Last week I visited Good Samaritan Hospital located in the Puyallup area for day surgery. The nursing staff (pre-op, surgery, post-op, and recovery) was very courteous. They kept my family and me in the loop. The whole surgery experience was wonderful. Everything was well organized, and the entire process moved like a well-oiled machine. The nurses were very caring and made sure that I did not face any issue during my stay here. I highly recommend this wonderful hospital for any day surgeries.

My wife had to be taken to the ER for an unfortunate event. The staff treated us well, and she was taken in pretty quickly. We saw the doctor within a reasonable time. What was going on well suddenly hit a bump. The ER doctor was very snappy and did not have the time or patience to evaluate my wife properly. He might have spent merely a minute with her. His bedside manners were also appalling. We got a feeling that he was just not interested in seeing patients. We ended up visiting another ER where it became known to us that the ER doctor at Good Sam had completely misdiagnosed my wife. Won't think of going back to that place. I cannot risk mine or my loved one’s life!!!

A few nights back, my husband faced an emergency issue and was rushed to Good Sam ER. There we were comforted by a team of charming, caring, jovial, and accommodating staff of nurses and doctor. Even though the floor was full, they ensured that we were seen on a priority. Guess that’s a perk of getting old and touching late 70s. Thanks to the loving care, my husband recovered very quickly, and was on his feet in quick time

I had to go to Good Sam ER after my chest uneasiness did not subside even after taking medicines and antacids. I was attended to very quickly and taken back in a pretty reasonable time. The doctor ordered a blood test and some tests to rule out cardiac issues. It turns out I have GERD. The doctor wrote a script and then gave a referral to a specialist. The specialist confirmed the diagnosis and started appropriate treatment. Thank you, Good Sam, for employing such wonderful people
