Downright disgusting!!!!

These twits made me wait in the ER for nearly seven hours and what do they do after that…tell they are swamped and would like me to either stay overnight or come the next day morning. This could have been told earlier also. I ended up seeking care at another place. I did not want to risk wasting my time again.

Guys, if you are understaffed, then appoint people. If you cannot handle the rush, please tell the patients immediately. Do not make the patients wait endlessly. Even their time is precious…

Won’t step in again

The best hospital in this side of the woods. I had to rush to the ER at around 2:00 AM after I heard a snap in my hand and was not able to raise it up. I was driven here. The front desk got everything sorted out quickly. I was taken in immediately and then back to the room. An x-ray and a CT scan did not reveal anything except for a minor break in the shoulder joint. I was put in a cast, and four hours after I entered here, I was on my way out. Very happy

Highly impressive. I was treated by an exceptional team of nurses and doctors. I was in-patient for a medical condition, and the doctors and nurses were on the top of things very quickly. The medical condition was addressed, and the doctor explained to me what happened and how to prevent a recurrence. The medical staff was very reassuring, and so was the ancillary support services. The food was also okay. I will not hesitate seeking care here again

Wonderful staff!!!!Great care!!! Highly impressed.

My wife had given birth to a preemie, and he had to stay in the hospital for nearly three months. The doctors were excellent and took time to explain Junior’s status. The doctors and nurse did not get irked by our constant questions. They answered every single question of ours with a smile, a genuine smile. The OBGYN and neonatologist were exceptional and reassured us about everything. Very happy…

If we plan to have a kid again, we are coming here. Period
