The asthma management program at TB was such an eye opener. My 5 year old was born with asthma and the doctors then said we needed to do something about it because it could get worse over the years. Whenever I hear a program with the word asthma in it, I sign us up for it. By my son also seemed to enjoy this program, it wasn’t your typical boring kind of program. Really engaging and a lot was learned- not just by me, but by my son.

The Texas Presbyterian is one of a kind- they have the best doctors in Dallas with very methodical and smart nurses. The house keeping staff are sweet, they won’t rudely awaken you if you’re sleeping and come back when you’re awake (true story that happened with me at Kindred). You won’t feel like a patient at this hospital. The nurses were telling me about their lives, the doctors were cracking jokes with me. It felt like a piece of home, and as an immigrant, I can’t tell you just how much that meant to me.

Also a special thanks to Dr. C, you were very helpful and informative for my recent surgery. It’s always comforting to have surgery done by someone you know will take good care of you. That’s what they do at this hospital: build a relationship with you so it becomes easy for you to leave your life in the hands of other human beings. They are true Godsends, I’ve been recommending this practice to all my friends ever since. Love!

If you are looking for a place to deliver, then don’t give it a second thought. We booked a room at Texas Presbyterian right away. Especially first timers because the OBs here are very sensitive to that and don’t make fun of you or criticize you. I am a young teenage mother and I was tired of the ridicule I was getting at other hospitals. But over here, the OB was very sweet with me and even told me how her sister had a baby when she was 18 too. Love this place!

My grandmother has been having breathing trouble of late now that she’s in her 70s and it’s been getting worse over the past few weeks. On Friday, the 15th we were woken up by the wheezing coming from her room, she couldn’t breathe and was blue. My mother and I immediately rushed her to the ER at Texas Presbyterian and got her admitted. Even though it wasn’t as rushy at the time, it took us a good 1.5-2 hours to see a doctor and then another 3 hours to get her own room.

So basically we were all up the entire night and had to go to work the next day. I took the day off and stayed in the room with my grandma. She was not looking any better but the services at this hospital were very good. For some reason the doctor that treated her last night was nowhere to be found- I always assumed it was one doctor per patient and they had to keep checking up on their patients.

But two nurses kept coming in checking her vitals, writing some stuff down on their notepads and leaving. Pretty sure they were nursing students. Anyway, at night we all ate the icky hospital food and were dozing off before she started wheezing again. Only this time, she was freaking out and crying simultaneously. We found out later that she felt like she was going to die.

We called out for the nurses who rushed in, took a look at her and froze. It was the weirdest thing. I yelled at them and asked them what they were doing. One of them started to cry. The other one, who was the braver one amongst the two, stated that they weren’t prepared for this situation. I was shocked. We came in for that very reason and they claim they weren’t “prepared?” What exactly did they need to prepare for it?

I rushed outside and asked for a doctor at the reception. They said that the only working physician was a nurse practitioner and that she was on the 1st floor. I immediately asked them to do something because my grandmother couldn’t breathe. Thankfully the nurse practitioner was on her way upstairs and came into the room.

In another ten minutes, my grandmother was back to normal, still a little out of breath, but she stopped crying, which was a good sign. I asked the nurse practitioner where all the doctors were and she said there were no other doctors in that night. I get cost-cutting but is that safe? To not have any doctors in, that too at night when most of the ER cases come along? Very stunning.

If they make any medical errors during treatment they will do everything to cover it up. Or even worse, make it look like it was your fault. NOT. COOL.

It’s funny how one good experience can really seal the deal for you. My first baby was delivered at the ever so amazing L&D unit at Texas Presbyterian and what can I say, I’ve never felt the urge to go elsewhere. And I’ll tell you, each time, it was better than the next. I have had four kids in the last 10 years and all of them were delivered right here (two of them in the exact same room!) Two were cesareans and the anesthesiologist knows me by name. The doctors and nurses are AMAZING.

The Women’s specialty surgical center comes under Texas Presbyterian, doesn’t it?
I was SO pleased by the service over here, I knew as soon as I got back home I HAD to write a review about it.
Very affluent people who are dealing with you.
They treat you with the utmost care And have the best state of the art technology- which is definitely reassuring.
The parking is also convenient, you won’t get lost and there’s always enough for guests also. You can park across from the building too.

The medical service at TBH is appreciable, worth noticing. Also worth mentioning that it is cleaner than most hospitals I’ve been to in Dallas. The staff are very friendly, you can easily strike up a conversation with anyone who works here. Follow-up visits are normally nightmares for me, but I didn’t mind it as much over here. The helpful staff and the kind doctor may have had something to do with that. There was no trouble parking which was a major relief for my wife too. All in all, great.
