Today, I came to the emergency room with a terrible throat infection. Though I knew what the problem was, the medication given before hand by another doctor was not strong enough. Not only did I have practically no wait in the emergency room, but the staff moved swiftly ad efficiently; while still being caring and compassionate. I was seen by Dr. Coleman, and my nurse was Susanne, I also had blood drawn by a nurse named Isobel. They gave me exactly what I needed and guided me every step of the way. They all did a wonderful job! I highly recommend this hospital for emergency care. The John Hopkins medical system is also very impressive and worth your while if you are seeking quality medical care. All around 5 stars! Hopefully I will not be back soon, but in case I do need immediate or serious medical care, this is where I will be going.
I was born in Sibley Hospital in 1942 -- at the old building in NE DC. Since then, I have watched Sibley grow to one of the finest hospitals in the entire DC area. It moved to its present location in 1963, and has continued to expand. Today it has a beautiful new state-of-the-art building, a large medical offices facility, and is adding yet another special building for treatment of those needing radiation, etc. for cancer.
The care given to those I know who have needed it is second to none.
The newborn-baby center is fabulous, with its loving and complete care for healthy babies and those with special needs.
I highly recommend Sibley Hospital for anyone of any age desiring the best care possible!
Fantastic ER service! Professional, courteous staff. Quick through triage and to see the docs (I saw four, one of whom drove in from home). Facilities are modern and quiet. Good privacy. Good food. Nurses were lovely people. One ER nurse even brought my wife dinner. I can't thank him and the staff enough for helping us. Thank you!
Always fabulous before. Great docs! Great staff! Calm, efficient, warm, reassuring. This last time was different. Took in child with possible concussion. Doc seemed remote and unconcerned, and she was unaware of history of two prior concussions and loss of consciousness in precipitating accident. She did not perform several of the usual concussion tests, only an MRI (possibly useful, not necessarily diagnostic).
Just had a great experience in the Sibley ER. Virtually no waiting time and had a procedure done by the on-call in-house surgeon. We were in and out within three hours.
