Founded in the Jesuit principle of cura personalis—caring... more for the whole person—MedStar Georgetown is committed to offering a variety of innovative diagnostic and treatment options within a trusting and compassionate environment.
One of the worse hospital I ever experienced. I arrived in this hospital in pain, a level 10. The documents you are ask to are designed to shave the hospital only, not you. Your rights will be violated... more in more ways than one.
My doctor decided to share my personal medical information without my permission. My doctor claim I was sleeping and he didn't want to wake me. This hospital will make you feel unimportant. What was shared I didn't get a chance to answer or sign a constant for.
Generally, the staff are kind and willing to help - many will stop you in the hallways to offer directions if you look lost.
The doctors and their work are great.
Sadly, just about everything... more else is lacking. Frequently, patients wait in recovery rooms all day and sometimes do not end up getting an actual room. The age of the buildings and lack of efficiency or drive to make the patient experience good is what hurts. If you ever have the option of where to have surgery, you will almost definitely be more comfortable somewhere else.
I love my doctors at MedStar Georgetown, but trying to get a call back is almost impossible. I am thinking of changing doctors because of this. Also their billing system is horrible. Each bill has a... more different account number. I pay by my checking accounts bill pay and there are at least 15 different account numbers in there. They need to shape up
