The doctors appointed by this hospital are wonderful human beings and I feel blessed to have known them and be under their care. This hospital has wholesome care and treatment options and it definitely offered more than we could ask for.

Totally satisfied and happy with the care here and I would highly recommend this place.

I can clearly see that things have gone downhill at this place and I do not know who to blame for that. But I am the unlucky one who has to bear the brunt. Recently I was in here due to severe chest pain and they performed a few stupid tests but couldn’t draw a conclusion on what was wrong with me. They did not get my medications right either and did all kinds of trial and error stuff on me.

They told me this at one point and then they called up and said something else has been revealed from the tests and this went on. I finally got so damn confused and pissed off with them that I couldn’t stand their phone calls.

I finally ditched them and went elsewhere and now I have the right diagnosis and some good peace of mind.

Ascension Borges was a wonderful hospital once upon a time but they have gone to dogs recently. I never experienced any problem here all these years but the last time I was here, I had a horrendous experience.

They made it a nightmare for me and more so because it was my husband who was admitted here and I was scared for his well-being. I seriously wish they had taken better care and not made things so troublesome for me.

Things have gotten really worse and I hope it gets better soon.

I had to undergo a colonoscopy and for the same anesthetic had to be administered to me. Now that’s when things really got out of hand. I was not numbed and the doc injected the painfully burning medication. I could feel my inside burning and it literally made me jump around the room.

I have undergone colonoscopies before but no one else managed to make it a hell of an experience for me like how these ones did.
