Ratings for St. Michael's Hospital
I've had several issues treated at St. Mike's. For the most part, it's old and in need of an overhaul. I do believe there is a newer section but, my conditions have required the older sections. I wish that I could have better understood the staff (heavy accents or broken English) but it is what it is. Wait times, even when booked are horrendously long so bring a book or some entertainment with you to occupy your time. Though cleaned, the wear and tear on the old hospital makes it appear "dirty" even when it may not be. It's also somewhat depressing to be in such conditions. However, I will say that my experiences with the doctors have been brief, clinical/cold feeling but, what I've needed done, has been done and done well for the most part. SMH has a great reputation in Toronto so don't hesitate to be referred there if necessary but, do your own research as to what you're there for if it isn't an ER situation. Docs and staff come and go from SMH as they move upwards in their fields. Know your doctors and be your own advocate (in any medical situation/hospital today). If you can't advocate for yourself, bring someone along with you who can be one for you.
Visited this hospital for eye care. All the staff from administration, nurse to doctors are all extremely kind and professional. I have a very complicated eye problem of glaucoma and uveitis which was very badly managed by an eye institute in Vaughan. Dr. Peter Girschek stabilized my eye pressure. Furthermore, uveitis Dr. Larissa Derzko-Dzulynzky and infectious disease specialist Dr. Gough diagnosed my eye problem and put me on anti-viral drug. I am now so hopeful and their professional treatments really made a world of difference. I feel really sorry of comments by those patients who experienced otherwise. I highly recommend anyone to seek medical help at St. Michael's Hospital.
Given how they botched my eye surgery and later postponed, then lied about, changing kidney apptmt with creepy "Doctor" Kamel, it seems apparent that this hospital is actually being run by a bunch of ignorant homeless people as a means of keeping them busy.... ripping the rest of us off!!! Disgraceful that the Catholic church is associated with this mess that does not deserve to be called "hospital". Stay away at all costs....or incompetence may cost you your life
St. Michael's Hospital Gynecology Clinic, Toronto, Ontario Canada My mother had a doctor's appointment with the St. Michael's Hospital Gynecology Clinic. Unfortunately, I could Not go with her right away this morning, but I did meet her there later on in the day. I just want to Thank Doctor Dana Soroka for the time that she took to see my mother, Mrs. Helene Shore today back on Wednesday, July 5, 2017. Furthermore, I took some pictures of ME and my mother working at their Reception Desk in the Gynecology Department. Sincerely yours, Howard Paul Shore Visitor Executive, Volunteer Writer For Google And Tripadvisor Websites /HPS
- Not my first visit to St. Mike's but hopefully will be my last - nasty and incompetent 'care'. - 14 hours to be awarded a room while actively bleeding internally w/ cause unknown after ER admission - Room off ER cold (about 15C), hard rain outside which was coming into the room and pooling on the floor - 28 Hours without food - kept saying I was not being ordered to go without for medical necessity, that I could eat if I wanted to - just never gave me anything, just a saline IV - When finally got a room, my roommate had his wife there (all night) who used our washroom even though there is a sign forbidding it. They were discharged next day - Transferred to another room without explanation - found out later my new roommate had been put in isolation, but only learned this from another patient who saw the sign on my former room. - Put in room with a large man who was talking to himself, muttering about 'cutting his skin' and 'jesus christ' told them I did not feel safe there and went to visitor's lounge; told nothing they could do. no sleep that night - IV not changed, dripping 'serum' onto the bed sheets IV nurse said not put in correctly and put in new one. First injection site had issues as my hand swelled up until my knuckles disappeared; they told me it was just a normal occurrence and their solution was to disconnect the IV - Big scary guy discharged next day and my new roommate was the same guy that had caused me to be transferred out of my room - apparently not needing isolation after all - Each time a nurse or doctor came in and took a history from me they had apparently not looked at the chart or it had been recorded incorrectly, as they had wrong information. For example, they kept asking about "shortness of breath"; I told them each time "only on exertion., i.e., attempting to walk down the hall had me out of breath. My final discharge notes only states "no shortness of breath" - guess I'm ok as long as I'm laying in bed! - AVOID THIS HOSPITAL IF POSSIBLE
I went to St Mikes, diagnosed anaemic ,given blood and iron transfusions, and colonoscopy appt. 4 days prior I went to Albion Clinuc where the Dr said 'just the 'flu'! I had no symptoms of 'flu! I was falling down weak, age 75. Sent home! Refused to check my blood. At St Mikes ; days later hg was 62, I had lost 1/2 my blood. I have never been treated with such kindness and efficiency,, also follow up appt. St. Mikes? Truly the best.
Avoid the inpatient mental health unit whenever possible. The majority of nursing staff there stigmatize and judge the patients as much as the rest of the world. They treat people with psychological distress pleading for help as badly behaving children, not as needing skillful treatment and compassion. All they do is bring meds. One strong (non-violent) expression of disagreement and the 'rent-a-cop' security (who are literally dressed exactly as Toronto Police Officers in order to intimidate) are called to help bully the patient into submission. Nothing else. Group treatment is gone, there is no quiet area, a piano can be plunked on at all hours, showers are cold...the place is crazy-making.
