I would like to communicate the events of my most recent visit to UWMC Emergency Department on 6/18/2018.
I arrived around 1300 and was greeted professionally by the admissions staff. I was quickly called back to triage where I was met with a portable EKG machine, vitals were taken and I was promptly moved to a room, an IV administered, and vitals were being monitored. Within a matter of a few moments I was taken for chest x-rays and shortly thereafter a CT scan. While waiting for results, blood and urine collections were sent for analysis.
When all results came back no one was able to make a clear diagnosis, the main concern I had was ruling out any cardiovascular issues and a repeat PE.
All the staff I encountered were professional, courteous, caring and concerned throughout my 7/hr stay. They were very apologetic for the duration I was in and that they could not provide a diagnosis for the issues I was experiencing, I explained that I came to rule out two issues and they confirmed that and I was satisfied with the outcome.
I wanted to take the time to write this review and provide feedback, I know most people in a desperate situation are not always understanding, appreciative, and cooperative.
I'm glad to be a customer of UW Medicine and SCCA.
