My wife took me to Doctor’s Community Hospital last weekend because their neurosurgeons are apparently “amazeballs”- quoting her. I knew my case was a high risk one and it would demand a surgery at the earliest possible but my wife was not willing to delay it any further. I was shocked by how friendly and obliging the staff at this hospital was, almost like they had a knack for understanding patients and their families. My wife had already contacted them 2 months ago so she knew a few of the doctors by their names and was my rock through the whole process. I didn’t have to do a thing, just go wherever they asked me to go and lie down as instructed. Was really blown away by the service here.

Few thoughts on the hospital- it’s definitely a fine hospital to get admitted in but there are some red flags along the way. If I had read this review before going to the hospital I would’ve found it insightful which is why I’m sharing it:

  • The waiting time is a bit much. It doesn’t matter if you make an appointment but in this country it’s pretty mad how long you have to wait. I was thanking my lucky stars the entire time I was waiting that I am not a sick person in general otherwise I’d be waiting half my life. It was insane how even though I’d made an appointment it took me 1.5 hours to actually get past the waiting area.
  • Once in the doctor’s room I was surprised to see it wasn’t even a doctor. It was a physicians assistant and even though they are both equally qualified to prescribe medication or a diagnosis to the patient I would feel much more comfortable with an actual doctor. Still I held my breath and just let him do his thing. He recommended that I get admitted fro a day or two so they can check for any bad signs and I obliged not knowing what I had signed myself into.
  • The first 20 hours were fine, I was really tired so basically spent most of my time sleeping. Or at least trying to. The ward that I was in was pretty messed up I’d say, I even asked the nurses sometimes if it was a mental ward because people would be screaming randomly in the middle of the night. They assured me that it was just patients scared of needles getting injections.
  • Weirdly enough in my 52 hours of being a patient at this hospital I saw one doctor for 5 minutes and that was it. The majority of the staff were nurses and it was almost like they ran the place. Especially at nights because the doctors would leave by 7 pm I reckon. If tyou have any issue then the nurses approach you and even though I prefer the day shift nurses to the night shift nurses I gotta hand it to them, they know how to handle a situation well.
  • Some nurses are not very nice, I had some issues with 2 of the night shift nurses who would not respond to the call button. I tend to get extremely suffocated in closed rooms and whenever they’d exit the room they’d close the door which I didn’t like. Wouldn’t respond to the call button either.

If you’re looking for the worst hospital in Maryland then you’ev come to the right place. No organization, no help provided, no medical staff worth relying on, it’s a dump to be honest and patients come here to die. Harsh but true…

THE BEST ER STAFF IN THE COUNTRY. IN THE WORLD!!!

My dramatic experience at this hospital just goes to prove how cool the doctors and nurses are specifically in the ER room. My dad was having a mild heart attack and he claimed he was going to die. I freaked out and called all my family who arrived within the hour. It was a huge scene with 20+ family members gathered at the hospital. Still no one said anything negative and they were very understanding. Ofcourse my father didn’t die that night and even though it was a night full of drama, the hospital was awesome.

Shocked by how OCD level clean the bathrooms in the ER waiting room were. I approve of this hospital because if a hospital is clean you know you’re in good hands.

Less than satisfactory – my rating for this hospital would be 2- not because I disliked it but because I hated it – very cold staff who wont care about hurting a patient – literally jammed the IV tube in my arm even though I told her it was hurting me – she then walked away like she was happy with herself – to be honest I was stunned by how incompassionate the staff was to me- not just a nurse but the doctors who came in to check up on me as well – concerns I had about the staff was not taken well either.
