My mother had surgery there a week ago. It has been nothing but problems since then. We were not allowed to see her until 6 hours after her surgery but the staff expected us to wait in the waiting room the whole time and would scold us if we left. She was discharged 5 days after surgery after being mistreated by the staff. She went there for an appointment today to remove a feeding tube she did not consent to receiving and they told her to come back next week. We live over 3 hours away. We have had to come 4 different times in the past week. Lack of compassion and no communication from the staff. As soon as this ordeal is over, we will never be back to this hospital and I would suggest no one else goes here to receive care. We have never had such a chaotic experience dealing with a hospital, it is unacceptable.

On Monday, April 8 I arrived with friends to visit someone in Ashley Tower. Crystal Nichole Love Gutierrez warmly greeted us and checked us in. Her great smile, and humor made us feel so welcomed. I accidentally left my ID at her desk and she sent someone upstairs to my friend's room to deliver it to me. AMAZING!! Please give this young woman my sincere thanks and gratitude for going above and beyond!! She is a keeper!!

I recently visited the orthopaedics department at Rutledge Tower to have a finger injury examined. I am a rock climber, so rehabilitating and restoring the finger would allow me to get back to the sport that I love.I informed the physician and nurses of my issue and noted that it was likely a soft tissue injury, given the nature of common rock climbing finger injuries. They insisted on performing an X-Ray first as a "process of elimination", even after I requested an MRI to be performed first, which would be most likely to show the cause--as again, this would most likely be a soft tissue injury, which would not show on an X-Ray. Why pay for the X-Ray if the MRI can show the problem right off the bat?Why indeed? The radiologist laughed off my concerns and insisted that the X-Ray should be done first. Of course, the X-Ray showed no issues. And, of course, they charged me a hefty amount of money for the X-Ray, which they knew would likely show no issues.I feel taken advantage of, as the X-Ray of course didn't show any issues. None of the staff seemed to really care that I was in pain, and the physician did not even offer me any advice on things I could do to help improve the pain. I simply wanted to find out what was wrong with my finger and potential remedies to heal it so that I could get back to the sport I love.MUSC really let me down, and I can only imagine how often they may be running through similar "processes" with other people, costing them much more money than I'm facing with my bill.I will not be returning to MUSC for any future medical care.

The experience I had at MUSC, in a word, sucked. I was on day three of a pretty severe manic episode (I have been formally diagnosed as bipolar by two different doctors and have since been medicated for it) and literally had to LEAVE WORK and be driven to the hospital by my angel of a boss because it got so bad. I was afraid my medication wasn’t working like it used to because I had a small lapse in taking it due to being busy with work, moving, etc. I was seen by one of the resident doctors who simply told me I was “stressed”. Like I’ve never experienced stress and couldn’t differentiate between the two. He pulled up what was honestly a very childish graph on his phone of what constitutes mania (“you have to be up for at least SEVEN days for it to be mania”) and totally invalidated every concern I had for myself. I felt embarrassed and dumb and just wanted to leave. He said that he assumed I had been in inpatient treatment before (thanks, my guy) and said that that was not something I would want to seek out. He sent me on my way with some papers on how to manage anxiety with deep breathing and meditation which was really just the icing on the cake. This unchecked manic episode progressed into a psychotic break, which had me hospitalized and caused me to miss even MORE work. Rest assured, I did not go to MUSC for inpatient. I understand that ER doctors can’t hit the nail on the head every time, but this was by far the most thoughtless and unprofessional medical experience I have ever had. And to top it all off, I answered all of the cigarette smoking questions honestly, as I wanted them to know all of my medical history so my treatment (or lack thereof) could be as thorough as possible. Now I won’t stop getting calls through an automated MUSC survey about my interest in quitting smoking- which I never expressed during my visit! If I have the choice, I will never return to this hospital again.
