My daughter had to spend a fortnight in the ICU. We have never experienced the quality of care that we received here at any other hospital. This is one bunch of competent, and friendly medical staff who believe that every patient deserves better care and would go to any extent to ensure that. Appreciate the efforts you put in taking care of my daughter

This review is for something that happened a few months back.

I was very happy with Duke University Hospital until I reached the billing department. Like its other counterparts, this department did not fail to cause me stress and disappointment. They got everything correct but filled in old insurance. Naturally, the insurance was denied. They asked for the insurance again, and I gave it. But what do these nincompoops do, enter wrong information again. When they did not get the money, they call up again and this time threaten that I will be turned over to collections and they did. I ended up arguing with the collections and the hospital management that the mistake was from their side. The collection agency was understanding, but the hospital administration was not. Finally, a new billing executive came, and he filled in the new insurance details, and the whole thing got resolved. This, however, has left a very bad taste in my mouth. Won’t be back again

So, time for another surgery on my back and here I am back at Duke. Another stay for a week, and I am off again. I have been to Duke about three to four times and each time I have got excellent service. The staff is excellent, very professional, and very knowledgeable. Amazing Caring People! Very fortunate to stay within five miles of the hospital

I have thyroid cancer and regularly visit Duke Hospital for treatment. An added incentive is the presence of many specialists both within Duke Cancer Center and in the Duke property. I accept the fact that their ER is pathetic and does need some serious makeover, but the hospital itself is excellent. They offer many exceptional services. I have got a rare form of cancer and have got many complex surgeries done here. My oncologist, hematologist, allergist, neurologist, pulmonologist, rheumatologist, and many other specialists are located here. I am now in remission, and it is only because of these wonderful people. I would recommend this hospital to all those who seek some form of treatment for cancer either for themselves or their loved ones.
