Remote Adjusting Services
From a person who distrusts the medical system due to multiple poor experiences - the Mayo Clinic is surprisingly impressive. Our 78 year old mother was flown in from Mankato to their ICU where she was monitored around the clock due to a life-threatening ailment. She was here for four days, then moved down a floor where she remained for several more days. The rotating teams of doctors explained what was happening, changed prescriptions based upon her bodies changing needs, and answered questions in a manner that we could understand without a medical degree. The rotating teams of nurses were AMAZING!!! While remaining professional, each of them provided our mother with a level of care as if she were someone that they cared for personally. I hope I never have a need for a hospital, but if I do, this is the only place I would trust.
Not up to the quality of the Mayo Clinic doctors. The place itself looks okay but there are a lot of double rooms (why not make them all singles???), the nursing staff makes a lot of mistakes (failing to give meds, not noticing when an IV is dry) or often will go many hours not checking on you. Social worker was a jerk. Many of the people who came in to help with rehab or PT or even post-surgery care were students, not actual professionals. Felt I could have gotten better care back home. And the parking at the hospital is horrible--you'll walk a long way. Come to Mayo only for the high-quality surgeons, not the hospital.
I had a nissen Fundoplication wrap back in 2003 and have had nothing but intense problems for the last 2 years. In the last 6 months i had to have EGD's done every week. The local Topeka hospitals couldnt help me and transferred me to Saint Marys Mayo Clinic February 13, 2018. February 14 2018, i had the most awesome team of GI drs walk into my hospital room and announce everything they was going to do to me. They did the procedure and once again i am able to eat after being unable to eat for a long time or drink anything for almost a week. I was weak and in alot of pain. I was very sick from being mal nourished. I am blessed to have met the most amazing group of GI drs. My esophagus was closed and they opened it up and i am now able to eat and drink anything i want. I DO HAVE TO BE CAREFUL. Thank you so much GI Team! You have all touched my life and i am totally amazed and blessed. You all saved my life. May God bless you all as you take care of your next patient and touch their lives like you touched mine! Sincerely, Lori Anne Davis, Topeka, KS.
My mom has been here for two weeks, in three different rooms and with numerous different teams of doctors, nurses and staff. Each person we worked with was kind, compassionate to mom (elderly) and tested her with dignity and respect. They also just happened to provide her with top-notch care. Driving two hours to get here is nothing to get this level of service, especially when people come from all over the world.
The doctors from Mayo Clinic are always amazing but St. Mary's was a real disappointment. Many rude uncaring employees. I'm used to Mercy in Des Moines and St.Mary's could learn a lot from them.
