I can vouch and guarantee for this hospital. I was here with my father in law last year for a normal check up and people here treated us great. A lady named Lilian helped us check in without any hassles and made sure we were comfortable till a doctor or nurse was there to attend to my father in law.

I must say the nurses and other staff here were very kind to my FIL and treated him with a lot of nicety. They were efficient in their work and highly professional too. If I have to come to an ER or bring someone else to an ER, I am for sure only coming back to this hospital.

People here know very well how to go about with their work. They are all professionals with a golden heart. I brought my ailing mother here after she slipped off the stairs and sustained a few injuries. Since she was old, I was hell worried for her because I had no clue if her body would be able to take it and when I got her here, I felt helpless and didn’t know what to do.

But the staff over here were my lifesavers and they did everything in their capacity to save my mother’s life. They admitted her here for two days just to keep her under observation and during that time, I encountered the sweetest nurses on earth, here at this hospital.

If you are here, please know that you are in safe hands!

I was at Glendale for a procedure a few months back and I was shocked to see the state of their rooms, bathrooms, floors, mirrors etc. It was covered with dirt and grime and I could clearly make out that it had not been cleaned in ages. I was upset to see all of it that day and I decided that I would never return here unless I had a compelling reason to do so.

I would like to earnestly request the hospital staff to clean up this entire place if they do not want to lose out on their patients. A deep clean is the need of the hour.

I recently had a horrible experience here when was my nephew got admitted in this idiotic place. He was at my place for the weekend and that’s when all of a sudden he got sick, I rushed him here and it was then I got to see their true colors.

I don’t want to jot down the details of the horrible things my nephew had to experience there. I have already spoken to the hospital management about it and they said they were sorry about all those things that happened and would take some measures to rectify it.

I have my own doubts if they are actually gonna do that. But I have done my part and I seriously do not want to step into this facility again.

My daughter was born here last year and I still can’t thank the hospital and their staff enough for the wonderful services they provided us. I would like to thank the nurse who took care of me and my daughter; she is one of the kindest people I have ever met in my life.

She was a perfectionist in her job and delivered her duties to the best of her capabilities. I cannot forget the services she rendered me because I honestly required them at that point in time. I had a C-section and could hardly do anything on my own. Had it not been for her, I don’t know what I would have done!!!

The place is clean with all good modern facilities and the staff you have there are a wonderful lot, who are professional and cent per cent attentive to your needs. I don’t think there is anything more a hospital can offer.

I am writing this review to exclusively talk about one doctor. His name is Dr Oconner and he was my savior when I was admitted here because of some minor issues with my heart or the way he spoke about it, I felt it was all minor and nothing to be worried about it.

He has this innate ability to make you feel at ease and honestly speaking, just by looking at his face, I would feel all comfortable, safe, happy and calm. He had this aura about himself that made him caring as well as big fun to be around.

A 10/10 from my side to the cardiology department, especially Dr Oconner and his entire team.

This place is the worst hospital ever and I strongly suggest that no one should ever enter this place of they care for their health. One day I was having this freakishly crazy blood pressure spikes every now and then and I came running here expecting some help from the doctors. But on the contrary, they told me that nothing much can be done about it and it is quite a normal thing to have these spikes.

I was shocked to here such a statement come from a doctor and I knew I had to leave the place soon if I loved my life. I did so and pushed off to another hospital where they admitted me instantly.

My wife had a few complications in her pregnancy and I was awfully worried because of the same. But now I know we made the right decision by coming over to Glendale Memorial because the doctors here are so efficient; they handled the whole situation like a pro and saved my wife’s as well as my baby’s life.

A few things I felt, need upgradations but they are already carrying out a few renovations; so no comments about it as of now.
Other than that the service was amazing and every single staff had a wonderful attitude and they thoroughly cared for my wife and our baby boy!
