Kindred Hospital St Louis
I hope that you never have a need for long term acute care for your loved ones, but if you do, insist on going to Kindred - St Louis on Lindell.Having had the need for a great deal of acute and rehab care for my mom in recent years, I can speak from experience. The level of quality, safe, compassionate, consistent, and expert care can not be surpassed. All of the staff that we encountered were truly exceptional. They truly CARE ABOUT AND FOR the patients entrusted to them. My mom was treated with respect and compassion by everyone as was my family. Paul from the front desk knew our names, housekeeping greeted us with smiles and kind words, Deb, our case manager was involved and kept us informed, Fred from Radiology was always kind and extra gentle with our frail mom, the Therapy pros from PT, Speech, and Resp were wonderful and mom liked the food too.There are not enough glowing adjectives to describe the bedside nurses (Stephanie, Tracy, Rachael), wound care nurses (Michele and Andrea), and CNAs, (Marva, Rene, Sulaney) as they were all simply outstanding. The physicians even had great bed-side manners and get this...the senior hospital administrators introduced themselves to us. The most important part of healthcare decisions, in my opinion, always come down to the quality of care and I could not have made a better decision for my mom than to admit her to Kindred St. Louis on Lindell.

We love Kindred Hospital! Everyone was super nice and treated us like family. My dad was in Kindred for about 3 weeks. He needed respiratory, physical, occupational, and speech therapy after falling down a flight of stairs. Everyone was compassionate and took wonderful care of my dad. They rallied and cheered him on to get better. The receptionists were very friendly too and made us feel welcomed. My dad is moving to another rehab facility and I hope the care will be just as good. Kindred set the bar very high. With that said, I have to admit I was less impressed with the doctors. The pulmonologist (Dr. Omed) has zero bedside manners. He heard report from the respiratory therapist then he made eye contact with me from the hall and didn't even bother to come in to meet me or see my dad. I was not happy. Another doctor had zero bedside manners also. I think Kindred doctors need to take some bedside manner courses. They can take lessons from the nurses and therapist.

I have 2 sons and we have been going to Dr. Matt for about 5 years now. We were very attached to our previous pediatrician, so we he announced he was retiring, it was a big deal to find someone with similar philosophies on health and wellness...and someone we could trust. Dr. Sherman actually recommended Dr. Matt. And we have been very pleased from day one. It is a larger office, but the staff runs a tight ship and everything is always organized. My boys were not infants, so my appointments and questions have dwindled over the years, but Dr. Matt and their staff is always very attentive. My boys ask - why do we drive all the way from IL to see the doctor? Well, when you find someone that doesn't push medicine, but is practical and you trust, you just don't choose to go somewhere else.

Kindred Hospital St. Louis - St. Anthony's
I was admitted from another hospital, where imbecame septic with MRSA, doctors were not sure they could save my ankle and foot, or if i would be able to walk again. 2/3 rds of my ankle had to be removed, and no prosthesis could be used due to rejection. I spent two months there with the antibiotics, and learning to walk again. The small amt of bone left, and scar tissue formed to act as the whole ankle bone. I was a nurse, knew the odds were against me, but the staff was excellent. They nutured me and took care of my every need! I truly love the staff! Also, the facility was spotless, the food was good, and i enjoyed when they brought in the therapy animals. My stay went quickly! God bless you all!

Today I called to make my first appointment. Katie was pleasant and there was a smile in her voice. Katie you make my day. Some people do the same job you do everyday and don't do it with the enthusiasm and kindness that you share over the phone. Looking forward to meeting you. If I was in the same business I would offer you a raise and take you to my office. But I am not and so Dr. Abbadessa should give you a raise and keep you there. I spoke with "Mo" and she values you as well. Looking forward to meeting the entire staff. She said Katie is the face of our office - how true. Some one buy that lady lunch and let her know what a terrific job she is doing!!!-Gram Cracker

I was at kindred hospital for 6 month the staff became part of my family. I was very sick and I needed a LTAC hospital. Most of the staff was great. Therapy was great Janell and Renee worked very hard but got results. I want to thank all the nursing staff for the wonderful care and putting up with me. Katy case management was outstanding. Food was ok. The rooms could have been cleaned better. If you need help to get things done look for Stacy she is a great advocate for the patients. I'm glad I got to go home but I miss everyone so much. Thanks Marie

Forget about seeing him again after your initial visit. You are thrown over to a nurse practioner who blocks you from ever seeing this doctor again. Dr. Coleman is a great doctor, who should handle his own patients, he is an extremely bright doctor who understands pain management. It is a shame that he has joined the club of doctors who dont see their patients any longer, and toss them over to a non-doctor with limited knowledge (a nurse practitioner). The pain management community has lost an excellent doctor.

Dr. Rich is the best physician I've had the experience to work with. I am treated with respect, and have been actively involved with my treatment and care, since 2012. I've never felt marginalized, and have been encouraged to learn as much as possible by asking questions, and discussing research.Dr. Rich is kind and engaging, with a quiet sense of humor. He is a most gifted surgeon and person, whom I would recommend to friends, family, and anyone seeking professional medical care.

Dr. Stuart R Adler, MD
I don't know what Dr. Adler the previous reviewer saw but I had completely the opposite experience. The office staff is extremely nice and helpful. Dr. Adler took his time with me and has gotten further toward helping me in 1 visit than the doctor's I have seen for the last 2 years. He was systematic with reviewing my symptoms and logical with suggestions regarding what I am dealing with. He is extremely down to earth and takes his time with his patients.

Dr. Coleman is an awesome doctor, who takes the time to listen to his patients, not just the 5 minutes in & out like the majority of the doctors do today. Yes you do see his P.A. but she is also great at her job. I will never see another pain management doctor again. Believe me I have been thru a few & all they want to do is push pills down your throat. Dr. Coleman figures out what's wrong & goes from there. GREAT DOCTOR!!!!!!
Tips & Advices
This depends on the center. Some may allow brief visits by family members. Patients should ask about visiting rules before inviting people to stop by.
No. Patients should arrange for someone to drive them home and stay with them for 24 hours following the procedure.
This depends on the procedure. Most centers ask that patients arrive one to two  hours before the procedure begins. Following the procedure, the patient will stay at the center until fully recovered from being sedated. This may take between one and three  hours. After that, if the patient isn't experiencing abnormal pain, he or she may leave.
Different states have different rules regarding requirements for surgery centers. However, ASCs are required to be certified as a Medicare and/or Medicaid Ambulatory Surgery Center supplier before they enter into an agreement with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.
The most common types of procedures conducted at surgery centers are:
  • Gastrointestinal
  • Ophthalmology
  • Orthopedics
  • Pain management
Some of the most common procedures include:
  • Cataract surgery
  • Colonoscopy
  • Pain injections
