I had a truly life changing experience. A brilliant cardiologist, Dr. Green, performed a catheter ablation procedure on me during my eight month of pregnancy because of repeat cardiac dysrhythmias. He took his time, was very thorough, and took great care in the operation. My results are outstanding! He is very confident that I am cured and will never have this problem again. I am very thankful and grateful for being referred to him in this hospital.
I DON'T KNOW WHAT ALL THESE OTHER PEOPLE ARE TALKING ABOUT. I HAVE BEEN TO MANY HOSPITALS AND THIS IS BY FAR THE FINEST I HAVE BEEN TO. I HAD BYPASS DONE 2 WEEKS AGO AND DOING GREAT. THE SURGEON WAS WORLD RENOWN, THE CARE WAS IMPECCABLE, THE FACILITY BEAUTIFUL AND AND THE SERVICE, INCLUDING PRE OP TESTING, FAST, EFFICIENT AND PRECISE. I WOULD RECOMMEND IT TO ANYONE WANTING SUPERIOR CARE AND TOP DOCTORS.
your service is horrible, and you make people worese then they are, bed experience in almost every department, they don't care treat you like a thing, can't even describe my expierience because it is so horrible.....
Blind leading the blind......very poor hospital!!!!!!! – I was referred to Loyola by Mercy Hospital in Woodstock, IL. Mercy, Mercy Harvard Hospital and Memorial Medical Center sucks too. I have been suffering from digestive issues for about four years now with no relief in sight, so far. Every year for the past 4, I've had surgery. Hiatal hernia, umbilical hernia, esophogeal distress and repairs, all results from acid-reflux disease. All I received from the past 4 years are "Band-aids" with no real solutions for healing my distress. Prescriptions simply don't work at all anymore for me. This was the reason for my referral to "one of Chicago's best hospitals", at least that's what I was told.
My doctor, Dr. LoSavio, doesn't seem to care about my well-being....ordering test after test, etc. Tests that I've had before at the previous hospitals in the very recent past. I also brought in all of my recent test results from the referring doctors and hospitals for their convenience which she didn't seem to review that much at all. She doesn't return my calls and I've been bounced around like a ping-pong ball. Yes, I'm still experiencing debilitating pain and I vomit daily....hopefully she'll find the time to respond with my test results before the month of August is over.
Very Lousy Health Care System and a big waste of travel time and gasoline. Sorry Loyola, you guys were supposed to be giants in your industry, however I know otherwise. Don't waste your time, energy or insurance on these guys unless you want to fall between the cracks with this so-called hospital.
Every appointment that I've had was more than a month between each visit....I hate the suffering. I despise their lack of professionalism and the fact that they didn't communicate with me. No patient should ever receive this extreme lack of expertise. Don't waste your time with this hospital. My rating would be no stars if this review allowed it....
Doctor Care Inpatient – ER was fabulous!! Professional, very nice and totally AWESOME AAA++++! The only thing I was unhappy with- was that it was charted that I had REFUSED a medication. And later someone reading my chart told my family I "refused". The truth being and by mutual agreement between me and my ER nurse (who was awesome) = it was not given due to my vital signs not being stable enough to receive the it.
Unfortunately, I was admitted-when I got upstairs and met my admitting doctors my nightmare began. One doctor's FIRST words to me were " You have XXXXXXX insurance/ why are you here?"! My nightmare went downhill from there. . I was instantly- totally blown away - shocked - I think I even hesitated to respond. Quite frankly, I did not know how to respond. I was freaked out -I'm in pain, my chest was hurting and the DOCTOR in front of me is telling me I have the wrong insurance??!
