I had been seeing Dr. Slack at GBMC who is a lung specialist. My first appointment with him was great and he was very nice. I had an appointment last Friday at 10am. Granted I got there 10 minutes late but I was taken back in. Got my blood pressure, weight, etc taken. I had also given a copay to go in. After 25 minutes I was told that since I was “10 minutes late” that the doctor is no longer available and can’t see me anymore. I’m shocked at the lack of professionalism and miscommunication. I had to wait an additional 20 minutes for them to refund me for the copay as well. It’s frustating to make the commute there from Annapolis and be treated as if I’m not valuable at all.
I had an emergency procedure done here a few years ago. The first nurses when I came in and the doctor that performed the procedure were very pleasant but when it came time for the actual procedure, there was one nurse I remember that was very rude. I mean, it was my first time being admitted to a hospital for anything and my first time getting surgery so of course I was scared out of my mind. It was almost this as if this lady expected me to know already what she want me to do. I wish I remembered her name cause I would have reported her nasty attitude.
Melissa BSN, RN is the definition of phenomenal. She is, for sure, the woman of the night and deserves some recognition. When I first walked in here, gasping for breath and unable to catch it, I was honestly ready to leave. The moment the staff found out I suffered from a mental disability--even on the most minor of scales--, it became everyone's sole focus, and seemed to almost dictate their reactions and treatment. I felt singled-out and like every diagnosis from there on out would come right back around to my mental illness. However, it didn't touch her. She made sure that I wasn't treated any differently, and even stayed in the room with me for as long as possible in between her treks to retrieve supplies, ensuring that I didn't experience any more discomforts, and acting as my liaison of sorts. She reassured me that she, herself, was a mental illness advocate, and that she would never let me be treated any differently because of my prior diagnoses. She ended up being this night's saving-grace, turning a stressful and disconcerting situation into one of ease and reassurance. If I could solely rate employees, she would, for sure, receive a five-star rating, no question about it. She is the reason I'm leaving this hospital with the treatment I needed, and I honestly could probably never thank her enough.
Wonderful. I received excellent care from doctors, nurses and all of the technicians. They gave me real TLC and treated me to a truly first rate experience. Forever grateful to all who took care of me @ GBMC.
The hospital is large but easy to navigate. The staff is awesome and the wait for care is not long if you have an appointment. I had three procedures there and the nurse's were beyond patient and kind....I am an awful patient coming out of anesthesia. GBMC also give seminars on various health topics. These spring and fall classes are available to the public. I highly recommend this hospital for your family health care.
