I believe all the orthopedic surgeons at Flushing deserve a huge shout out. I am so thankful for all the help I received at this hospital, especially from the orthopedic team. A heartfelt thank you.
-Special props to Dr. L, who not only led the surgery but made sure I was comfortable throughout the entire journey, from pre to post surgery. What you guys do is very admirable and I will recommend this practice to anyone without a shred of doubt.

This is my experience:
I had to go to the ER at Flushing twice, both in the last month alone. My migraines have been occurring very regularly and the intensity of the pain has increased as well. When I sleep at night with a numb headache, I wake up at 2 am in the night unable to open my eyes because of the severity of the pain. Hence the ER was my only option. Flushing because it’s closest to my house and is covered by my insurance.

So on both occasions I’ve had some really nice nursing students take care of me, take my vitals etc. I can say with conviction that the health care at Flushing is first class. Of course I preferred the nursing team but the doctors were equally good. Very brilliant. They know what they’re doing and are very friendly. Will answer all your questions in a friendly tone and a hilarious way. There is no room for negativity at this hospital, something all patients would appreciate.

The attending physician who took care of me made sure that no one that entered my room turned on the lights all the way because Lord knows migraine patients cannot stand being woken up by even the faintest of lights. My puking sensations were fought with the medication prescribed to me and I was out of there the next day feeling surprisingly refreshed. All in all, it was an experience worth mentioning, especially in a review because I know how many people read this.

This post is for the great team at 5W Labor/Delivery- you guys did the best job. My wife is literally hysterical at this point (might just be all the hormones) but she can’t stop thanking you guys. She forced me to post this review right now because she didn’t want to wait. Also a huge shout out to the lactation team at Flushing- without you, my son would not be breastfeeding today, and the amazing nursery department that took care of my son and wife. You guys are rock stars. Also, the postpartum team who is working and will be working with my wife for the next couple of weeks, what you guys do for a living is really inspiring.

The residents at Flushing are downright adorable. My daughter-in-law had been in a car accident and was being prepped for surgery. And I literally saw one of the residents pray for her. So cute how much residents actually care, it makes it more tolerable when they grow up to be intolerable doctors (lol- jk).

The staff here is unbelievably nice and friendly. Contrary to what most people on Yelp feel. But my experience was nothing like I’d read. From the start, everyone was very nice to me and I had a severe panging pain in my stomach (what some people would regard as “not so urgent” in the ER but the staff did not treat me like that.

They asked me to lie down on a stretcher and then a PA came and saw me in a few minutes. After a few tests and a half hour, they informed me that I had ingested some bad fish and that was the reason for my stomach ache. If I didn’t come into the hospital, there was a chance it would react with my system in a bad way. So I was happy I came in even if it was as avoidable as a simple stomach ache.

My wife gave birth to our first born daughter last year at Flushing and we had a very nice experience here. So when she got pregnant again, we didn’t even have to bat an eyelid before considering Flushing again. But we had a weird racist incident happen to us during a sonogram appointment the other day. So my wife is black and I’m white- which is something very acceptable in the 21st century. But the nurse helping us with the sonogram kept staring at us in a weird way, every time we held hands or I kissed her forehead. She is definitely Asian, not sure which country. We were very uncomfortable and are considering another hospital now.
