((sighs)) oh man where do I start with this hospital. #1 GET MORE PARKING SPACES!!! The parking here is HORRIBLE. The need a separate parking for staff and one for visitors. It's just horrible and they... more need to take money and build a bigger parking lot. #2 I had both my children at West Houston. When my son was born the staff was nice and attentive, the food is disgusting by the way. But my nurse and my baby nurse were nice. Fast forward to 2017 I had my daughter here as well. Registering is pretty easy and I had a scheduled c-section. Whoever inserted my needle had no idea what the hell they were doing, I was given medicine which I had an allergic reaction to but luckily the nurses responded quickly. The food again was disgusting, I wish I had remembered my baby nurses' name I just know it was a lady with blonde hair. I could not believe she had the nerve to come to work SICK! I mean she was coughing, sneezing and gagging and I was MORTIFIED this woman was working with newborn babies!!! I turned to my family I was so shocked this woman came to work sick knowing she works with babies. I even told my nurse about it. I did not let her take my baby anywhere I waited until night where they switched nurses and let the night nurse handle my daughter. I really would not recommend this hospital. If you can go to Memorial Hermann
I just recently gave birth to my first baby here and couldn't have asked for a better experience. My OB Dr. La Bao Quoc took excellent care of me throughout my whole pregnancy and delivered a very healthy... more baby boy. I had more than 10+ nurses taking care of me and my child throughout the whole experience and every single one was incredibly friendly. You can tell they take their jobs very seriously and have a special devotion to all their patients. What would've been a very scary experience for me was probably one of the most enjoyable things I've ever done. Even the actual childbirth wasn't scary at all, just exciting. Everyone made my boyfriend, family members and I feel more than comfortable and well taken care of.
Dr. Bailey was the best doctor I could ask for she was so amazing and delivered my baby with no problems it was such a smooth experience. Dr.Maloof who did my epidural was also amazing and she did my epidural... more without me evening feeling it. If you are trying to find the best doctors I recommend these two. They are above awesome.
