I had undergone an EGD as well as a colonoscopy about two weeks back at Baptist Medical Center South. The doctor who did it was very kind and apologetic since he was an hour late. While he was yet to come, his staff ensured that all the necessary details were kept ready and I was prepped for the same. When the doctor came in, the whole process was completed very quickly. I appreciate the staff for their quick thinking. If they had waited for the doctor to come and then started the whole process, then it would have taken very long. I am very pleased with the services and would recommend visiting the Baptist Medical Center South for your medical needs.

This review is a bit dated. My dad was in this hospital last September for surgery. The surgery went well, but I cannot say the same for postoperative care. We had been waiting for the physical therapist to come and evaluate, based on which my father could be discharged. Three weeks into the stay, a doctor named Dr. Khan comes and tells us, “The PT would be in today.” We waited for the whole day, but nobody came. The next day, we caught hold of the nurse and asked her to check if the PT would be in on that day.

The nurse comes back and says, “You are being discharged. The doctor has allowed your discharge.” We were shocked. How can an aged person with tubes attached to him and bedridden for three weeks be discharged? We even were not sure if he was even able to stand. We confront the nurse, and she says she will check with the doctor again and let us know. Another two-hour wait ensues, before the nurse comes and says, “I am sorry. The doctor got confused between you and another patient who wanted to be discharged. In your case, the PT would come tomorrow, evaluate your dad and then decide about discharge.” It is a good thing that my dad always asked me to keep my anger under control, or else the nurse would have been in the ICU.

The PT finally came late in the evening the next day and approved my father’s discharge after a couple of days.

I have decided that we would never go anywhere close to this hospital.

The Baptist Medical Center South will do a world of good if they get a fresh pair of legs into the hospital. The present bunch of nurses are very lazy and irresponsible. They are too busy to give the patients medicine on schedule. They would not be found in the nursing station, and sometimes it takes up to an hour to get hold of a nurse who could assist with medication administration. These nurses are least bothered about their patients.

Baptist Medical Center South is a very nice hospital. The staff, nurses and the doctors are out of this world. Besides the hospital staff, the gift shop and the coffee bar are the two best things that I like about Baptist Medical Center South. I have a small suggestion. It would be very nice if the hospital management arranges to keep the gift shop and the coffee bar open on the weekends also. The hospital sees a lot of footfalls on the weekends, so if both are kept open, it would mean more earnings.

My son had met with an accident, and he was rushed to Baptist Medical Center South. I am very glad they took him there. The nursing staff was very helpful, and so was the x-ray technician. They were compassionate and helpful. I am not able to recollect the names, but I want to thank each individual involved in my son’s care. They not only took care of my son but also went out of their way to calm me down and assure me that things are fine. I used to work as a nurse assistant, so I know how tough their lives can be. Thank you.

Mom had undergone surgery at Baptist recently. The surgical staff not only took good care of her but made her feel very comfy. Due to their excellent care, she was shifted to ICU and then general floor really quickly. I would not hesitate to recommend this hospital to anyone for healthcare needs.

Brought my grandfather here after he suffered his 3rd stroke. The staff treated him with a lot of respect and dignity. Every single member of the team, right from the nurse’s aide to nurses to the doctors were very helpful and compassionate. They explained in detail everything concerning his current as well as future treatments. A very pleasant experience. I would recommend this facility.

I had gone to the Baptist Medical Center South ER on a Saturday due to aggravating leg pain and was in unbearable pain. The on-call doctor came and did the necessary treatment, and I was triaged to the upper floor. While waiting for the bed to get ready, I, out of the blue, grabbed the hand of the ER nurse, who I guess was Tyler and asked him to sit with me till I was transported to the floor. He smiled and sat with me for the entire time. Even after I was shifted to the floor, he came up after his shift timings and stayed with me for a while. I do not know why I did that, and I feel embarrassed when I think about it. But I would say that everyone stepped up. I would recommend this hospital.

Last year, in March, my wife was transported to Baptist Medical Center South after she suffered a minor stroke. The staff that treated her was awesome. After she was admitted, the caring and courteous staff continued their care and even took pains to ensure that I was kept in the loop and looked after well. Baptist Medical Center South is a wonderful hospital with amazing staff who are not only knowledgeable but also very compassionate.
