Great place if you are a "Zebra" but not for run of the mill kind of stuff. Also very focused on money , so if you are on Medicare, dont expect much.
Lots of poor infection control measures on the... more general medical floors at St Mary's hospital and poor oversight of new nurses and residents. Sadly the care here has declined over the last few years.
When I was 14, I started getting really sick for no apparent reason. I had blood pressure issues, tachycardia, panic attacks, dizziness, and something that was basically a more minor version of locked-in... more syndrome. It was exhausting and horrifying. For two years, doctors treated the symptoms as I gradually got worse with time. At 16, I was diagnosed with a condition that was neurological and cardiological, but was prescribed a treatment that just didn't work. The next two years, my life revolved around my ever deteriorating illness and I began to pass out regularly. My senior year of high school was a wreck. I passed out one day in January and I never attended a full day of school the rest of the year, because my system just wouldn't bounce back and I could hardly function. I had doctors telling me everything from it was all in my head to I was dying of a brain tumor. At 17, I was terrified that I was dying or was going to live a life of utter misery, as I underwent every test with no conclusive results. My parents pulled their resources and got me to Mayo Clinic after graduation. Within a week, they determined that I had been put on the wrong medication two years prior and gave me something new for my heart. Within months, I was much more stable and wished I had had this medication at age 14! I got pregnant at 19 and pregnancy put my heart, hormones, and body through a lot of strain. If I hadn't been on the medication Mayo gave me, I honestly don't know that I would have survived. They take your situation seriously, they pull from interdisciplinary advice, and they do not give up. If you can get here to see these amazing physicians, I truly believe there can be hope for most situations.
