If you need back surgery You might want to consider the surgery ward at advocate sherman hospital they have the nicest staff ever special mention to the nurses at this practice you guys really know how to make a patient feel relaxed and at home not only that but if you have any complaints or suggestions for the hospitals you better say it to the nurses. They are so badass and basically run the place. They will make it happen.

No stars from me. Sherman deserves a reputation so bad no one will ever dare go there.
Was considering writing this review for months now but never really got to it.
Then one of my colleagues told me how she went to Sherman because of a review she’d read but it was fake.
Nurses are fake, some of them will be purposefully nasty to your face just to vent out their frustration.
Weirdly enough the hospital called back after I got discharged and asked how my experience was.
I explained my disappointed stance and they said they would look into it.

A hit or miss kind of experience. Very risky you can never tell when you’re going to have a good or bad experience. Sometimes they are super caring, will come up to you many times and ask how you’re doing .then there are times when they just push you into the dark and expect you to do everything by yourself. Even get your own lunch sometimes. How is that even possible for patients that are admitted?

Sherman hospital was my go to place when it came to my reproductive health. My mother was a nurse here back in the day but that’s not just it. They were kind and caring of all patients. But things are not quite the same now. Here I am 20 years later standing in the women’s health care waiting room hoping to get a mammogram done. Made an appointment for 11 am sharp so that Icould go to work directly after.

Before it was such a simple procedure. You go inside, check in, and you’re ready to roll. Not anymore. They ask you to sit down. Then you wait. For as long as they want you to. There’s no reason, if you ask them they won’t have one so don’t bother. So basically my appointment for 11 am ended up happening at 12:52 pm. That’s almost 2 whole hours. Late to work I was very angry.

My son, Kenneth Byers was taken into the er at advocate sherman on the 10th of April, 2019. I was in tears by the time he was released. Not because I was upset but because they were so kind and endearing to my little boy. He’s been bullied all his life because of his skin condition but over here they treat patients like they’re family. So helpful and comforting. In the best way possible.

The day surgery unit has the best surgeons and nurses in the country, world class medical professionals who you can count on. Just got out of surgery and I can say they made me feel very comfortable. Whether it was before or after the surgery. More than the pain they helped me deal with the anxiety which I was ery thankful for.

For a neat freak like myself I gotta say the er room at advocate sherman was a little too satisfying. My son has been battling with cancer for years now so going to the er is not a new expeirence. But finding an er that I actually approve of is new. Other hospitals have neat ers too especially in this region and in serious conditions we’ve taken our son to a couple of hospitals in the neighborhood. Why we kept moving from hospital to hospital?

I guess nothing really stuck with us. We didn’t feel safe anywhere it was like a one time treatment thing and then we would move on to the next. My fiance is a bit of a hot head so everywhere he goes he picks up petty fights with the staff members so we get a bad impression about the hospital.. or the other way around.. whatever. Either way our experience at Advocate sherman was somewhat different. The staff does not neglect you despite whatever emotions you may present to them. This was not the case in previous hospitals.

Many times they pretended like they forgot about my son or they didn’t do anything intentionally but I always knew.. but at sherman everyone was nice. Even when my fiance said something snarky to the doctor in charge he smiled and laughed it off. It was a simple disagreement but they took it in good spirit. The patients come first here and then the rest. Only first time at sherman and yet I think we will come back. My son also felt comfortable in a room that wasn’t his bedroom for the first time in his life. He made some friends here too with some of the nurses.

Even though I had a good visit to the dentist I was upset when I saw the hospital bill. Not nice how much they unnecessarily charged me. Billed me incorrectly first of all and took them a lot of running around to get it sorted
