Excellent hip replacement experience!
My experience from initial evaluation to currently 1 week post-operative has been nothing less than amazing. Dr. Beamer and P.A. Barocio at the Marshall Orthopedic and Sports Center in El Dorado Hills, CA found severe damage to my right hip joint and recommended surgery. Having experienced several surgical procedures in several different hospitals in past years I was less than enthused. Preoperative paperwork was provided and any assistance I needed was provided. In one case, I needed a final blood draw which was done a week in advance but apparently not submitted to Dr. Beamer. His staff contacted me to remind me of the requirement, and when informed of the time crunch, the staff set an appointment at Marshall Hospital in order to prevent postponement. Professionalism , positivity, honestly addressing concerns, and level of care experienced there inspired increasing confidence leading to completion of surgery Dec 31, 2018.
Every member of Marshall Staff, from the surgeon, anesthesiologist, surgical staff, RN’s and MA’s, physical therapists, housekeeping, and cafeteria demonstrated courteous and respectful care, an experience that was confirmed by speaking with my post operative roommate who had been there 8 days. While this may not be consistent across all patients experiencing this surgery, my pain level was minimum, even when they took me out to try a walk.
Four months prior, I was my mother’s surgical buddy for the same procedure in a different hospital, and while satisfactory, the level of care was not the same. She has since joked with me that she was jealous! After care has been excellent as well, with RN’s checking and caring for the wound twice weekly, and physical therapy once per week.
My wife and greatest treasure will require orthroscopic knee surgery, and I am so grateful to know Dr. Beamer, his staff, Marshall Hospital, and their staff will be there for her. Any reservations and concerns I had for her treatment and recovery have been dissipated by the unbelievable care I have experienced from start to near completion of my process. Although I am aware patient experiences are subjective, I commend the professionalism, respectful, compassionate, and caring treatment received at their hands, and highly recommend their services.

I really appreciate the care and kindness I received from all my care givers.
I fell and broke my ankle on May 25th. EMTs arrived quickly and I took an ambulance to the ER. The ER staff attended to me quickly with care. I had surgery on June 5th. The pre-op, surgery and recovery staff were great. They kept me comfortable and gave me great care. I ended up staying overnight due to pain management. All of the nurses and aids that attended to me were very nice and caring. I really appreciate the care and kindness I received from all my care givers. Thank you for making this experience easier to get through.

The ER team was right on target
I fell 12 ft off a ladder when my knee gave out on me. I ripped my arm open severing an artery, sprained my entire spine and messed up my left knee revision. EMTs were fast, efficient and professional. The ER team was right on target taking care of my body, extremely efficient, organized and thorough! The medical officer that stitched me up, did a beautiful job! The staff nurse taking care of my IV and every need is a hard worker and very efficient! Thank you so much Marshall ER! All of you make an outstanding team!

Total hip replacement, overnight stay, great care
Last week I had a total hip replacement and the process from intake through surgery and hospital stay couldn't have been better. The surgerical staff, headed by Dr. Beamer, put me at ease at every step, fully explaining what would be happening and what to expect. Transfer to recovery and then to the hospital floor went smoothly and efficiently. I would like to recognize two individuals who I felt went above and beyond expectations in providing aspects of my hospital care. RN Teri not only provided excellent care but took the time to connect with me as a person as well as a patient. Her personable approach put me at ease, at the same time I was confident that I was receiving the best care. The second person, Ana, was an aide during the overnight shift. She also provided great care, and in a manner that was respectful of the overnight hours and approached me in a very kind and thoughtful way that minimized disruption during the night.
My great experience is continuing with Marshall Home Care. Both the nurses and the physical therapist are providing very thorough and effective care.
My experience, from start to finish, with Marshall Medical Center was excellent. I was treated respectfully by all staff who were personable and professional.

I must say I have never been so comfortable with a doctor on my first visit.
I must say I have never been so comfortable with a doctor on my first visit. Dr. Loni Jay is kind, caring, and took the time to learn about me and explain in detail the direction we are going in to treat my medical concerns. I highly recommend Dr. Jay to anyone.

Everyone did a remarkable job at making a stressful time more comfortable
I want to take this opportunity to thank ALL staff at Marshall Hospital for taking such special care of my sister-in-law (and me as a care-giver) during her recent surgery. Everyone did a remarkable job at making a stressful time more comfortable. We both appreciate the professional and caring way in which you all performed your difficult and demanding jobs. I must single out her surgeon, Dr. Taylor Vance -- he is a special person who truly cares about his patients, has a great bedside manner and goes above and beyond what is expected of him. After all that, my sister-in-law then received thank you cards in the mail from Marshall staff and Dr. Vance's office. What a thoughtful and talented group of medical professionals we have here in P Town!

I was treated with much respect and I was very grateful for their services.
Went to Marshall ER - triage was fast, got into a room and seen by a physician's assistant and within 30 minutes they were drawing blood doing x-rays giving me a breathing treatment. I was treated with much respect and I was very grateful for their services.

As a doula, I have attended several births here. The staff is amazing and the setting is lovely! In-room tubs are wonderful for laboring -- a wonderful addition to the new Birth Center. Every person who enters the room is friendly, professional, and personal. I speak of highest recommendations to my clients birthing at Marshall Birth Center!
