DO NOT COME HERE!!!!

I was admitted after I went in for thoughts of self-mutilation. Far from being empathetic to my cause, the nurses belittled me and talked me down. I was treated as if I was a bumbling idiot who did not know anything. I was told that I would be meeting a therapist the next day morning. The fellow never came and I discharged myself.

These nincompoops also wanted me to share a room with a really violent person who was screaming all the time. How the hell did they think it was a great idea?

Long story short, if you love yourself and your loved ones, then do not take the risk of coming here. This hospital is not worth the time and money.

This review is long overdue. I was here in 2017 to deliver my child. If these angels were not there, I would have been lying in my grave. The nurses and doctors are exceptional. The nurses are compassionate and would walk that extra mile for making you comfortable. Doctors are highly knowledgeable and are ready to think out of the box if it would help in saving your life.

My labor was hiccup-free, but I developed complications after delivering my baby. These angels went out of their way to address the issue and save my life. I am coming back if I plan on having a second child

Exceptional ER team!!!!

Went in for severe backache around 2:00 AM and was diagnosed with a kidney stone. Within 15 minutes, I was in a room getting pain meds. I was undergoing a CT scan in half-an-hour and only when they felt that things were under control did they ask for my insurance info. They treated me like a human being and ensured that my pain was addressed first. It felt nice. Very happy with the whole ER visit

My husband had a torrid time while he was in this dump. He had a high fever and was severely dehydrated. The ER was quick, and he was transferred to a room for observation.

We thought that Jack would be getting the same level of care on the floor as he got in the ER. Were we wrong? The bloody idiots literally forgot about him. In other words, he was ignored. He should have been periodically monitored, but they did not do that. These f*****g idiots did not even come when his IV was conking due to presence of air in it.

Waited for the next day morning, got him discharged and went to a real hospital which took care of its patients!!!

My girlfriend was in considerable pain and had to be rushed to the ER as she started losing consciousness due to pain. The ER staff was swift. They did not wait for the registration to get completed. She was admitted right away, and the treatment started. After a stay of three days, we were finally back home. Very impressed and ultimate respect for the nurses and doctors for their quick thinking
