I just cannot understand this hospital. The wait times are very reasonable, and the staff is great and ready to help beyond their call of duty to ensure the patient is comfortable. What drags them down and the sincere efforts of the team is the cleanliness or the lack of it. It is not that the place is filled with garbage; it is just that tiny things which make it disgusting. For example, when I entered the emergency room, I saw used coffee cups near the sink; used gloves, not in the bins, and specks of dried blood on the floor and the wheels of the bed. These might seem minor things, but when taken as a whole, it presents a very disgusting picture. I have been moved by the professionalism of nurses, doctors, insurance team etc.. They have been great. If only they can address the cleanliness issue, then this hospital would be a jewel in the crown of NY. It might be that I went to the ER only, but then sanitation is important everywhere, especially in a hospital.

Long Island Jewish Medical Center is a medical center that oozes professionalism. Every single member of the hospital, be it the doctors, nurses, specialists, housekeeping staff, the cafeteria, volunteers, etc. are very professional. They do take care of their patients. Some days, checking in can be a smooth affair, and things happen quickly, but there are days when it is jam-packed, and it is during these days, the real mettle of the people working there is seen. Even when the ER is full, things move on very smoothly, nurses smile and talk with you, the doctors listen to you and you feel you have received quality medical attention. I have always sought care at this place and will continue to do so.

This medical center is great. The staff which runs this hospital is great, and one can always be assured that once taken in, the quality of care would be fabulous. I had taken my wife to NUMC but unfortunately had to leave AMA as we were not satisfied with the way those people treated her. I brought her here, and I could immediately see the difference between the two hospitals. It was like day and night. The doctors and nurses were nice, and they did not rush with things. They took their time to understand the problem and then address it. The team here took excellent care of my wife. Thanks to the excellent quality of care, Anna is on the road to recovery. I would return if needed

Long Island Jewish Medical Center is excellent. I went into the ER with terrible chest pain. I was triaged and within a matter of minutes was transferred to a room. The doctor came, checked me, and ordered labs. The lab techs were wonderful and did the tests in a jiffy. Once the results were out, they shifted me to the Coronary ICU. The doctor set up a TVP wire that helped stabilize my heart. Twenty-four hours later, had another round of tests and was advised to get a pacemaker. I went ahead and got one. Surgery over, was advised to stay another 24 hours for observation. The third day, I got all clear from the cardiac specialists, and I was on my way. During the whole time, I was treated with great love and care. The quality of care was top notch. I will highly recommend this wonderful hospital to anyone who needs expert and professional medical care.
