to this hospital, but would never take my dog. Doctors that lie, nurses that are just as dishonest and I AM a nurse. I would never lie to a patient. The doctors here practice extremely defensive medicine and when I mentioned it to one doctor, he called it ""preventive care"". The story is long and involved, but from the ER to the Neuro-intensive care unit, I was treated poorly. As others have said, I would give this place negative stars if I could. I'm new to Tampa and if I had asked ANYONE, I would have been told to stay away from this place. As it is, every SINGLE person I've discussed my experience with has told me about the hideous reputation this place has with those in the know. Even staff at another hospital winced when I said I had been to T&C. Do yourself a favor and keep those you care about away from this place. St. Joseph's is close, drive past T&C so that you can remain vertical, horizontal is no way to leave.
