RoseMarie Jones M.D.
Had RNY gastric bypass 5/7/01 and Dr. Jones continues to steer me in the right direction over 11 years later. I was in Scottsdale, Arizona went to the ER because I thought I had a kidney stone. Well my lab results were abnormal, and the ER dr. decided he wanted to keep me for the night. I am a nurse and it was super hot in AZ so I knew I was more than likely just dehydrated as I had not pushed my fluids that day. The ER doc seemed to think I had an issue going on with one of my kidneys. I did have some back pain, and severe pain in my abdominal area--but not really knew, but the pain kept getting worse. After all sorts of testing over 5 days they diagnosed me with colon cancer, and told me I would need my entire colon removed. There was a colon/rectal surgeon consult done and I was not convinced that is what was going on and I was so uncomfortable having such a radical surgery being so far away from Indiana. I told them I wanted to leave and come to Indiana for any sort of surgery as such and I wasn't comfortable not knowing any of the doctors credentials. I was stabilized and discharged with instructions to immediately follow up with a surgeon once I got home. I left that hospital after being my own advocate as they told me it was against their advice to leave and I should remain their for the surgery. After discharge and before boarding my flight to come home I called Dr. Jones which was on a Friday afternoon there, but with the 3 hour time difference her office was closed. Luckily for me the answering service said Dr. Jones was on call and I got them to page her for me. I was so happy to hear her voice explained my crazy story with all the discrepancies they kept repeating during my care. She was amazed and told me to come to the hospital once I arrived. We decided after my labs were a bit stable that I would come to Community North on Monday for admission. She called in Dr. Shah as she knew this was a complicated case, which he did a repeat colonoscopy and ruled out colon cancer. She then took me to surgery to figure out where the pain was coming from. She found an internal hernia and made the repair. If it had not been for her knowing how to sort all the issues out I would be without a colon. So I most defiantly consider her my guardian angel. When I was faced with this massive issue she was the first person to come to my mind as I knew she would know where to proceed. I trusted her with my life, and would not hesitate to tell anyone that you will not go wrong by choosing her as a surgeon. She is the most loving, caring doctor, and being a nurse I have been around alot of them. I know this was a long story but just want to highlight how awesome, and caring Dr. Jones is. She is a 5 star in my eyes!!!!!!!
