I spent around ten days as an inpatient in Emory St. Joseph facility spread over three stays. I have also been to a few other hospitals in Fulton County. I have to admit that this facility is the quietest and friendliest hospital that one can come across. One can get a good night’s rest in this hospital. The nursing staff is best that is out there. They are good and pleasant. You can have nice relaxed conversations with these wonderful people. They go beyond the call of duty and make sure that the patients under their watch are as comfortable as possible. They always give hope to patients and treat them like any other normal human being, and not just another sick patient. They have been able to keep my nausea as well as pain under good control. Not just the nursing staff, the doctors are also great. You can talk to them, and they are ready to discuss your health with you. They were able to get my condition under good control. The discharge was also very quick. Food, though not gourmet, is good and palatable. I would always prefer coming to St Joseph's over other hospitals.

I have had one of the most informative, wonderful, and stress-free experience. The pulmonary specialists, anesthesiologists, and the nurses who prepped me for bronchoscopy were great. When the doctors heard that I get very anxious, they helped in calming me down and told that the entire process would be done under general anesthesia, so I would not be feeling anything. The entire procedure went without any hiccups. In the recovery area, the attending doctor met me and gave me the findings of the procedure complete with colored photos! I will not be lying if I say that this is one of the kindest and most professional people that I have come across. Thanks so much!

The worst hospital in Fulton county region. I have anemia (sickle cell), but the hospital never understood the seriousness of my condition. I was not even seen by a physician. I was seen by a PA, no harm – but he has never encountered sickle cell anemia, so has no idea about the line of treatment. He just proceeded to continue what I am currently taking. A terrible experience. Had heard a lot about this facility, but unfortunately for me, it has been one hellish experience. Would not step into this hospital again.

Nothing but praise for the entire staff whom we encountered. My mother underwent revision surgery at St Joe’s. Everyone was great. They were ready to answer every single question of ours. It was not some vague answers, but answers that actually answered our questions. If they were not sure, they would say it straight of and not beat around the bush. The team always offered assistance. The most interesting aspect of this wonderful hospital was that everyone had a smile on their face... Awesome people.

I was here with my son who had fractured three fingers of his left hand and was crying out in agony. Despite his cries, nobody came to see us for hours. We came to the ER at 12:45, filled the paperwork and then had to wait for nearly three to four hours before anybody came to see us. Finally, a doctor came, checked my son and gave necessary orders and then rushed off. She apologized on rushing off, but then told me they have a huge rush. One nurse admitted they are severely understaffed and they are doing their best. Want to say good things about this hospital, but then cannot because the wait was simply unbearable. The hospital management has to get in more people…plain and simple.

Emory St. Joseph Hospital is the best. From the time we stepped into this hospital for my mother’s hip replacement surgery, every individual was friendly, extremely helpful and most importantly extremely professional. They were always ready to help. During no point in our stay were they rude and whenever we asked something, never were we told it was not their job. If the staff did not know, they would ask for some time, but always got back. My mother’s procedure went off smoothly, and she is recuperating well. Nothing but ultimate respect.
