JFK Medical Center has always treated me with care. In fact, their quality of care is so good that we always come back to get ourselves treated here. I did face an unpleasant situation once, but I nipped it in the bud. Overall, excellent staff who is genuinely concerned about your health.

One has to be very alert and raise your voice to demand medicines and basic care at this hospital. I had slipped very badly and hardly was able to put my foot down. I was in agonizing pain and went hobbling into the ER. The guard opened the door, but nothing else. One or two nurses saw me but did not care to bring a wheelchair. I went to the front desk, was directed towards the ER where I was triaged and asked to wait for my turn to see the doctor. I saw him after 90 minutes. He was a good doctor and ordered an immediate CT scan. But guess what, these idiots do not know the meaning of immediate. I was made to wait on a cold and bare bed for nearly three hours before the CT was taken.

An IV was also set up, but the nurse forgot about that, and my wife woke me up after noticing blood in the IV tube.

Visiting this hospital is a sheer waste of time and money. Go elsewhere and seek care. At least you would be treated well. In the unfortunate event of you or your family member needing to visit this hospital, then make sure that they hear you loud and clear.

For me, this was the ridiculous ER experience! It should be shuttered.

I used to like this hospital a lot and would not hesitate even for a second to seek care here. I do not know what happened to them. The quality of care has slipped several notches. I brought my daughter to the ER with high fever and complaints of breathlessness as well as a rash. The doctors had diagnosed the rash as impetigo, but the ER doctor was not convinced. He said it might be scabies and wrote a script for scabies treatment. He ordered one single view chest x-ray and read it as normal and advised us to follow up with a pediatrician. The next day, the fever did not reduce, so we rush her to the pediatrician, who inspects her and orders us to take her to St Peter's Hospital. There, in the pediatric ER, they take PA and lateral chest x-ray and immediately diagnosed her as having pneumonia, which was at a severe stage. Thanks to the competent doctors of St. Peter’s, Ash has survived the scare and is on her way to complete recovery. Stay away from this shithole.

I suffered a stroke and resultant mobility issues. I was advised PT and took the same at the JFK Medical Center’s Rehab Center. I had four rounds of PT which lasted a year and four months. The therapists, as well as the assistants, are excellent. They are caring, and their motto is to make you become 100% better. No matter the difficulty, they would give their 100% to make you fit again. They do not treat you with kid gloves. There were instances when I wanted to quit PT, but then I realized they had only my betterment in mind. Thank you guys for getting me back to normal.

I underwent surgery a few days ago. The staff was outstanding! It was the first time going under the knife and I was very nervous, but the staff made me feel at home and explained everything about the procedure and took pains to answer all my concerns. The surgeon also repeated the whole thing. By the end of the pep talks, I was pretty relaxed and ready for the surgery. I would definitely recommend JFK Medical Center to everyone
