I am someone who has a fear of hospitals, but the staff took great care of me and put me at ease.
The surgeon Mr D Gordon was very professional and took time to listen to my concerns.
The procedure itself went smoothly and there was no pain it was more discomfort and annoyance of having to try and sleep upright etc.
I would definately recommend the clinic for anyone thinking of this procedure.
The staff were very courteous and took an interest in my medical complaint. I had an appointment with a neurologist Dr. J. J. Craig whom I had previously seen at another location. As usual he was a gentleman, takiing time to listen and was concerned with the level of pain I was in. He was exceptionally helpful and went out of his way to help me get the medication I needed from the pharmacy in the clinic.
All the staff I came in contact with from appointments, nurses, consultant and the accounts staff were exceptinally pleasant, courteous and helpful and I would have no hesitation in recommending the clinic (outpatients) dep and I will be returning there very shortly for further medical treatement.
However, this review is based on my being a prospective customer for diagnosis and (hopefully not) surgery for my husband.
I've been looking at the websites for the Ulster Independent Clinic and Kings Bridge Private Hospital on the Lisburn Road, and looking at reviews.
I haven't yet looked the the reviews for Kings Bridge (hunting still to do), but UIC is getting VERY mixed reviews. The telling thing for me is that UIC' Patient information is that you will receive a letter 2 weeks before admission, and the payment details. KBPH is giving you ALL the stuff that you actually expect in patient information. It certainly looks, based on their website, that UIC consider the only thing you should be thinking about is how to pay them, which is certainly in keeping with the reviews on this site.
I'll look for reviews for KBPH before making up my mind, but first impressions are that I'll be looking anywhere but UIC ...
Unfortunately, I had a very disappointing experience there too. Gastro Consultant did not read to the end of my notes before diagnosing me. He didn’t let me finish a single sentence and even patronised me a couple of times for good measure. He could see I was in distress but made no attempt to calm me, instead he referred me to a heart specialist when it has now turned out to be a stomach related issue all along.
R ooms were very clean,very much like a hotel. Nurses were fine until you had a problem,such as post-op pain.They clearly just wanted me out of there.
On my day of discharge,I told them I didn`t fell well at all and couldn`t walk because of the pain.They told me to lie on the bed until my Dad arrived to collect me.On his arrival,he asked them was it ok to take me home as I was so obviously ill.They said yes,without checking as much as my blood pressure.He proceeded to carry me from the clinic.
24 hrs later I was an emergency admission to A&E with septicemia.
im under the care of a mr swain for an arm problem i only attended here as an n.h.s outpaitent so was very surprised to learn that it was a private hospital until i looked up directions how to get to it on the internet. very nice inside and waiting times not long very nice inside swanky i call it but reception staff very nice i was in and out in abiout 20mins in total but normally im seen at the ulster or musgrave for this so this was out of the norm nice to see at least once what mioney could buy esp when i read about all the comestic surgery this clinic does.
I had my wisdom teeth out here a few years ago and i was very impressed. The consultant was very helpful and explained everything in gory detail. The nurses couldn’t have been nicer, they were reassuring as i was nervous and even the food in the afternoon was lovely.
My room overlooked a garden and had a tv, video and en suite bathroom. The whole room was sparkling clean and all i had to do was buzz if i needed anything.
To be honest, it was just like staying in a hotel. I was on a soft diet so they gave me soup and tuna sandwiches.
I wanted to stay overnight but they made me leave! lol
I have to agree with nichola the ulster clinic is truly the worse in belfast if not northern ireland! The doctors are down right rude and just want you out of the room as quickly as possible so they can get done with the the patients and drive home in their fancy sports cars its insane!
