This is one ER that I would not mind to go. A great place for getting excellent care. The main reason for this, I feel is that the ER does not have your typical people who would want to visit the ER rather than visit their primary doctor. Wait time is reasonable. The physicians and nurses are amazing. They are attentive to your needs. Have always got the best care here

STAY AWAY!!!! It is for your own good.

My primary referred me to the urologist office for a consultation and a procedure. The urologist was good and was a pleasure to work with. However, the staff was pathetic. They had no clue about things happening there and were irritable, cranky, and very confused. The receptionist has surely not heard of HIPAA and something called patient privacy. She was stating out loud the exact reason for the patient’s visit. There were four of us in the office, and all of us had to run for cover when she was opened her mouth. The bonus of the visit was the billing. I had paid all the dues using my debit card and had got an acknowledgment for the same. A month later, I get a bill and a letter from the urologist’s office stating that there has been a billing mistake and I would have to pay an additional amount. I flatly refused to pay. Why should I pay for an error that has been done from your side? They refused to budge and are trying their level best to make me pay the balance money. Stay away from Midstate.

I have no idea as to how are these people still running. The entire staff seems to highly incompetent, very rude, uneducated, and totally unorganized. Horrible management. These people transferred my care to another nurse because it was time for my nurse to leave. Sounds okay, but she did not say anything to the new nurse, so she was completely lost when it came to my care. They also lost my blood sample, and I had to give a second sample. Four hours later, a nurse walks in, is shocked at seeing me, and then two minutes later comes and says I am good to go. Never saw a doctor and have not known the results of the blood sample. The discharge paper also did not mention anything.

I like visiting this hospital. The facility is clean, and the interiors are very good. There is hardly any wait time in the ER. Even though I frequent Yale, I like the coming to this ER for all my medical needs

Nothing is perfect. Scope for improvement is always there in every field, and every institution and every human being, but have to say that Midstate is the best-maintained hospital in the entire state. Things are very well organized at this place. The staff, in general, is very accommodating and helpful
