When you have a sick child their pediatric ER is amazing. I won't take my baby anywhere else in the state. I had 3 babies with asthma we used to almost literally live there. Even the cafeteria food tastes good. The nurses are what make this hospital. They are dedicated to keeping the kids comfortable and keep their minds off their pain and illnesses. There is a doctor we call Dr. A (can't pronounce it not gonna murder the spelling) I swear he treats these kids like they are his family and that's why we love and will go nowhere else the staff from medical to housekeeping act like family.
Great staff and treated really well. Went above and beyond to make the stay as good as possible given our reasons for being there. Excellent doctors.
After more interns that could be counted (who knows which one was the actual Dr.), and every one giving different answers, the are sending my Dad home after an overnight observation. He was transferred there by ambulance for an abdominal aneurysm. Their reasoning is out of a possible' 4', he is considered a '2'. Unbelievable that internal bleeding is no concern to them, and they are basically sending him home and risking a serious issue to occur at any time. Staff was cordial, but I wouldn't recommend going here unless you are ok with receiving sub-par health services!
The ER and nurses were awesome. They get 5 stars. Once admitted, I was listened to and made to feel like family. Then today I was discharged. After less than 48 hours, I was treated like family that overstayed their welcome. The issue I was admitted for was not resolved: I was still in a great deal of pain and unable to tolerate a liquid diet. I felt like I was being kicked out of my sick bed and rushed home with medications to treat the symptoms and not the actual issue. I was told I was welcome to return to the emergency room if I still felt bad. I left sobbing and feeling like less than a human. I am thankful for the nurses and one of the Drs who initially thought it unwise for me to return home in this state. I will be filing a complaint.
Can’t speak for all of UMMC’s care but Geneticist Dr Joseph Maher is one of the smartest doctors I have ever seen (I’ve seen a lot). It was difficult to get in to see him initially but he followed up and saw me through testing, which he and his office assisted in getting covered by insurance. Explained everything in detail including considerations in regards to life insurance (genetic implications). He is caring, thorough, top-notch and truly brilliant.
