GF had to spend several days in the Sycamore Shoals ICU for a mystery ailment. She was treated well by an awesome staff. They were attentive to her needs, and it was a pleasant surprise to me when they ensured that I did not face any inconvenience while I waited upon her. They were very caring and humane and explained everything that was being done on my love. The doctors who handled her care were also fantastic. They were very courteous and polite. Thanks to these competent folks, my GF is on the mend now. You guys rock…Stay the same way, and keep smiling. God Bless

Sycamore Shoals Hospital is an amazing hospital. This is the only hospital where you go in with a particular issue and walk out with the same issue. I am amazed at how the doctors and nurses can be so consistent in misdiagnosing or even non-diagnosing a particular problem.

I went in with a hip pain….made to wait for nearly three hours in the most uncomfortable chair in the world. A doctor sees me for nearly a minute and what does he prescribe --- rest, warm compresses and OTC Tylenol.

This is not the first time; this is a regular feature here.

Guys, if we want to take OTC Tylenol, why the hell should we come here in the first place….

An ambulance rushed me to Sycamore Shoals Hospital after I was involved in a bike accident. I was in tremendous pain, and there were a few deep cuts which had led to massive blood loss. The moment we reached the hospital, the nurses took over, and one lovely lady said, “Chin up, you are going to walk out of here pretty soon.” Now that was so reassuring. I was taken to the ER and then OR and then shifted to the ICU and finally the floor. Everyone whom I met during my stay was excellent and wonderful! They constantly checked on me and also inquired if my wife or I needed anything. I will recommend this outstanding hospital for everyone!

I cannot believe that the nurses at Sycamore Shoals Hospital can be so stupid!!!! I was between insurances, so I had decided to pay out of my pocket. As I was waiting in the room, I overheard two nurses talking about me and deciding that since I did not have any insurance, I might even run away without paying. How did I know it was about me….the ER was deserted when I came, and there was nobody back in the room.

Ladies, it would be better if you shut your bloody mouth and do the work for which you are being paid.

Incredible staff!!!

Our family has been a regular here, and we have never been disappointed with either the staff or the quality of service. I have three kids and aged parents at home, and whenever any medical issues crop up, they are at Sycamore Shoals Hospital. The nurses and doctors are very knowledgeable and know what is happening, especially in terms of treatments or procedures. I can call them whenever I want and I would get the accurate information. Thanks so much, Sycamore Shoals for employing such excellent staff!!!
