Do not feel safe here. Entire building aand parking garages don't look very up to date and maintained. Very sketchy. Elevators are very old and shakey. They don't follow protocols here. Never going back... more here again.
A big THANK YOU to Kim McCormick (MRI Dept.) for her patience and understanding with scheduling an MRI I need to have done. She was quick at resolving the issue for me an did a a great good job at comforting... more my nerves by acknowledging my concerns and providing comfort...I really appreciate it! Thanks to Britney as well!
My wife's surgery went well but after surgery it took 8 hours for her to be assigned a room where our family could visit and she could have some peace and quiet to rest. The surgery was scheduled a month... more in advance so there was ample time for Georgetown to be prepared for her. In addition, despite being in an open bay room, they were slow to provide water, ice chips or an additional blanket. This room was loud and bright and my wife did not get more than a few moments rest at a time. Yep. For 8 hours after surgery my wife was unable to sleep or even rest. When I inquired about the status of my wife's recovery room I was told that they were all booked and we'd have to just wait. I explained that we had booked the surgery a month ago and was told that they always overbook patients with a condescending tone. This reminded me of my Army days were the military hospital always acted as if it were doing you a favor. I do not recommend this hospital. They are not focused on patient care and their organizational skills are poor. The only thing they did quickly and professionally was take my payment. I think that fact more than anything let's you know what they care about.
