I was an inpatient at UT Medical Center in February and would like to thank nurse Olivia, who took excellent care of me. She is the best nurse out there in the entire country. She was very friendly yet strict, and highly knowledgeable. She took real good care of me. Thanks to her, I had a comfortable stay at the hospital. This review would not be complete without mentioning the housekeeping staff who maintained cleanliness in the room. The shift changes did not result in any slackness. Thank you, everyone, for ensuring that I was taken good care of

UT Medical Center has some very good nurses, and then there are those whose only aim is to ensure that the reputation of the hospital goes to dogs. They talk loudly, discuss patient details in public with scant respect to HIPAA. These nurses should know that we are sick, but definitely not stone deaf.

UT Medical Center is one amazing hospital staffed by an outstanding staff. Though there is a little wait time in the ER, it is much bearable when compared to other hospitals in the area. The nurses and doctors are very friendly, knowledgeable, and a pleasure to work with

Best hospital experience ever! This hospital is great because of its wonderful nurses. I was an inpatient for some days at this place and at no time did I feel that they treated me as a burden. They treated me with respect and TLC. They were attentive to all my needs, and by the time I was discharged, I had built up some wonderful longlasting friendships. One can definitely see that the people out there love their job, and it reflects on the quality of care. Bless you all
