Worst care!!! You cannot get worst care than this. The doctors and nurses have absolutely no bedside manners. They are rude to patients and think that patients are dimwits and do not know anything. If you have Medicaid or Medicare, then be warned, they will treat you as if you are a criminal... You will get respect and good care only if you have private insurance. Apart from being rude, these nurses and doctors are totally incompetent. They told me that I have no problem after I went there with a severe stomach ache, and I was not able to keep things down. They just did an x-ray and said everything is fine, refused to do more tests. I ended up visiting another hospital, where a CT scan revealed I was having a severe case of diverticulitis. I was lucky. A lesson well learned. Would never be back

Overall, my five-day hospital stay went off well. Not all honky dory, had a few small incidents, but overall it is a very good visit. The doctors, nurses, as well as their aides, were incredible. Lovely people, they never forget to smile and always greet you and are genuinely concerned about your wellbeing. The interns who saw me were really new and could not answer my questions. However, that was only a small blip. The doctor was very nice and discussed my test results and treatment options in detail. The food was ok, but then you do not go to a hospital just to eat. Not my first choice hospital, but then they do care for you. Very pleased with the exceptional nursing care

Four visits in five days and not these folks fault. I had severe diarrhea, and every time I have something I start either throwing up or have loose bowel movements. Hats off to the nurses and doctor for taking good care of me every single time. It can be frustrating for everybody, but then these fellas know how to keep a lid on their anger. They even took care of me on a Sunday. Finally, the ER doctor asked me to get admitted for a few days as it would help them to get to the root of the problem. My wife was okay, but I was not too keen. The doctor assured me and said if nothing we will discharge you ASAP. Reluctantly, I agreed, and I thank them for persisting with me to get admitted. After a three-day stay, I have got rid off my ailment, and I was discharged. Thank you

My mother got a quickish and thorough service. I am glad that we decided to seek care here and not some other place. The medical team was exceptional. Very friendly, gentle, caring, respectful. They took excellent care of my mother. The doctor made a thorough evaluation and made an appropriate diagnosis, and we were out of the ER. The whole visit might have lasted less than an hour. Satisfied with our visit here
