feedback about Sentara Leigh Hospital
I've been in this hospital and used the labs, emergency room and had several nights stay. I've had a cataract surgery on each eye. My aunt is there now. While every person is not an Einstein, every aspect of this hospital is well above average and many aspects are excellent. It's not reasonable to expect a better facility and care from a public accessible hospital.
Just had my first surgery here today, and my experience was great! I was super nervous being that it was my first time getting surgery or being under anesthesia, but the nurses made me feel right at home. I especially loved
the fact they were sensitive around my fear of needles, when I had to get my iv. The nurses were awesome, and the anesthesiologist made me feel so comfortable and confident and really eased my nerves. They did everything they told me they were going to do and explained absolutely everything to me. Loved the experience and if I had to have surgery again, I would definitely do it here. ( side note: the only con I had was their front desk girl was a little stuffy and not very personable for someone who is the first impression of the hospital, but that was absolutely my only criticism, everyone else was great! Love this place! )
If I could rate zero I would. Bedside manner is non-existent, doctor Shuck lacks compassion, and is not knowledgeable. My wife arrived via ambulance on 10/2 with chest pain, shortness of breath and arm pain. An EKG dismissed possible heart attack. The nurses who where responsible for taking blood samples and inserting an IV caused more pain to my wife as they were not able to find the vein to insert needle. The 2 nurses were laughing and joking about something that happened earlier in the day. After about an hour we met Dr. Suck, who ordered a chest x-ray, and blood draw for labs. We sat for 5 hours waiting for the doctor to come back. When he came back he said that we had nothing to worry about since EKG rules out heart attack and that we should follow up with our primary care doctor. When we asked questions he seemed bothered and made us feel like we were wasting his time wanting to know what he knew, which was nothing at all. He failed to discuss his thoughts on the X-ray. So we left there not knowing why my wife was in severe pain. We read our discharge papers and we noticed that there was a page that suggested my wife may be suffering from a pleural effusion, a condition that can be life threatening. Now I won't say that Sentara Leigh is filled with incompetent doctors, but they do have a night staff that is. No compassion, unprofessional, rude, and inexperienced. If you have to go to Sentara Leigh hospital on Kempsville road in Virginia Beach, pray you don't get Dr. Suck. If you do, ask for another doctor, his name fits him, along with the rest of his staff.
Such a great staff. We're very friendly and great at communicating. Very quick in and out visit. Always a pleasure going here even on an emergency visit. Got stitches done here last week n just taking out. Thank you Johnathan & lady's who's name I can't remember rite now.. emergency did a great job. A+ keep up the great work
Very smart and professional service. Had to get surgery here and it went great. Doctors are straight to the point and the nurses are very helpful.
