I don't usually take the time to leave a review but this time I feel that it is really important that I do. Some of the reviews I read on here frightened me because I was having surgery at Memorial Hospital on 4/13. I thought it was a good idea to check out the reviews since I usually have procedures in Tampa done at Tampa General. There were bad reviews left by a few...mostly about the staff being unfriendly or unprofessional.
My guard was up from the moment I walked in the door that early morning for an 8:30 surgery. From the very 1st person that checked me in... to the nurse that made sure I got to the car safely, this was by far an incredibly caring and thoughtful medical staff. They even honored my request (without question) to have my IV in my arm and not my hand. Anyone that says this medical staff is unprofessional, uncaring, or any other negative feedback is not speaking from an unbiased opinion. To the medical personnel that took care of me: you have my personal "Thank you" for making a scary procedure as pleasant as possible. Thank you for putting my mind at ease and answering all of my questions. and thank you for being so caring and thoughtful. Two weeks post-op and I'm doing great! :-)
