My son underwent surgery at this place a few months ago and spent a fortnight here. He was treated like royalty. They made him feel like a part of the family. We did not face any problem and have got zero complaints against them. In fact, my son was very sad when he was being discharged because he had made some good friends here.

Based on our experience, this hospital is worth visiting in case of any medical needs.

The management of Lower Bucks Hospital should appoint people with common sense in the ER. My father and grandpa met with an accident, and they were brought to this hospital. While my grandpa escaped unhurt, my dad did end up with some severe injuries and had a lot of bleeding. What do these idiots do…they clean the wounds, give a pain reliever, and send them home…with my grandpa pushing my dad’s wheelchair.

These idiots did not even do any emergency scan or tests, nothing. It turns out, my dad had a blood clot in his brain and several impact injuries. I hate this hospital and would suggest everybody stay away from this hospital.

The cardiology team at Lower Bucks Hospital ROCKS!!! The specialist and the nurses treated me as a human being who needed empathy as well as care. The doctor explained what my ailment was and the steps that could and should be taken to address this issue. The nurse was also great and cracked a few jokes and lightened up my somber mood. Three cheers to these fantastic people

I underwent a sleep study at this hospital, and it was a great experience. The nurses were topnotch and ensured that I understood what the test was and how was it going to help determine my ailment. They did not have any issues with my wife or me asking questions, and each question was answered with a smile. The doctor was also a wonderful person and had great excellent bedside manners.

Long story short, a wonderful hospital experience. I will not hesitate in returning if the need arises
