This incident happened almost 2 years back and I still cannot forget that day. I came to this hospital along with someone who suffered from autism. So, when he does not do his regular activities, it tends to irritate him like anything. He acts out a little and cries and whines a lot. And no matter what we do to pacify him, nothing works.

When I brought him here, a few nurses understood his situation and empathized with him but most of them got pissed off with him and were far from being helpful about the whole thing. They were being rude to him and that made things worse.

After a long wait, I knew that nothing was going to happen and decided to take him back home. I am very disappointed with them and would never go back in there. So, I definitely would not recommend.

A family member of mine once insisted that she wanted to come to this hospital. I think it was sometime last year. Although she was affiliated with New York Presbyterian Hospital in Manhattan, she did not want to go back there after she had a few bad experiences there.

Her hospital stay did not go well and it seems she was misdiagnosed there as well. so, she ditched that place and chose to come to the Queens branch. And even I think it she took a good decision.

When I asked her about her experience at queens, she said everything was as expected and she was treated much much better here. She said everyone was taking good care of her and she felt she would recover soon in this place.

I am happy she finally received what she expected.

I went here because my daughter was having an allergic reaction towards something. They offered to give her Benadryl and although I did not feel it was the right thing to do, I still said ok because my daughter was suffering because of the allergy and crying constantly.

I thought they had administered her the medication and put her to rest. So, I sat outside while she rested. But an hour later, she started exhibiting extreme reactions and when I checked on her, I could see that her condition had worsened.

When I asked the nurse about it, she conveniently said she forgot about it and that she was sorry. I don’t know how people in the medical field can be so negligent of their duties. I had trusted them with my daughter and this is what they did. I don’t know how they forgot to do something like this.

I am very disappointed with them. I am not coming here again.

I am and forever will be grateful to the doctor and his team who performed my surgery. They were the best and things turned out to be much better than I thought.

My recovery too has been really fast and all credits goes to the team of efficient nurses who stood by me through thick and thin, made me feel better, put up with my tantrums and motivated me every single moment.

All of them have been truly responsible, kind and compassionate towards me during my entire stay at the hospital. I got discharged last week and now, I hardly need any painkillers for relief.

Truly grateful!

This review is on the ruddy ER of this hospital.

A friend of mine once mentioned that this hospital functions like a very well oiled machine with everyone going about their duties in an orderly manner.

Well-oiled machine, my foot!! They are a complete chaos and they make a mess of your life if you choose to go there. I don’t think I would prefer to come to this hospital even if it was my last resort to live.

I got here in the afternoon and I was assured that I would be seen in at the most half an hour and I was quite happy to hear that although my pain killed me every single moment. I kept on waiting and rage filled in me. I got a bed after half an hour and I thought I would be seen soon but things did not turn out to be as I had expected.

Another 3 hours went by and I was told that only a nurse would see me since no doctor was available. Finally, she arrived, took my triage, prescribed some medication which never turned out to be useful and pushed me out of the hospital.

Don’t go in here if you value your time and your life.

Very recently, I was hospitalized here and I was taken care of phenomenally well during the entire week. All of them were kind enough and that went a long way for me because I was sick. Everybody did their best to make me feel good and made things easier for me to handle.

Every time I called for help, someone was always there and that’s exactly what I liked the most about this place. I love this hospital and if I have to be back, I will do so with all my heart for I know nothing can go wrong with me here.

Thank you people!! Thank you so much for the care and concern!!
