Again, this is our 6th time at the ER Georgetown Hospital We have Aetna insurance, we leave in Chevy Chase, my daughter has Chronic Disease UC and Pancreatitis. We spent 12 hours last time June 28 at... more the ER before being hospitalized, She left the hospital last week on 30th June treatment Pancreatitis at the 3rd floor they were very good nurses and Drs. But Dr Charabaty her GI never came to see her just the fellows who were very nice because they were different Fellows last time experience. My daughter had allergy for Lialda gave pancreatitis for the second time they never gave a new medication for UC. She had allergies for Humira rash all over her body, they never gave another medication and the GI appt was a week 1/2 away. My daughter came today bc she is having flareup and vomiting again without any medication for UC we called on call Dr. On Tuesday they never returned our call it was Dr Jenis. Again we called on Wednesday I mentioned that they Dr never called us back. She said the Dr on call would call this time for sure. He called he talked to my Daughter said he was going to consult with Dr Charabaty to give another medication but he never called back. My daughter got worse vomiting and pain in her belly and diahrrea she is very dehydrated because she is vomiting since yesterday. I will continue make review each time I come here. It is ashamed a hospital like that having such bad management in the ER. We are here for 2 hrs waiting to get inside to see a DR. I will update the time when Drs will see her.
I just had laparoscopic hernia repair at Sibley's Ambulatory Surgery Center. I cannot fully express how amazing the experience was from the first intake person, Brenda, to the final discharge nurse, Colleen.... more Throughout the process, EVERY person I dealt with including pre-op nurse, Niki, anesthesiologist, Dr. Kekolor, nurse anesthetist, Monica, surgeon assistant, Sam, OR nurses, Ethel and Paula, OR scrub, Christina, and recovery nurse, Stephanie, could not have been more professional, reassuring, competent, and totally human. I'm sure that surgical outcome is markedly improved when the patient is treated in this caring and calming way before going into the OR.
The staff at the Center clearly care about their patients, and seem to genuinely like each other which makes the atmosphere relaxed and caring. They work together very well, and, for example, several times during my time there, another staff member would pop in and ask if the person attending to me needed any help. I was rolled into the OR at 7:30 AM and was home at 10:00 AM.
Lastly, my surgeon, Dr. Martin Paul, was perfect from my first meeting to his post-op explanation of how the surgery went. Every other doctor and medical staff in other settings said, when I told them Dr. Paul was my surgeon, "He's the one I would use [and in one case, "did use"] if I had to have hernia repair.
There is nothing I can think of that would improve on my experience and I give my heartfelt thanks to each member of my team.
Absolutely blown away by the treatment I received at Sibley this week. Every single nurse, doctor, and admin was kind, attentive, and made me feel like the most important person in the room. Any future... more surgery or hospital treatment I need I hope to have at Sibley. Cannot thank the healthcare professionals there enough and am so grateful my first surgery was with them.
