Downright Ridiculous!!!!

I was asked to report to the hospital at 3:30 PM for an MRI; I arrived at 3:00. Was asked to wait in the room for some time, which stretched to nearly an hour. I got up and asked the nurse the reason for the delay. She feigned ignorance and promised me that she would get back after checking…she never returned.

My patience was running thin, and I was pacing around. The director walked by. He was a kind soul. He stopped and asked what the matter was. I told him everything. He also promised to check and get back and went off. He came after 30 minutes and informed that the said MRI had been delayed by nearly two hours due to some issues. He offered a rescheduled the next day morning, which I gladly accepted.

My main grouse is that why did it take the director to come and tell me what happened. Even a nurse could have come and told the truth. I would have accepted it. Very pissed off by the attitude of the entire staff, except the director.

Update: I underwent the MRI without any hiccups. But one bad experience is enough…not sure if I would be reporting back any time soon.

I recently had major surgery, and the whole experience was awesome. The doctors, nurses, surgical nurses, surgeons, and the support staff – all were great. The team involved in my care was excellent and responsive. The nurses in the ICU and the floor were knowledgeable and trained to respond to any situation immediately. I had an unforeseen complication, but these exceptional folks were able to nip it in the bud.

The surprise package was excellent food. You have a host of options, and all of them were delicious.

An excellent place to seek care

The staff at North Austin Medical Center is accommodating, efficient, fast, and courteous! Went into the ED for a minor emergency, was pleasantly surprised by the excellent care which I got at this place. I was in and out of this hospital within an hour. Very impressed.

I used to be scared of hospitals. I also read reviews on various forums, especially negative reviews, before making any decision, and it further increases my fear of hospitals.

As luck would have it, I had severe pain in my stomach, and my wife brought me to the ER. All my fears went away after seeing the care which the ER team provided. The registration was done quickly, and I was taken in within minutes and then back to the room in minutes. The doctor was beside me in minutes and manually evaluated me and diagnosed me with appendicitis. He ordered tests which confirmed his diagnosis. Surgery was scheduled for the next day morning, and it went off without any hiccups.

The way I was treated has changed my opinion about hospitals. If I get such excellent care every time, then I would not hesitate to come here for any medical needs
