I did not meet Dr. Sweeney. I met with a nurse who changed my catheter. So you’re not getting the message right when you just put his name down. So this this questionnaire is helpful, and I think it applies to the nurse. She did very good job, and I appreciated her very professional way, and I deal with her rather regularly because I have a catheter change every four to six weeks. So this questionnaire doesn’t really fit me directly because you’re treating me just like any other person, this is different, this is a different kind of a set up here. So thank you for your information, and I appreciate the work that the hospital is doing and the nurses and doctors very much. Thank you. Goodbye.

I had never met Dr. Sweeney and had no idea what to expect. Some doctors are not very personable. Dr. Sweeney was great! I feel I am in good hands and am relieved to know I have someone very competent.

After I talked to the doctor the scheduling or his secretary. His nurse came in and schedule me for my next appointment, but she didn’t check with me to see if it was okay. And would meet with in my schedule. She just was making it whatever schedule she had or she did that was a little annoying. Other than that everything was okay. Thank you.

Dr Sweeney and his staff were awesome! However my appointment was at 3 and I arrived about 20 minutes earlier, did not get back to a room for almost an hour after my schedule time, and it was all together about an hour and a half after my schedule time when I saw the provider. I believe the department over schedules for time slots. If it wasn’t for the staff being kind, I probably would of left.

Following my appointment on 1/15 at 8:15 AM, the provider was supposed to call me in a prescription and never did. Also, I called back just after 11:00 AM and received an answering machine in regards to something we discussed during my appointment and received no call back before they left for the day.

One suggestion. You send an email days before as a reminder. If you are supposed to get things like bloodwork xrays etc that should also be reminded since appointments are often made months and even a year ahead of time.

I pressed an error there. I did get the medications reviewed the nurse Dakota did it. Dr. Sweeney is exceptional. We’re very, very happy with his down-to-earthness and ability to handle the situation that we have with bladder tumor. Thank you.

Dr. Sweeney told me I was due for a PSA test so he couldn’t do the prostate exam because sometimes doing that alters the results of the PSA test. He wanted me to go to the lab department following my visit with him and get my PSA test done and he would see me back in 3 months. I would think that he could have seen that I was due for the PSA test before they made this appointment and had me get the test done beforehand and possibly wouldn’t have had to make another appointment. Doesn’t make sense to me. I also waited in the waiting room almost 40 minutes before I was called back to the exam room. After the visit, I went to the lab department and waited 45 minutes before they called me back to take my blood. My time is just as important as the medical personnel at both departments and it’s pretty aggravating to have to wait that long for maybe 15 minutes total of health care.

The wait time past my scheduled appointment time was well over an hour since the doctor was running late but I felt this particular doctor spent plenty of time with me to answer my questions and discuss my health. Dr. Sweeney has excellent bedside manner with his patient and was very complete with my health care needs.

The Belpre office was fantastic. The receptionist, the nurses, everyone was just great. Dr. Sweeney is wonderful. I feel very comfortable and safe with him. The Marietta office on the other hand, I have some problems getting there in traffic. I had called and left messages and they had never even check their phone. Therefore, I couldn’t see him that day because I was more than 15 minutes late. When you call and you leave and you can’t talk to them and you are asked to leave a message. You would think at least the receptionist would get the message, but just didn’t happen. And I was very upset because I had to turn around, go back home, and I had left in plenty of time to get there but I was stopped in traffic three times on the interstate for construction. And I knew I was going to be a little late and I

After an attempt to have a cystoscopy I was instructed by the physician to go into the bathroom and urinate. While I was in there, I apparently passed out as I woke up on the bathroom floor in pain. After I left walked out of the bathroom back into the exam room, I told the nurse that I was on the floor and had apparently passed out. The nurse just kept repeating that she didn’t hear me fall. Dr. Sweeney said it sometimes happens but nobody seemed particularly concerned about me. I had a bad headache the entire rest of the day. And today(the next day) my left foot is hurting. Nobody explained why it happened. Nobody explained why they had trouble getting passed my prostate during the cystoscopy. I had questions about why the procedure failed and why I passed out. But they seemed more concerned about giving me a water and a snack and clearing me out of the room. Nobody offered to walk me to my car. The entire experience was bizarre. And perhaps with some sort of explanation it wouldn’t have been. I had questions but I was so woozy that I didn’t ask, I was just trying to get my bearing and figure out what had happened.

My appointment was for 11:45 a.m. and I had to wait to see the Doctor for 0ne hour. Too Long to wait. In his waiting room if says if you are 15 minutes you may be rescheduled, however if the Doctor is one hour late you just sit and wait. It should cut both ways.

The physician was 45 minutes late for our scheduled appointment (it was scheduled for 10:30; I saw him at 11:15). The nurse who took my vitals explained the doctor’s lateness, but the doctor did not apologize. The nurse who took my vitals ask me to ID myself, but did not ID himself until I asked. In previous visits I have received information on the result of the test of my urine sample; I did not this time.

Yes. I’d like to say that the nursing staff, and even Dr. Sweeney was very understanding of my post traumatic stress disorder due to being a prior victim of rape, and having Dr. Sweeney in that area … just … it was very relaxing that he was able to calm me, and with all the staff, I absolutely.will recommend Dr. Sweeney to any other female in my position. That’s it.

You need to find a way to get in the building and where you have to fill out the information. They have that information. I see the doctors all the time and there’s constantly an issue about trying to make you do everything on her cellphone or you can’t get in the building. That needs to be addressed.

On the 16th after I had my stent put in after a lithotripsy, I made mention that I was incontinent and it felt as if something was coming out of the bladder. On the next day when I was released, the nurse practitioner Casey observed the fact that, yes, the stent was coming out, and she told me it would probably come out on the way home, so when I got home I had a lot of difficulty sitting. I called the office and they told me to pull my stent. After I did that, two days later, I ended up having an obstruction due to my ureter being swollen. So I had to come back to the hospital through the ER, pay an ER charge, pay a CAT scan charge, and then have the stent put back in place. I felt that I probably should not have left the hospital after she observed the fact that the stent was

If all your departments were as well run, well organized, is intelligent and as courteous, as your urology department, the hospital will be a wonderful place. Other doctors in Department should take note.
