Do not go here! None of the good doctors work weekends here. My father was misdiagnosed and treated with drugs that killed him. He was only in his 50's. They also refused to get him a cpap machine that he needed for sleeping. He went in on a Friday evening and he passed on Monday morning. If you truly love your family you will make the drive to Sarasota memorial. I will forever regret going to this terrible place.
Not sure where some of these reviewers are talking about, but we have had the best experience possible out of a bad situation. I have used 4 hospitals in the Sarasota/Bradenton area over the past 20 years and this is the best so far. Courteous, knowledgeable, understanding staff. Newer hospital, very clean and well cared for. Hope I never need them again but would not hesitate to go back
Just an awful experience. Staff was very rude. Not a smile to be found. Started with the girl at the front desk and continued with the nurse who brought my husband to a room. Then billing decided our insurance was inactive and it’s not. We went to Sarasota Memorial and were greeted with a smile and total professionalism. Think twice about going to Lakewood ranch.
Worst experience ever! Walked in ER at 11PM, young lady got me signed in and then got my blood pressure taken and was taken to a room in the back by the Charge Nurse (male) didn't get his name... Sat in the room for 45 minutes before the lady came back to get my insurance information and was told by her that they had told her I was in a different room? At 1AM I walked up to the desk, found the lady who had taken my insurance information and asked her to cut my wrist band off because I was leaving! There were 3 nurses standing at the desk talking, the first lady asked where the Charge Nurse was, he was in the office.. (the one who had taken me to the room) I was asked by him if I had been seen by a Dr.. I said " I have not been seen by anyone since this person took my insurance information" The Charge Nurse got real crappy with me and said " I didn't ask that, I asked if you had been seen by the Dr" I said No... He then said "well you can just leave then". Well, guess what... I left! I will NOT return to this poorly run hospital again! Not to mention the room I was taken to, the paper on the exam chair had not even been changed and the trash can was over flowing with garbage.
2/13/2018 I had chest pain so my husband drove me to the LWR emergency room. I was greeted and taken to a bed immediately. I was met by 2 nurses who took no time getting me settled and on heart monitors. The ER doctor was at my bedside in less than 5 minutes. After all the test were run and xrays read they decided to admit me. I was immediately taken to a room (private thank goodness) where I was greeted by 2 nurses and Dr. Saad. They were fast, efficient, professional and funny. They kept me laughing which put me at ease and made this horrific incident less scary. I was monitored and kept under surveillance and met within hours my wonderful new Heart Doctor Dr. Okurhara. I was in trouble I had 99% blockage in my main heart valve and had to have a stint put in which saved my life. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this hospital and they care that was given to myself and my husband. A few nurses that need a shout out Sammy, Danny, Lisa and Miriam. You all rock! Did I mention they have room service that calls your room if they have not heard from you, such a nice touch. Great hospital!
