Every interaction I've had with the hospital and the staff has been excellent. I'm especially grateful to the people in the Financial Services office. They've been kind and empathic in understanding my situation and finding ways to help me keep my account paid. A+ to them!
What a Great Hospital! My Son had gastric surgery yesterday. The Doctors, the staff caring for him were all amazing, kind, very informative and attentive to his needs. What a great team, special shout out to his PACU nurse and the Baird 6 nurses!!! Thank you!
The friendliest staff here, the whole team of doctors working to get me on the best possible track of medicine... I am going home cofident that they fixed my ailment. The nursing staff, especially Samira, was especially nice and easy to talk to! The food is good... only complaint is not single rooms, but for the needs of many, it is a luxury I didn't mind losing, considering if there were not 2 to a room on half the floors, just that many people would be suffering still... nice cafe and courtyard, with beautiful bronze sculptures and large rock maple tress and benches.., very nice... this is the only hospital I will go to in VT as I live 50 miles away and have options for 2 that are closer but much prefer UVM MEDICAL CENTER. Thanks for the help!
Do not entrust this hospital with your life when it comes to tick related diseases. It doesn't help that the CDC, in which they depend, doesn't acknowledge chronic Lyme as a disease, which may explain why the doctors who treated me there, including their ID specialist suggest Lyme can be cured with a simple course of antibiotics at any stage of its development. FALSE. They also rely on a single dose preventive measure after a tick bite, which according to ILADS is not reliably efficacious. These doctors and institution also rely on the ELISA test which is very unreliable and often false negative. And these doctors rely on these protocol and false information to deny antibiotics even when presented cases of flu-like symptoms 1 week following the tick bite, and suggest that you either caught the flu or that the single dose of antibiotics may be the cause of your symptoms. This is a very Lyme illiterate and incompetent facility which lead me into late stage Lyme which may be irreversible, hence ruined my life. You need to see a "Lyme Literate" doctor such as Carol Gardner, Sojourns, a few others in the area and get your information from places like ILAD's, Global Lyme Alliance and stay the hell away from the CDC, UVMMC and most other clinics as they refer to the CDC and Big Med for their false, profit-driven information. Or don't listen to me and end up with Chronic Lyme a debilitating neurological, cardio and arthritic disease which destroys every organ in your body. Edit: In response to your reply: Thank you, if I make a full recovery I'll update my review.
I was abused during a stay at the ER and have found information in my medical record that is a false representation of what I told them during my stay. I had the most disturbing experience being kept in the ER against my will for 3 days, being given drugs I did not want or need, including Ketamine, which caused hallucinations. I was attack by 6 men for standing up from my bed, with no explanation. I've cancelled all upcoming appointments and will have nothing to do with this abusive organization going forward. Attempts to reconcile with the hospital have received the response that my treatment was in compliance with patient care standards. I would highly recommend everyone seek an alternative organization for their healthcare needs.
I should also mention that I am blind and was discriminated against. After reviewing my medical record online I see comments from doctors about how I didn't make eye contact... Seriously incompetent care that I am now being held responsible for paying thousands of dollars for...
