AVOID THIS HOSPITAL…plain and simple.

I had the misfortune of visiting this shithole after fracturing my ankle in a motorcycle accident. The receptionist was kind and helped me through the formalities. I thought it would be extended even in the ER…Boy, was I wrong? What I went through was like visiting hell and coming back.

The nurse was least bothered about what my problem was…she took me in after 25 minutes. My vitals were taken, and then the idiot wanted me to stand on my feet for taking weight…hello, I have a broken ankle, remember!!! I was taken back to the room after nearly five hours. Why? Because they could not get a goddamn doctor. When he finally came, the first sentence he blurted was “See, I do not give narcotics like that.” Yeah, as if I broke my ankle on purpose just to get narcotics. He orders an x-ray and then vanishes. I was not told about the result. I was put in a hard cast and sent on my way home.

Needless to say, things did not go well, and I had to be admitted to another hospital where surgery was required to rectify the problem. BTW, the Lakewood doctor discharged me without telling the results and yes, without any narcotics….so happy that I shifted my care to another hospital.

I am not sure about others experience, but I have received the best possible care while I was here.

I was driving through when I felt pain in my back and leg. It was sudden and sharp. I was told about this place and drove into it. The ER nurse came and took me in immediately. After a wait-time of 15 minutes, I was taken back to the room where the doctor was ready and waiting for me. It certainly was a first for me.

The doctor ordered a scan and came back to explain the results to me. It was a case of the impinged nerve. He also advised an overnight stay, which I politely declined. So what does he do; gave me some extra pills, in case it flares up again. Very happy with the way these wonderful folks treated me.

The hospital was very clean, and the food was also palatable. Though I won’t come back to this wonderful hospital, I would highly recommend it for the folks who stay nearby

A quick ER visit which helped in saving my life. I was having my dinner when suddenly a piece of bone got stuck in my throat, and I was not able to breathe properly. Heimlich was ineffective, and I was rushed to this ER. The ER nurse understood my problem, and despite there being a rush of patients, I was taken in and then back to the room. A doctor comes in, orders imaging, and then very expertly, removes the piece of bone. An hour of observation is ordered and when all-clear, I was discharged back home pretty soon.

Thank you, Lakewood, for employing such wonderful nurses and doctors. I won’t hesitate to return

I always believe that a hospital stay is akin to a being in a symbiotic relationship. You treat the staff and doctors well, and you get treated well in return. I had to stay for some extra time and did not face any problem during the stay. The staff was excellent, caring and compassionate. Highly professional and very competent, they were able to get on top of things after an initial slip-up. Impressed
