This was one of the quickest ER visits that I have ever had. The front desk was super fast and helped me out with the form filling. The lady even walked me to the ER area, yes actually walked me, and not just giving directions.

The triage nurse was also excellent and before long, I was being taken back to the room. I was evaluated by a wonderful doctor who was very professional and with excellent bedside manners. She heard me, evaluated me, ordered some tests, explained the results, and then took my inputs while preparing a treatment plan. Very happy and satisfied with the way I was treated here.

The whole visit lasted for two hours, which including waiting for the tests and then the results…

It is better to do a Google check and treat yourself instead of coming here and getting treated. I had painful ankles and wrists, and any movement would result in sharp shooting pain. I went into the ER yesterday night, and it was the biggest mistake of my life.

The ER nurse took me in and said the doctor would be seeing me in a few minutes. The “few minutes” stretched to an hour, and the shift changed. A new nurse came, and I asked her when the doctor would see me. She was clueless and said she would check. She came after 15 minutes and told that there was only one doctor for the whole ER and he was working very hard.

I decided to wait for 30 minutes more, and as luck would have it, two patients in front of me just upped and left. I was taken back to the room where a doctor saw me for five minutes and then prescribed antibiotics, the same ones which I found when I searched Google. Could have visited my PCP and got a script for the same…

Pissed off……

I had a medical problem and had to be admitted here for a week. Must say, received very good care. The staff was excellent. They were honest and told things very clearly. They also kept me in the loop as the treatment progressed. Thanks to the care provided by these wonderful people, I was able to get back on my feet very quickly

My wife had an amazingly wonderful experience here. She underwent successful surgery and got the best possible postop care. The in-charge nurse was so professional and quiet while doing things that she did not realize when she slept off and had the most blissful sleep ever. A big shout out also for the amazingly delicious food. Did not see that one coming.

The whole experience was good. I would recommend this hospital to everyone

The hospital is staffed by some nice people around, but I highly doubt their competence. The lad in the blood lab was a nice fella but just did not know how to draw the blood. Twice, my veins got nicked, and I had to come back two times for what should have been a simple blood draw that would not have taken more than 15 minutes.

I would have loved to visit again, but I cannot risk my life here…..
