Fantastic!!!! Baylor's ER team – nurses, doctors, and lab technicians – are great. Baylor has a well-oiled system up in place here. The staff ensures that every detail is looked into and every precaution is taken. The hospital offers clean and spacious examining room. Baylor looks inviting and gives out a warm vibe. Very happy that I decided to seek care here; will be back if the need arises

I was having extreme pain in my leg, and I decided to seek an appointment here. Booked it and when I went for the registration, they asked me to pay $40 copay. No issues, I take out cash, and the lady declined to take it. I was stunned. She said they only accept money orders or credit cards. I told her that my bank was far away and it would take time to get a MO. She would have none of it. Luckily, my wife had her credit card with her, so we paid off. I still cannot believe why she did not want to take cash. It was not if I was short on change or anything…baffling

The room where I was admitted was completely unsanitary. The sink was filled with used towels. It also had a meal tray that had dried food in it; the housekeeping did not deem it necessary to clean the room when the patient left. I requested the doctor to change my room or at least get it cleaned. They declined a shift of room, but got it cleaned…three hours after I complained. It is a surprise that I did not end up with any illness from these unhygienic conditions. Will not be back…do not want to risk my life.

One of the best emergency rooms that I have come across, and I have visited my fair share of emergency rooms. Everyone was courteous, friendly, and extremely helpful. A wonderful team of nurses and doctor treated me. All had excellent bedside manners. The doctor made a proper diagnosis and shared with me a follow-up treatment plan. Never encountered such wonderful customer service anytime in my life. Will not hesitate to go back

Strictly a visitor’s review. I went in with a friend who had a scheduled appointment. While awaiting her return, I just had a tour of the hospital. Must say, it was a wonderful hospital. The people were very friendly. The staff did not hesitate to smile and greet when they saw me. It was not a forced smile; it was genuine. My friend was treated by a professional and empathetic team of nurses and doctors, who genuinely believed in ensuring my friend gets well. Keep it up, Baylor

The hospital is great, and so are the people who are running it. However, my review is for the cafeteria, something which we take for granted. The cafeteria at Baylor University Medical Center, Dallas is impressive. I was stunned by the available options. The staff working in the cafeteria is friendly, and they serve you with a smile. The best part – the food is very affordable. Had our heart’s fill after getting the appointment part completed

I am not sure if the doctor can purposely not disclose the name of the drug that is being administered. My son had minor jaw surgery, and the anesthesiologist just would not inform me the meds which was being administered to my son. I asked him twice, and he still did not tell me. I told the as****e that I was his primary caregiver, and I had the right to know. Even then, he did not answer me. He relented only after I threatened that I would file a police complaint and make a formal complaint against him with the hospital authorities. Will not allow anybody from my family to come and seek care at this dangerous place.
