New York Presbyterian Weill Cornell Medical Center sure does have terrible billing practices. I visited the hospital ER following a minor medical scare. After the deductibles, insurance payments, I ended with a bill of $600 with no explanation whatsoever. The billing department had no clue why they issued me the bill of $600. They tried to pass the buck but were unsuccessful. I had to make repeated calls and ask them why I have to pay that amount. It has been nearly three weeks after discharge, but they still have no clue of the bill. All they insist is that I should pay the bill. I am not a millionaire to just pay whatever these idiots bill me for. Get me an itemized bill, and we can talk about payment. Completely shady practices. Stay away.

Last Friday, my father was in the hospital for open heart surgery. Three major valves had to be replaced. From the time we entered the hospital till discharge, we were treated with kindness and care by every single staff member. They helped in easing the tension and explained in detail what the procedure entailed and the success rate of the operation. Their professionalism shone through during the ENTIRE admission - pre-op, surgery, ICU shifting. I highly recommend visiting this hospital if you want to receive exceptional care. I appreciate and am grateful to the hospital staff for the lovely care that they are providing to my father to ensure he is back on his feet pretty quickly

I would not even think of going anywhere else. The hospital does have its issues, and it is not something new. If you run a hospital on this scale, then there are bound to be issues, and these issues are not unique to New York Presbyterian Weill Cornell Medical Center. It is a common factor in every hospital. I have received good care here, and so has my family members. Would not hesitate to return.
