Great experience at NWH MIGS with Dr. Loring and staff. A nurse called every day post-surgery for a week to make sure everything was going good and that meant a lot. On call staff responded quickly and helped alieve some post-surgery nausea. Dr. Loring was great - explained everything in detail and was patient in answering all my questions. I highly recommend! (2 weeks ago)

Waiting room was crazy had to wait like 2 hours with four people in front of me then when I got into the room they was blood on the floor. The good thing the nurses and everybody there were very friendly. Now I go to Lahey Medical Center which is very clean. Little bit more of a drive, but it is worth it. (a month ago)

So Disappointed & Deflated... LITERALLY!!! After having a successful gastric bypass surgery, where I lost 140 pounds, I had the typical cosmetics concerns that come with losing that much weight so quickly. I asked my Gastric Surgeon if he could recommend a Cosmetic Surgeon that he knew & trusted to help me with the next steps of my journey. He promptly gave me Dr. Davidson's office information to contact for a consult appointment. This is where everything goes sour... Procedure 1. Excess skin removed from lower abdomen. I am not SO concerned about the scar that goes from hip to hip & appears to have stopped in a very awkward spot ... BUT I am upset about the 3 inch "wings" I have on the sides of each hip. It looks like a 3 year old tried to wrap a Christmas gift using too much paper at each end, poorly folded the excess paper over and used a ton of tape to cover it up. I am NOT exaggerating... 3 inch wings on each hip that are clearly visible even with clothes on. Procedure 2. Breast Reduction & Breast Lift - VERY DISAPPOINTED!!! Before surgery I had a DD cup size and due to the weight lose they hang low, had loss shape & firmness. During the initial consult, I expressed my desire to reduce the cup size to a "small C cup" as well as lift the breast to attain a "Perky" appearance. Dr. Davidson stated he was confident he would be able to achieve the request as it was not an unreasonable request. HOWEVER, after surgery both of my breasts look like 2 half filled water balloons hanging down, bulbous at the bottom and narrow at the top. Procedure 3. Breast Implants. The right Implant is placed so high towards my shoulder, so far to the right & not centered at all. It was basically placed in my armpit. Because of this placement, my right breast is completely flat and shows no sign of an implant being present at all unless you look far to the right. The left Implant has settled so low it is midway to the bottom of the above mentioned "water balloon". I have no cleavage because neither implants are placed correctly and both of my breasts are flat. Of course I am able to feel the implants if manually move and push my breast up & down, but that's not what I paid almost $25,000 to accomplish. You are probably asking yourself why didn't I go back to Dr. Davidson to address these issues??? The issues described above are actually the results of a second attempt by Dr. Davidson to fix the poor results of the 1st surgery he had performed 1 month prior. I was obviously not charged by Dr. Davidson for the 2nd surgery. He agreed that the results of the 1st surgery were not optimum, he agreed to make things right and offered to perform the procedures again. BUT........ at my 1 month follow up appointment after the 2nd surgery, again I brought up the VERY VISIBLE & VERY OBVIOUS DEFECTS!!! Dr. Davidson advised me that he would try 1 more time to fix the problems, but it would be at MY EXPENSE!!! REALLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (4 months ago)

I had my first baby there back in January so I honestly wasn't sure what to expect as a first time mom. My contractions started 1/5 at around 3 AM. Nothing too bad. As the day went on they were getting stronger but as a precaution, I called my OBGYN's office and I was told to go to the hospital since I was timing them and they were fairly close together. My husband and I checked-in around noon. We didn't wait very long for a Friday afternoon. They hooked me up the the monitor and sure enough I was in early labor. Once I was checked more throughly, they determined I was only 1 CM. I was told I could be like this for hours or days but to just keep breathing. They also told me I would "just know" and they sent me back home. We were really sad at this point and I was in pretty bad pain. Hours go by and I'm basically laboring at home because I was fearful of being sent home again. Finally at 4 AM on 1/6, my pain was so awful, my husband called my Dr. and luckily she was working that shift so she said to come in. Now if you're unaware, the hospital's West Wing is closed until 7 AM so you have to enter through the East Wing where the ER is located. So my husband walks me through the door to sit me down and NOT a single soul was working the ER desk. After parking the car, he tried calling out for someone, crickets. He tried looking for a wheelchair, NOPE. I had to pretty much crawl my way to the West Wing's elevator to go all the way up to the fifth floor. Once we got checked in again, I couldn't sit still to check the baby's heartbeat on the monitor so they just decided to check me and I was 8 CM! I asked for an epidural and was pretty delusional at this time. I never ended up getting it because I couldn't sit still for the life of me. The Labor and Deliver nurses were really awesome for the 3 hours that I had them, which includes labor and post partum care. After the baby was here, they tried forcing me to use formula because my baby wasn't "big enough". They made me pump, which is a big no-no the first few weeks. They also kept pricking my baby's foot which I thought was a sugar test, no, it was to test for Jaundice. Some PP care nurses were really great and helpful. Others not so much. On our day of check-out, no one helped us or rode me in a wheelchair like you see in the movies. My husband carried the car seat and I had to push the HUGE cart with all our belongings because double parking is pretty terrible in the West Wing. All in all, if I were to have another child, I will most likely not deliver here. (2 months ago)

Wonderful hospital with good doctors and nurses... just not enough of them working the ER... the last three times we came here for an emergency we waited over two hours (with our kids!!!). Probably best to go to children’s hospital or MGH where the wait time is better. (6 months ago)