My family and I had traveled over an hour / probably close to two/or more- the way we went- to one of the top hospitals in Chicago to have my unusual condition finally treated / and to have the current issues dealt with= after waiting many, many, many, severely painful months. On top of all the strange things happening to me (now being 14 to 15 months after initial onset / post op- I went in there TOTALLY SCARED with new onset chest pain and heart arrhythmia's but grateful finally I would have some resolution/relief. So, Not what I received. The docs did not respect my PCP (Primary Care physician) from XXXXXXX nor me. And if they didn't respect my doctor- I didn't have a prayer!!!!!!! I was discharged unresolved / in severe pain / insulted /humiliated and had to pay $135 to get home. BTW *God Bless the cab company - they were wonderful /even though a lil-expensive!! Not their fault I was so far away from home. I do pray that doctor receives better care then I did from him - if / when he needs it.
Inpatient care = rated N
for NEVER again!!!
* It's not much- but I NO LONGER consider them the cream of the crop.
As for me : Currently I'm being evaluated for a motorized wheelchair due to my deteriorating condition.
Thank you all for your time -Blessed be! Be Well!
Not The Best....not even good – I was referred to a "specialist' (at least I thought) in the cardio unit. after seeing him I was told to just wait and that my case would be reviewed by some of Loyola Top Cardio Doctors, instead I was told by the "specialist" (he had no idea what to do).....(and my case was never reviewed by anyone) to go to ANOTHER "specialist" (so I thought again). Went and saw him, he ordered 2 test, had a TEE and a Heart Catherzation (which I was promised to be "twilight asleep" for BUT I FELT EVERTHING THAT WAS BEING DONE TO ME....I cried and told them it was hurting and I was told "I was fine"). After the test he went to talk to my family and told them he would not do any more test on me or do ANY surgery until I lost some weight.....my husband told him I barely eat now and he told my husband his solution "take away ALL food and just give her water that will make her lose weight". I still have not heard from either Dr. nor do I want to. What i do hope is that if either one of these Dr's do get sick they have a better Dr. helping them than they were to me
Bad experience that never goes away... – I was there in 2/2/2002 (easy to remember) and had cervical surgery (my 3rd. one) to be done by one of their best doctor in "neck-fusion" surgeries...what a nightmare...among all the horror that happened to me, one of them was being left on the hallway (in a gurnee) for hours after a "spinal tap", I was there crying, suffering in severe pain and along came nurses, doctos, hospital staff and NO ONE not even a single one stopped and asked me what was happening or what was wrong w/me...SHAME on them...wish with all my hear that I will never, NEVER have to face that place again..hope someday their doors will close forever!!
My rate for this hospital is -star
Bad experience!! – My dad passed away on Jan. 3 2011. He had been hospitalized at Loyola medical center in maywood from dec16-jan3. The nurses there are not helpul at all, the staff (i.e. front desk, cafeteria, pct's) are very unfriendly. As nurses they should be the patient advocates but these nurses just acted like they didnt care about my dad. He got really sick on sunday jan 2 and his nurse, isabel from the 6th floor, didnt come in to check on him until about 9:15 am(her shift started at 7am).my dad was complaining about chest pain and shortness of breath and a really nice night shift nurse helped us by increasing his oxygen. But he was really sick....we were told that he was going to be transferred to the MICU at about 10 am. and he was transferred until about 7:30 pm when he had a cardiac arrest and resucitated..and then he was rushed to the MICU....a bit too late. My father passed away on Monday morning, Jan.3rd 2011. I cant help but think that had Isabel pressured the MICU, because my father was really sick, maybe he would have made it. He went more than 6 hrs. in pain and with chest pain, and shortness of breath.....horrible experience.
I am very grateful for their services! – Thanks to their Doctors, I am a mother of three wonderful children. With my first daughter, I was hospitalized a full month and my experience was the best. The bed linens were changed every day, staff was always kind and even the food was delicious. For my other two kids my stay was not as long, but did end up in labor and delivery a total of four times for procedures with not one complaint. I really feel I owe them a big part of my happiness and that will always stay with me.
pediatric oncology...horrible experience – My child was treated here several years ago, and I still have horrible thoughts about how she was treated. Gail, the oncologists NP was one of the coldest, meanest people who has NO business working with children at all. If you are being teated there, seek other care.
