I had really great nurses here for my surgery. Everyone was very friendly including the volunteers. They answered my questions. My only negative was that the anesthesiologist did not have very good bedside... more manner.
SAVE YOURSELF AND GO TO ELMHURST MEMORIAL!!
Issues:A cocky doctor in the physician's offices and lengthy lab DROP OFF procedures.
The first bad experience I had here was with a cocky... more OBGYN during my annual appointment. My birth control had failed which I didn't know at the time. I did express my concern about just missing my last cycle to the nurse first. She took a urine sample. The doctor came said everything was a ok even after I told him I had never not had a cycle unless I was pregnant and the nurse took a urine sample for me. He said I didnt know my body and refused to check the results while I was there. BEHOLD I left the facility and get a call in the car 5 minutes later from a nurse. "Your pregnancy test was positive."....
Second confusing/bad experience is with the lab! I got some type of bug on vacation and had been sick for 3 weeks and couldnt handle it anymore. I went into the ER here. I couldn't use it so they sent me home with a kit which I could only have collected within 2hrs and only could bring it back to the lab between 6am-7pm. I was given the order to put with the collection cups. The next day comes. I ride over thinking it would be a simple drop off process. SURPRISE AGAIN.
Here is a play by play:
Physician's Office Entrance-->wait-->Registration-->wait-->Billing desk to collect more information-->wait-->Lab-->wait-->Sign in AGAIN-->Drop off sample-->Leave
Remember, whatever sample you are carrying stays with you until you drop it off. :)
Doubt I'll be visiting this place again.
I took my wife to Good Samaritan Hospital to take care of my pregnancy. But I really don't understand their Doctors, their Management, Doctors are just doing everything whether it is needed are not and... more you are not allow ask questions and Management are Oppss..every bills will comes with different account numbers and you will get only 30 to 45 days to pay the bills. Why different account numbers ?? you can not set monthly payment.. this is really pain.. they don't believe their customer ... I am not impressed at all with their service. My all insurance deductible gone in just 20 days..still 4 more months remaining..
