Must say that the anesthesiologist who handled my case did a brilliant job with me. I remember in the past I’ve had issues with two of the anesthesiologists who were assigned to my surgeries, and they both ended horribly. I had allergic reactions both times and this time I made it very clear to them that I would not take it. The anesthesiologist seemed confident in herself, which was a good sign, but she told me that I had nothing to be worried about. I woke up feeling perfectly fine, just a little sore from the surgery. The doctors were also top notch and the surgeons were plain hilarious.

I would give this hospital a -1 rating if I could, it is so useless. It’s a different thing to complain about bad service and whatnot. But when a hospital cannot perform the basic functions it is EXPECTED to perform normally, that’s when you know you have to get out of there. And in many situations, this is possible. Alas, not so much in mine.

I had to get a surgery done after discovering a complication in my intestines. After the surgery all looked well and I was sent into the recovery room. But a few hours later, I passed out and found out later on that it was due to a surgical mistake performed by the new surgeon who had moved from China. I was so close to suing this hospital- I mean what kind of incompetence is that? A surgeon cannot carry along a surgery properly, then what else can you expect from this kind of a hospital?

The hospital’s lawyer came to my room later on and explained what had happened. He seemed to be the only reasonable one and understood that it was a difficult time for me. But if I had to keep coming back to this hospital to get treated for a procedure that they screwed up in the first place, I needed compensation. The lawyer said that we could work something out and disappeared.

I waited for another day until the surgeon who screwed up gave me a visit. He apologized for his mistake, which was a pleasant surprise. I’m not used to doctors apologizing ever (my dad was a neurologist) but yeah, I said apology accepted but only if they compensated for the mistake. I was so close to getting his license suspended but they said that they would bring up the case with the board members of the hospital. So well and good.

Also a kind request to the nursing staff: be a little more friendly. Granted that I had created a hostile environment, what with shouting about being incompetent to a surgeon, but your job is to make patients feel comfortable within the depressing walls of the hospital; which is irrespective of whether you like the patient or not.

The ED at Suburban is perfection. I had to make a quick visit because of excessive knee pain and they sent me back with non-narcotic medicine in less than an hour. What quick and effective service.

I was admitted here for over a month and I thought eventually I’d grow out of this place. From day 1 they treated me like the queen that I was and was at my beck and call constantly. The medical assistants came in daily to check up on me and ensure that I didn’t need any bedding changes or a change of clothes. The nurses were always looking out for me, making sure I hadn’t turned over in my sleep again and bringing me food. Very friendly place and a nice spot to conduct complicated surgical procedures. I trust these doctors with my life (I have twice already).
