My wife decided to give birth to our superhero at Lutheran, and we had one of the most amazing experiences ever. The doctors and nurses were great. We are glad that we decided to use the services of Lutheran over many other hospitals which are frequented by people for having their babies. Well, I would say they are missing the wonderful care provided by Lutheran. The L&D team ensured that both momma and our munchkin felt comfortable. The team was very knowledgeable and answered all the questions that we, first-time parents, had. Thank you all. You would always be in our prayers

This used to be a great hospital with the exception of the internet facility. I had heard the hospital had improved, and I decided to visit the hospital for a medical emergency. It turns out they have a new computer system, which is the most useless system ever seen. This f****ng system snapped, and we were left stranded for more than four hours. It is simply ridiculous. Needless to say, I left AMA. I guess some things don’t improve and some people don’t learn. Curse of stupidity.

The folks manning the ER are exceptional. I rushed to the ER with my 8 YO son after he started breathing very shallowly and his pupils were going up. I was pleasantly surprised by the alacrity of the ER team. We were checked, and before long, my son was being treated by nearly five to six nurses and a few doctors. They started breathing treatment, and an x-ray was taken, which showed that his windpipe had some obstruction. They put a scope in and brought out a small piece of rubber which my son had inhaled mistakenly. He was later transferred to the ICU, and by the end of the second day, we were on our way home. The staff was kind, knowledgeable, and caring, and highly professional.

Thanks to their quick thinking, the doctors were able to clear the obstruction and gave a new lease of life to my son. Ultimate respect

I had one of the worst experiences of my life at this ER. Not only was I made to wait for an inexplicably long time, but the services that were rendered were also not up to the expected standards. The nurses were very rude to me. The doctor was in a hurry to go home. SO what if the patient does not get appropriate care. I waited for nearly three hours before being seen by a doctor for a minute who prescribed me an OTC version of Tylenol. And the item mentioned in my bill – “charges for acute care services provided.”

I cannot believe that I had passed this hospital during several of my rides to various hospitals. I visited this ER by chance. I got exceptional care. The doctor was a gentleman and had excellent bedside manners. He evaluated me, heard me out, and then made an appropriate diagnosis. Thank you for providing exceptional care.
