A few months back, I was walking down a block and did not see the freshly fallen snow and had a slip-and-fall accident with a resultant ankle fracture. Crazy happenstance. I was taken to the ED of St. Luke’s Hospital, Kansas City. Obviously, going to the hospital is not something that all look forward to, and I was no exception. However, I was in for a pleasant surprise. From the moment I entered the hospital, the staff took great care of me. They were compassionate and wonderful. Everyone was professional, right from the lady who registered me, to the nurses, the ED doctor, and the Ortho docs, as well as the lovely lady at billing. They made me feel at home. Wonderful. Eternal gratitude and ultimate respect.

When it comes to medical care, convenience is an important factor. Imagine you are down with temperature and need bloodwork, an appointment with specialists, etc. and do not have to run around the place. What if everything can be done under one roof? Cannot fathom that? Well, if you happen to visit St. Luke’s Hospital, you will understand what I am saying.

I had gone to the ED for breathlessness and was asked to get a chest PA and Lateral. I did not have to go to any other place, just a few meters, got the x-ray done, was sent to a pulmonologist who diagnosed me with pneumonia and gave an appropriate prescription. The wonderful thing about this was that I did not have to wait for the transfers, because all the doctors and the tech team shared my reports through computers, so the next doc knew my situation beforehand.

I am not saying only this hospital is computerized, other hospitals are also computerized, but this was pretty seamless. No waiting period etc. which is something I had to face at other hospitals with computerized records. All my aftercare visits were also completed without any type of waiting or hindrances. Parking is also convenient, but they need to do away with the validation for free parking during every visit.

I had one of the worst experience of my life at St. Luke’s Hospital, Kansas City. Brought in my dad after he had a fall on slippery ice. The ER staff was pretty rude and ordered numerous unnecessary tests. They also delayed the MRI for nearly 24 hours because their technician had said that he would only report the next day. I mean these guys also do not have a replacement tech.

The billing department was also pathetic. I was charged excessively and also for two rooms and an MRI because they assumed that we would be spending the night at the hospital and get the MRI done the next day. Sorry, not done…. I had to argue for nearly an hour, and finally, when I told them I am also a doctor and know these things, they relented and cleared all the charges. I took my dad to a nearby hospital where they took real good care of him.

If you love yourself and your loved one, then do not bring them to this piece of garbage.

The St Luke’s team is great. We came to this hospital after our daughter was involved in an accident and had severe injuries. We rushed her to St Luke’s and then the ER team took over. They not only stabilized her while getting all the paperwork done, they got in touch with surgeons and the operations were conducted as soon as possible. After the surgery, she was shifted to ICU, where again the staff was phenomenal!!!! After four days, she was shifted to another floor. All this shifting was done with a lot of patience, expertise, compassion, and professionalism...We could not forget the care that our daughter got at this hospital. Thanks to the wonderful team, my daughter recovered very quickly from her injuries and was back on her feet in three months.

This is the place to go if you want professional care for loved ones or yourself.

I was charged about 100 dollars for a visit with an NP at a St. Luke’s Walk-in clinic, an appointment that lasted less than 10 minutes. Why? Because I am a new patient. GREAT… Thanks to them, this is my first and last visit to St. Luke’s.
