My physician works out of here, and so does some of my other specialists. I have been to the ER as well as have had two surgeries here. I have nothing but praises for them. The staff and doctors are very professional and provide a quality of care which can be matched with those offered by some of the biggies of the industry.

The ER is friendly, fast, and very accurate. I do not think I will be shifting my care anywhere else unless suggested by the beautiful souls who function out of here, and I do not see that happening in the near future

Get your scans done somewhere else and bring the copies to the referring doctors if they work out of here. If you plan to get it done here and take it to your providers, then I would suggest taking a day off from your work, because you might end up waiting for hours just to get the scan/imaging done and then wait for few more hours to get the results.

Make no mistake, you will be taken in very quickly, but then made to wait for hours. I made the mistake of getting scans done here thinking that since my providers are here, things might get speeded up. Boy, was I wrong?

Won’t commit the same mistake again.

My husband has been coming to the Grandview ER quite frequently since the past few months as he battles issues caused by an accident a few years back. The ER staff is friendly, very fast, and offer the best possible care. The ER service is much faster than any other hospital in the neighborhood.

The staff does not hesitate to greet you, offer a smile, and answer any questions thrown at them. They do not beat around the bush and provide correct answers. The best thing, everything is explained in plain, simple English. The staff does genuinely care for you. Best ER in the whole county. Highly recommended

I had one of the most pleasant stays at Grandview Medical Center. Everyone was friendly and genuinely cared for me. The front desk clerk, the nurses, doctors, specialists, the support services, everyone took great care of me. Thanks to everyone from the bottom of my heart!
