"They're always very very helpful, very professional and very kind. I've been there for over 15 years and so it has been a life-saving experience. There's" not a large turnover in doctors or even the nursing staff. A lot of them have been there since I started 15 years ago.

"My liver was diagnosed abnormal many years ago so it was no surprise when it finally began failing in 2009. After going to other hospitals that were closer to my" rural home, or that were thought to be better focused on the disease but weren't, I went to Methodist and got into their liver transplant program and I received a liver after waiting nearly two years and undergoing 54 paracentesis procedures and multiple physician visits at the institute. The liver is doing well but owing to my age and condition there were many complications so the procedure itself and hospitalization was over 60 days long. During the months of this saga I witnessed how the hospital does business and their philosophy became evident through the many appointments that I had and the operation itself. It gets down to this: they are good at what they do. The medical community in this region seems to consider Methodist the best in the area and flows into it, wanting to be associated with the best whether nurse or physician or staff member. Some of the nurses, for example, came from a great distance to work there and the doctors came from all over the United States and the world. This concentration of talent attracts patients from all over the country and I met people there that could have gone anywhere in the world, but they were in Memphis where I was and that affirmed my decision to go to Methodist.But so much ability and talent leads to specialization and compartmentalization and probably does in other hospitals and their programs as well. At Methodist, if a doctor or nurse was assigned to one's case, he would not respond to you after you passed through his area of responsibility. That is,he might be responsible for your pre-transplant condition and simply would not communicate with you after you had the procedut=re. These "hoops" need to be identified by the staff when they are jumped through or it can lead to great confusion as the patient may feel abandoned at a very vulnerable time. Not knowing who is in charge during a hospital stay is frightening.In retrospect, the lack of temporary assurance is a small irritant in the scheme of nearly two years of treatment competently rendered but Methodist is not perfect (who is?). After waiting a long time to be one in six thousand that got a liver out of a national population needing a transplant of one hundred fifty thousand souls, I simply cannot complain. There is a hazard though; some hospitals are overly concerned with potential failure since they are judged by the authorities on their rate of successful treatment. That means some of them deny treatment to people that need it desperately just to preserve their reputation. I knew a young girl that had sudden liver failure, went to her nearest liver center for relief and they refused to treat her because there was evidence of alcohol in her blood (her sister had been recently married and she understandably drank at the reception). She went to Methodist and they ultimately transplanted her and she is fine now over a year later and sitting for her Phd. The Methodist doctors worry more about people than statistics. That's the kind of hospital I want for me and min

She is excellent. She is one of the top cardiology doctors there. The staff is excellent and they were always there for us. They explained everything to us. They always let us know that we could call anytime if we had questions. They are always available for us. We just took her to the doctor because we were concerned about something. They are always ...More calling us and we are calling them and stuff like that. They are on top of it.

Dr. Budev is an amazing physician. She truly cares about her patients and that comes across during office visits. transplant surgery is obviously a huge undertaking, but worry not. She runs the Transplant Dept. at The and knows her stuff. She stands up for her patients and ...More advocates. Once I put my health into her hands, I knew I'd be okay.

The doctors are very forthright and make you feel comfortable. They treat you as an individual and there is a little wait. The staff is very helpful and professional. I like their services and will use the same in future.

They are fantastic. They do everything and take care of the patients very well. They take care of you both physically and mentally; they have a psychiatrist there, also. The strain on the families is taken care of. They have kept me alive for a long time now.

The surgery went very well. Admitted Friday AM, Surgery completed by 2 PM. Walking.(slowly) the next day. Instantly my appitite returned. The care i received in the Harrisburg Hospital was exceptional. Very attentative to my needs very concerned. for my well being. Discharged from the hospital the following Wednesday. Would have been home Tuesday but ...More was slow to go if you know what i mean. My only complication was drainage from the surgery into my groin. It cleared up in a couple of weeks. As serious as this surgery is Dr and staph seemed to make it very routine. I was to be off work to convales for six weeks. I returned to work in three and a half weeks. I continue to follow my daily anti rejection drug schedule. I currently do blood work monthly and visit the transplant clinic every six months.

Dr. thoroughly explained complex medical issues to my satisfaction, and made sure I understood it. I don't have to wait in his office. He was highly recommended to me. He works very closely with the transplant team, and I had a liver transplant. He is a high level nephrologist. He has an excellent bedside manner.
