The psychiatric unit has some really professional medical staff working here, easy to approach, kind hearted, compassionate towards all patients, and no signs of favoritism (something I’ve always worried about). At Chippenham they ensured we didn’t feel like “retards”, the way the world makes us feel otherwise.

I cannot believe how big of a joke this hospital is- to think that these doctors actually have a license to practice medicine is beyond me. The kinds of excuses they have for giving patients certain medication is downright hilarious. I am not a doctor, heck, I’m not even in the medical field but I felt like I was light years ahead of his medication knowledge.

It was late at night so there were only 2-3 doctors on that floor but still, that’s no excuse. Had the worst vomiting sensation throughout the night but ignored it until at 1:30 in the morning I started puking. Projectile vomiting got me out of bed and rushed towards the hospital without even taking my phone. My sister has always talked about Chippenham, don’t recall if it was good stuff or bad, but I decided to go there anyway because it’s the closest ER to home.

Once I got there, I told them the issue and didn’t have to wait long before I was asked to go to the doctor’s room. Once inside I realized the doctors had retired for the night and it was just PAs. When I told them the issue, he recommended Tylenol and said I could leave. I. Was. Shocked.Tylenol for vomiting and body aching? You've got to be F-ing kidding me.

I asked him why not a stronger drug and he said that they’d had some issues in the past with opioid and that they were trying their best not to prescribe it. I told them that I had no issues in the past with addiction and besides, it’s not like a single injection of it in the ER would turn me into an addict! When I asked him if I could get Ketamine in a low dose instead, he looked at me and confirmed that I was a drug addict, just because I knew my drugs. He started blaming the entire opioid crisis on me too and clearly, it was going to be a very long night.

I didn’t even bother to acknowledge him and fled the scene. Walked out of the hospital without signing anything or even letting anyone know because they deserve to be ashamed of themselves. A hospital as big as that with doctors as rude as that. Very, very disappointed and there’s no way in hell that I’d ever go back to this hospital.

My father’s smoking led to him developing a lung condition when he was 40, so I spent a lot of my summer vacations sitting with him in his hospital room. Coming back to Chippenham was a total blast from the past, but I’m glad to see that the quality of health care has not depreciated even a little bit. Kudos to all the amazing staff members who work their butts off to keep people from dying. Much appreciated.

I’m a huge fan of this hospital. My wife needed knee surgery and we’d been shortlisting a couple of hospitals. This one made the final cut and we are so happy with the results. The surgeons and nurses here are top notch quality. 5 star rating for sure.

Definitely a joke of a hospital, it’s funny just how unqualified they are. I went to the Chippenham in Richmond last month on account of my lump and even though I feared it was cancer, I was not going to think it… just yet. Of course after a lot of tests and multiple doctor’s appointments, it was confirmed by one of the “qualified” doctors that I did, in fact, have cancer.

His conclusion was apparently based on the CT scans that he had procured but apparently there were no evident signs of cancer (at least back then). The fact that he proclaimed this in front of my mother and father and we worried our butts off for 2 whole weeks is beyond me. I mean, I don’t have to tell you how anyone would take that news, so I started thinking about my life ending and what not.

To get a second opinion I talked to my PCP who was on vacation in the Bahamas. When he returned, he looked at the CT scan and wondered how the doctor had made such a drastic conclusion. Very unprofessional place. Of course, there’s still a good chance I have cancer but at least there’s also a good chance that I don’t. Fingers crossed and if I’m out of the woods, I’m suing this hospital.

The OBs at Chippenham are unbeatable- there’s literally not another practice that I would gladly give responsibility of my life to (and my little chicklings). My first baby was delivered here back in 2014 and it was a brilliant experience. Came back here last year when my second baby was on the way and delivered just last month. Again, needless to say, it was an excellent experience, amazing midwives and nurses who supported me throughout.
