Making a visit to a hospital is never a pleasant experience but things could feel a shade better depending on the way you are treated and made to feel in a hospital. I have been to the ER of many hospitals; at times I have had good experiences and at times the way I was treated made me run for my life.

I would like to count my experience at Dominican as a good one! I never feel good visiting a hospital but the nurses and the doctor who took care of me here made me feel a lot better and made sure they did everything to alleviate my pain. To know that you are surrounded by compassionate people is a big relief in itself!

I am not sure how people can talk good about this place when they treat every single patient of theirs in a crappy manner! I have even overheard the employees of this hospital mentioning it to one another that if a patient is bothered about his life, he should run far away from this place and never come back in here.

They have no professionalism or ethics in their behavior and trust me not a single person will talk good about this place and if at all you see someone has written a good review, let me warn you – its all fabricated and nothing is true!

If you have at least 1% value for your life, stay away!

I was accompanied by a loved one to this hospital and the technicians and nurses were kind enough to explain the entire procedure not only to me but also to my dear one. This place has a very good set of technicians who know their job thoroughly well; they know what is going wrong with you and what exactly they need to do in order to rectify it.

When I got discharged, I got to know that meanwhile when I was admitted there, they would check regularly on my loved one to see how she was doing. I couldn’t have asked for more from a hospital.

Bonus according to me – the bathrooms were sparkling clean!

I did not want my husband to go to this sub-standard place but during an emergency situation we had no options left. When I took him there, I was shocked to see the sorry state of affairs in the place.

The room where he was admitted had no facilities absolutely. The place was filthy and it looked as if it had not been cleaned in ages. I asked for a glass of water and they took ages to bring it to me. And finally when they did, there were particles floating around in it.

I regret taking my husband there! Please do not go to this mucky place! Definitely not worth a visit!

I cut my hand quite deep by mistake while working in the kitchen and I tried to manage it at home but had to come here because the cut was deep and the blood flow wouldn’t stop. I had to drive down to the ER and Dominican being the closest to my home, I drove down here.

I was lucky that there was no wait time at all in the ER and the doctor who was on duty was kind enough to sew it for me. I was lucky to be in and out in like half an hour or maybe 45 minutes at the most. He also asked the nurse to give me some extra set of bandages in case I needed them while at home.

Plus, a week later, I even got a call from this facility asking how I was doing and how my hand was and reassured that I could call back anytime in case I needed any assistance.

Now, I have not seen most hospitals doing this and going to such lengths to make sure their patient is doing well. So, I am impressed and I would prefer to go there in case there is any medical requirement.

My husband sprained his ankle badly and was in a lot of pain. I took him to the ER of Dominican and was somehow trying to calm him down as I waited with him in the ER. Then arrives the bitch!!

First of all, she gives us those dirty looks instead of reassuring ones and then she curtly asks me to get out and wait for my husband in the waiting room. I have never seen a lady as inconsiderate as her. I so much wished I could be there by my husband’s side and make him feel better but naaahhh!!! This bitch wouldn’t let that happen even though I begged her.

Later when we came back home, my husband revealed to me that the bitchy nurse accused him of being a drug addict. Had I been there next to him, I would have given her good. Such people shouldn’t be working in a hospital at all in the first place!
