This is one of the most accessible hospitals to get to especially in case of an emergency. I usually never go to hospitals but during an emergency my sister rushed me to Sibley and I am thankful for their service.

When I say that I didn’t have to wait for a second in the er room on a Tuesday morning that’s enough to tell you how easy it is to keep your appointment in a timely fashion at Sibley Memorial- literally something you cannot experience at any other hospital in the country.

It was a rather smooth procedure from the start- even though we walked right in we had a tiny hiccup with one of the housekeeping staff- but we brushed passed it because hello, zero waiting time. The rest of the staff were very welcoming. It felt less like a hospital and more like a rehab center or something, except very informal.

They asked us to explain the issue in running English and the nurse practitioner assigned to me did not ridicule anything I said or anything. After filling her in on what my condition was she even gave me a few tips on how to battle the condition on my own (which have been very helpful for the record).

The fact that a medical professional is giving me unsolicited advice and that too without charging me was surprising to say the least but that’s why I’m writing this review about Sibley memorial because I truly had a good time here. Except for that one snarky janitor everyone else was very generous and kind.

The er physicians were were very knowledgeable and wise. They had their opinions but waited for me to finish, didn’t interrupt me and that was something I thanked them for later. So few doctors actually listen to their patients.. anyway thank you to the entire team at Sibley . Your care and compassion towards the patients is definitely reassuring.

I think the maternity ward at Sibley deserves a special shout out for being so aweseome. Newly renovated so a lot more spacious and clean. It looks brand new in fact. Since the last time there are more nurses to help out personally. The food at the maternity ward is decent- ingestible. If any improvement, should be for parking space. There’s none and very expensive when you find any room.

On the 30th of March I decided that my mortal enemy would be Dr. Potts at Sibley Memorial and to this day I tell all my close friends to stay the hell away from this hospital. No hospital should have these kinds of doctors who don’t care about the state of their patients, the way in which the doctors leave them be- by the way. It’s unbelievable, trust me, I waited in line for more than 5 hours only to have the doctor bark at me and say that there was nothing wrong with me.

So I guess the fact that I was waking up at odd hours at night and puking my guts out was completely normal. This alone made me realize that doctors like Dr. Potts should not be allowed to practice medicine. And for any future doctors who may be reading these reviews, be warned. You may have a degree in medicine but at the end of the day the way you interact with patients matters a big deal. You may think that this has nothing to do with how patients see you but thanks to the boon of internet now you make one blunder and the whole world knows about it. So be careful.

And as for Dr. Potts I have already made an official complaint to the board and they said they would discuss his future with the practice. Doubt there’s any truth to that but at least I’ve done my job of alerting the concerned people. The only good thing about this place is that if you leave within half an hour you don’t have to pay for parking other than that I didn’t enjoy this place even one bit.

The customer service at this hospital is undisputable, unlike any other hospital I’ve seen in the country, no doubt. The way they tend to the customer’s every need is refreshing. Again, something I’ve never seen or experienced before. It was a nice touch to my daughter’s visit to the ER last week. Very thankful for them taking our feedback.

There’s no working around the hospital repairs. It is a very old building so some or the other part is always under repair. You can hear the faint construction noise from your room but it’s not too bad usually. This time though the construction was right outside my window and it started early in the morning.

So that was usually my wake up call *not amused* either way I don’t have many complaints about my time at Sibley’s, they have a great team of doctors that I have grown to like. They follow a rigid time table when it comes to patients, the vitals are taken every morning at 6 on the dot literally to the second.

I also heard someone complain about the hospital food at Sibley’s but honestly for me it wasn’t that bad. Chicken noodle soup was nice, had a zingy touch. Apart from the small technicalities the nurses and doctors are….*chef’s kiss* so good.

They treat patients with dignity and respect, something I don’t find in any other hospital but Sibley’s. A special thanks to nurse Julia for being my constante through my treatment. And to everyone else who helped me during the duration of my stay, many thanks.

“Best experience” at Sibley Memorial- this is exactly what my mother in law told me about her short visit to Sibley Memorial for a pap smear. You’d think for a procedure as simple as that a reaction that big is a bit of a stretch but I ended up going there myself just the day before and I am hooked. Definitely a place you can absolutely rush to in case of an emergency- where you’re guaranteed to be greeted with a broad smile and open arms. Very welcoming staff, not just the medical staff but others also. I enjoyed..
