I thank my parents for teaching me the importance of staying calm when faced with a burning desire to hit somebody….

I had to visit this joke of an ER for pain relief. What does the nincompoop masquerading as a doctor do? He offers me a choice of fentanyl or morphine and a referral to my GI doc (he is another jerk). The pain meds did not do anything. I ended up visiting the Mayo Clinic site and self-diagnosed my ailment. Armed with the knowledge, I went to nearby Urgent Care, where an excellent doctor confirmed my diagnosis. Necessary meds were given, and I am on my way

This review was long overdue.

My last visit to Bridgeport Hospital was in 2018, June of 2018 to be precise. I had a procedure performed by Dr. Sara Richer. Thanks to her, I am pain-free and able to live a normal life. Her expertise showed in the way the procedure was done. I did not have any scar after the procedure. Thanks Dr. Richer for the excellent care that you and your team provided me. All of them did a wonderful job, and I can still remember your beaming smiles despite it being more than the year. I sincerely hope that you continue providing such excellent care to everyone

I had an enjoyable experience at this place over the past 72 hours. My father had to show up in the ED on a very, very busy night and the care which the staff provided to my father was amazing. Entire staff was courteous, compassionate, and professional. The quality and standard of care provided were exceptional. Besides providing care, I appreciate the way the team took care of small things like the dimming of the lights and ensuring that there was no noise on the floor and making sure that my dad had a peaceful sleep.

Moving forward, Bridgeport Hospital will be the preferred hospital.

I received outstanding care at Bridgeport hospital. I was brought here by my wife after I had a burning fever and was throwing up. Spent four days here. The staff was excellent, and every single individual involved in my care made sure that I was comfortable during my stay here and I received top-notch care. I could say it was excellence all the way. Thanks to the wonderful and high-quality care, I was back to my normal self pretty quickly
