It’s not the best place to take a loved one to. See, a hospital is supposed to be the place where you don’t have to worry about basic medical procedures- at this hospital, you do not have that guarantee. Not only are the doctors very arrogant, the nurses seem overworked and very careless (which is NOT something you want to see in the medical staff). I think the main problem with this hospital is that they are losing their employees at an alarming rate: and there HAS to be a reason for that. Either retain your good employees or look out for better ones, because Lord knows you’re desperate for new employees at this point. Don’t even get me started with the surgical unit. Best to stay as far away from this hospital as you possibly can- don’t say I didn’t warn you!

If you are confused about where to give birth in San Antonio, look no more for Methodist is literally at your service. They are amazing at what they do, harbor some of the most talented OBs I’ve ever seen and really care about the bettering of patients. Despite how complicated your pregnancy may be, the OBs here are very brave and are capable of doing anything- recommend them with no reservations. Have had two successful deliveries until now and should I have more, they will be here- no question about that.

My daughter gave birth at the Methodist hospital and she wanted a water birth. We also needed a midwife who was the most helpful to my daughter when she was giving birth. Even though the water birth procedure cost quite a bit: we needed to get all the required equipment and what not, but at the time, my daughter felt it was too painful and wanted to take an epidural. However, the midwife continued to persuade her and convince her that she could do it if she dug deep into her heart and found the courage.

Even though at the time, my daughter was extremely hostile and angry, at the end of it, she was happy to have done it without any pain killers. See, that is kind of a tradition that has been going on in my family: none of us have had C-sections or taken anything to relieve the pain. Child birth is the most natural process in the world and I believe mothers should feel every single emotion they’re going through at child birth.

Now that the main experience part is done, let me tell you what the nursing staff at Methodist is like. They are the sweetest souls, who will be at your beck and call 24x7, even the nurses in the night shift are very sweet and caring. They basically know exactly what they’re doing, they don’t need one reminding them. Next: the hygiene in this hospital is one of the main reasons I believed my daughter should give birth here. It is spotless, which is evidenced by the white, shining floors in the L&D unit alone- if the L&D is like this, I can’t imagine what the other departments are like. Overall, a great experience we had here with all the OBs and nurses. A 5 star rating with no reservation.

Even though I am away with work, in a different state right now, I have complete faith that the surgeons at Methodist will take good care of my hubby and that his surgery will be successful. Have had 3 surgeries here myself, so you can see where my confidence comes from. Great place!

Even though I was super nervous about having a surgical procedure (it was my first surgery ever), Dr. Hale, the head surgeon was the nicest, most understanding doctor who calmed me down and explained everything in the simplest of terms, with illustrations and some examples to aid my understanding. I like how they don’t treat you like children while explaining complicated medical procedures to you, it’s a refreshing perspective. The nursing staff were very supportive and had my back at all times, especially Amy who ended up becoming a close friend of mine. I won’t say I had fun at this hospital visit, because no one likes hospitals, but it was a good hospital experience nonetheless.
