I have had great hospital experiences whenever I came here seeking medical care. The staff has always been very friendly and jovial with me. They are professionals and know what they are doing, but that does not mean that they remain serious and do not smile. I have a great time with them whenever I am in the hospital. Happy to seek care here

If you are on your death bed and this is the only ER left in the whole world, I would suggest you take your chance and remain at home. My wife had our kids here, so I knew that the hospital as such was great and people were great. Never been to the ER, so had no idea how they functioned. I came to know about that last week when I went there with severe stomach pain.

The staff was very lazy and completely rude to the patients. They were least bothered about what was happening around in the ER waiting room. They were busy talking to each other. I was getting angry with the wait when I realized that the elderly gentleman beside me was waiting patiently for more than six hours to be seen. He was not even in a position to shift hospitals, poor soul. I waited for nearly four hours before I got up and asked the nurse what was happening. She replied very nonchalantly, “Things are slow. You have to learn patience when you come to an ER. The old fellow needs to be seen first, and then your turn would come. Maybe an hour or two.” I was shocked. Waited to 30 minutes more and then decided to leave. I informed the nurse, and she did not seem to care at all. Never thought would encounter this kind of behavior from such a great hospital.

I had to, unfortunately, visit this ER last Friday after a hearing a sudden snap in my back and resultant back pain. I was rushed here, and the team took over my care immediately. They ensured that I was seen by a doctor in quick time, had imaging done, and when everything was clear was discharged with the least amount of fuss. My ER visit was completed in just an hour….Very happy with the service
