Well, this is a joke of a hospital. You come here if you are fed up with life and want to die. Do not expect yourself to be treated at this shithole. They take extra efforts to make you feel more wretched and cursing yourself for selecting this useless hospital. The nursing team is filled with jerks, who seem to have an internal competition to see who is dumber. Their motto seems to be – maintain the mediocrity…

Unfortunately, I was patient at this shithole for three looooong daysss….During my stay here, the staff ensured that I was made to beg for everything…even my meds. They also did not intimate anything to my family members who were shit worried about what was happening to me. Their stock answer for anything was “she is doing great…she will be out soon.” Yes, out of this world. Unable to bear this torture anymore, I requested the doctor to discharge me. He duly obliged, and at last, I was free from this prison. The first thing I did after getting released was to go to another hospital and get appropriate care.

I have never encountered this much apathy, towards work, and towards patients. The ideal thing to do is to shut it down.

My sister brought my father to this ER for evaluation after having an unfortunate incident at the Dialysis Center. The staff was superb – Prompt Service and great caring. They are very knowledgeable, attentive, and pleasant. My sis could not recollect the names of the nurses and doctors in the ER, but according to her, they were angels. The doctor had a sneaky suspicion that something apart from the kidney was wrong, and they wanted my dad to stay one or two days more so that they could conduct some more tests. He was right. He was also suffering from a gall bladder infection, which the earlier hospital was not able to detect. They started prompt treatment, and by the end of the week, my dad was back to his normal self.

My mother was a patient here till yesterday. She had to spend a week in the ICU. She was provided exceptional care while in the ICU. The nurses were great and always attentive to any needs of my mother. The nurses and the doctors were caring, compassionate, and definitely knew their way around. Thanks for taking care of my beloved mother. I sincerely hope that the doctors and the nurses who attended to her care reach the zenith of their professional career and always remain in everybody’s heart. You would always be in our family’s prayers.

Had to rush here after a persistent cough became more problematic. I was coughing so bad that I felt my ribs would break. When I reached the ER, my BP had shot up to 225/126. A bonus was a severe headache. I was taken in and then back to the doctor in a reasonable time. The doctor was a pleasant gentleman who had exceptional bedside manners. He asked me relevant questions and suggested that I just nod if I feel what he was asking was correct. My cough turned out to be bronchitis, which had become a little serious due to my negligent attitude. He prescribed apposite treatment.
