I love the care we receive here! The drs and nurses' bedside manners are amazing, their support of the family of the patient, and their patience with the patient during recovery. My dad had an emergency high risk, quadruple by-pass last week, and while he did have some complications, they were right there with us, and with Dad, helping us through every step of the way. Today they are prepping him for discharge to a rehab facility, and there is so much care and excitement among his care-team as they are "celebrating" with us, the success of Dads recovery. I am so thankful for Vanderbilt, and that this is where dad was sent for surgery. They saved his life! Love Vanderbilt. Love the doctors. Love the nurses. Love the students. (in the last week)

Dr. Matthew Resnick is my Urologist for 2 different types of cancers. He is the Best of the Best, has a great bed side manner and makes you feel very comfortable when explaining what he wants to do or the review of the test results. He really cares about his patients, has the most upbeat attitude that I have ever had for cancer treatment professionals. He makes you feel like there is hope, regardless where you are in the cycle of treatment or diagnosis. I would never leave his office for another Urologist. (2 weeks ago)

This is the worst hospital ever. They do surgery on things that weren't an issue. My step mom had to wait 9 hours for surgery scheduled at 2:30 p.m. They did not address the problem and tore her small intestine in the process. I hope someone sues them until they have no facility. Always go to St. Thomas Midtown if you want quality service. She has been waiting in a recovery room for over 12 hours after her wait for 7 hours for surgery. They did the same thing to my grandmother, over medicated and said she is old. Pathetic (a week ago)

4.5 stars: as good as a U hospital can get. was here on 2-mo rotation, having seen the inside i can tell you - they do some really good things here. V thorough with their workup, they're into advanced research as well, always looking up and putting into practice novel stuff. Staff is V busy given their Large referral area, but they do their best to keep up n do their best. i would certainly admit a family member here than any other place in TN! (4 months ago)

Billing and Payment: My husband was taken to Vanderbilt Hospital on January 20, 2018 by Air-Evac from Bowling Green. He passed away on January 30, 2018. After receiving several bills for services and waiting an appropriate time for all the bills to pass through Medicare, they sent final bills that coordinated with the Medicare Summary Notices that had been received. I paid the final amount of $1,525.06. Paid it on May 15, and it cleared the bank on the 23rd of May. Yesterday I received a notice that there was due an amount of $771.13. I looked the bill over carefully and it was an exact duplicate of all the other bills they had sent, but credited to my husband's account was only $753.93. So I called them and asked why the entire $1,525.06 was not credited. I was told that they paid a different bill with the money I sent; a bill they never sent to me. A bill that they had no intentions of sending me. They then told me that since I was never sent the other bill, they'd be happy to send it out next week. But in the meantime, I owe the $771.13. (That I already paid) Well I may be totally stupid, but Medicare gets all the bills automatically sent to them. And those bills are reflected on the Medicare Summary Notice. There is nothing on any of the Medicare notices that show anything other than the balance due by patient to be $1,525.06. I had to rate it with a star in order to post, but it should not rate this much. By the way, the Hospital allowed someone to make a life or death decision about my husband's wishes and that person had an invalid POA. The hospital knew that the patient was married and had children. We were deprived of the right to visit him prior to his death. This hospital did nothing to help my husband and now is trying to get money out of his meager estate to line their own pockets. Their greed and non-caring attitude about the patient makes this place a poor substitute for a Hospital. (a month ago)
