feedback about St Joseph Hospital
I had been having severe pain in my stomach for a few days, I was pretty much bedridden, and I called my doctor to make an appointment, she told me to go to the hospital, so I went to St. Joseph because it was the closest hospital to my house. Once I was checked into the emergency room, the doctor ran a whole bunch of tests. She could not figure out what was wrong. I kept telling her that the pain was moving around from my abdomen, to my side, and to my lower back, she became so frustrated with me, the tone of her voice was so awful, she became verbally hostile with me and then she had the audacity to ask me if I had mental problems. This doctor was completely unprofessional and has no business in a hospital or anywhere else for that matter!!
UPDATE *** I returned to this hospital, for the same pain issues. I was so sick, I could barely walk. At first the doctor ran all of the same tests the previous Dr ran, still couldnt find anything..he ran more tests and found an ovarian cyst. I would really love to thank the first Dr. for misdiagnosing me, telling me I'm crazy, and pretty much doubling my hospital bill, since we had to run many of the same tests twice, we could have figured this out during the first visit if she had taken me seriously. I really hope this doctor doesnt end up in a lawsuit!!
Horrible nurses, most had an attitude. Only 3 of them were nice to me. The others were so rough with my body after having my baby, I was in pain and I felt bruised from my stomach from how rough she was pressing on it, I literally felt her finger nails and I had 3 nurses trying to insert the catheter after one of the nurses failed TWICE, she kept trying to force it in, I cried so bad. The pain was terrible! On top of that she blamed me for not being able to pee, she pissed me off. I wish I would’ve delivered my baby at a different hospital :( but now I know not to go back there and I tell all my friends not to go there. I HATED being there, I literally left the day after I had my baby. I couldn’t stand that one nurse.
My daughter had outpatient surgery at St Joseph’s. We had a great experience from beginning to end. The registration was professional, quick and easy. The entire visit, the staff were so attentive, helpful and reassuring. During the surgery, I had 3 updates while I was in the waiting room on how the surgery was progressing. After surgery, the anesthesia doctor and CRNA both came separately twice to talk to me. Post-op we had the same level of attention and care. Before we left, the nurse took the time to get a map and highlight the route from the parking garage to the valet area where I was to pick up my daughter to make sure I did not get confused with all of the one way streets downtown. Such a great experience! Thank you St. Joseph’s!
St Joseph is the worst. I called trying to locate my brother who was taken by ambulance to the hospital. I had to call twice before anyone answered the phone. The gentlemen was able to confirm he was there and transferred me over triage to get more information but after 20 rings I finally hung up. I have another brother who is currently at LBJ hospital and you would think because it is a county hospital it would be the worst but it is a very clean hospital and everyone there is very helpful.
I was born here, as were my siblings and a cousin in 2001. I am going through them to help my cousin prepare for her C-section. They are being extremely helpful.
