The hospital has a sprawling campus and one does feel good while they are here but the place has a lot that can be improved. The first and foremost is the attitude of the staff. They are rude and quite judgmental towards their patients.

I wouldn’t have come here if not for a friend of mine who recommended this place. I came in here and I was asked a few weird questions. Then, the nurses showed me attitude and made me wait for hours in end before I decided to walk out. And yea, they didn’t seem to care a bit even when I made my way out of the place.

The place is a source of comfort and I received excellent care while I was admitted here. The doctors, the nurses, the physicians, the technicians and all the other staff were all caring and professional.

I faced a terrible experience elsewhere trying to get some help and that’s when I rushed here to Elmhurst and I thank God for the right decision I made. I must appreciate the ER of this place; all they took was 15 minutes for a doctor to see me.

They know how to make efforts in the right direction and did their best to make me feel at ease. I would definitely recommend this place.

The place is nice looking with good infrastructure and that’s where it all ends. It has good buildings but nothing else. The ER wait time is longer than one can even imagine and the nurses and the doctors, the rudest ones on this planet.

Even the technicians and the janitors seemed to show a hell lot of attitude and I can never forget the dirty looks they gave me. None of them are bothered about you or the pain you have to go through; all they care is for their comfort and their pay checks.

Please don’t make the mistake of going here if you care for yourself.

I underwent a knee replacement surgery at this hospital and I am glad I chose this one out of every other hospital. I dreaded this surgery but the team of doctors who handled my case and the nurses who were assigned to me made things a lot more easier for me to handle.

Even the therapist I got was such a sweetheart. She ensured all my needs were thoroughly taken care of while I underwent physiotherapy with her. The nurses were marvelous creatures and was there to attend to me every single time I needed them.

I must say, every single soul working in that hospital was there for me at my beck and call. What more can a patient ask for! Highly recommended!!

I was here at their ER waiting room with my soon a few months back when my son had severe abdominal pain. Not only did they not do anything about it but they were also as rude as they could be to my poor son.

We were royally ignored while they had a gala time at the hospital. So, based on my experience, I would never recommend this place to anyone.

This hospital is the most convenient option for medical care in my case. But how I wish it was not because that horrible and horrendous the place is. I had always been a sickly child and things have not changed for the good even when I became an adult and that’s why my visits to the hospitals and doctors have become more of a routine.

All my life, I have been more to hospitals and clinics than I have been elsewhere. And this place did not ever make things better for me. I have been here umpteen number of times and I know I will be making more visits here though I would not step inside this place if I had a choice.

At times, my condition is so damn bad and I am in a very bad need of medical attention that I have to come running here although I hate to do that. The place is filled with freaks and I think every time I make out alive from this place, I am lucky.

Last year, when I was at Elmhurst, I figure out that the place has completely wrong information about me. It was totally inaccurate and I have no clue where they even got it from. When the doctor read it out to me, I told him it was all wrong and he was himself in a state of shock to hear that. I requested that he deletes it but he said he was not authorized to do it.

He suggests that I go to the admin department and I decide to take his advice. I go there with all my hopes pinned on to them and finally they tell me that they cannot delete all that wrong information or add anything.

I failed to understand what kind of a system is that. It is seriously not done and never good enough!!!

I brought in my brother here and very soon they diagnosed him properly and announced to us family that he needs a surgery. I was extremely happy that the doctors could figure out what was wrong with my brother and how they could tackle it.

I am glad the hospital staff were quick and effective in their ways and did everything to ensure the safety of my brother. I feel happy to see that he is in trustworthy hands.
