I would agree with many that the location of the hospital is lousy in terms of traffic, but then this hospital is serviced by some of the most amazing and incredibly talented doctors that the USA has to offer. The hospital caters to the masses and has various rooms if the need arises. I was there for a surgery which was conducted by an excellent and professional surgeon. The nurses are also great and very friendly. Some of them are snotty, but the majority are very friendly. The hospital food is out of this world (according to my son). Their cafeteria is awesome and has various options that cater to every single palate. The parking is paid parking, but patients get a discounted rate if they show proof that they were a patient here.

Mass General is a large hospital complex, but that does not make any difference to its healthcare standards. They were great, are great, will remain great. Our family is a regular here. My wife was recently hospitalized for a postop infection after surgery to repair her tibia. My brother was in for a bone marrow transplant to address his leukemia. I have had treatments from an ortho specialist as well as a cardiologist. Every single visit has gone well. For our family, this is our first port-of-call when it comes to any type of minor or serious medical condition

If you plan to seek expert care on any medical issue, then head to Mass General Hospital. They have specialists for every single medical condtion.

Recently I underwent a five-hour long complex surgery and stayed in the hospital, Ellison building to be precise, for nearly a week. My nurses took great care of me. They were kind, gentle, knowledgeable, and very professional. The housekeeping staff ensured that the room was clean and I had a functional and clean bathroom. The food services were also good. The doctors and surgeon who treated me were excellent and knew what they were doing. The Resident team was also great. Thank you, everyone, for taking good care of me and helping me have a speedy recovery.

I had to visit the ER for an ever-increasing abdominal pain. I was taken in quickly and told that the doctor would see me within 30 minutes. That 30 minutes stretched into four hours, and nobody even came out to state what was causing the delay. Finally, I could not take it anymore, and I walked out. Be honest; you won’t piss people off!!!
