I am not sure how should I view my visit to the Atlantic General Hospital past Monday. I was not feeling well, general malaise, and gnawing pain in the stomach. I did not want to take any risk and went to the ER. I was registered in a reasonable time by a lady with a stiff upper lip. She was not rude but was not very friendly either. A lovely nurse checks me in, and after a wait of an hour (some emergency), I am taken back to the room. A wonderful doctor comes to evaluate me. A thorough evaluation is done, and two scripts are written, and the doctor goes away. I feel satisfied and then start walking out when I suddenly get doubt and want clarification. Lo, behold…both the doctor and nurse have vanished. I just could not find them. I ask one or two other nurses, but they could not clear my doubt. Doubt uncleared, I go ahead and fill the script. Even the pharmacist is also not able to help me. If I ignore the receptionist and the vanishing act, then this was a great experience. If I include them, well might call it an average at best.

I had the misfortune of visiting Atlantic General Hospital ER after my son developed a sudden illness. We had to encounter the most unprofessional and incompetent nurses and doctor. I am not sure how the so-called doctor even earned his qualification. He had no clue on how to treat a child. The nurse was even worse. She was rude and did not know basic things like administering an IV. She ended up hurting my child very badly. The hospital is filled with these quacks. I would not bring my family or myself at this hospital to seek care.

One of the WORST urgent care!!!! The staff does not know anything. They provided a very shitty service. I am so glad that I do not reside in this neighborhood. I won’t even bring my neighbor’s dead dog here!!!!

Excellent customer care!!!! My daughter had scheduled outpatient surgery, and they treated her well. Everybody from the check-in to nurses, anesthesiologist, surgeon, pharmacy, volunteers, as well as food service were professional, comforting, and thorough. They were attentive to her needs and looked after her very well. Very pleased with the way my daughter was treated

I think I was lucky enough to be treated by a wonderful doctor. For the love of God, I am not able to recollect her name, but she was great. Very friendly, warm, and gave respect. She explained my illness in detail, encouraged me to ask questions, and answered every one of them with a smile. Her treatment was also excellent, and thanks to her wonderful care, I am on my feet now. Very happy with the treatment
