It’s a shame that standard health care has dropped so low that I have forgotten what it is like to be treated the right way in the United States. The nurses and doctors here pretend like they have nothing better to do than gossip with other medical professionals and spread rumors. No such thing as patient confidentiality, and don’t get me started with the cleanliness and hygiene at this hospital. They are the reason America’s healthcare system has gone down the drain.

I like the way the staff at Abbott Northwestern treats patients. My wife had 2nd stage breast cancer and was going through a really rough time in her life. I too had been transferred to New York for a project for 3 months and could not be with her through this difficult time. I flew in every weekend and was present with her when her chemotherapy began.

I mean I guess starting out she was not as tired and would come back feeling a little nauseated, but basically okay. Towards the end, she became a lot weaker and the chemo was not doing her any favors. At that point, I have no one else to thank but the amazing staff at Abbott. There were two weeks in between her hardest chemo sessions when I couldn’t be there with her because of excessive workload but the staff members and doctors were so kind to her.

They gave her special treatment considering she had to drive herself back and forth after chemo which is not the ideal situation. I know I didn’t do my part as her husband, but I am thankful that the hospital really stepped in and was there for her when she had no one else to lean on. Now that my project is done and dusted, I am here for the rest of her chemo sessions.

But I think it’s important to let other patients know that even if you’re going through this alone, this hospital and it’s amazing staff will make sure that you are never alone. Especially in such a difficult and turbulent time in your life. One of the best hospitals I’ve ever been to, with the best hearted medical professionals. Trust them with my life (and obviously, my wife’s). Thanks!

I was recommended by my doctor to get my colonoscopy procedure done at Abbott and while I obliged, I called them up in advance to book my appointment and check out what the hospital was like. Luckily I didn’t have to go all the way because the phone call was enough to tell me how incompetent the staff was: no regard for patients and didn’t even bother calling me back. Needless to say, I didn’t go there.

Wanted to have a natural birth and the midwives at the L&D unit of Abbott were very welcoming and approachable. I had a lot of questions regarding a natural pool birth and they answered them all with utmost precision. But at the last minute, I wished to change my mind and go with epidurals, because the pain was so bad I thought I would pass out midway. Anyway, turns out I needed a c-section and overall, it was a positive experience.
Even when I was going bonkers with all the hormones, the OB and the nurses were very understanding, I cursed a lot at them and they didn’t vent their anger at me. Very patient, kind, and compassionate doctors and nurses at Abbott. I would also recommend the lactation classes they offer post birth because I had major issues with lactation- something most new mothers experience. IF I have a suggestion, it would be to offer postpartum therapy, it’s something a lot of new mothers would benefit from.

A hospital that calms you is worth your money. There’s just something so reassuring about this hospital- the nurses were so kind and attentive to me, the doctors were helpful, informative, constantly checking up on me and very sweet to my family members, answering all their insane questions with patience, and I wasn’t woken up by loud nurses or flipping on and off lights. Due to my migraine they had dimmed the lights down and would only turn them on when they came in to give me medication. I didn’t even realize it half the time. Was a very smooth experience.
