I feel that as I write this review, I need to mention every single person I encountered during my father’s admission at the Huntington Hospital because it really was like a God send. My father has had over 4 strokes in the last 2 and a half years and it has been pretty scary, shook up the entire family altogether. The first two times, he was rushed into another medical facility (don’t wish to say the name) and they took a few months to get him stabilized. Even so, he kept complaining of feeling “stuffy” and soon enough, had two other strokes.

The final time was a few months ago and was rushed into the ER at Huntington. I figured “round three”. But in reality, it was the final round at a hospital, as my father has fully recovered and not complaining about any ailments since. They basically did in a week what the other two hospitals couldn’t do in a few months and this seemed like a miracle to me. The doctors and other medical professionals at Huntington take their job extremely seriously, so much to the point where I knew a few nurses who stuck around post their shift, just to help my father feel more comfortable. I owe them my life.

Some of these amazing people are Dr. Yang, who worked day and night to tend to my father and gave him hope for a better tomorrow. This was one of the main reasons my father even recovered, because it was the one thing lacking at the other hospitals too. Nurse Jen was the one person who knew what to say to make my father feel more relaxed, and far away from fright. My father said she was the shining star in that hospital, and still says she and Dr Yang are his angels.

Apart from this, we also had a young attending who took care of my father for a few days when Dr. Yang had a family emergency. This was very impressive- the attending was extremely professional- didn’t mingle much, but her work ethic was very admirable. Something I’d never seen in a hospital before. She specialized in neurology and knew the answers to almost all the questions I had, even the dumb ones (haha). To think that I’d visited Huntington when I was younger, I can say that they have definitely improved, infinitely. Thank you to all who helped improve my father’s condition, I will forever be indebted to you.

Something that I found fascinating and different about this hospital was that they were open to suggestions. I had come in due to a case of hernia and was in a lot of pain. I didn’t have any bad encounters with the doctors or nurses, everyone was neutral with me. It’s not like they were extremely nice either, but no complaints. At the end of it, though, I was asked to give a review and areas where they could improve upon. Not sure if it was just for that day, or if it’s a regular thing but that is appreciable. It shows they are open to suggestions and willing to change. Nice.

My wife and I just got home from her delivery at Huntington and I felt it was necessary that I post this review today itself before the joy wears off. It was one of the happiest days of my life and my wife said the delivery was very comfortable, thanks to the excellent team of doctors and nurses at the delivery ward at Huntington. The postpartum service provided post-delivery was also very effective.

I had to be rushed to Huntington immediately. The doctor was nice and I could leave in a few days. But then I got a bill of over $1200 and wondered why this wasn’t covered by my insurance. There were also some threats and conditions about paying it within 3 weeks. But when I called the insurance company, I found out that they only paid 30% of the bill and said the rest was “disallowed charges” so they wouldn’t pay it. The medical group then just sent me the bill and didn’t mention anything about the insurance company, and expected me to send it. VERY SHAMEFUL.

Huntington may not have the best of services in other departments, but the ER is trustworthy. This was my second time at the ER and I had no issues whatsoever

I don’t usually give out bad reviews, but the ER at Huntington left me no choice. It was the scariest, most horrendous experience I’ve ever had in my life. We were in the hospital for over 9 hours, and literally got to talk to the doctor for all of 5 minutes. We waited for some 4 hours in the waiting room where there was no heat. There were sick patients all around us and a screaming baby who refused to stop crying for 4 hours NON- STOP. The receptionist refused to listen to anyone and said the doctor would be late to show up, so all we could do was wait.

One of the patients wet themselves and the room started smelling very bad. They just put towels on the floor and left it at that. The smell was still as pungent as ever and they refused to do anything about it. I was sitting very close to that patient and could barely hold it together, but I had to sit down because there were only so many empty chairs and a lot of people standing. Could not believe how this is actually a hospital. There is no such thing as sanitation, and a request would be to spruce up the waiting room. I understand it’s not an area the doctors or nurses come to, but that’s where the patients first come to.

My cousin said she had the smoothest delivery at Huntington’s and I read a lot of good reviews about mothers feeling comfortable here. I too decided I wanted a suite here and I have to say, it really was the perfect delivery (baby #3). The rooms, the staff.. everything was 100% top quality.

I wish I could give a “no-star” rating to this hospital because that’s how horrible my experience was with Huntington and I can guarantee you will have the same. Came here with the worst stomach cramps and left feeling just as horrible.

Not only was the nursing staff extremely hostile and condescending, but they told the doctor that I was against the treatment, when that was not the case. All I said was that I wouldn’t take any medicine that the doctor hadn’t explained to me himself which seems reasonable to me.

Then, the doctor approached me and was rude too, saying I wouldn’t feel better unless I took the medicines. I am definitely going to lodge an official complaint against him and I hope his license gets revoked. This kind of doctor would only do someone harm, let alone good.
