I went to the ER on a Sunday morning because I was scared to death that I had another Staph infection. Was going to go to a Doc in a box and wish I would have. First I will say this facility is clean and well kept. Everyone I encountered at first was very nice and understanding. Fast forward to a DR who didn't introduce himself when he walked in and asks what's my problem with no eye contact. I explain to him that I was bit the day before and now having the same symptoms as a staph 10 years ago. It was on my left thigh & he's standing on my right & he says ok lets see it. I take the sheet off of it and he literally glanced at it and shrugged. He didn't lean over, get close, touch it or anything. Then he says can't tell if it's a bite or staph so I'll give you some antibiotics and walks out the door. The nurse looking embarrassed says I can get dressed & walks out. I didn't even have my pants on before the lady w/ a cart came in & handed me a bill for $399.20 & asked if I wanted to make a payment. I really didn't feel I had received $400 worth of service personally but I paid $50 & went home to cry feeling like the DR didn't care at all. A few weeks later I receive another bill for over $1200. I have called the # to request an itemized statement 7 times and still haven't received one. I will not give this hospital another dime until they can tell me what exactly I am paying for. Just stay away from this place, seriously. (a week ago)

No compassion for patients! My 86 year old father was in and ordered breakfast. When it came, two people came in, one to draw blood and then one for a breathing treatment, neither one cared that his breakfast was there, by the time they were finished the breakfast was cold, cold grits with a clump of cheese on top, cold scrambled eggs, and cold toast with luke warm coffee! How appetizing!!! The coffee machine downstairs does not work, and the soda machine by the cafe only had three drinks in it. The cafe is closed on Sunday's. What this hospital needs is more competition, maybe then they would up their game!!! Shame on the State of Florida for limiting competition in this industry !!! (a month ago)

This entire hospital from the time I arrived through my entire five day stay treated me like a 'prince". The doctors, nurses, CBS's were absolutely outstanding. Of course, I have been under st. Vincent's care since 1999. I would recommend this hospital to anyone. (a month ago)

If I could I would give 3 and a half stars. My review is based mainly on the attending physician at the time of my stay. In no way does it involve the surgeon, she is not affiliated with St. Vincent's, that performed my laparoscopic surgery. Last Tuesday I had my gallbladder removed in an outpatient surgery. I was suppose to go home the same day but my surgeon had me stay due to alot of pain. As far as the nurses went it was 50/50. Some were very polite and reminded you not to hesitate to ask for anything. Others seemed upset that you had the audacity to ask for ice. On the day I went home I was lucky enough to have some wonderful nurses. As far as the physician goes I was honestly blown away, as was my family, by his lack of effort or concern. For some reason my face became very red and hot a few hours after surgery. I kept an eye on it and brought it up to my nurse. She seemed concerned and said she would notify the doc. When the doc finally came in it was long enough to say you're free to go and as he started to leave I said what about my face? His response *shrugged shoulders* "I don't know what is causing that. If it doesn't go away you should follow up with a skin doctor." I couldn't believe his response! Couldn't he at least venture a guess as to what would cause that?! Then I found out he changed my pain meds prescription. I'm doing just fine on what I was given, but I dont understand why he felt he had the right, and need, to change my prescription. Unfortunately this left me with a negative enough experience that I would not return. I am suppose to have a future procedure there and I will be contacting my doctor to see about changing the location. (a week ago)

The best in the area. Leaves OPMC in the dust by far. The people that left bad reviews must never have been to OPMC. (3 weeks ago)
