First-rate nurses who know how to get things done. I was an in-patient for a few days, and I had a tricky situation which these folks handled with aplomb. The hospital is lovely and very clean. The ER is generally quiet, but even when there is a rush, the staff handles the rush with utmost ease. The doctors are also nice folks. Very happy

Had a particular situation a few days ago at this place. I had gone to the ER with a splitting headache that had resulted in me throwing up twice or thrice. I was triaged and asked to wait. Surprisingly, people who came in after me were sent ahead of me. At least five people went before me, and when I inquired, the triage nurse had no answer. I told them I am leaving and left without being seen.

I used to visit the place frequently, but after this episode, not sure if I want to go back

The ER doctor and nurse were very rude. My son was coughing badly, and these people were least bothered. The doctor did not even order a test to check for any cause. He asked me to ensure that he spit out whatever he was coughing up….as if I did not know that.

I had to rush him to another hospital where he was diagnosed with aspiration pneumonia, and appropriate treatment was started. Won’t be back and would not recommend this hospital to anybody…..

I am pleased with the exceptional care that I received here. It is heartwarming when you know the doctors and nurses by their first name, and they are your neighbors. This hospital is a boon to the community, and I sincerely hope that it would continue providing exceptional care to the community as a whole for years to come.

I was visiting my in-laws when I had a slip and severely injured my shoulder. They rushed me to this hospital. I was skeptical about the care which I would get here. All my doubts were brushed aside by the exceptional care that I got. The doctors, nurses, and techs worked in sync with each other and in a clockwork fashion. I was out of the hospital ER in five hours with a diagnosis of bone contusion and some pain meds.

High-fives and a big THANK YOU to all the wonderful people involved in my care. You guys ROCK!!!!
