I am a professional athlete, so I get injured frequently and as you can guess I am a regular visitor to the ER. I have been to the Tampa Community Hospital ER and their outpatient department for undergoing physical therapy for a torn muscle for ten weeks. Every single person whom I have interacted with was professional, courteous and had an attitude to help patients. The techs were great, the nurses were wonderful and the doctors very friendly. The outpatient physical therapy was also great. The therapists used ultrasonic therapy as part of their efforts to maximize recovery in minimum possible time. Thanks to them, I am on my feet now and back to my sports in just 12 weeks after an injury that could have taken six months to a year to heal.

I had a horrible experience at Tampa Community Hospital ER when I went there a few months back. The on-call doctor, I think it was Dr. Foppe, did not have the time to prescribe complete diagnostic testing. I was sent home with an incomplete list of testing with a caveat of following up with my PCP.

I did not realize this till I met my PCP who was shocked to see the script. He sent me to another ER where I had complete imaging and it was found that I had four clots – three in my right leg and one in the mesenteric artery. Luckily, it was spotted before it could do further damage to my body. Please avoid going to such a hospital for your emergencies and in the unforeseen consequence of having nowhere else to visit, ensure that the doctor is not this idiot. He claims he is an emergency medicine specialist, but by his work, tone and tenor….he do not even deserve to be in the housekeeping staff.

I hate to write reviews about anything, especially hospitals because I believe that every single person’s hospital "experience" is that – a hospital experience. But I do believe that one should not compromise when your health is at stake.

I had to visit Tampa Community Hospital ER for urgent medical care, and this was the nearest hospital... I was triaged and admitted to a bed the moment it was ready. Every single staff member whom I interacted with were warm, friendly, caring and most importantly knowledgeable and professional. During the time that I was in the hospital, I did not feel I was just a number for them. I was taken good care of. Coming to the facility, the hospital was very clean and surprisingly, the hospital food was not that bad.

The only issue I faced was billing. Nothing major, just that the billing person comes to my bed in the dead of night and asks me when I would make the co-payment. I would have done so the moment I was discharged…if you ignore that, then this is a good hospital.

If you have an emergency and you are guided to Tampa Community Hospital then please ignore the advice and drive a little further and check-in at a real hospital. This place is a joke. The ER staff is very rude, least professional and lacks empathy. My niece was admitted to the ER in the morning for severe leg pain, and she was seen by a doctor at 6:00 in the evening. Would have glossed over it if the ER was choc-a-bloc with patients, but this was a deserted ER. They made her feel worse coming into the ER.

The most frightening part was when they imaged the wrong leg. My niece had right leg pain, and they imaged the left leg. This despite her telling them as well as my sister reminding them that it is the wrong leg. This is a terrible place to receive medical care.

I had a slip-and-fall and was driven to this hospital. I have to say that the hospital ER staff was very good. They quickly triaged me, and the doctor came to visit me within 15 minutes. He ordered some tests; the hospital did it, I got an okay and was discharged. I was in and out within three hours. Way to go, Tampa Community Hospital.

I had undergone surgery at this hospital around five months back, and the experience at the hospital was the best. My doctor, I believe it was Dr. Osvaldo Padron, and his team was wonderful. They took good care of me right from the beginning to the end. While my boyfriend had anxiety attacks while waiting for me, I never had any issues because my stay was comfortable. Oh, BTW, they ensured that my boyfriend was also made comfortable until my release. A big Thank You to the entire team.
