Other people can say what they want about their experience, but my son has been seeing doctors at Children's since the day he was born. He has had the best of care! Some of the younger nurses could use help with bed side manner. Over all my son wouldn't be here today if it wasn't for the wonderful care he gets when we are there.

DONT GO HERE !!!!!!!!!!!!!! RUDE NURSES ! RUDE DOCTORS ! DONT EXPLAIN ANYTHING TO YOU ! DONT CARE ! THERE YOUNG DOCTORS AND NURSES WHO JUST FINISHED SCHOOL THEY LAUGH AND EAT AND TALK ABOUT THERE BOYFRIEND AND WIFE ! YOU PRESS YOUR LIGHT THAT MEANS NOTHING TO THEM THEY MIGHT START DANCING TO THE LIGHT THINKING THERE AT A RAVE ! THEY GROUP UP IN THE HALL WAY LAUGHING AND TALKING WATCHING YOUTUBE ! THE ONLY INFOMATION ABOUT YOUR CHILD YOU WILL GET IS IF YOU OVER HEAR IT IN THE HALLS ! THE NICEST PEOPLE WERE THE HOUSEKEEPERS ! DONT GO HERE !!!!!!!! GET YOUR CHILD STABLE AND LEAVE ! I KNOW THERE WERE MANY WHO TRANSEFERED THERE CHILD OUT OF STATE ! THIS HOSPITAL IS A BIG NO NO NO . IF I COULD GIVE THEM ZERO STARS I WOULD !
NOT EVEN ONE STAR ON THE ER!!!!!! The ER service here SUX! I have been with my daughter 3 times in 4 years, which isn't a bad, considering I had a fast pass when I was a kid. My daughter had 1st and maybe 2nd degree burns to her fingers last night and it took us threatening to walk out if we didn't recieve some type of visit from the Dr. I understand there there may have been many other kids there in worse shape than my daughter as well, but damn it man! Don't just stand there watching the paint dry! My daughter wasn't in a great deal of pain but after seeing at least 15 nurses standing around the nurse's station like cows graising on grass, you can understand my frustration. After we threatend to leave last night and last time we were there, not even a minute later a doctor magicly appeared! We hit the door at 1030pm and left at 230am last night. Last time we got there at 1am and left at 845am! I would drive to the ends of the Earth next time if I knew that I could get better service than I got Children's ER in Birmingham, AL
