Every doctor I encountered was super nice to me. Even the woman stocking the room asked if I needed anything. I was told I hope you feel better soon by woman who took my CT scan. It wasnt just a statement it was genuine. May sound cheesy but it made me feel very at ease even if it was going to be a serious outcome for me. I appreciated their help and would definitely visit again with any other issues. Thanks to these people for helping people and having compassion. (a week ago)

My dad went in for a stroke. While in the ER (for roughly 5 hours), no one really came in to talk to us. His BP was very high and we were all anxious. While I wouldn't say poor care, I'd say no one really cares! However, Nurse Jim on 6N was outstanding! Maybe hes had a loved one in the hosp? Maybe he's the only one that really cared? Maybe He's a gift from God? I think Mercy's bedside manner is very poor and their name says NOTHING about their care! (in the last week)

This place is phenomenal and would take any of my LOVED ones back over and over again!! Absolutely LOVE the staff! They treated us so wonderful, with love and utmost respect. Of we had concerns, questions or anything they were there to help and answer them!! Thank-you from the bottom of our hearts Mercy Medical Staff!! Much love and respect!! (a month ago)

The actual care by Dr Harrison and his immediate staff is great. He called me personally to discuss a concern the after a further test he called me with good news so I could be relieved over a long weekend. However dealing with a two week wait to get a test schedule and other support staff issues regards prescriptions is a common complaint I have heard from others. I recently contacted Mercy with a concern and they did not follow up. (3 weeks ago)

I had the privilege of learning as an RN student at this campus. Although I had one bad experience with a nurse treating me poorly, the vast majority of the staff I encountered were kind, compassionate, competent professionals. Thank you for an awesome clinical experience. (in the last week)
