My family of four has used Dartmouth Hitchcock as our "go-to" medical support for 20 years! Try comparing that to any review of a single experience. This is an amazing institution that has provided many people we know with top-level care. The staff is professional, brilliant and compassionate. Congratulations to all of you who make DHMC work so well!
wish I could give a zero. my doctors in India told me the first day the correct treatment and the doctors at Hitchcock delayed my treatment, complicated the procedure.
I had to visit another surgeon in the US to rectify my treatment. He mentioned too that the treatment at DHMC was incorrect. The DHMC doctors are either careless/inexperienced or greedy to delay the treatment.
It was not just one doctor but the entire team of ortho doctors at DHMC who couldnt or wouldnt tell me the correct action needed...
Basically, India, a third world country, has much better medical facilities, more experienced doctors, and more efficient processes than DHMC.
Went in the other night having a crippling anxiety attack and the doc tells me its just back pain and sends me home. I was not there for drugs and i certainly was not impressed. Next time I will let myself die.
I was supposed to see a doctor in Endocrinology but for years I was would only see a nurse practitioner...she was very nice but I felt I didn’t have enough time to discuss different options and I was pushed to yet another medication....so I figured I’ll change to my family physician and a diabetes educator. I am not the typical diabetic, I am not overweight, so I was tested to see if I am type 1 and not type 2 which test came negative. My doctor’s concern was that I might have some kind of resistance to insulin, so he referred me to Dartmouth and notified them of his concern.
At my visit they completely ignored my questions and concern about the reason of my visit and suggested I take on one more injectable medication and follow up with them from now on.
When I saw the doctor’s notes I was very upset that they didn’t even mention the reason of my visit....
Thanks Dartmouth for pushing for more medication and looking after the pharmaceutical companies instead of more testing and addressing the patient’s concerns....
Wonderful ER staff and children's unit! My child felt better because of these people!
