HIPAA violations are galore here. I heard personal as well as confidential medical details of nearly six to seven persons being talked about very casually by the nurses and the doctors. I was shocked to see the patient rights being violated so blatantly. There is absolutely no privacy at this place…

Extremely knowledgeable and very supportive doctors and nurses. They helped my family and I get through what was definitely a very scary and worrying medical situation. The medical team was competent enough to get on the top of the medical situation and help my loved one recover very quickly. Highly impressed with the hospital and the facilities provided. Won’t hesitate to return. Would also recommend this hospital to everyone

My daughter was at this hospital a few days back for an endoscopy. The pediatric doc told me there were issues with her lungs, and he did not feel comfortable in anesthetizing her. There was real genuine care and compassion in his voice. This man is definitely a very good doctor. My daughter has had a rough few months on the medical front, and I was not sure if she would be able to bear the endoscopy. The doc asked us to wait for a month or two and then get the endoscopy done again. We have been to various hospitals, but we have never come across such compassion and care. This is the best place if your child needs medical care.

The medical team and the support staff out here is the best. I do not care a bloody damn about the negative reviews because those reviews are for people who need some attention and pampering in the hospital. They forget the fact that they aren’t the only ones who are there seeking care. One has to learn patience when visiting the hospital. Things will not move according to your whims and fancies. I have always sought care here, and I have not yet faced any type of problems .
