Excellent ER!!!!! One has to hear it to believe it… these guys have not heard anything about HIPAA. They do not have any shame or hesitation in complaining about other patients or shaming them in front of complete strangers. This was not a one-off case…. I might have visited this ER maybe twice or thrice, and every time I saw this. Even more shocking is that the employees' bitch about other employees in front of their patients. Ladies, I do not want to hear why Ms. ABC did not invite you to the party, nor do I want to know where Mr. XYZ is going for holidays without inviting you.

We all have opinions and air it, but just ensure that you do not do it in front of patients who might not be interested in listening to it.

I woke up on March 29 with gnawing chest pain. I thought it would subside; so I did not take it seriously. But when it did not subside even after three hours, I decided to visit the ER…frankly did not want to die alone when my family was away. I reach the ER and am taken in. After 20 minutes, am taken back to the room where a doctor was waiting for me. I tell him my problem and also the fact that I was recently started on meds for RA. The doctor says “okay.” He starts an IV and does some tests which reveal that I do not have a heart attack. He also says there are some issues with my kidneys, and I need to check whether I am diabetic.

I tell him I got my sugars checked in March and they are well within range. I asked him about my chest pain because the pain had still not subsided. The moment I asked this, the doctor’s demeanor changed. He said he could not give pain meds just like that. I was like WHAT? That one sentence was enough to make me realize that the doc thought I was a junkie. Once the drip was over, I was discharged without anything for my chest pain. It was humiliating. I went to another hospital where I got treated for my chest pains!!! Awful experience.

I visited the ER a few days back for a non-emergency issue. I was in for a surprise. Despite my problem not being an emergency, the staff treated me well and showed the same amount of care and compassion they show to other patients. Staff was friendly and thorough. Never rushed me. The doctor came and answered my questions and gave prescriptions. I left the ER a thoroughly satisfied lady

The IRU stay was very rewarding. Felt very poorly when I came in, but thanks to the excellent team in IRU, I was back on track in quick time. The staff was very professional and thorough. They ensure that they give personalized care to every single patient at their level. Won’t hesitate in coming back to this hospital for any medical issues
