I was supposed to undergo left knee surgery after a major accident and was suggested to undergo the same at Aurora St. Lukes Medical Center. Thanks, John for recommending this wonderful hospital. We interacted with a lot of staff (doctors, PA, surgery nurses, anesthesiologist, etc.) during the pre-op, surgery and post-op period. All of them were very professional as well as compassionate and caring. What impressed me the most was that all of them maintained their calm and had loads of patience to answer my wife’s as well as my questions. They kept her in the loop throughout the surgery. After about two hours, the surgeon came and informed my wife that the surgery was successful and I would be able to gain full mobility within a matter of months. Those words were like music to us.

My daughter was brought into the Aurora St. Luke’s Medical Center due to a very high fever, which was a result of pancreatitis. The biggest problem that we encountered was that nobody knew what was happening and no one was ready to answer our questions. My daughter ended up taking medications which she was not supposed to and as a result faced one medical challenge after another. Finally, she was discharged without anybody instructing her about the precautions that needed to be taken. Nobody told her when she could have solid food again. Getting appointments was a herculean task. The doctor did not respond to calls. Felt the whole system needed a shake-up. Pull up your socks, guys lest you get shuttered

One can say that I am regular at the ER of Aurora St. Lukes as I have visited it on quite a few occasions over the past few years. Each time, I was treated well by an incredibly wonderful staff, a staff which valued patient’s health over money. They knew how to get the job done professionally. I have been to other Milwaukee hospitals, but when compared to those, Aurora staff is the best.

Aurora St Lukes Medical Center has a professional staff. They are ready to address all your concerns. Everybody is compassionate and caring. The hospital rooms are clean, and the food is also edible. I highly recommend this excellent hospital. The waiting room has a television which ensures that we are not bored to death while our loved one is undergoing treatment.
