Amazing ER Doctors and nurses! Really take your case serious and provide the best care! The hospital is clean and the food is actually amazing! Can’t say enough good things about the staff!
Was just taken there yesterday. Apparently I passed out and someone called the ambulance too come get me. I don't remember much, but I do remember being in the hospital bed with the financial lady continuously asking me how I want to pay and if I had insurance. And yes I did have the money and insurance. I just found this very unprofessional and what seemed to me a lack of human concern. I just have regained conscious and I was being bombarded on how I wanted to pay. I figured this could at least waited until I was discharged, and don't get me started on the doc. He just seemed to take my gfs advice on what was wrong with me and ran a couple of tests. Once they all came back negative he sent me on my way...... Is this a good hospital, I'm sure it is. I just didn't have the best luck there and I hope they gain some compassion towards there fellow man..... Also good bed side manor never hurt either.
Great medical service and expert knowledge and bedside manner. Parking can be a pain it's a very crowded area so that can be expected. It is well worth it did the expert care and security you get from knowing you are in one the nation's top hospitals. UAB hospital will give any patient the ultimate peace of mind when in a time of medical need.
I recently had an abdominal hysterectomy and my experience was anything but good. I'm not sure what I expected but I was basically put in a room and left there. I thought someone would be there to help me get out of bed and to start walking. I was basically told u have to get out of bed and sit for eight hours in a chair and do five laps around the nurses station. I tried I really did but I had alot of difficulty on my own. I was in so much pain I was unable to eat when my doctor came in the next day I wanted to go home bcos I was just left in this room. When he saw I hadn't eaten he said I would have to eat in order to go home. So despite being in terrible pain and having to wait hours just to get Tylenol I ate as much as I could. When it was time for me to go my husband couldn't walk up and get me I had to wait on someone to "transport" me. The nurse told me 15 to 20 mins so I let my husband know. He waited downstairs for well over an hour and when I asked the nurse to check on my transport she rolled her freaking eyes at me and turned to another nurse and said I told her it could be over an hour. Really I just had surgery lady like less than 24 hours ago. The first night when I got home I thought I would die. The food I had been made to eat under duress made me horribly sick. Oh did I forget to mention they went ahead with my surgery while I was sick with a chest cold? Well that only made my recovery harder seeing as I had a foot long incision in my stomach and was hacking horribly. Three days home I called my doctor bcos I was still in extreme pain to refill my pain medicine when he informed me to take Tylenol. I'm sorry I understand we have a drug problem in this country but three days after surgery really? I suffered for the next week barely able to leave my bed. During this time they have a nurse recording calling you to ask you questions like me I want to go through that? So impersonal I would never go to this hospital again. They need to connect more with their patient's and their needs instead of reading from a script.
Thank you Dr Perry, Dr Maddox and team for everything you are doing for my Dad. I cannot express enough gratitude to these doctors and nurses. God bless you all
