Have tasted the food before at the cafeteria. It was not tasty, and was either too salty or was too liquidy. However, all this changed when I tasted shrimp linguini a few days back. It was excellent. The dish had nearly half-a-dozen large, tender, and juicy shrimps. It also contained mushrooms, young asparagus, broccoli, carrots, and different types of peppers. The sauce was delicious. That was not it. The cafeteria also served a small fountain drink along with this heavy but delicious dish. I would certainly come back for this kind of food.

Best hospital ever. IU Health North Hospital is a magnificent building. The hospital is run by one of the most professional, knowledgeable, and friendly staff that I have ever come across. I had to stay in this hospital for some days, and the staff did not disappoint me with their service or quality of care. I am very pleased that I chose this hospital for my treatment. I would not hesitate in recommending this exceptional hospital to anyone. Thanks for everything IU Health North

This is a bit dated review for a visit which happened in August 2018. My daughter and I had gone to the hospital seeking treatment for her obesity. After waiting for two hours, we were seen by the rudest doctor ever – Dr. Gilmore. This lady thought that smiling and greeting the patients might result in something bad happening to her. She sent out negative vibes at the very outset. She did not even talk to us about what made us think that my daughter was obese, what she ate, her lifestyle, you know the basic stuff. Instead, she spoke about undergoing a bariatric surgery which would not be covered by insurance and also a referral for a sleep study. I do not have the slightest idea as to why she gave a referral for a sleep study. I felt the whole meeting was less about understanding our issues and was more about marketing stuff like referrals and meal subs.

When she realized that I was not too keen on the procedures, we were dismissed without any follow-up. She did not hesitate to charge me $120 as a consultation. WOW!!! So much for a person who just told my daughter that she was obese and surgery was the only option, and if surgery is not done, she will remain obese for the rest of her life — incredible way to motivate a 13 YO girl who is still coming to terms with her weight issues. Save your money and time. Please do not visit this hospital for weight struggles!

I had hernia surgery at this hospital way back in 2017. The surgery was conducted by an Indian doctor named Dr. Banerjee (did not catch the first name). The surgery went according to plan. On the scheduled day, I was swarmed with four to five nurses whose main job was to ensure that I was comfortable both before and after the surgery. They offered warm blankets. The doctor had excellent bedside manners, was composed, and answered all my questions. After the surgery, the doctor came to visit me and inquire about me. A month later, I was completely healed. I highly recommend this excellent facility for friendly staff as well as a few volunteers. The parking is free and getting around into the building is super easy

I was rushed to IU Health North ER by my wife for a lower abdominal pain, swelling, as well as other symptoms. The ER gave me fluids. Once the fluids were done with, I was ushered out of the ER without even seeing a PA or doctor. I was given discharge papers, which stated that I should seek immediate care if I had any of the nine symptoms that were mentioned. They conveniently forgot that I had nearly six of the nine symptoms when I was discharged. These idiots sent me home incredibly frustrated and in considerable pain

I used to visit St. Vincent for treatment but shifted to IU North after my family physician shifted here. It was a big change initially, but trust me, it has been pretty good. The staff is very professional, caring, and considerate. I was treated with care and compassion. This facility has everything that one needs for getting good medical care. Pleased that I shifted here

I visited the ER a few nights ago with a severe migraine. The check-in was done quickly. The nurse asked me to wait for some time. I waited for nearly three hours before a PA saw me. The PA seemed in a hurry and did not even hear me out. She just came, asked what my problem was, and then wrote a medication, and a shot, and dismissed me. The bill for this was $600. Seeing the bill, my migraine came back with renewed intensity.

AVOID THIS HOSPITAL!!!!
