Will never take my child the the emergency room there again. Go to Children's. 9/15/2006

My 6 year-old son had a gash on his leg and needed a couple of stitches. I won't detail the wait times, but we got there at 10pm and got out at 2am. The emergency room was nearly empty the whole time. The "doctor" was the most inexperienced intern that I've ever met. The local anesthesia was not properly applied. And it probably wore off before this guy showed up again - after 1am. He started stitching and my son screamed in pain. He left the needle in the wound and tried to directly inject more anesthesia. My son was screaming his head off. The intern suggested that maybe my son was just a sissy (I don't think so - he takes his immunization shots without crying). The attending doc showed up but had no idea what was going on. The stitches were hastily done (they later came loose). My pediatrician was appalled to hear the poor treatment my son received. For this awful experience getting three stitches, I was billed hundreds of dollars. more

Outpatient surgery is excellent 8/28/2006

I've been there for both of my cataract surgeries and for an epidural for a herniated disk. The folks in outpatient surgery are well-organized and helpful. The operating room as well appointed and organized. Post-surgery the outpatient surgery floor had helpful peole who monitored nicely without hovering. Evanston hospital is a great choice for outpatient surgery. My wife and I have also had good experiences with them for lab tests, xrays, etc. more

Experience with the emergency room 8/19/2005

A close friend was taken to Evanston Hospital during a seizure, and I waited for four hours in the emergency waiting room as she received treatment. While I have no complaints about the waiting time (I understand; it's an emergency room), I do wonder why the nurses and doctors treating my friend were so slow to respond. She was very upset because they would leave her there for extended periods of time without letting her know what was going on. It was very frustrating. But in the end, things did work out, and the hospital staff did get the job done. So it could've been worse -- but it also could've been much better. more
