I have no idea how people like Dr. Emil Achmond could even get a license to practice medicine. He was okay till he started bumbling my care and I ended up telling him more about the medicine that he was going to give me and that I had the knowledge of what my ailment was and how it should be treated. He just flipped over when he heard these things. The doctor might have had a bad day at the office when he was evaluating me. There is nothing new about it…everyone has a bad day, but that does not mean that you can take out your anger on patients. Dr. Achmond was unprofessional and was finding way and means to provoke me and throw me out. He is a disaster in the hospital and God help those who end up getting treated by him.

I complained about his behavior to the hospital administration, but they ended up blaming me for provoking him. How is correcting an ill-informed doctor an act of provoking?

I got myself discharged and sought care at another hospital. Won’t step in or even recommend this dump to anyone seeking care in the Lower Manhattan area...

The nurses, nursing assistants, and doctors at this hospital are great and treated my wife well. The only issue with this hospital was that the room which was given to my wife was so small that just having two people in the room made it feel very suffocating. It was also damn hot, and I was dripping with sweat in just 10 minutes. I thought hospitals should have a cooler climate to inhibit the growth of germs. However, the situation at this hospital was a complete contrast.

I somehow managed to tide over the night and was the happiest person when my wife was discharged. Would never come here again.

I do not have the slightest idea why people hate this hospital. Yes, it has its pro and cons, and with the newer and much-improved model, I do not think there would be any problem. My parents were born in this hospital, and so was I. I live in the neighborhood and have visited the hospital for everything – ER, inpatient, and outpatient. Every single time I have been treated well. The ER wait time has never exceeded more than 30 minutes, which is a big boon because there are hospitals where one can end up waiting for hours and hours before being seen.

THEY ARE AWESOME

I’ve had an excellent experience at this outstanding hospital. I had my baby here. I have had a wonderful birthing experience. The Labor and Delivery unit ensured that both my child and I, along with my husband, were comfortable. They took great care of me. We are completely satisfied with the services that were provided to us. The hospital has downsized, but the quality of care has not changed. If anything, it has improved. Thank you for taking good care of my baby and me

Nothing bad about this place. Had to visit the ER twice or thrice, and every single time, I was treated with dignity and respect. The nurses and doctors were excellent and had the patience to answer whatever questions we threw at them. I will not think twice before visiting this place to seek medical care. God Bless All
