I am not completely in favour of going to this hospital or taking their services because you have a few people who are really good, know what they are supposed to do and hospitable to their patients. But then the majority of the staff are rude, difficult to handle and know absolutely nothing about their job.
From our family, I was the first one to be admitted here and I found the place to be dirty, filthy and understaffed. The nursing staff is horrible and even though they know nothing, they do not miss even a single opportunity to belittle you.

The next turn to be admitted in this ruddy place was my dad’s. I honestly don’t know how they could be so negligent with an old man like him. He was extremely ill and instead of keeping him there and monitoring his condition, they discharged him. Thankfully, I had the presence of mind and I took him to a different hospital in town where he was well taken care of.

Such useless good for nothing people they are!!!

The main problem of Easton is people who work here do not like to do their jobs but are very eager to receive their pay checks. I hate the rubbish attitude of the ones working here but I had to put up with them twice and both the times I had the worst experience of my life.

First of all, the staff do not converse with each other properly and there is always some kind of misunderstanding because of improper communication between one another.

Secondly, doctors do not take their job seriously and cater to the patient’s needs. They do things without consulting one another or taking an expert opinion and finally it is the patient who is in soup.

I have had very bad experiences here because of which I wouldn’t even want to come here even if I am dying. I absolutely do not have any hope that I would be saved here.

I am utterly disappointed with the services they offer at Easton Hospital. I was in here last week for some basic blood work. They got me registered and took the money from me quickly but when the time came to get things done, it looked as if they were gonna take a lifetime to do it. And this happened when there were not many people in the hospital and the lab staff were sitting simply without any work.

No matter how hard I think, I still cannot figure out what took them so long; 3 hours, seriously??? And when they called me in, none of them were even remotely helpful in telling me how to go about with the whole thing.

I am definitely not coming back for more.

Long time ago, I always looked down upon this hospital and I had presumed that this place is no good because it is small. But one fine day, when they were the people who saved my lives, I realized how wrong I was in judging a book by its cover.

That fateful day made me realize that size doesn’t matter at the end of the day; all that matters are the quality of services and the attitude of the staff who work there. The efficiency of the place lies in the hands of the people working there. These were the lessons I learnt during my stay in this hospital.

The place is clean and the staff is excellent and they are amazing with what they do.

The billing department is filled with cheats and liars and they are there simply to loot you off your hard earned money. To top it all, they are rude and incompetent.

It is important that one always has their eyes and ears open while getting their documents and during the billing process. I would advise everyone to take things in writing and ask an explicit explanation while getting their bill.

They will do everything in their capability to take extra money from you stating this and that and make delays in updating your insurance in order to bounce to collections.
