I can’t believe that this hospital is still in business. I don’t know how the hell have they managed to keep it open all this time. There is nothing positive to talk about the hospital at all. Under qualified doctors and nurses, insanitary conditions, sub standard medical facilities and on top of all this racism are all what I experienced here. I can go on and on about the negative things of this hospital.
Just because I had many questions and I demanded clarifications for all of them, I was asked to leave the hospital premises. The doctors don’t even know how to treat their patients. I feel sorry for myself that I even went there.

I was brought to this hospital in an emergency situation and when I landed up here, there was someone ready to assist me with everything. The whole situation was scary to me and this guy, he helped me calm down and explained all that was going on.
And when I was brought into the emergency room, a nurse helped me feel better and her awesome behavior made me feel a lot more comfortable as well. She too was very attentive to what I said and it was because of her that pain slowly started vanishing that day. Even the doctor who attended to me was very calm and gentle and with all their presence around, I felt very safe and secure and had the faith that I would be healed soon and go back to my normal life.
Thank you so much everyone! All you guys are truly an asset to the medical field. If I have to go to a hospital again, I will only come back here.

My son was admitted here and he required an urgent surgery to be performed on the same day in order to save his life. And ER doc saw to it that the surgery was done on the same day. In fact he and his team of nurses were on their toes to make sure things went on smooth and not even once did I have to worry about the procedure.
Thank you so much for the excellent care and professionalism that all of you have shown. I feel like I have experienced the best medical care possible. You guys are the best and please be the same at all times.

I know this seems a really small facility from the outside and its infrastructure does not manage to impress many. But do not judge a book by its cover. The place has excellent medical facilities to offer and the health care they provide here; the well qualified doctors and the hardworking nurses, I have not seen such good services available at huge sort after hospitals as well.
The nurses and the doctors here are kind, helpful and caring and they see to it that their patient’s health is given the first priority.

I don’t have anything much to say about the medical staff here; they are simply above average but most of the times, they are nice to you. But the ER staff are highly unprofessional and a few of them quite small minded too.
Their paperwork is dishonest and horrible. When they bill you, they put charges of even those services which you have not availed during your visit to the hospital.
Trust me, it is a pathetic place to be and it is better not to step inside this place and even if you do, do not expect any top notch services but yes do expect to be billed till nose deep.

I was admitted here for a surgery which first of all didn’t take place on time because the doctor was busy with his own personal things; to busy to even inform the rest of the team. When he finally arrives, he has this shitty attitude towards me and the members of his team.
Then when it comes to my medications, I tell him frankly that I am not supposed to be taking a few of them and that’s when he starts yelling at me for now reason and kinda forces it down my throat. But it is of no use ultimately because it does not help with my pain. And then he all of a sudden changes my prescription and doesn’t tell me a word about it.
I strongly feel such doctor’s medical licenses should be cancelled at the earliest and goons like these shouldn’t be allowed to practice in the first place. There are high chances he could be mentally deranged.

Whenever I pass this place and the hospital comes into my line of sight, the way it still functions and stands tall concerns me badly about people’s health and safety at the hands of the incompetent nurses and doctors here.
People who work here have no understanding of medical ethics and all they know are malpractices and how to cheat people to mint money. My entire family has gone through a lot in this hospital and it is from these very personal experiences, I urge people to stay away from this disgusting establishment.
People here have an atrocious mindset and such creatures shouldn’t ever be working in this hospital. They can talk you down, insult you, refuse treatment, throw you out and do many other things but once you step in, they do not forget to bill you heavily for reasons no good.
Stay as far away as possible.

I have taken my girlfriend here twice on two different occasions because she was wheezing due to asthmatic problems. They have been great to her; loving, kind and friendly, they helped her cope with the situation and made her feel way better. They made things smooth for me by handling everything by themselves and did not let me be concerned of anything.
I would definitely recommend this place, especially their ER!
