I've received terrible service at this hospital. I was served by a doctor at emerge who not only was very rude and talked down on me but also inconvenienced me more than she was of any help at all. It wasn't until I was seen by a doctor in the fracture clinic that I could get some actual help. Seriously avoid this place at all costs, they're emergency department is a complete mess and it takes at least 6 hours to get any help. In addition, St. Michael's is trying to charge me for treatment i didn't receive even though i've called the accounts receivable department for weeks, the lady behind it is so lazy that she's only answered the phone once and nothing has been done. If you want to contact the accounts receivable department then you will have almost no choice but to leave a message because they don't "take inquiries" in person. Overall i have to say from my experience I would avoid this hospital at all costs and would recommend Toronto General which has much better service.
I came in yesterday to St Michael's Hospital, Emergency, to seek urgent care. I am 35 weeks pregnant, my leg under right knee swell overnight, was red and burning, extremely painful for me to walk on. I spent 5 hours a the hospital, only seeing the doctor for less than 7 minutes. The rest was wait time. I was told that I need an ultrasound for a blood clot, which the doctor has ordered. After 5 hours no word on when my ultrasound would happen or how long the results will take afterwards. The doctor/assisting staff offered no information or assistance. I ended up leaving without any treatment, since I was exhausted, with no food or water all this time. A huge thank you to the doctor, the ultrasound department and St Michael's Emergency!!!! You've been the most caring of all.
I graduated from St. Michael's Hospital School of Nursing in 1974. At that time, St. Mike's was one of the best Hospitals in Canada and I believe that it still is. The Hospital's motto was "What you do to the least of mine, you do to me". I had an ablation to correct a cardiac arrhythmia at St. Mike's in the summer of 2016. I was very impressed with the professionalism, respect, competence and caring of the Doctors and Nurses. The other staff, in general, were pleasant and helpful. The volunteers were wonderful. I was so happy to have the opportunity to experience being a patient . In spite of the many cut backs in Health Care over the past 40 some years, St. Mike's is still doing everything possible to save and improve lives. Basically, the Spirit of St. Mike's is alive and well. I started giving a monthly donation to the Hospital to maintain and improve the gem that is St. Michael's Hospital. I will continue to give the donations as long as I live!
I can't say anything bad about our experience. We were referred from Northern Ontario as my daughter has a rare lung disease. Several tests were run (these were booked appointments) and then we saw the resident respirologist. She reported to the doctor and within a very short time, he informed us that my daughter had been misdiagnosed for 30 years. He said we needed to see and ENT specialist and the next day we saw several levels of doctors. What we received was not the best of news, but at least problems were found that we did not know existed. Another case of misdiagnosis in the north. The staff we delt with were all friendly and very professional. They were a great help to us. As for cleanliness, it wasn't bad but did find one toilet that didn't work. This is a teaching hospital and they exposed as many levels of doctors to my daughter's condition as was possible, which is great so that others can learn from her illness. They may never run into another case like hers, but if they do, they will certainly remember her. Thanks St. Michaels.
I am a patient of the "world class MS clinic". They sell their story to the media as being a patient driven facility that cares for MS sufferers. Couldn't be further from the truth. Neurologist are cold and uncaring. To them you are a research rat and nothing more. The neurologist that stay for longer than 4 years are the worst of the worst . The good ones (most from USA) leave after a year or two since they despise the place. Front staff is incompetent and down right hostile towards the very patients they need to serve. 2-4 hour waits to see the almighty neurologist is common place. Been here a decade and seen 4 neurologist and been switched, forgotten etc. too many times. This is 3rd. world treatment...worse. At least the doctors in the third world are concerned about patients. These guys are more concerned about getting their smug faces in the media. Patients come a distant last. Shame on them. After surviving the disaster known as Dr. Paul O' Connor I didn't think things could get worse, WRONG!!! They did. A lot worse. So much for the 100's of millions of donor money. Went where? To the new Mercedes Dr. Holol bought?
