Location and Directions


My mom is staying there right now and I have never been so mad before at a hospital. My mom went to emergency for severe pain in her stomach and was admitted into a private room on the 3rd floor, then was moved into the Cardiac section because they thought it was something with her heart. She was roomed with a older woman, she was nice and there for her own reasons. But they would come in to do a breath test on her every 6 hours. She would be woken up at 2am at night every time they had to. And two nights ago she finally fell asleep thanks to a sleeping pill she asked for, but then she was woken up 2 hours later to give blood! Now last night I went up there to see her and they told me the wrong room, thank god someone texted me her right room! And now my sister was sending her a gift from Michigan and they told my sister that she was DISCHARGED! They mixed her up with the lady before her in that same room she was moved to! This is RIDICULOUS! Never coming here again, regardless of how close it is. (3 months ago)

Went to the Emergency department for back pain and shortness of breath. Normally I would not go to the ER but my friend who had a pulmonary embolism a few years ago told me my symptoms were very similar so I figured I would go to ER in case I had a life threatening problem. I had no other symptoms. Dr. Fernandez was the doctor that was on duty. He walked in to my room, did not introduce himself, asked me why I was wearing the boots I had on (it was raining- they were rain boots- most people could deduct the rationale??) at any rate I had no idea he was the doctor. He stood beside my bed and proceeded to ask me why I was there -so I told him. He then asked me whether my pain was “from my kidney, back, or lung?” (like I would know- that’s why I was there...bc I had no idea what was wrong w me) then he listened to my anterior chest (even though pain was posterior) then just walked out without saying another word. He ordered an X-ray of my chest, a UA, and some blood work. Once results were back he let the med student who was shadowing him come and tell me my “diagnosis” (keep in mind I have NO urinary tract symptoms like a fever, dysurea, hematuria, etc. - one would THINK if they had an acute infection that had traveled into the kidney that she would have a fever? Painful urination?) Anyway as the student was explaining my diagnosis Dr. Fernandez came back in and interrupt her to tell me that my pain is from “pyelourea??” Or “pyelonephritis” (can’t remember what he said bc he was speaking to me like I was a dumb ass that was wasting his precious time-though when I arrived NOBODY was in waiting room and the place was empty). He gave me a script for an antibiotic and pain med (despite me telling him I did NOT need pain medication) and walked out again. I did not inform him that I am a forensic pathologist AND an attorney. I sure hope his diagnosis is accurate!! He was a very unpleasant man. (in the last week)

Wonderful staff each visit .have a heart condition ..all staff was wonderful .will always come to Sebastian hospital in the Future,they listened and took care of me from head to toe comforted me thou all test and surgery's I needed .had a Dr appointment in Vero n was told to go to er right away they had me go to Vero hospital and was the worst experience I have every had ..........was released feeling more concerned then when I went in ,I will be going back to Sebastian hospital tomorrow to get answers,,,, and feel confident I will be heard and treated as I have in the past GREAT JOB SEBASTIAN HOSPITAL WONDERFUL STAFF THAT I APPRECIATE .... (a week ago)

Great staff took care of me from the beginning. From check in at 530am for surgery, the pre surgery prep was handled very well. Cant say much about the OR as i was out like a light. Only negative i have about the hospital is the floor nurse, cna etc.. Either could not or would not give me details as to the surgery I had. When it came time to check the information was printed from thier system. But don't let that deter you from getting care. They trully care and only had a minor heckup with getting details (a week ago)

My wife and I escaped from IRM Hospital in Vero Beach because they did nothing to help her in the ER. We escaped to Sebastian Hospital and were treated in a very professional way. It took a long time for a doctor to arrive but they did not want to do with my wife all that IRM wanted to do BECAUSE THEY THOUGHT IT NOT NECESSARY AND WE AGREED. Thanks to you for releasing her one day later! (a week ago)
