This hospital does not follow any rules. I had a baby and was extremely sick after an emergency c section. They could get me to stop being sick after 8 hours. Because I couldnt hold my baby as my head was in a bucket the nurses said i needed to stop being sick because my baby needed me. Thats when my husband stepped in and called the doctor to come which the nurses never did to begin with. Very bad situation and very sad that they made things worst by sending me home to early and we were taken back the next day. An hour after I said something to the doctor about the mistakes they made HR and the VP were in my room to talk about the situation. This should never have happend to begin with and they tried to just brush things off.
Visited Marham Stouffville hospital in the emergency department only. All staff I came into contact with were very caring and friendly which was a change from my last visit in 2014. Yes the waiting room is full at times and everyone wants to be first but that's not reality. I first went to a walk in clinic and that doctor wrote me a note and recommended I get to emergency ASAP because it was beyond what he could do at the clinic. At emergency they not only attended to my primary problem but redressed a wound I did not come in for and instructed me on how to car for it. How great was that. I got a speedy xray and a referral to a specialist since my emergency was very complicated. Again, all staff right from the first where very caring during my extreme emergency. Thank you staff.
Sat in emergency for 6 hours with my elderly parent before being seen by a doctor. Only to be told they could not do any X-ray or scan for dibilatating back pain my elderly mother was suffering with. In fact no real assessment performed do determine what the underlying issue might be. Sent home with a prescription for Tylenol 2 and told someone would call for an appointment for a scan. 6 hours to tell us that- really!!? Not impressed. And also not impressed with the lack of compassion and care demonstrated by the emergency doctor.
I had visited MSH emergency for my kids couple times in the past and the doctors in emergency are inexperienced and unprofessional. I thought MSH may have improved in the past several years so I visited MSH emergency last night but found that the doctors in emergency are still inexperienced. Don't waste your life in MSH, go somewhere else.
this is about the worst hospital you can go to, If you value your life - stay away. Wife discovered a lump in her breast and did biopsy and Surgeon at breast centre casually tells us to come back for surgery. Thank god I thought of "Best Doctors" for a second opinion, who advised we see a Medical oncologist and pursue NeoAdjuvant therapy. Remember your OHIP card is equal but you are not - Had to force the GP's hand to refer us to Princess Margaret hospital which aligned treatment with Best Doctors. Please, if you value a life - stay away
I went to the emergency room for a concussion and the experience was extremely bad. The nurse and stuff were condescending and not helpful. If you do not have ohip, you have to pay upfront otherwise they will not even arrange you in line to see a doctor. I didnt have enough money with me when I went in and had to wait for my friend to bring me the money to get arranged in line and waited for another 3 hours to see the doctor. Also, they do not deal with any insurance AT ALL. Other hospitals however will bill the insurance company directly. the doctor was irresponsible too. He simply asked me to touch my nose and then said i can go back to work right away. the next day I had extreme headache, loss of balance, and feel nauseated. I went to another hospital for check up and the doctor said that I should rest for at least a week before going back to work. also, that touch of my own nose cost dealing with unpleasant stuff, 3+ hours of wait time & $750
