feedback about Northside Hospital Forsyth
This Hospital was so nice and clean!
I was so pleased and impressed with this staff of nurses and assistants they left no stone unturned each nurse walked up to me and introduced themselves before they gave assistance.
I had outpatient Total knee replacement surgery and it was a breeze!
There are not enough stars in the sky to rate this Hospital. My husband had his neck surgery here, and let me tell you, his family could not be by his side, but you best know, they had the right person caring for him from start to finish. We were met with a friendly staff of professionals who took excellent care of not just my husband, myself included.
I did not leave his side through the whole surgery, I was given a pager and received updates during his surgery. After which, the staff made sure he was given A+++ attention so as not to be uncomfortable. I was give an area in his recovery room so to be able to stay close. I must say, Northside Hospital Forsyth should be given the TOP star for MOST UP MOST STAFF & true caring professionals.

I waited 7 HOURS to be seen. Only 4 people total were waiting. They also were waiting for hours, but I noticed people with minor issues and people who had gotten there much later than me were getting seen, so I asked what the hold up was. They were waiting for my medical records so I wouldn’t have to resubmit data. They didn’t think to tell me that or ask if I’d be willing to resubmit data, while I was vomiting and in terrible pain. I told them I’ll resubmit my info because I was very sick. Finally I was taken back. Everyone downstairs and the nurses were all great. The other main issue was with the doctors. Not only was there a lot of miscommunication between them, but every time I talked with the doctors we’d have an established plan, then the nurses would come back and say the doctors either ordered or changed something we never discussed. This happened every single day. I was constantly in pain, and symptoms never improving. They ordered tests I clearly couldn’t do and they would’ve known had they discussed it with me prior to ordering it. They also kept trying to force medications on me that I couldn’t take and that were clearly listed on my allergy list. Clearly they never looked at my allergy list because they’d come in daily with medications that were on the list. The last straw was when the doctor changed a medication to one that was CLEARLY listed on my allergy list, and said he wasn’t going to change it. I ordered to be AMA because I truly believed this hospital was going to either kill me or do permanent damage to my body. The charge nurse came in and asked why I was going AMA, I told her and she shrugged and said “sorry@ and left. I went to a different hospital. They were able to identify the issue IMMEDIATELY without trying to run excessive tests or tests I clearly couldn’t do due to my symptoms. When I told the doctors at the other hospital what tests they were trying to run and their course of action, they were very bothered and confused as to why they were running those types of tests/medications. Now I’m doing a lot better and without excessive testing or forced medications. I wouldn’t suggest this hospital to my worst enemy. I’ll be filing a full complaint and possible lawsuit against this hospital. Even one of their 5 star ratings is just about food. This hospital is terrible.
I just returned from Northside Forsyth Hospital after gall bladder surgery. This is probably the best hospital experience I’ve ever had.I arrived at 5:30 am. Everyone and I mean everyone was so kind, caring,happy to help me, put me at ease, make me comfortable. These people were extremely professional while still showing interest in my care and well being. Smiles, they were smiling at 5:30 am and seemed HAPPY doing their job. I cannot say enough good things about this hospital. I was seen at their ER 10 days ago at 2:30-3 am for a gall bladder attack. I saw the same attitude at the ER as in the surgical unit. Also, everything was sparkling clean in the whole hospital, no dust anywhere, furniture, lights window chills. No crud in the corners of the room where someone did’nt bother to clean .no nasty carpet. For those who cannot give this hospital five stars, go to another hospital and experience that care. I’ve had several surgeries regarding my pacemaker/defibrillator over the past 4 years.I thought those hospitals and staff were really good, including Vanderbilt (now my no. Two rated) in Nashville TN. NOTHING COMPARES TO THIS PLACE.
The hospital staff is hit or miss. Just about all of the labor and delivery nurses are very kind and supportive, but the administration is absolutely horrible. The front desk staff upon check-in is rude and very snappy (a really terrible start to our visit when going into labor). The customer service employees are the worst (that is, if you can get through to talk to them after the message prompts and "we're not available right now" recordings). They don't all follow the same guidelines for allowing spouses to discuss the medical records. Some require just the bill number to talk about the billing, while others won't even discuss the bill unless it's the patient on the phone. During each of our multiple phone calls, all have been very rude and have cut us off mid-sentence to interrupt what we're saying. Be prepared to be billed multiple times throughout the year for the same visit, be sent to collections for the bills even though it is recorded in their system as in process of being resolved, and the frustrating process of talking to employees who refuse to help. We will never again visit Northside Forsyth due to their lack of respect and constant billing frustration. With our expanding family, we plan to deliver at Emory Johns Creek to receive the care and straightforward help we deserve.
