Azia Medical Spa
I love how relaxing this place is. It is such a treat to go there and get a facial with Jacqueline. The place looks great, and the staff is so friendly. I have had microneedling and laser treatments as well. I love the results I have had so far.

Azia Medical Spa
I love Azia. It is so quiet and relaxing. It smells so light, like a field of wildflowers. The staff is very knowledgeable and Liz and Jaqueline do the most amazing massages and facials. Very conveniently located right off 280 in Chelsea, but you would never know it, there is no traffice noise inside. It's like you stepped into another world! Will definitely be a regular.

Horrible, Horrible people who prey on cancer patients. Get your PT to size you and GO TO AMAZON. Do NOT use these awful women. They are not survivors, patients, or family, and certainly do not care about any struggling survivors, patients or family.

UAB Hospital Patient Information
I would not recommend anyone (other if you are UAB employee) to use the UAB services. The quality of their services is lower that other hospital as Saint Vincent or BrookWood hospital and their services are way more expensive. Summary: If you don’t want to get rip off don’t go to UAB.Here are the numbers: I had two kids 23 months apart. My first in Saint Vincents Approximate total billed for the whole pregnancy, delivery, etc $12,000. I had my second in UAB Women & Infants Center a division of UAB Hospital and the approximate total billed is $30,000 and the quality of the service was lower. In top of that when I requested the detail of charges in both hospitals and compare, there were a lot of charges in UAB that didn’t exist in Saint Vincent hospital. A great example is an item named “Visit Estab Level V” for $405. I asked what the service was, and they explained that it was just a general item just for front desk visit. Image that you go to a store and just to get in front of the cashier they charge you $405. Well, that’s what UAB does. Here other items that I compared:Item St. Vincent’s UAB DifferenceRoom $850 night = $1,700 $1,450 night = $2,900 UAB 70% ↑Nursery Room $580 night = $1,160 $1,418 night = $2,836 UAB 145% ↑Anesthesia - Epidural$455 $1965 UAB 332% ↑Recovery Room $356.4 $1,260 UAB 254% ↑Monitoring $14 $88 UAB 529% ↑Fee ABO Typing $18 $58 UAB 222% ↑Fee RH Blood Typing$45 $87 UAB 93% ↑New Born Screen$33 $95 (Done twice)= $190 UAB 475% ↑RBC Differential $78 $101 UAB 29% ↑Hepatitis B Vacine$91.4 $100 UAB 9% ↑Acetaminophen $0.5 $2.80 UAB 460% ↑I hope this review is useful to you all and help you to know that if you go to UAB you are going to get super-overcharge and not going to get any explanation of anything.Thank you

American Family Care
The rating is ZERO but yp wouldn't let me post unless I gave them at least 1 starI came into office with what I thought was and could still be a sty in my eye. I had a short wait in waiting room then got back to room and the older gentleman dr acted like he had no clue what was going on like he'd never seen a sty before. 20 min later he said "Hang on", 30 min later he said "ok did they draw your blood?" No they did not. So he told me ok let me go get someone. Another 20-25 minutes and I'm still sitting here alone in room while they talk about their lunch they've eaten. I got off my construction job at 9am I haven't eaten it's now after 12 and I haven't had tests, seen dr, or anyone. I'm pissed.It's 12:15 and they just drew 3 vials of blood and the lab tech said dr was on phone with another dr at a different location he might try to refer me to. Dang all I need is an antibiotic possibly in the form of a shot and maybe a few pills to take

American Family Care
WOW, I thought American Family Care in Eastwood was bad until I read these reviews. Why don't we just stop going to the Quack in the Box places. I know that I have.

UAB Callahan Eye Hospital
Beware. A routine eye lid surgery that was done in less than 2 hours, with over 1 hour waiting, and our insurance company was billed $9,752.00. And the work was done was less than satisfactory and are now looking for someone to fix the poor work done. Avoid anything to do with UAB medical.

Princeton Baptist Medical Center
The nursing staff is rude and unresponsive to the patients need. The doctors in the Simmon Williams Clinic are better the nurses they work with. I can't have a nurse that does not respond, return phone calls or has no bed side manner.

Brookwood Medical Center
I had major abdominal surgery, and was very well taken care of. I absolutely loved my treatment, and have very rarely encountered rude or incompetent staff. I loved them so much, that when I became pregnant, I chose them again to handle my prenatal care, and again, I couldn't be happier.
Tips & Advices
Academic medical centers provide the widest range of specialty care treatments, including the latest technological advances, clinical trials, and surgical techniques. In general, an academic medical center is a better choice than a community hospital for complicated treatments or rare diseases. Pediatric intensive care, especially, is usually performed at academic medical centers.
Academic medical centers offer a broad range of specialized services, from allergists to urologists. Some of the larger medical centers have entire hospitals or clinics focused on a particular medical service, such as cancer treatment, though specialties vary among the centers. Patients whose community hospital or local doctors do not have the facilities or expertise to address complex medical conditions can be referred by their primary care physician or local specialist to a major medical center (there are more than a dozen in the United States).
Yes. In addition to their inpatient hospital services, medical centers can offer a wide variety of outpatient services, such as pain clinics, rehabilitation centers, surgery, imaging and laboratory, mental health treatment, and outpatient cancer treatment. Medical groups – doctors in private practice but affiliated with the medical center--will also have offices within the medical center.
Physicians, nurses, physician’s assistants, residents, and attending physicians makeup the clinical staff of an academic medical center.
Medical center accreditation is not required, but most centers work voluntarily toward accreditation because it represents higher standards of healthcare quality and patient safety.
