If I could, I would give this place 0 stars. I went here myself and I did not like it. First off, I'm a picky eater so I didn't like the food. So everyday my parents had to bring me food when we live about 40 minutes away from Franciscans. The staff is nice and so are the kids. They didn't help me one bit there and they had a very packed schedule. I am terrified of needles so I asked the staff if I would have to get a blood test or a shot. i told them that I was afraid of needles and then they said maybe. They could've said that it depended on what my parents thought. Though I was only in that place for two nights, I got no sleep at all. Even though I was there for a very little amount of time, it was the worst experience of my life. If I were the staff, I would think about how the child feels in the situation.

CantC get anyone on the phone in the Dental department. No one returns calls left on an answering machine. When I was finally connected to the front desk, to set up an appointment, I felt like I was being a bother. Not a good way to start.

This review is for dental clinic. It was our first time here and first impressions say a lot. 1. Couldn't find dental clinic so I asked someone who worked the for help. She took me to the wrong area! How do you offer to walk me to the wrong department????? 2. Finally made it to the children's dental area and was on time for my appointment. I was provided paper work to complete which only took me like 4 minutes to have it done because it was short. BUT front office staff took almost 20 minutes to put my info in computer! It doesn't take that long if you know what your doing. 3. I had to ask front office 2 times what was taking so long to be seen as it took 40 minutes of waiting. She said she had to put my info in the computer. My response to her was that it shouldn't take that long to handle that. 40 minutes really come on! NO ONE ever came to acknowledge us to let us know they were running late if that was the case. Wait, but how could they be running late? as when I walked by earlier I could see no patients were in exams rooms people were just sitting around socializing. 4. this is supposed to be a children's hospital, right?!!! I did not find staff to be friendly at all. Instead I felt disrespected by front office staff, because she made me feel like waiting didn't matter so just wait. I don't recommend this hospital. Based on the overall reviews I wonder how this place is not closed and getting their act together. If you want medioquer treatment go there. Never again
