Had to visit the Advocate Good Sam ER after suffering from one of the worst panic attacks in my 40 years of life. I was seen in a reasonably quick time. The nurses and doctors who treated me were informative, attentive, and very kind. A special shout out to Dr. Steiner and his wonderful team of nurses for helping me get through this

I have visited quite a few hospitals, but have never been to a hospital that has such a wonderful team of nurses and doctors. They are so caring and kind. The staff made sure the entire surgery was done without any problem. I was nervous, but the professionalism of the team was enough to calm me down. I would highly recommend this hospital. Thank you Good Samaritan for employing such wonderful people

I had decided to become sober and wanted to get treatment for my alcoholism. I was informed that if I were to be processed through the emergency room, then the whole process would be easier. With this in mind, I visited the emergency room. I told the hospital staff my primary purpose of coming to the hospital. They all agreed that it was a good decision and agreed to do the needful. I was taken in, and my belongings were taken away, and blood was drawn. They also handed me a multivitamin. After waiting for nearly three hours for clearance to get admitted to the sobriety program, a doctor who I do not think is part of the program comes and tells me, “You are free to go. I do not like the blood/alcohol level, but then it does not necessitate an admission into the program.” I was left stunned at the turn of the events. Things got even worse when I was handed a bill of $4500...the patient relations person was very rude to me, and it seemed that she was least bothered about what happened. This trip was a total waste of time and money!!!!
