Few people at Phoenixville who deserve major shout outs:
  • Marie something: (sorry I don’t know your last name) but you were the reason I didn’t fall apart into a million pieces when I got the news. It was near the cath lab and Marie worked there. Even though it had nothing to do with her she rushed to comfort me and talked me into selecting the medication option and that’s when I started thinking clearly and ultimately decided to go for medication even though it would be painful. People like you are so few in a hospital as crowded and self centered as this. So thank you!
  • Nurse Chip: Easily one of the funniest people you’ll ever meet. Such a magnetic personality he will make you feel comfortable within the first few seconds of meeting him. I found myself opening up to him about my family on the second day and he was extremely understanding and comforting. That’s one thing if not the only thing that I really liked about this hospital.
  • Lunch lady Sanders: What a fun person to interact with. I only saw her once on my final day of medication when I was leaving I couldn’t help but grab myself a tuna salad sandwich back home because it’d become routine to have one of those for lunch. When I finally met her I was so happy- happy people make good food. Thanks for your well wishes.
The rooms are great, the lobbies are very posh like and I am assuming recently renovated. They have no issues serving you lunch whenever you feel necessary. Normally I have lunch at 12 because of my medication and they are totally up for the challenge. Bring food whenever you need it.

Night shift nurses are very caring. Morning shift are also sweet but not as much as night. Very good service tho always coming and asking if I need something checking my blood pressure and adjusting the IV for me.. never got this kind of treatment at a hospital before than you . Doctors come twice a day to check- good experience.

The worst thing happened here. I’ll never set foot again in Phoenixville because my husband came here last month and never left the hospital. He died last night after battling with a rare blood disease that couldn’t be cured even though the doctors at Phoenixville seemed pretty confident about his progress.

But hey that’s medicine for you. My poor husband was only 32 yet somehow his insides were slowly malfunctioning because of his ailment. We’d been to several medical institutitions and none of them were helpful. At least in private hospitals you get a good room. Phoenixville had nice rooms but the people here were horrible. Not one of them said anything nice to him or asked him to have faith.

It was all just for the sake of working. One of the nurses even yelled at him for dirtying the bed apparently. Heartless bastards. He was having a test drug trial run done on him even though I didn’t want it. They said he was showing progress. And then all of a sudden… never again :’(

Some of the reviews on Yelp are just insane. I read them and started hyperventilating when my PP told me to go to Phoenixville for imaging. Surprisingly I had a very different encounter. Everyone was very polite, directed me towards the labs efficiently. Got all the tests down and didn’t even have to wait. They said they would mail the results to my PP and that was the last time I set foot in there. But I’d definitely go again if need be.

Uncaring and rude staff I say avoid at all costs better to stay where you are and remain suffering atleast they won’t be rude to your face doctors are so rude I can’t believe it. Upon that they are very racist maybe because they are old and one of them is a Russian man who doesn’t look like he likes anyone but whites no one sticks around to even ask you how you’re doing ,, nothing.

A cardiac cath procedure is very complicated and can be a reason for the nerves to go a little nuts but tht was deemed unprofessional behavior. I’m the patient I don’t know why they said I was being unprofessional but it was the hardest thing in my life . Definitely don’t recommend this hospital because even if doctors are qualified and have all the experience in the world what’s the use if they’re mean and impolite to you on your face. They yell at the only nice nurses at the hospital too its like a conspiracy !!!

Never. Again. The worst hospital in the entire country. The healthcare is so god awful I can’t even begin to comprehend how people go there to begin with. Selfish RNs and rude doctors.
