I love this place. Over the past two years I have had to bring my son here twice. This last time was for asthma issues. But both times I was so pleased with the treatment. It's like your kids are their kids. I've taken my son to other ER rooms in the past and with them you feel a money grab. Thank you nurses and Dr. 's for doing such a great job!!! Thanks to nurses like Rhodaya and many more. To many to mention them all!!!

Tough to find parking as with any place in the med center. The valet is $13, which is too high for a hospital. Dr Shah was very helpful and kind.

I delivered my son at TCH by c-section. My husband and I feel very lucky. doctors and nurses gave us their full attention and care. Hospital is very modern, clean, food is very good. Hospital also offers weekly lactation classes in group setting which I found very helpful and fun. Thanks to TCH and its staff, I have wonderful first memories of my family

This place has very rude intern doctors or doctors don't really like to answer questions. The lady to register for insurance she had a attitude because i said she spelled my husband name wrong. They do insurance first then vital signs. They find a way to keep your child there even if it is a in and out procedure. Cafeteria guy was rude i told him my son and family was i first time here and i didn't know how the menu work.cut me off while i was talking.

We have been dealing with TCH for about 2 years now. My now 17 year old daughter has been diagnosed with chronic urticaria and angiodema as well as an autoimum disorder. They thought she may have a thyroid problem so she was tested and diagnosed her with graves. After consulting with the doctors we d etermined the best method of treatment would be to have the thyroid removed. The doctors hoped this would cure the urticaria. During surgery she was given morphine for pain and had to be taken back to ER for hives in one day after being discharged. She was treated and after three more days in the hospital was again released with no new answers of the cause. We later found through research that morphine can cause large hives so why would she have been given morphine? Now she will be on medicine for the rest of he life and we have not yet receive confirmation from pathology the it was indeed graves. The lack of TCH doctors being willing to dig deep and find the root cause has me deeply discouraged with their care and concern for the patient. And I don't even get a personal response from TCH. They just change the name and send out the same response to all. Kind of like their service. Not very personal.
