My father had come to this hospital ER in early morning hours with complaints of chest pain and shortness of breath. The only progress he has made till now is that he was triaged; still waiting to be seen by the doctor. It has been now four hours, and the ER is bloody f*****g slow. They tried sending him away, but he insisted that he get treated here because his insurance is accepted here. Maybe we should have listened to them and taken him elsewhere because waiting to seek care here might also result in his condition getting worsened.

My brother tripped while walking in the house and busted his forehead open and got the wind knocked out of him. We rushed him to Medical City via ambulance as we did not want to take any chance. He was taken in immediately and before long was getting stitches. He was asked to wait for some more time to ensure he was okay. The nurses were kind and gentle and gave us some crackers. After waiting for an hour, the doctor discharged Bob. We came back after a week to get the stitches removed. All was good. We are very happy with the way he was treated here. Thank you all!!!! Great experience

My nurses were absolutely wonderful. They made my day. I was feeling down and out, throwing up, not able to keep anything down, and extremely exhausted. I was in pretty bad shape. I was taken in and then admitted to the floor. The nurses were nice, very friendly, caring, and made me laugh. They were patient with me. They ensured that I was mentally at peace while being admitted here. My wife was also made comfortable while waiting for my discharge. Overall, I got very good care here. Thank you, folks. All of you would be in our prayers

I had surgery at Medical City Dallas back in 2018 and was treated very well. Everything functioned very smoothly. Right from the admission till discharge, everything was handled very professionally. My husband and I were nervous about undergoing surgery, but the wonderful nurses and the surgeon calmed us down. The surgeon explained the entire procedure to us in great detail and encouraged us to ask questions. He only proceeded when our doubts were cleared. Very happy with the service that I got here. It has been one year now, and I have not faced any problems till now

I am not sure if the hospital people are praising is the same Medical City Dallas that I visited. A loved one was having chemo in building D. Must say, things could not get any more disorganized than this. The front desk lady was all at sea and did not know how to handle the public. She was clearly overwhelmed when there were more than five to six people in the waiting area. She made us sign thrice, and even then, we were not on the list. After a wait of nearly four hours, I just got up and asked her our status, and she was flummoxed because she could not find us on the list. I flipped out and made her check twice and finally made her enter us in the list. After all the drama, my loved one was finally sent in to get her chemo. Please keep in mind we are not talking about some basic stuff like cold or fever. We are talking about CANCER. The front desk lady needs to be REPLACED!!!!!

It seems that customer service, communication, and any type of medical care is virtually non-existent at Medical City. The nurses are clueless, rude, and make sure that people feel miserable about coming here and seeking care. The doctors are also no less. They hate working here and make sure that everybody knows it. I don't recommend visiting this place for seeking care.

My mother had a wonderful hospital experience here. She was admitted here with high fever and dehydration. The staff took excellent care of her. They made sure that she was comfortable during her stay here. The doctors and nurses were great, had excellent bedside manners. The doctor made it a point to come and check on her frequently. Thanks to the wonderful care provided by these great souls, my mother recovered from her illness very quickly and is now doing fine
