feedback about The University of Chicago Medical Center
Everyone here is so friendly! They greet me and take good care to get man best as possible. The doctors and residents are unbelievable. I highly recommend this for your medical care.
4/30/19 I've been here since 10am, only been seen by triage not a Doctor, came in due to my breathing problem, it really doesn't make since to be out here waiting this long, this is truly terrible. Money is is definitely wasted. We need better services. 🤔😐😣😔😫
The rooms are very big and spacious. The hospital is understaffed, every time a patient needs something you always have to wait a long time, or go and chase for a nurse. The hospital is a little dirty at times, your shoes make a sticking noise as you walk and they don't keep up the hall way bathrooms. I had to tell them two days in a row that the bathroom had no paper towels to dry your hands. The parking is $10 an hour, $6 an hour, with a validated ticket from the security guard. The cheapest way is if you buy it in advance at the parking lot office, it can cost as low as $6 for the length of your parking visit, up to 24 hours without additional fees. But you have to buy a minimum of 5 tickets for $30. They have two parking lots one on the north side of the building and another one on the Southside, both with a 2nd floor catwalk to access the hospital directly from the parking lots.
If you have to go to the hospital emergency room! Do yourself a favor and skip "The UChicago Adult Emergency Center" unless you want to die waiting to see a doctor. They are so unorganized, overcrowded, overwhelmed and the place is filthy. They make people wait 6 to 12 hours in those uncomfortable chairs. It can take up to 24 hours in the emergency room before you can get a room. There's people pleading for service and sometimes tempers flare, to the point that they have several police officers in a tiny room to prevent a brawl. I was shocked when I saw people waiting outside and 80-100 people in a waiting room designated for like 20-40. It's unacceptable, the university of Chicago Medical Center Hospital director should be ashamed of the conditions at their new Adult emergency room.
This hospital is very proficient within their knowledge of medicine, diagnoses, and treatments for each individual/patient. I have a few positive and negative experiences with U of C Hospital. The physicians and specialists are very insightful and intelligent but some doctors lack their ability to understand and properly communicate with their patients. Some really lack the vital component of patient and physician and leans more towards just the “physician case closed” deal. This often leads the patients to feel perplexed, unhappy and even worse; ultimately dismissed/ignored. Overall, the faculty members, customer supports, and medical team members are great. No doubt. I do hope that physicians can develop a better way to communicate with their clients with better patience and within a more of humane approach. Nonetheless, U of C is still outstanding and a great facility.
I gave U of C one star because that’s what it took for me to post a review.
Danielle is a Nurse that works in the E.R. Mental Health Department and Her treatment was unbelievable. She was evil! She was unprofessional and just down right rude. I can’t believe administration tolerates her behavior toward a patient. Unbelievable!!! I thought she was the patient.
She literally slammed the door in my face, she was belligerent on so many levels. I just can’t wrap my head around her being employed at a hospital which such a beautiful reputation.
The University of Chicago has really changed in the last decade. So sad, a Million dollar hospital with that level of Nurses. Wow
