An utter disgrace that is the only thing I have to say about this hospital especially the er I can’t believe this is an actual hospital where people go to because they treat you like shit the nurses will yell and curse right in front of you for basic things like not filling the sample cup on time and make you cry without apologizing. Don’t bring food on time and if you politely ask them why they give you attitude. Doesn’t deserve to an up and running practice please shut down.

Shamelessly ask you to fill out medical form before considering your pain. I have neural issues, have had them for a while now. My entire right leg spasms out of control. It’s not like a twitch, which the doctor looked at and claimed was but I couldn’t believe it because he’s a medical professional and doesn’t know the difference between a spasm and a twitch. But then I thought he was just trying to get rid of me. After all it was 2 in the morning and there were many other patients. Still not appreciated. Anyway the spasming was getting way out of control.

As I was leaving I realized my knee had turned purplish blue for some reason and I wanted to know why. I barged right back into the office room and guess what.. the doctor was having scotch. I was shocked and immediately closed the door behind me and raced towards my car. Because I figured it was best not to be treated than get treated by a drunk. Disgusted in every way possible, and told my friends and family. They suggested that I write this review.

Also side note: my spasming is now under control (or at least getting there). I was smart enough to consider another hospital far away from Mountainside where they told me there was nothing to be alarmed about but I did need to start medication at the earliest possible. They also cleared up my doubt: I wasn’t wrong about the drunk doctor, he was wrong. There is a huge difference between spasming and twitching so if you feel like you’re spasming please go see a doctor, this is what the doctor told me by the way.

The nurses on the 5th floor are the nicest people I’ve ever met. That too during the night shift you seldom expect to see people happy to be working. But these nurses really know what they’re doing.
The doctors if youre lucky to see them at that hour are also very sweet and compassionate.
One of them left behind his sick daughter to tend on patients in the hospital.
Weird he couldn’t just bring her in.. but whatever. Still cool.

This was my wife’s first pregnancy so we were very careful about all the procedures and showed up on time. Luckily we had an excellent OB who always had our backs and showed us what to do. We didn’t miss out on anything because of her. Cheers!

Someone stabbed a pen in my husband’s arm and the office people took him ot the er at Mountainside and dumped him there. Then they called me said it was my responsibility. Cool no issues I go there and see that he was still waiting on seeing the doctor. He’d been there an hour already and I thought this was outrageous. After waiting for another hour a nurse casually walks up to us and says that there’s no space for him to get admitted and they want to transfer him to anotehr hospital. You’ve got to be effing kidding me!
