My experiences with madigan has honestly been horrible. if you are expecting a baby go off post! I had a c-sect. at madigan and when i asked a nurse for help with the baby she told me to do it myself. If you get an old room your husband can?「どィび「t stay with you, there?「どィび「s not any room, the hospital does not have a nursery, so you don?「どィび「t get a break, and it?「どィび「s hard if you can?「どィび「t have any help. The childrens clinics are bad. children need stability and you never see the same dr. twice, the nurses are rude, and pushy and treat you like you don?「どィび「t know anything. We live far enough away that we could change our pcm, heads up you have to live at least 30 minutes from the base to their standards, we live almost 25 miles away.

I work at Madigan Healthcare System in the Department of Anesthesia and Operative Services. We provide surgical services from the unborn to the elderly. The medical services are excellent here at Madigan. We even had our daughter seen at 1730 for after hours care for an ear infection and received antibiotics all within an hour.

We are assigned to our primary care at the McChord clinic, and we LOVE it. The pediatric clinic has been so helpful with our kids. We have gone to Madigan ?「どィて the hospital on Fort Lewis ?「どィて for the ENT clinic and the OR for my baby to to get tubes in her ears. THat experience was great, she was taken care of very well and I felt like they heard my concerns.

Dentist in Lakewood: Dental Health Associates, Dr. Sean Jung DDS. I used to have a horrible fear of dentists, but Dr. Jung has been awesome. He?「どィび「s done everything short of surgery and I recommend him highly.

Personal Madigan experience:
Our family has been assigned to Madigan since we came here and I think most folks get assigned here.

Appointments:
Never had any problems getting an appointment at Madigan ?「どィて when I really needed it.

Pediatrics:
a. regular appointments are generally on time-the ladies are nice and helpful at the desk.
b. they have a pediatrics lab where they can draw blood. This is especially nice since the regular lab is usually packed and has longer waiting time.
c. immunizations have been a hit or miss lately in terms of waiting times. Things have been changing?「どィャカcertain vaccinations can be given without appointments others can?「どィび「t?「どィャカso ASK
Other
a. ENT is hard to get an appointment for ?「どィて well, like at other installations.
b. Family Practice: call early and you can get an appointment the same day. Docs are generally on time, staff is nice. c. Facility is new and bright.
d. Pharmacy is p-a-c-k-e-d. I?「どィび「ve had 200 ppl ahead of me?「どィャカnot fun. Recently, they have changed their system and the waiting time was cut tremendously. Good time to pick up meds are Saturday mornings or weekdays evening.
e. I know that a few patient/families are being contracted out to other family clinics. Not quite sure which ones.
Special Needs:
My daughter as well as the other children have been accommodated in the Continuity Clinic. One doc for as long as either the doc or YOU are there. The physicians we had were very knowledgeable and for the first time in our military career the physicians actually helped me and reminded me of all the regular appointments that my daughter needed. Very nice and especially supportive.
Overall:
I like Madigan and the facility. With all the deployments..they are strapped with physic
