Barnes Jewish located in St. Louis, Missouri, is an absolutely AMAZING hospital! The building is great, and so are the people who are running it. The medical team as well the support staff of housekeeping, security, etc. are excellent and ready to walk that extra mile to help you and make you comfortable. My wife was taken to the ER after she started complaining of a stomachache. The check-in was a breeze and was done by a wonderful nurse who had nice manners. Rhea was triaged and taken back to the room at a reasonable time. The doctor who saw her was a thorough gentleman and had excellent bedside manners. He did not rush her, and even though Rhea spent just five minutes with him, she was very satisfied.

The check-out was also great, and there were no issues with billing at all, surprising enough. Everyone whom we interacted during our visit exceeded our expectations. God Bless All

One great hospital. The staff is wonderful and seem to care about their patients genuinely. The nurses, doctors, surgeons, therapists, and their assistants were out of this world. My brother had a horrific accident, and many people had given up hope on him. But these folks not only got him back from the brink of death, but they also ensured that he was standing on his own feet. It has been a year now since the accident, and Rob has only a slight niggle! You people will always be in our prayers.

I have been reading several positive reviews on different forums, including this one about this hospital. My experience at Barnes Jewish was horrible, to say the least. I had a GI issue, and I was referred to a cardiologist. The cardiologist refused to treat and referred me back to the GI doctor. Due to this tossing around, the doctors failed to notice the infection which had slowly crept in. I was fed up of this tossing, and I asked them to discharge me. A GI at a different hospital was not only able to control the infection but also was able to address the problem. Won’t be visiting the hospital in the near future.

I come from a healthcare background and have visited several hospitals as part of my profession. I have to say, Barnes Jewish Hospital is an incredible hospital. The hospital administration should be very happy that they have such a professional team who know what to do and when to do. No unnecessary chitchats, but engaging in useful conversation with the patients, which is quite helpful. I was on the 7th floor for a few days and was highly impressed with the staff. They were kind, respectful, and very helpful. Thank You!!! I will not hesitate to either return or recommend Barnes Jewish Hospital to everyone.

The ER at the Barnes Jewish Hospital is nothing but a joke. The nurses were rude with my father. He was not able to sit properly due to severe pain in his back. The chairs were very uncomfortable, and it was increasing his discomfort. What does the nurse do…come and shout at him. We were taken in quickly but then made to wait for nearly five hours. There is no prioritization at this ER. I have seen people who came after us and did not have any sort of serious ailment being seen before.

My dad could not take it any longer, and we left AMA. AVOID THIS HOSPITAL like the plague…it is a sheer waste of your time and money.
