I love the Hollywood beach and my partner and I keep coming down here every once in a while. But this time, on the beach, I remember my partner collapsing on the sand out of nowhere, complaining about a shooting pain in her left hips. I called 911 and the EMT was very prompt, came in under 2 minutes. They took us to Aventura where she was given immediate medication to stop the piercing pain. They said she needed a CAT scan and that was also done in a jiff. She had kidney stones, this was found out very fast as well and she had to stay the night. I appreciated the speedy discovery of cause, and everything else they did to make her feel comfortable. Even though they wanted to do a surgery to remove them, we politely declined and said she’d take the medication. They were fine with this and said we could leave the following day. Loved it!

My sister showed up at my house this morning, saying she needed someone to take her to the hospital (she’s scared of hospitals) and she said Aventura would be fine, considering it’s so close to my house. I’ve never been there though, and I always go to South Miami, but I obliged, given she was feeling sick. Apparently her tummy wasn’t agreeing with whatever she took in and this had been going on for 3 days. So she needed to get it checked out. After work, I took her to Aventura at 7:30 pm. We went to the ER because there was no way we could be squeezed in by a general physician at that hour. But little did we know our wait at the ER waiting room would be unbelievably long.

We finally got to see the doctor at 2 AM- that’s right, we waited for 6.5 hours JUST to get out of the waiting area in the ER. Why is it called an “emergency” room if they don’t care about emergencies? Anyway, once we got to see the doctor, they said that she needed to get admitted as an inpatient after keeping her on “observation” for the night- which was fine, except when she was shifted to her room. It was the ugliest room I’d ever seen, it literally looked like a jail. There was a funky smell and no one was respectful at the hospital.

The nurse who was assigned to my sister was constantly on her phone and barely ever looked up. Even when my sister had to take her meds, the nurse would up and disappear and return 35-40 minutes later with a smug look on her face. When I talked to her sternly about giving my sister her meds on time, she literally rolled her eyes at me and said that there was no rush. Her name was Hannah. Later on, they said they needed to take a CAT scan to find out the problem. By now my sister had been in this hospital for 28 hours, with no update on the issue.

After another 15 hours, they said that the CAT scan would be taken the following day, and that she should just take it easy and rest. That’s when we put two and two together and found out that they were just trying to suck the money out of our medical insurance policy. What a disgusting hospital? My sister checked herself out of the hospital within the next hour and I took her to South Miami where she wasn’t just treated like another pawn to scam money out of. Very upset with the service at Aventura and will NEVER go back there.

Aventura is definitely one of the best hospitals in Florida, and I hold no reservations when I recommend this hospital to anybody. Lovely place, they will take care of EVERYTHING. My rating is a solid 5-star!

When I required some urgent medical assistance when in North Miami, my family doctor recommended Aventura Hospital, saying one of his colleagues works there. I went there and requested for that doctor, but apparently he was on sabbatical. The receptionist was not very nice and acted like she didn’t understand my accent (which was racist but whatever). I would’ve written a nasty post for that remark alone, but the medical care I received here was unlike anything I’d ever experienced before.

The nurses were very patient with me. They kept me composed and were very empathetic towards my situation, which sometimes is really all you need from a nurse. I am dead scared of needles and pointy objects, so when they needed to take a blood sample, I was screaming bloody murder throughout the hospital, but they really did a good job at calming me down. Not even sure why I was so surprised by this, maybe because I’d read a few bad reviews about this hospital.

Anyway, my interactions with the doctors was my favorite. They are really good listeners, something I was NOT expecting. So my dad was a physician, and he was a very hostile man, he thought no one knew better than him. So when I saw doctors who listened patiently to everything I had to say, that was a pleasant surprise. Can’t complain about the follow up service either, it was very good. They were very accommodating all in all and I was taken good care of.

After being an inpatient in this hospital for 4 days, I was asked by my personal physician to ask for a follow up appointment. I was surprised that they hadn’t offered it themselves, but when I asked, they said, “sure, why not.” They said they’d call me with a date when the doc was in, but it’s been a week since I left, and still no message. I’d be surprised if they actually called me back about this. Not very satisfied with their service.
