This is one of the worst hospitals I have come across in my life. Please save yourself and avoid coming here. I learned it the hard way. I waited in the ER for nearly five hours due to severe flu. In spite of repeatedly telling them my situation, they just said they were coming, but did not come. I tried reasoning with them but to no avail. Finally, having had enough of this bullshit, I went ahead and gave these f*&^%$g idiots a piece of my mind. After getting blasted, finally a nurse comes and while taking a swab mutters, “Now, be prepared for hell.” What nice words to say to the patient.

I am diagnosed with influenza A and know that Tamiflu would work fine. When I suggested the doctor to give Tamiflu, he flew into a rage and said patients are not supposed to tell which medicines they want. Fair enough, but this is the medicine that is even recommended by the federal authorities. They try to talk me out of wanting Tamiflu. One of them even said, “Why to go after such a costly medicine?”

Sensing that I would not budge from my demand, the doctor grudgingly wrote a script for Tamiflu.

I was not alone. I saw the same kind of attitude against other patients also. If these people do not want to take care of the patients, then they should shut it down.

I have not visited Marian Regional Medical Center for nearly five years now, and I am sure things would be a lot different now. When I visited this hospital in 2014, the hospital was excellent. The nurses were lovely and very professional. They used to have a nice cafeteria. I loved the food that was served there. The volunteers were also wonderful. I know that people hesitate to come to hospitals, but I always believed that if you want to trust somebody with your health, then this would be the hospital.

Wondering how relevant it is in these times – well, it is always good to have a different perspective and see where you stand now compared to previous years.

Thank you, Marian, for taking very good care of my family members and me over the years.

I was admitted to Marian for a week with high fever and severe gastroenteritis. My stay was good. Not only the staff took good care of me, but my doctor and nurse updated me on every single thing. My blood tests, my status, etc. They were caring, sincere and very pleasant. Even my husband said the staff rocks. Coming to the facility, it was neat, well maintained and up-to-date. To top it all, the food that was served was excellent. Even the cafeteria food was also great…

By the time I was discharged, I had built a close rapport with my nurses and doctors, and I felt as if I was leaving some close family members. We agreed to keep in touch (obviously not in the hospital setting). From their talks, I felt that the team really cared for my health. Trust me, you can come to this facility for getting treated without any worries. You are in very safe hands.

I cannot remember being treated this way in any of the hospitals that we have visited so far. They are very professional, caring and ready to go beyond the call of the duty. My boyfriend was feeling chest pain and had a feeble pulse. Initially, the doctors thought that he had a heart attack, but an alert doctor thought otherwise and ordered a battery of tests which revealed that he had blocked heart vessels and needed placement of a pacemaker. Cannot really blame the doctors because my boyfriend was not showing any outward signs of discomfort. The entire team was knowledgeable, compassionate and caring. I liked the way they explained the things; it was in simple English and avoided any medical jargon that would have confused us.

I sincerely request everybody to please avoid this hospital if you can. They are understaffed, and I am not sure if you could even get treated here. I was put on hold for an hour when I called to book an appointment. The reason, the concerned specialist was not present for the days I wanted to have an appointment. Later on, I came to know that the specialist had left the hospital a long time back. Once when I managed to get an appointment (for a different issue), I had to wait for nearly two hours because of the huge rush. The reason for the rush, the original specialist, was not in town, and they had to get a replacement.

Their motto is also a big joke.

I was in and out of the ER in a jiffy. I had gone to Marian ER to take out a foreign body that was embedded in my right hand. I have to say it was the quickest trip ever to the ER, all thanks to the friendly, efficient and prompt staff. These guys even cracked jokes just to calm down my nerves. Now that is something rarely seen nowadays.

I had a revision leg surgery due to certain unforeseen complications. The entire medical staff, right from the pre-op to nurses, aides, techs and even doctors, surgeons and also the chaplain were great. They went the extra mile to not only monitor me, but also comfort me, and trying to understand how the complication came about in the first place. Not only were they very professional, but they were also attentive to my needs, took very good care of me. Though I would not like it, if there is a need for another surgery, then this is the hospital that I would come back to.

I was booked for an appointment to have x-rays and ultrasound of my abdomen at this hospital. Since the appointment was at 10:30 am, I reached the hospital some 20 minutes earlier. The intake staff was efficient and did all the required procedures very professionally (did not involve with my unnecessary talks). I was prepped and ready for imaging right on the dot. The techs were also very caring and professional. The entire imaging procedure went quite smoothly, and it was completed within an hour. They took good care of me.

The only issue with the hospital: Lack of signage. I nearly lost my way while walking out of the hospital. If that is corrected, then this would be a great hospital.
