feedback about Stormont-Vail Healthcare
This was the worst medical experience I have ever had. The only reason I gave 1 star was because they initially got me in a room fast. I was misdiagnosed and the doctor literally was in the room for 2 minutes. He didn’t get a history and barely examined me as I was crying my eyes out and asking for help. I told the doctor I’ve never been in so much pain so he just said he would give me a prescription for Valium and send me on my way. I left upset and still in pain. I called my primary and told them what happened. They got me in immediately and I learned what was wrong and got the help I desperately needed. I will never return to this hospital again!
This place is considered the fifth wonder of Topeka, Kansas. I have been here for multiple charitable and honorary events.. great place to go!
Do not go to this hospital, this is the worst hospital in the entire state of Kansas. They will not help you. If you can, seek treatment in Kansas City. Avoid this place at all costs if you value your life.
I am not sure how to put this into words representative of the lasting emotional trauma they caused me, my girlfriend, and anyone else who received the same treatment; but I will do my best in articulating a proper review for this soulless place.
Stormont Vail is yet another culprit in the ongoing "caesarean section epidemic" attempting to push them on anyone they can, regardless of a clean bill of health each time they run tests. If your tests do not meet the average with pinpoint accuracy, they will shame you into receiving a c-section.
I am sad to say that shaming is the perfect descriptor for what they do to someone who questions why they are demanding you get a c-section. If the shaming does not work, well then they turn to directly strong arming you. They will berate you, and put you in such an uncomfortable position that you will suffer emotional distress. Some of the doctors will even overstep their bounds and directly threaten you if you bring facts contrary to their beliefs. Do not let them fool you.
If every one of your health tests are borderline average, do not let them deceive you. My son was scheduled to be born a week after the c-section they coerced my girlfriend to get. He was born unable to take in the appropriate amount of oxygen, and for exactly a week I watched him suffer.
I say my son suffered for a week, and the key point here is that was when his natural birth was meant to be, a week after the scheduled c-section. Pure coincidence he left the NICU on his scheduled natural birth date? I'll leave that to the scientists who know better than shyster doctors. I can only present the data I have at hand.
Prospective families, do not under any circumstance let them sway you. Unless they say specifically that your case is imminently life threatening (they may do that anyways, hence why I say overstepping their bounds), do not give in to the duress.
In closing: The nursing staff is overworked and undervalued. Their ability to be cordial is limited by this. Nonetheless most of them were absolutely terrible at their jobs, and had atrocious bedside manner; often they would forget about you and become irate at even the slightest reminder. Communication between the multiple wards is also nearly nonexistent, leaving you to run middleman for them.
Husband had to wait two hours to see doctor. Took off work,to be told there nothing to worry about . Want to know why they could not tell him over the phone.
