According to my parents, Lahey Hospital is the best, and they cannot do anything wrong. I live in California and was visiting my parents when I suddenly felt very ill and developed severe stomachache. After hearing my parents praise this hospital, decided to give it a visit. Big Mistake. The registration lady was very rude and did not feel like answering any question. The nurse was no better.

She cut me off when I wanted to ask something. She was also shouting at an elderly lady who clearly was in discomfort. These folks made me wait for nearly three hours before taking me back to the room. The doctor came, did a very, very, very quick evaluation, made a diagnosis, and sent me on my way. I might have spent maybe a minute with him.

Won’t be back. Awful place

I have autoimmune issues, and last Thursday, things flared up, and I was in acute discomfort. My father brought me to this terrible emergency room. We were checked in at 9:00 AM and did not see a doctor till 3:00 PM. I was in severe pain, and the nurses felt that I was enacting a drama to get pain meds. Finally, at 3, I was taken back to the room, and the doc ordered a test and then based on the result, started the treatment. He was very evasive when I asked him about the test, its results, and the treatment given. BS American healthcare at its best. After visiting this harrowing place, I felt it would have been better if I had stayed back home. For sure, will not step in again here!!!!

Lahey provided my wife with the best possible care that they could have given. She suffered a stroke while exercising. I rushed her to Lahey in an ambulance. While my son and I were filling the forms, nearly ten medical professionals descended and started attending to Lissy.

We were in the hospital for nearly 15 days, and they provided excellent care. The nurses, doctors, the foodservice, and even the housekeeping were attentive to her needs. They made sure that both of us were comfortable while she was in the hospital, recovering.

The fact that I can spend time with my beautiful wife is all because of the wonderful care that Lissy got here. Have decided that we would shift our care here

Lahey is the best. The staff is lovely, caring, very courteous, and highly professional. They know what they do. This is my go-to hospital for everything, be it primary care or visiting different specialties like cardiology, orthopedics, etc. Have undergone three orthopedic surgeries which were successful in resolving my issues. The caregivers are great and ready to walk that extra mile if it ensures that you would recover quickly. I am happy that my healthcare is in very good hands

The staff at Lahey Hospital is the best. They are professional and know how to take care of their patients. I had visited the ER for a medical emergency which was not resolved by three Urgent Cares. They ended up making my condition worse. The staff was great and did not make any fuss. They got down to work and after a three-day stay, I was on the mend.

Blown away by the exceptional care and attentiveness provided by this excellent staff. Everybody seemed genuinely concerned about my health and ensured that I recovered quickly…Best hospital I have ever been to.
