Greater Baltimore Medical Center has an amazing emergency department.

They know how to deal with the patients. This was my first visit to the ER, and I am highly impressed. The entire staff was wonderful and treated me with respect. I got a feeling that they genuinely cared for me and did not treat me as just another number. They not only addressed my illness but also gave me tips to avoid a recurrence. Very clean environment. Thanks, GBMC, I’d love to visit this hospital for all my medical needs

There is one insane person in the GBMC who would not take patients even if it is a referral and the appointment had been taken. Dr. Beckman’s staff told me that she does not waste her time in diagnosing diseases which can be easily diagnosed by primary care physicians. They also told me to go back to the doctor who referred me to her.it was absolutely unbelievable. I said a big thank you to these staff members and also told them that she would do humanity a great service if she just quit her job. She is of no use to anybody. I got my sweet revenge when I left the entire team seething in anger.

Greater Baltimore Medical Center is huge but pretty easy to navigate. They have an awesome staff that is ready to help you. If you have an appointment, then the whole process is a breeze. I underwent two procedures here and both the time, the care and affection I received from the staff was incomparable. I have an issue coming out of anesthesia without any problem, but GBMC took good care of it. They also take classes on various health topics. I highly recommend GBMC for all healthcare needs.
