JB,

  • Everyone here made me feel welcome and very helpful. I have used different masks giving me a chance to make sure that it is a good fit. I had headaches driving me crazy and woke up tired and grumpy. None of that anymore! Thanks to CPAP. Very informed therapists and helpful. Willingess to help me feel better with my therapy during this trial. - Dec 28, 2016

    AV,

  • I’m not sleepy in the afternoon. I wake up feeling that I’ve had a restful sleep. I think that I seem to think clearly about things. Try it, it worked for me, could work for you. Don’t be hesitant to try it. It will change your life. The staff is very patient. When I came in for my first appointment, I was very reluctant about the process but was OK with things after Rhonda’s explanations and information about the CPAP equipment and use and fit. - Oct. 16, 2017

    GH,

  • I feel 10 years younger and get a good quality of undisturbed sleep of 6-7 hours. The efficiency and professionalism. No high pressure or pushiness. Sept 13, 2017

    DO,

  • The staff makes you feel welcome, know what they are talking about. CPAP has given me more energy, sleep through the night.

    HR,

  • I am very impressed with RHS service and the staff who make it all work so well. From initial contact with Susana or Allison to Ray Jim on tank deliveries, to Kurian and Wasim who come to my home to make sure everything is working properly the service is always accurate, on time, and delivered in a cheerful and pleasant manner. This is very important to me as there are days when the IPF symptoms can be depressing. Their positive attitude really helps.

  • I was diagnosed with Severe sleep apnea in Feb 2017 and was dealing with your location at 113 Haddow Close in Riverbend. My initial contact was Elliot and have dealt with Tory Staal the Sleep Therapist since then till June 02 nd 2017 when I made the final purchase of the CPAP machine. Tory is a highly profession lady who exhibited lots of patience,professionalism, politeness, care and attention.
