I would recommend going to Shady Grove instead of Frederick Regional, it’s close by and a lot more efficient. I've had horrible migraines over the past year. I know that I am still not completely fine, no matter how many times they try to convince me that I am. But there’s a way to talk to patients, and this hospital does not know how to do that. No matter how many times you ask them questions, they pretend like you’re too dumb to know, so don’t even bother trying. Very disappointed with my visit here, not coming back ever.

Sometimes I wonder if it’s worth reading reviews before going to hospitals. And all I can say is that I am SO relieved that I didn’t do that before going to Frederick Regional. Because I legit would’ve cried. There is so much negativity out there, and if it was even accurate I would’ve been fine with it. But all the hate on the internet doesn’t do justice to the treatment that my father received at this hospital.

A common complaint that I’d noticed was that apparently the doctors weren’t caring enough. The doctor that tended to my father had a horrible stomach cramp and yet on my father’s second day at the hospital, he showed up on his day off, just to check up on him and make sure he was feeling okay. If that isn’t caring enough, I don’t know what is.

A little back story: my dad has had two heart attacks, back to back-two weeks ago and it’s been scary. The first one was very mild, we didn’t even take him to the hospital. In fact, he didn’t even tell us, but he knew. The second time around, he didn’t have to tell us. We rushed him to FMH because my sister’s boyfriend works there. And thank God we did because it was a big one.

Not only were the cardiac doctors (and all the other staff- didn’t get a chance to pen down their names) very effective but they gave fantastic, speedy solutions and discussed everything with the family members before making any decisions. My father had to be taken to the cardiac care unit as soon as we got here and two weeks later, he’s still in there, holding onto life. But we are not concerned, we know he’s in good hands. Thank you, all.

Even though I am relatively new to Dickerson I know that FMH is one of the good ones. Not just my experience but my friends, my colleagues, relatives…everyone only has good things to say about this place. I think that’s ‘nuf said.

Came to Frederick Regional to deliver my second child. It was a bumpy ride all the way, but Frederick went out of their way to make my stay a little more comfortable. I would not blame them for the complications that arose from the anesthesiologist- I blame the anesthesiologist alone. But honestly, that was the only issue I had. Everything else, from beginning to end, was rather smooth a process.

I came in as soon as my water broke and was greeted by a nurse at the entrance. We’d called ahead of time, letting them know we were on our way, so as to iron out the details about our room. When I was delivering my first child, we had some issues with the hospital. The pre-booked room somehow vanished and we had to wait for 30 minutes before getting a room. This time, we left no stone unturned and luckily everything fell into place.

The nurse wheeled me towards the birthing suite which was nice and spacious. There was everything I needed, three very attentive nurses who kept running back and forth and getting me water and ice chips (when my husband wasn’t). The OB checked on me every couple of minutes to see how far along I’d come. For some reason, I was stuck on 7 cm dilated for about 2 hours, which was the most uncomfortable I’d ever been in my life.

Of course, later on we figured out the baby was breached, so we needed to go for Cesarean. This was fine, up until some complications arose from the anesthesia given to me. As a high blood pressure patient this was a bit of a risk to begin with, but there was no way I could take the pain otherwise. Either way, turns out it was a complication because the anesthesiologist screwed up on her part, because she’s supposed to verify all the details beforehand. I was very close to suing her but figured, things cleared up in a few days, so what’s the harm.

Big shout out to our OB, Dr. Patel who really did the best job dealing with me and my hormonal state. I was screaming and yelling at everyone who talked to me or gave me “their opinions” when they weren’t asked. Dr. Patel didn’t take into consideration any of the tormentings and continued to treat me like he did on a daily basis. Let bygones be bygones. It was the perfect, ideal situation for me to give birth in and even though I was rooting for natural childbirth, things didn’t go my way, but at the end of the day, I’m just happy my healthy baby boy is now in my arms. At last.

After a pretty bad heart episode, my wife brought me into Frederick and I gotta say, not such a bad hospital to spend your birthday in. The staff found out through my documents that too- didn’t tell them anything, and everyone wished me. Everyone was cordial with me, even after my birthday, the staff in particular was very thorough and professional. I enjoyed my short stay here.

Very unprofessional. I was interested in this sleep study they were conducting and volunteered because I was someone who suffered from sleep apnea for years on end. But it was a disappointment, all in vain. After conducting the test, when I asked for the results, they refused to give it to me, saying I had no signed a release. Why else would I conduct a test though?
When I went to the hospital to find out about this and the doctor who was in charge of the experimentation, he said nothing seemed to be wrong. It was pretty evident that he was telling me the bare minimum. But the bill sent to me later on was certainly not the bare minimum.
