What a disappointment the Er was- do they even care about the sick patients they ask to rot in the waiting room. I believe no hospital makes someone wait for 5+ hours just to see a doctor. After waiting for 3 hours I was itching so bad to leave but I figured the 3 hours I spent waiting would be in vain. So I waited and waited. Until 5 hours past and then I held it in no longer. Gave a piece of my mind to the nurse who was at the reception and she didn’t seem to care. She claimed everyone complained about it but they were understaffed. But if you’re understaffed it’s no excuse to desert patients like this.

Given the circumstances I was happy to have my surgery done here.
It’s never a pleasant experience but at least the nurses did all they could to make it as painless as possible.
Sometimes it’s the care and affection I see in them that makes me happy- like there’s still some hope in humanity.
This is one of those hopsitals that really made me reflect on life. And humanity as a whole.
Thank you Medstar Franklin Hospital for housing such amazing medical professionals who really know how to take care of patients.
Special props to everyone who took the efforts to make me feel more comfortable. Nurses Robin and Nancy especially for being with me through the whole thing.

The wait at the er is crazy long I can’t believe this. Isn’t there some osrt of system that works out a fair amount of waiting time? Cuz I’m pretty sure asking a patient to wait for 3 hours is just inhumane. Completely lost my impression about this hospital, a triage system is long overdue and please get some more staff.

When I got the call that my husband was in a car accident I was in a state of complete disbelief and don’t know how I managed to drive myself to the hospital. The meds told me they were taking him to Medstar Franklin. We are new to the city so I didn’t know if that was a good hospital or not.

When we got to the ER department they saw my husband and got right to action. Didn’t waste a second, the front desk woman checked him in, the nurse started his primary check and all was done fastly. After getting into the room there wasn’t any motion for the longest time. Just a lot of people walking outside the door and no one coming insde.

I checked with the nurses from time to time until finally two doctors came inside the room at once with a few nurses behind them. Not sure if waiting for 1.5 hours for a doctor’s attention in an ER btw is a good thing or not, but whatever. They asked me to wait outside and it was the longest wait of my life. They had to perform surgery on him and they shifted him to a different ward- again very fast.

I was scared they would leave me out of the loop because I’m so tiny to begin with but the surgeon/doc/nurse- whoever- always made sure to inform me about the whereabouts of my husband. This was a good sign and despite the fact that there were many complications post the surgery I will never bad mouth this hospital.

They saved my husband’s life and for that I owe them my life. Also the nurses here are very sweet, not like the rumors I’ve heard about nurses being rude and catty all the time. My husband is all healed up now btw.

Been struggling with digesting my food for so many years. My family kept telling me to consult a colon doctor to check out what the issue was. I finally did it and thank god I did. It wasn’t even that bad. Turns out Ineeded rectal surgery. It was painful and stressful at the time of course. But now that it’s done I feel so much better. Can’t thank Dr. RJ enough for his professionalism and guidance.

My wife and I have been looking for the ideal spot to give birth to our first born and the search is finally over. After an exhausting list of 19 shortlisted hospitals we finally chose Medstar Franklin because the vibe was so cheerful. The OBs were feeling it, the nurses were feeling it, and boy were we feeling it. After our first appointment we didn’t even have to consider another place because we were so sold on it. Love this hospital and every appointment we’ve had since. My wife is due next month so I’ll be back to write a review then. Until then, 5 stars.

I like how well this hospital is run. They have the perfect case management team working for them that takes care of any issues you may have. Also the security over here is the best in town. They don’t randomly yell at you for blocking the entrance, very polite people who explain the rules decently. Very happy with my experience. Peace out.

Unbelievable hospital- it is like a hospital in a third world country but maybe service over there would be better. Dear god the kind of ignorance, the arrogance, the ill treatment. It’s just too much!!!
