My daughter had to be rushed to the ER. The EMT brought us to this hospital and I’d never heard of it before. A quick yelp search showed that it was not very popular but either way we had no choice. We were at the entrance of the hospital when some paramedics brought my daughter inside. We didn’t have to wait at all, she was taken right in.

the nurses that greeted us at the entrance were very comforting, asking me all kinds of questions about her allergies and current medication. Later on a doctor joined them, greeted me and asked some generic questions about Cathy. I was in shock but they were very polite and well mannered. Waited for me to compose myself and even offered me a glass of water. My daughter is fine now and thanks to Advocate good shepherd she’s happy.

Why is everyone at this hospital so mean? Like if you ask them a simple question they will just frown and bark the answer at you. One lady told me that the rest room was around the corner but it wasn’t. She misguided me?! What kind of a hospital does that to patients? The doctor didn’t smile even once but at least he gave me solid advice. He also diagnosed me well so I’m not complaining about him. But everyone else in this hospital pretends like they work at the cemetary.

Came to visit a friend at this hospital after she fell from a flight of stairs and didn’t like the vibe. She said people weer very rude to her especially the nurses and she wanted to get out of there. Not a good sign I’d say

Negligence at Advocate Good Shepherd needs to stop. This has happened twice already in my family and there’s no way we are going back. I don’t like writing personal stuff about my family which is why I never write reviews to begin with but I think this hospital needs to be shut down because two nearly fatal incidents happened jus because they were too naïve or dumb to see what was actually going on. The first time it was me: I was the patient. I was dealing with a horrible migraine and since I have diabetes the medication they gave me reacted badly with my body.

I had to go to the ER immediately and was admitted in the hospital for 2 days after .took me a while to fully recover from that one. Not just physically, but emotionally. It felt like I was going to die, no lie. When I talked to the doctors about it they said I didn’t fill out the diabetes check box in the medical forms filled out in the beginning. Turns out I didn’t so I didn’t take the case up with the hospital board. But the second time around I just knew it was their fault and this time they didn’t have a medical form to hide behind.

My mother who was coughing and sneezing for days finally decided to let me take her to the hospital. Even though I had a horrorsome experience here a few years ago my mother has always liked this hospital. But turns out it wasn’t a cold bu she had an intestinal issue. Basically the same thing happened again. They gave her medication without taking into account the issues she already had and the medication reacted in a bad manner yet again. Only this time I had filled out her medical forms carefully and meticulously. So now, they have to answer to the hospital board of members and I can’t wait to see some of them getting their asses whipped.

If you need a hip replacement then the good shepherd hospital is the way to go. Dr. Sheena and Dr. Lyon are my personal favorites- have had hours of conversation with the both of them and I can vouch for their competence.
Two extremely fine doctors who know exactly what they’re doing but have a way of making you a part of it. Effortlessly brilliant, their insight will leave you gasping for more especially Dr. Sheena and very comforting doctors.
I hate snobby doctors who think they know it all but that’s not these two. Had my hip replacement surgery and it went as smooth as butter.

Hospital worth 5 stars from first time I entered till I left for good everyone was best. Nurses cared for me doctors treated me with respect the techns were on time and polite the cleaning staff were efficient and never once left my room dirty the security guards were nice and welcoming greeted my friends and led them in the correct direction towards my room all in all I feel it’s a good hospital to come to and I would trust my life in their hands.
