This place sucks!!! It almost killed me 2 years back….

I was in a critical condition and the doctors here wanted to dump me back home because they did not have the confidence that I would survive under their care. That bad they are!
Had they put in a little bit more of efforts, I would have been healed because I have right now but they were so scared that they did not even want to make an attempt.

I was taken back home but my condition worsened. My sister kinda knew how these people were, so she did not bother to take me back here.

Eventually, we found a better a hospital where I was treated well and taken care of properly. I healed and I am all fit and fine now. But, at the same time, I know I will never step back in there.

The doctors of Metrosouth are good but the nurses are the best. All of them have a kind of positive aura around them and as a patient I have received great vibes from them which helped me immensely in my recovery process.

The nurses are amazing and I loved being around them although I had undergone a painful procedure and the recovery was equally painful too. But with them around, I found it easier to handle.

A big thank you to all of you from the bottom of my heart!

I would call this facility a good hospital overall; they seem to have good doctors, well trained nurses, friendly sub staff, sincere security guards and definitely a great cafeteria.

I found people who work here to be reasonably good, the place to be clean and well-maintained and overall the place has a good atmosphere for patients. What more can one ask for!

At times, I wonder how this place is still open and what makes people choose this ruddy hospital instead of the good ones around!!! How the hell can this place with absolutely no good facilities or staff even survive the cut throat competition of medical business.
Thank God, I have never been so unfortunate to get admitted here. But once when a relative of mine was admitted, I visited him. I was a mere visitor and they took more than an hour to let me see him.

They got me seated in the lobby and completely and conveniently forgot about me (which I got to know later). And while I waited there, I had seen enough of drama going on in that hospital, with people passing out here and there and the nurses being rude to the patients and a few staff even talking about their patients behind their backs.

I could see that the place could be a total nightmare for the ones admitted there. I simply couldn’t bear any of it.

I never got admitted or treated here but I always bring both my kids to this place whenever they kind of medical issues. So, honestly speaking I do not know about all the departments but the ones I have been to are definitely not up to the mark.

They were reasonably alright till a few months back but my previous 4 visits have definitely ruined my opinion about the hospital. Once I waited with my second one for a very long time for her to be seen by a doctor but had to bring her back home because four hours had passed and still no signs of getting checked by a doctor.

Then another time, the doctor who attended to my first born was intimidating and my daughter did not look even a little comfortable in his presence.

So, for now, I have lost all my confidence which I once had in this place and I don’t think I would want to take them to a place where they are unwelcome. So, no going back in there again.
