I was running from pillar to post, meeting different doctors to get an accurate diagnosis for my neck pain for the past three months and what other doctors and hospitals couldn’t do in a span of three months, the ER doctor here figured it out in just an hour. I was thoroughly impressed by them.

People at AMITA know how to handle things in a fast yet efficient manner.

My neck pain feels so much better now. I so wish I had come to this place earlier which would have helped me get rid of this pain without having to bear with it for so long. After my experience, I am not trying out any other hospital ever again. I am still in amazement of the attentive and friendly staff here.

Definitely recommend it

Going to a hospital or visiting doctors is the last thing I want to do in my lifetime. But when there is a requirement one has to do the needful. That’s precisely how I ended up in the ER of this hospital one fine day when things were all going good for me but then all of a sudden I started having this stabbing pain in the left side of my abdomen. I initially thought it was some kind of muscle stretch as I had just finished my Zumba session. So, I sat down for a while and waited for it to stop. But it kept on increasing with every passing minute.

Finally I had to be rushed to the ER and by the time I reached there, my pain had become unbearable and I had started crying. I must say it took some time to be seen by a doctor but I think that’s the case with ever ER. But once the wait was over, I had one of the best doctors to attend to my case. I presumed that he would give me some sort of pain killer and write me off. But I was wrong. He did an ultrasound and saw that something was wrong. So, he asked for a better ultrasound to be performed.

Everything was done in a jiffy and I was diagnosed with kidney stones. My heart sank but I was holding myself up just because of the treatment I received from the doctors and the other staff here. I was immediately catered to and given a few pain medications (which by the way worked well) that helped relieve my pain. I was very soon shifted to a private room and I must say the empathy that the nurses and the doctors showed me here,
I have never experienced it anywhere else.

The next day I was promptly scheduled for a surgery and the pre-operation session was also done without any delay. Doctors and the concerned staff came to meet me quickly, arrangements for the surgery was also done fast and so were all the formalities completed in a jiffy. Mannn!!! I was truly impressed! For once in my life, a few people that too hospital staff made me feel really important.
Even once the surgery was done, the nurses who were assigned to me made sure that I had no discomfort at all and were very attentive to what I told them and the difficulties I faced. They seemed to have a quick feasible solution for all my troubles.

The best part was yet to come – The hospital FOOD! When I was brought back into my room, I was allowed to order food as per my preferences. The nurses knew very well what I was allowed to eat and what not. So, they gave me choices accordingly. I too decided to stick to liquid diet initially and the options the menu had were innovative and they took me by surprise when I tasted them. It tasted nothing like a diet/hospital food and I tried out all the liquid diet options one by one every time. And then when I was given a green signal for solid food, I didn’t stop myself. I ordered something delicious every time and ate like a glutton (heeding to the advice of nurses, of course!)

I was having a gala time in the hospital and when the day arrived for me to get discharged, I was a little disheartened. After all, who would want to leave a place where they are made to feel important and treated like a queen. But I had to go home and that day too, things went on as smoothly as it could be. I ordered and ate before I left too.

I still hate going to doctors or hospitals, but if I have to be under medical care, this is the place I would be!!!

One of my aunts underwent a surgery here last year for gall stones removal and since my cousins worked elsewhere and I was nearby, I was with her throughout. Long story cut short, I would say fantastic care was taken of my aunt at every step. They did not bother me or my aunt and took care of all her needs.

Even the way they spoke her with empathy and with a smiling face all the time, truly touched my heart. I would say the hospital and the staff are filled with all pros and there is nothing negative that I can think about them. It is one good hospital with solid good staff. There old accommodations are a little too old but the new rooms are nice.

A good place to get yourself treated!

Doctors have no sense of time

Good things were all I heard about this hospital because of which I had a fine impression about the place too. But all went for a toss when I one day there arose a situation to rush my dad to the ER of this hospital. He suddenly had this jabbing pain in his back and became completely stiff. I was in total panicky state but the hospital staff showed no concern at all for my dad.

I rushed him to the ER but I doubt if the people working in this hospital even know the true meaning of ER. They should first learn how to deal with patients who are brought into their ER. My father had to wait for literally more than an hour to be attended to and by then he was miserably in pain.
I realized what a grave mistake I made bringing him into the ER of this hospital where no one has any sense of time or any consideration for the patients and the family.

My sincere advice to all – Please do a proper research about a hospital and their staff before you go there or decide to take your loved ones there. For them, its just another patient but for you the person might be your life. So, choose wisely rather than listening to what others have to say.

I have worked in different hospitals as an administrator for the last 30 years; so I know the industry and the attitude of the people who work there etc. Allow me to be brutally honest here; I have never been to a hospital or I have never worked in a hospital wherein the patients are treated with so much care and attention. I don’t remember the last time I was so good to a patient and walked that extra mile to make them feel important and cared for, who was admitted in a hospital where I worked.

But I feel extremely lucky and blessed to have chosen Lagrange hospital for my treatment as the facilities they provide is top notch and not just their doctors or nurses, the entire staff seems to have undergone a training on how to treat a patient to the best of their abilities.
I am in awe of their care!
