The orthopedic surgeons at Carney were just brilliant. My husband has never been so pleased with a surgery before and kudos to Dr. Sarge and his entire team for being the best.

I give Carney an excellent rating for their state of the art surgery unit. Some of the most talented people in the country work in this hospital and for good reason. They put hardworking and smart doctors and surgeons in the best of positions where they can thrive and do the best work for patients. Not only are they super efficient but also very caring about their patients. One of them went back home 2 hours late on his daughter’s 5th birthday because my wife was scared for her surgery the following day.

They are also real gentlemen- something my wife definitely appreciated. They have the best tableside (or in this case, bedside) manners. Do not invade your personal space and more importantly are very gentle with the patients. But something I particularly appreciated was how they kept me in the loop about everything. Even if it was as basic as changing the IV drip they’d let me know so that I wouldn’t have any questions later. And funnily enough I didn’t. What a great hospital.

If you’ve never been here before take someone who has before you go or better yet don’t go at all! Complete scam! For a simple headache/migraine attack they had me doing a bunch of tests and I had to do all the running around for the results! NO help from the staff and they overcharge you for everything! If you’re getting them done make sure your insurance covers it at least!

I just don’t understand some hospital employees sometimes. How they get away with being such bitches to the patients is beyond me. My father is 72 years old and I had to take him to the psych ward in the geriatrics department. He was frazzled but didn’t hesitate. I’d heard from a good friend of mine that Carney was one of the best hospitals in the country so when I googled it and saw the Yelp reviews I thought maybe it wouldn’t be the worst decision ever. But I was shocked after I saw the kind of service that goes around here. This care taker who was helping an older woman into her room was on her phone the whole time.

The poor lady tried twice to get her attention to tell her that they were going in the wrong direction. I then went up to the young lady and told her that the patient she apparently was tending to was calling her. The lady threw a nasty glare my way and disappeared into the crowd. I was weirded out, no doubt. Before allowing my father to get admitted in this hospital I wanted to make sure that that kind of care takers would not be assigned to my father. When I talked to some case workers they said that they were very aprticular when hiring care takers, and that one particular care taker was a volunteer from a medical college and she was getting her community hours in or such. I wasn’t entirely sure about it and asked my father what to do. He said he would be fine and see me in a week.

I left him and checked up on him every night. He seemed to be doing okay. But the next time I saw him he told me that the treatment was not going so well. Apparently the employees in the psych ward were very rude and unseemly. They often bullied the patients and call them retarded if they didn’t listen to them. This really got on my nerves and I got my father admitted into another hospital ASAP. One thing’s for sure, if you want rhe patient’s mental health to degrade by a huge factor then maybe consider this hospital but otherwise it’s a waste of your time and money.

The ICU team was spectacular- very timely- very professional- and above all very compassionate. Caring about the family members they will check on you as well as the patient from time to time. Loved the service.

When my uncle came back from Carney he told me of all the horror stories that went on in the psych department. And the weird part is that this is one of the most popular psych departments in the state. So word of advice: don’t listen to the hospitals because they are obviously advertising. Listen to testimonials of people who’ve actually gone through the horrifying experiences.

Giving Carney Hospital a 0 star rating would still be a disgrace I can’t believe I ever came to this hellhole.
My teenage daughter is 12 and has been having trouble sleeping of late.
Her 7 year old dog died three weeks ago and I have a theory..
But my worst decision was not taking her dog to a farm, it was bringing her to this hospital with zero respect or compassion for patients.
I figured at least they’d be sweet to children but no. One nurse was yelling bloody murder at my child because she was walking barefoot.
Shocked does not even begin to explain my reaction.
