MedStar Georgetown University Hospital is a not-for-profit, acute-care teaching and research hospital with 609 beds located in Northwest Washington, D.C. 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.
First, we have always had good luck with the pediatrics at Georgetown. However, my young daughter needs a test, and the department no longer takes walk ins (they did two years ago). We were turned away... more and given a reservation line to call. 3+ weeks wait, but this is urgent. Of course, a MEDSTAR doctor could get us in faster. I know for a fact our doctor is in their system, just not a MEDSTAR employee. Isn't this illegal? If not, it should be.
Physicians can be either great or just average. Cone prepared with questions , do your background research and demand full explanation. I cannot understand why they retain a sullen receptionist on the... more main floor who is annoyed to give directions. They could learn from Sibley and use volunteers to cheer up the patient experience.
Wow, i've had a lot of fun being transferred from person to person over the phone, and spending hours of my life on hold. Also, not having access to my child's records despite mailing AND faxing in a... more request.... as well as having them not work with any other doctor who see's my child... This place is terrible, never had such a hard time dealing with a hospital in my life. 1 star is being generous (only because i had to)
