A speedy visit for my 7 year olds ankle sprain. They didn't make me feel like I was an over reacting parent (even though I may have been). Everyone was very kind and comforting. We were in and out! Disaster... more averted!
Having just moved here from Virginia a year ago, I was nervous about having my surgery done in a hospital I've never heard of before. I went in 3 days prior to my surgery for my preop and met the best... more nurses ever. The minute I walked in and introduced myself, they made me feel like I was family and gave me a feeling of trust that I'm in capable hands. Miriam, the head nurse is just fantastic along with her AWESOME crew. The day of my surgery, they already had everything ready and waiting for me. I saw the same friendly and kind faces which immediately put me at ease. Miriam was there again to get me ready for surgery. I met some of the best people during my brief stay at St. Pete General, Miriam and her wonderful crew of nurses, Lennis who transported me in my 'cadillac' bed into the anesthesia room, the super competent Anesthetic team, Phil the nurse who took great care of me after my surgery and Dr. Meena Jain who performed my surgery. They were just OUTSTANDING. I appreciated their care, kindness, expertise and sense of humor. Hands down the best crew ever. 10 stars all the way around from start to finish. The hospital is clean, convenient and parking is free and never a problem. The hospital is equipped to perform modern procedures. I had a robotic surgery. Robotic surgery is similar to a laparoscopic procedure in many respects. My surgeon Dr. Jain made several small incisions and used a video camera and instruments to guide her work. I was in and out the same day, very small amount of pain and discomfort and the next day, I'm able to return to my normal activities except for driving and working out.
Thank you St. Petersburg General Hospital for taking such great care of me during my preop and surgery!!! I love you guys!
