Even though I was ticked off when they said I would have to stay for one night and ended up staying for 4, can’t say that the service is bad. They took good care of me, gotta admit. The doctors were on the game when it came to my treatment, making sure I received everything I needed on time. The nurses were on their feet 24x7, constantly bringing me everything I needed (and oftentimes demanded lol). For someone who is scared of hospitals, I can say that they made sure I was as comfortable as could be in a place I was new to, surrounded by a group of people I’d never met before and basically gambling my life on how competent they are.

I don’t understand how some doctors just want to get rid of patients without actually taking out the time to properly diagnose them. Isn’t it fairly obvious how reckless it is, to simply dismiss a patient because you think you know what you’re doing and don’t want to waste time finding out the actual problem?

I was rushed to St. Josephs due to a strange rash that had developed on my back and while I hadn’t noticed it for a while, my girlfriend told me it looked really bad. When we got to the hospital, we had to wait for a bit but the triage nurse was very kind and asked me if the rash was itchy or hurt me. It didn’t hurt or itch, so I said I was comfortable waiting, considering the insane number of people in the waiting room.

Half an hour later, I was asked to wait inside a room and the doctor would come see me then. Her name was Isha (or something), she was middle eastern I think and a little hostile. She had a hoarse voice and asked me what the issue was. When I told her about the rash and how it seemed to be infected, she inspected it and said it was not harmful and prescribed an ointment to put on it and I would be fine in a week.

Before I could ask any follow up questions, she said “Excuse me,” and rushed out of the room. I was a little weirded out by this- I don’t mind waiting for a doctor but I want to be clear about what I’m putting on my back. Anyway, I made an exception and used the medication, but it turns out, my back started burning after I put the ointment the first time.

Only this time, I didn’t make the mistake of going back to that horrendous hospital, I went to Jackson Memorial, even though it was quite far. Over there, they told me that the rash had in fact been infected and the ointment prescribed was not suitable for it- it only made it more irritable. This made me furious with the doctor who claimed she knew exactly what she was doing and couldn’t even give 2 minutes of her time to double check her prescription. Very frustrated.

Don’t suppose I would consciously recommend this hospital to anyone because it is the worst hospital I’ve ever been to in Tampa (and I’ve personally been to three already). Let me start off by saying, the parking area is very tricky- not even sure it’s a hospital, because of how much you have to drive around in circles. Second of all, the doctors are very know-it-all like, they will laugh in your face if you tell them you’re in pain like they know better. Strongly recommend you dump this place and look elsewhere.

Came to St. Joseph’s yesterday to visit a sick friend and didn’t know where to go. The first person I talked to was a cleaning staff member who kindly directed me towards the head nurse. The head nurse also was very sweet, greeted me with a huge smile and told me where to go. Basically, most of the medical staff that I made contact with was very professional, and I felt like it was a great place to get admitted in if ever I was to get admitted.

Once in my friend’s room, I was able to get a report on what happened, the treatment recommended, and how long the treatment would take to come through. The doctors were very professional, informative, and enthusiastic. It was like everyone was on happy drugs 24x7 lol. Not just that, the cleaning staff does a terrific job in keeping the place spotless, my friend also said her room was cleaned twice daily, and the private bathrooms are always neat too.

I’m not going to lie, I was seriously freaking out when I found out that my average heart burn turned out to be an 80% artery blockage and demanded immediate heart surgery. I had to make a fast decision and had no family with me. I’ve never had surgery done before so you can imagine what I was going through. But the surgeons here are literally THE BEST. They made sure I was very comfy, and performed the surgery very efficiently. When my family flew in, my surgeon explained everything they did and what needed to be done now to recover post surgery. They were very warm to my family and answered all the questions they had.

My father had to undergo an open heart surgery and was extremely nervous about it. The whole family had gathered to support my father, and the surgery was a success. Even though quite a complicated surgery, everything went by smoothly and when my father awoke, all the family members were beside him- making his healing process a whole lot better and faster. Top notch quality here.
