Had to take an ambulance to reach Good Sam following unbearable back pain. The folks take me in, run some tests, and the final diagnosis – need emergency gallbladder surgery. We discussed different alternatives, but the final consensus amongst the doctors and my wife and me was that surgical route was the best bet. I permitted them and ended up undergoing surgery. After a fortnight’s stay at the hospital, I was discharged. Thanks to these wonderful people, I am alive today to write this review. Given a choice, I would trust my care in the hands of these outstanding professionals

My wife is a retired veteran. She fell badly a few days ago and ended up breaking her thigh bone and knee. I called the hospital, and they asked us to bring her to the hospital immediately. When we arrived, they were waiting for her with a stretcher. She is taken in right away, and after imaging, she is taken to the OR, and immediate surgery is done, which ends up as a success. She had to stay at the hospital for a week due to an unexpected complication and a revision surgery. There is nothing negative to say against these people. The nurses, nursing assistants, doctors, lab tech, surgeons, floor doctors, everybody were excellent. Thank you!

This hospital does not deserve the huge amount of negative reviews that it gets on various forums. Good Sam is a wonderful hospital and is managed by some very excellent people. They are great, very understanding, caring, professional, and highly knowledgeable. My father underwent a hip replacement back in January. We had an excellent experience. Hardworking nurses, CNAs, excellent surgeon, and wonderful PT staff. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hospital for taking care of all the medical needs

I do not have any issues with the care provided by the doctors. My only concern is the ridiculous wait times. I can understand the delay if there is a huge rush of patients, and there are only a few doctors. But the delay is not okay if there are hardly any patients, and the visit is at 11:00 when the staff is somewhat free and relaxed. I went in at 11:00 in the night and had to wait for nearly three hours in a deserted ER before seeing a medical professional. It is not done. Do not waste your time by coming to this place. Go somewhere else where you will be seen quickly.

This review is for the labor & delivery unit. The nurses staffing the unit are very rude and have the least concern about patient care and privacy. There is no introduction and no greetings. There is a complete lack of hygiene. I have seen nurses picking up samples without gloves and bringing stuff to eat and drink with bare hands. I am not sure if they would have even washed their hands. We saw the GYN and then decided to seek care for my wife elsewhere. I do not want to risk the health and life of my wife and my unborn child….
