I love the care we receive here! The drs and nurses' bedside manners are amazing, their support of the family of the patient, and their patience with the patient during recovery.
My dad... more had an emergency high risk, quadruple by-pass last week, and while he did have some complications, they were right there with us, and with Dad, helping us through every step of the way.
Today they are prepping him for discharge to a rehab facility, and there is so much care and excitement among his care-team as they are "celebrating" with us, the success of Dads recovery. I am so thankful for Vanderbilt, and that this is where dad was sent for surgery. They saved his life!
Love Vanderbilt. Love the doctors. Love the nurses. Love the students.
This is the worst hospital ever. They do surgery on things that weren't an issue. My step mom had to wait 9 hours for surgery scheduled at 2:30 p.m. They did not address the problem and tore her small... more intestine in the process. I hope someone sues them until they have no facility. Always go to St. Thomas Midtown if you want quality service. She has been waiting in a recovery room for over 12 hours after her wait for 7 hours for surgery. They did the same thing to my grandmother, over medicated and said she is old. Pathetic
Dr. Matthew Resnick is my Urologist for 2 different types of cancers. He is the Best of the Best, has a great bed side manner and makes you feel very comfortable when explaining what he wants to do or... more the review of the test results. He really cares about his patients, has the most upbeat attitude that I have ever had for cancer treatment professionals. He makes you feel like there is hope, regardless where you are in the cycle of treatment or diagnosis. I would never leave his office for another Urologist.
