I have had several experiences there with different family members. My daughter was in there many times while being treated for her cancer. She passed away in September but I have NEVER experienced at any other hospital the compassion that this group of nurses showed. They were wonderful, and she could not have been in better hands. Thank you all.

March 9th will mark the third year of my Mother's passing. I would not recommend MMC to anyone other than the leader of ISIS. My Mother was at MMC for 13 days. I am still haunted by the Sunday when I entered the room to find her crippled and immobile arm, since birth, laying at her side. I immediately summoned her nurse & CNA in order to find out why this had taken place since they had known her arm would not bend. No one seemed to know or want to admit they were aware of anything. I requested to see her MMC doctor and the nursing supervisor. It was only much later when I became quite vocal in the hallway that anyone came. Lip service is the norm when dealing with an obvious error by hospital personnel. No one apologized since that would have meant some degree of responsibility. The following days prior to my Mother's passing were heartbreaking. She was so protective of her arm. The alarming part is that force would have to been used to straighten her arm. I had to intervene on several occasions when lab techs came to draw blood, that the arm did not move. Those treating her were aware as well. Three years later and I am still sickened by the fact that MMC staff hurt my Mother. After her passing, I requested a face to face meeting with her MMC doctor and nursing director. I was advised that no recording devices were allowed, but MMC personnel did take notes. Again, I heard lip service. Sorry for your loss blah, blah, blah. My Mother's MMC doctor showed me a xray on his phone, supposedly from my Mother's old records, showing her arm fully extended. Still to this day, I am beyond disbelief, that a physician would stoop to this level. More so too, he presented himself as a man of faith to my family during the time he was treating my Mother. Then, the MMC doctor stated that the nursing home where she had lived for the last 3 years had corroborated that her arm was indeed mobile. Another outright fabrication. Needless, to say nothing was resolved during the meeting. I am leaving the readers of this review with one final paraphased statement made by the MMC doctor, "get over it and move on". I left the meeting in tears. No one, other than close family members, know what the past 3 years have been like for me. My only hope is that my story helps keep someone else's loved one out of danger. I have omitted the names of the MMC personnel involved. They know who they.

This review is just on the operator that answers the phones. Today at 10 a.m. I called to see how my mother was doing as she is complaining of chest pain and the woman says she's in er. Well is there a way that I can find out more information like what room or what prognosis she has? The lady didn't even say one moment please she just transferred me and I didn't know anything until I heard music because she didn't say anything to me about it. I work in the customer service field and I understand that sometimes you get overwhelmed with calls and people coming up constantly but if you don't like your job QUIT. Someone else would LOVE to have that position and a job probably. Next time use some manners. I am not going to say I hated it b/c I disapprove of using the word "hate". but it was an unpleasant call.

Admittedly, my husband is a cranky patient. After all, who wants to be in the hospital? However, after several procedures and disappointing experiences, I can't blame him for being cranky. I appreciate and respect healthcare workers, and I know a bit about the administrative ends and outs of healthcare facilities. However, I have never seen a hospital as slow to finalize discharges as Methodist. The first time, I thought "something's come up; no big deal." The second time, I thought "well, they're probably short-staffed today." The third time, "um, no. Are they watching the clock to see if they can charge his insurance for another day?" Once, I swear, they seemed to forget about him in the ER. He suffers from atrial fibrillation, and after becoming stable and being placed in an observation room, we didn't see anyone for HOURS. When I finally flagged a nurse down, she seemed surprised he was there. Then, it still took a few hours for us to leave. We'll won't go back. I'll drive longer and take him to UT, which I already have. Our experiences there have been fantastic. I know nurses there, and while I wouldn't recommend UT's ER (as our area's only Level 1 Trauma Center, if you go to UT's ER and aren't in dire straights, they're not going to be in a hurry to get to you. You may sit in the ER for a long, long time. If it's something non-life threatening, just go to Tennova or Ft. Sanders,) our scheduled appointments at UTMC have been expedient, professional, and so, so different from MMC.

If i could give negative stars i would. First of all my first child was delivered at MMC and it was a nightmare. My wife had a C section and the delivery doctor closed the jagged openeing that wasnt even close to straight with glue and sent us home. 2 days later it split wide open and gushed blood while she was on bed rest!! They treat everyone like they are all drug addicts!! Today my mother, who was under direct orders from her doctor, was sent home with a blood pressure of 168 over 119. They told her to return if it went up 1 point! Fyi I am suing these incompetent a**clowns. You have a better chance getting treatment at a vet then at MMC!!

They have treated my Father Ralph Miller several times. I think they are wonderful. He was in CCU a few weeks ago and they got him better. He was sent to a Nursing home and had to return in a ambulance and they are taking great care of him.He is in ICU those nurses are all God sent. I give the Hospital and their great doctor's and nurses of saving my Fathers life. Well Jesus is in control of that but he used a wonderful team to work together in helping him They said they would do all they can for him and they are. I call everyday and talk to his nurse's and they are just all God sent The doctor's call with update I'm on crutches from foot surgery. My sister and niece visit him. They have treated us so good. I will never forget the loving care they have shown my Father. They are the Best. God puts people where they need to be and I feel the Lord has Blessed us with all the doctor's and nurses there. I really appreciate the work they did Thursday evening when he got there. They had to give him 12 units of blood and so many units of plasma. I think that is how much. We were afraid he would not live until morning. The hard work and loving care they gave him and the healing touch of Jesus Christ he is off of life support. He still has a long way to go but he is a fighter. I love you all.

The service in the ER was great, but the billing was weird. I got a bill for a visit I had 2 whole years ago.

I was in and out of the ER very quickly and Jamie one of the Rns there was the sweetest nurse I have ever met. All the staff was amazing!
