Say what you will about Jackson Memorial but there are so many other hospitals in Miami I’d prefer. The customer service is horrible, the medical staff are definitely not warm and all in all you don’t feel pampered or anything (like one should in a hospital). Unimpressed

Must tip my hat over to the great team of doctors, surgeons, nurses and other staff in JM.

Have been at this hospital for 2 weeks now on account of my father who was in the ICU and each staff member was so amiable and helpful to me.

Even at times when I just needed someone to reassure that my father’s condition was not all red flags, the head nurse sat down with me through her busy day and calmed me down.

His condition got better and he was shifted to the surgical floor where he received the best care he could’ve possibly received.

I am forever grateful to the team at Jackson Memorial and would strongly suggest this team to anyone with serious heart problems.

Jackson Memorial was not the best. My physician recommended that I get surgery done here and everything was very much off-schedule. It was supposed to happen in the morning at 9:00 but I was only sent to prep for surgery after 10 am. After that the surgery began at 12:30!! Can you believe that? 2 and a half hours in the waiting room. Absurdity

One thing I know for certain is that Jackson Memorial houses the best team of surgeons and nurses in the country. The surgeons especially were world-class. I found out only later about the bloodless surgery movement this team of surgeons led and was very impressed. That’s right, no blood transfusions. What I loved most about JM was its professionalism. Be it a medical staff, a nurse, or the janitor, everyone was very warm and sympathetic towards me. The nurse assigned to me was very friendly and did the best job with the IV drip. I would definitely recommend this team; but of course, there are some shortcomings to this hospital, considering that it’s a public hospital.

You do NOT want to end up at Jackson and I have a few reasons why. First off, the place is just scary. I have had to be taken to the ER here and when I woke up, I remember seeing a homeless (looking) person strolling down the aisle late at night. This gave me some serious nightmares. Besides, most people only go to Jackson if they are really ill and need serious medical attention. Either that, or you have no health insurance.

I have always trusted hospital reviews only from patients who have had their fair share of misfortune, traveling back and forth from hospitals (because let’s face it, there are many phony reviews today). I have had to undergo three surgeries just this year and it’s been tough having to deal with the hospital atmosphere time after time.

Two of these surgeries were at the University of Miami, and the other one was at Jackson. To be honest, I was a little nervous about having to undergo my third surgery in a place I’d never been before- there was something comforting about having to undergo surgery at a private university hospital like UM. But many doctors ask patients to switch between these two institutions, so I didn’t have much of a choice. There are a few things you need to know about Jackson.

First of all, it’s a public hospital, so there isn’t such a thing as privacy and the process of getting admitted is hellacious. Nothing ever starts on time, so don’t expect things to run according to your timetable. But I will say this, the nurses at Jackson were a lot more experienced. Not only that, my nurse did a good job in making sure I wasn’t too stressed out about the procedure and told me I could ask her questions if I had any. The surgeons were also really good, very professional.

The clinical team at Jackson Memorial Miami did a good job in treating my mother and ensuring no further complications arose post-treatment. For years she battled various ailments (some so scary I could barely pronounce) and we worried a lot about her future. Many local hospitals kept bouncing her back and forth to different physicians until we finally got the treatment she needed from JM.

A lot of people told us that since it was part of the public sector, we would be in the waiting room for many hours, but this was not the case. We waited for no longer than 15-30 minutes each time and my mother was able to recover rather speedily. The physician assigned to my mother was very compassionate and did everything in his control to make my mother feel safe and protected. Excellent healthcare provider, even if in the public sector.

Admitted that Jackson may not be the best hospital in Miami, but it’s definitely the best in terms of medical care. The physicians really have the patients’ best interest at heart and they openly welcome patients from all backgrounds.
