My dad has been extremely sick for the past one month and doctors have tried many a things to make him better but nothing has been completely effective in curing him of his present condition. One night, all of a sudden he got worse than usual and we rushed him to the ER of this hospital and as we got there the nurse had the audacity to tell me that I shouldn’t have brought him to the ER for such trivial issues. So much of attitude!

For 5 hours, he waited for someone to at least notice him and make him feel better but nobody even cared to do that. So, finally he walked up to me and said that he wants to return home. The day my dad was ill treated there, I hate that place ever since!

I have been to this community hospital quite a few times; mostly to the ER and once to have my baby delivered. I have had good experiences whenever I visited here. The ER staff are one of the best I have ever met- totally cool, warm and friendly; all at the same time.

Even during my labor and delivery, the nurses were amazing and took wonderful care of me and my baby boy. There were times when I felt low but all of them made combined efforts to cheer me up and gave me some good tips to take care of the baby without tiring myself too much.

I had a wonderful post delivery time there and I would like to thank all of them for making it a memorable experience for me.

I would never recommend anyone to go to this malicious place. They don’t know their work at all. I came in here because I was on my period and I was bleeding heavier than usual and this time it had been over a week. I could not think of any reason good enough. So, when I started to feel weak and could no longer handle it, I felt the best thing to be done was to go to a hospital and see a doctor.

So, with great difficulty, I managed to come here only to be disappointed. The ER staff were not helpful at all and didn’t even bother to do any tests. They just made me wait for hours together and finally when I was seen, they came up with a lame reason that it could be due to hormonal imbalance and put me on some pills. And then, again I was royally ignored!

After waiting for 2 more hours, I grabbed something to eat from their cafeteria which was horrible just like them and then returned home. That place is no good I tell you….

I was brought into the ER of MLK hospital when I started feeling all weird and dizzy in the middle of a meeting. I must say the new facility is too good, with all the top notch medical facilities and the building infrastructure is beyond comparison. Amazingly well-kept the whole place is!

It was afternoon and the ER was super busy and although I had to wait for 15-20 minutes before being seen, I must say the ER staff, all of them are putting in a lot of efforts. I must honestly acknowledge that handling so many patients at a time is not a child’s play.

I personally feel, a little bit more of efforts and the hospital will be world class! The doctors are so down to earth and the nurses who work there can be otherwise called as “angels on earth”. A little bit of tinkering here and there and the hospital will definitely make it to one of the best hospitals in the world.

I decided to write this review because I could not stop myself from appreciating the very good staff over there. They are class apart and one of their kind.

I simply loved the attitude of every single soul who works there. The security is a very nice guy but when it comes to the safety of the patients inside the hospital, he is firm as well. everyone else too were friendly with a smile on their faces at all times.

I was sick but the people who work here made me feel a lot better; the medicines played only a secondary role.

I would highly recommend this hospital because of the nicety of the staff working here.
