MUSC has a huge range of specialties. They are top tier in many specialty services. Children's, ENT, research. The nursing has always been top notch. They make everyone feel comfortable, the patient as well as the family. The life specialists are so wonderful at making children comfortable when here for procedures. I wouldn't go to any other providers or take my family anywhere else. (2 weeks ago)

They take really great care of their Patients and their Families. Doctors do their best to figure out and treat issues. (in the last week)

The experience I had at MUSC, in a word, sucked. I was on day three of a pretty severe manic episode (I have been formally diagnosed as bipolar by two different doctors and have since been medicated for it) and literally had to LEAVE WORK and be driven to the hospital by my angel of a boss because it got so bad. I was afraid my medication wasn’t working like it used to because I had a small lapse in taking it due to being busy with work, moving, etc. I was seen by one of the resident doctors who simply told me I was “stressed”. Like I’ve never experienced stress and couldn’t differentiate between the two. He pulled up what was honestly a very childish graph on his phone of what constitutes mania (“you have to be up for at least SEVEN days for it to be mania”) and totally invalidated every concern I had for myself. I felt embarrassed and dumb and just wanted to leave. He said that he assumed I had been in inpatient treatment before (thanks, my guy) and said that that was not something I would want to seek out. He sent me on my way with some papers on how to manage anxiety with deep breathing and meditation which was really just the icing on the cake. This unchecked manic episode progressed into a psychotic break, which had me hospitalized and caused me to miss even MORE work. Rest assured, I did not go to MUSC for inpatient. I understand that ER doctors can’t hit the nail on the head every time, but this was by far the most thoughtless and unprofessional medical experience I have ever had. And to top it all off, I answered all of the cigarette smoking questions honestly, as I wanted them to know all of my medical history so my treatment (or lack thereof) could be as thorough as possible. Now I won’t stop getting calls through an automated MUSC survey about my interest in quitting smoking- which I never expressed during my visit! If I have the choice, I will never return to this hospital again. (a week ago)

will post a more responsive review from a call from the administration office. a technical interm DID NOT give no service. Will respond when I get a call back from MUSC. (4 weeks ago)

This is the Best Hospital is South Carolina. This hospital was the place that Dr. Illagalah and his team saved my saved my life. (3 weeks ago)
