I underwent a hip replacement surgery here 2 years back and I had one of the most horrible experiences of my life both before and after the surgery. I am not talking about anything high class here. It had become so damn difficult to even get the basic care and medications.

They wouldn’t give me my basic pain blocks and let me be in agony for hours and finally when they come with the medication, it would be of no use because the pain would have already reached its peak and nothing much can be done about it then.

And this did not happen only once. It had become a daily routine thing and I had become completely fed up of it.

I dislocated my elbow and I was asked to come to Mission Hospital for physiotherapy. I was happy thinking I would be well taken care of here because that’s what the impression is about the place. But the exact opposite happened and I was billed heavily for it.

They made me feel they were doing me some great favor by allowing me in there and getting me treated for my dislocated elbow. And this was in spite of taking a lot of money from me. They make you a scapegoat by not telling you about the charges upfront and then later rip you off.

They are cheats of the first order and do not let go of a chance wherein they can mint money from you. Please do not go in here to be a scapegoat.

I was referred to this hospital for getting some basic lab work done. I did not have any problem with that. But when I got there, the way the hospital staff treated such patients was seriously not done. I was made to wait for hours on end for a few simple tests and once they were done, they overcharged me for the same. I received a bill approx. $3800 for all these tests and it included a CT scan as well.

Now if I would have gone to a diagnostic center to get these tests done, it wouldn’t have costed even half of what it did now. I think this is how the management makes money. The hospital doesn’t seem good enough and I think people who know about the place, hardly prefer going there. And the ones like me who make an entry by mistake are made to pay through their nose.

I think even if you are referred here, you should definitely get a second opinion and then proceed to come here.

I was fortunate enough to be at the ER of this hospital a few days back because of incessant abdominal pain which had no plans to stop even though I tried a whole lot of home remedies. Finally, I knew I had to go to a hospital and see a doctor to get it sorted.

It went there in the morning and the ER overflowed with people, a few waiting for a very long time. But I appreciate the fact that they were honest to me and made it clear to me that I might have to wait for hours in order to be seen by a doctor.

I waited for 3 hours and then I decided it would be better to leave and as I was about to, the nurses who sat outside convinced me to stay and they brought me water so that I would feel better. One of them was kind enough to take my blood for tests. She was a gentle sweetheart and she apologized time and again for having made me wait.

They tried to arrange for a quick meeting with the doctor and meanwhile gave me a bed to take rest. They saw to it that I was comfortable and while I rested, they kept on coming again and again to check on me.

The wait time was ridiculous but their genuine apologies and concern made me sail through it and I am glad I had their support when I was not feeling good. I definitely recommend this hospital.

I suffer from a heart condition and Mission Hospital is where I am getting myself treated for years. I have been to other places as well and if I compare all those places, I can confidently say that Mission hospital has the best staff who can give you good medical care.

All of them are highly professional and have a sound subject knowledge. They extend their support in all possible ways to take care of you. No matter how much I praise the place and the nurses who work here, it would ever be enough.
