I come to Tampa General quite frequently as I have a condition called Sickle Cell Anemia. The Doctors and Nursing staff are very professional. I've been to other hospitals where I have been not treated... more so well. Sickle Cell is a very serious disease and also extremely painful. I've lost two family members to this disease and it has also almost taken my life as well. Most people don't understand the extreme pain I go through when I have these crises. I've encountered some nursing staff at different hospitals who laugh and make snide remarks that I must be faking concerning the amount of pain that I'm in so when I press the buzzer to request pain medication I've had to wait for up to 2 hours to get anyone to help me. So I appreciate the care and compassion shown by the nurses and doctors at Tampa General Hospital. They do a great job.
