BronxCare Health System located at Fulton Avenue, Bronx, NY is a very good hospital. I called it good because this center has many clinics in one place. We need not go to different places to get ourselves treated. I had gone into the ER with a severe backache, and the ER doctor advised me to meet an orthopedist whose office was nearby. I met the doctor who diagnosed me as having severe muscle pull and prescribed me medication and also taught me various postures to avoid the recurrence of the backache. All of this was done under two hours, something not expected at other places. I would suggest all to visit this place unless you have a grave medical issue that needs highly specialized care.

My grandpa was a regular at the eye clinic of BronxCare Health System (previously Bronx Lebanon Hospital). He has been visiting the hospital for many years now, so is not a totally new patient. He has issues with cataract and glaucoma and every time he met a specialist (each time a different guy) they said he is not considered fit for surgery. Things came to such a pass that doctors at the same hospital (but different specialties) started asking my grandpa why he was not undergoing surgery. They understood the need, but his eye specialist(s) did not see the need.

We finally got frustrated and decided to meet a specialist in Manhattan and guess what – he is eligible for surgery after all. He underwent surgery and is now recouping. The Eye clinic at BronxCare is the worst I have seen in my life and is filled with idiots who seem to keep requirements of the patients pending just to ensure that they meet their targets.

BEWARE!!!! DO NOT VISIT EYE CLINIC AT BRONXCARE HOSPITAL!!!! GO FOR A BETTER SERVICE AT A DIFFERENT LOCATION!!!

BronxCare Health System is garbage. The doctors are snappy; the staff is disrespectful and very rude. The staff and doctors are not bothered about patients. Safety and security are also very lax. I lost a mobile phone from my bag. I did not realize the theft until I reached home. I raised this issue with the management, but they were least bothered about it. Forget acting on my complaint; they did not even say anything in this regard.

The hospital also does not have any respect for its patients. I saw a nurse shouting at a kid with a fractured hand. The poor kid was in severe pain, and the nurse could not understand it. Overall, my experience at BronxCare Health System was horrible. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND BRONXCARE HEALTH TO ANYONE!!!!

This is a good place to get oneself treated. This hospital is a boon for patients like us who are dependent on Medicaid for getting ourselves treated. I have visited the place several times and have never faced any sort of issues. I have interacted with many doctors, nurses, technicians, surgeons, etc. and all of them were very good. They were gentle, caring, and ready to help patients. Would keep coming back to this hospital.

There have been countless horror stories of BronxCare and its ancestor (Bronx-Lebanon) that I always think twice or thrice before entering into this hospital. However, last Sunday, my son developed a very high fever, and his pediatrician advised us to take to the nearest ER immediately. Imagine my situation when I realized the nearest ER was BronxCare. Still, with my son’s temperature increasing, we prayed a silent prayer and went to the ER. The ER staff, to our pleasant surprise, was very attentive and caring and immediately started working on my son. They stabilized him and then shifted him to the floor where he stayed for three days. During our stay there, the nurses were professional and took care to ensure that he was comfortable and their care ensured that my son recovered from his mystery illness (all the tests were clear) without any major problems. I'm grateful to the entire BronxCare staff who took care of my son. You will always be in our prayers. God bless you all.

When compared to other centers affiliated to the Bronx Hospital system, BronxCare is the worst. In terms of atrocious service, pathetic, rude and disrespectful staff and a management that is keen on making money, this hospital is way ahead of others. I have faced issues at other hospitals also, but none of this nature.

I visited the ER with a big laceration on my right hand and nobody, absolutely nobody, saw me for nearly two hours. I sat there with blood dripping from the deep cut. Having had enough, I called my wife, and she took me to a nearby ER where they took good care of my wound. I would not be returning back to this useless hospital.

I do not care what others say about this hospital. My wife delivered our two kids at this hospital. Right from the assistants to the techs, nurses to the doctors, everybody involved in her care were wonderful. Their lactation consultant taught my wife how to breastfeed our first child.

Thank you, everybody, for taking good care of my wife and my kids. God Bless you all!!!

I would agree with people who say that BronxCare has issues. Yes, there are quite a few rotten apples who are destroying the hospital, but then I always ask myself should we surrender to these few rotten apples. Not all departments are bad. You also have some very good departments…departments like pediatrics, OB/GYN, etc. are very good. The staff of these departments takes good care of patients. I would trust my life and healthcare in the hands of these souls.

My simple request – Ignore the naysayers and trust these souls when it comes to your healthcare.
