We were on a family vacy in Cummings, Georgia when my oldest kid developed breathing difficulties. We were told to go to Northside Hospital – Forsyth. We went to the hospital emergency department at 1:30 AM and must tell that we were pleasantly surprised. We were received, my daughter was triaged, tested and examined and released with appropriate medicines within two hours. The technicians, nurses and the on-call doctor were very helpful and thanks to them, we were able to continue with our vacation. This is a great hospital and people staffing it makes it even better.

This hospital has probably the longest waiting time when compared to other hospitals, but the wait is worth it. Once it is your turn, you get to be treated by some of the finest, coolest and probably the best doctors and the nurses in the country. The management could help the hospital to become the finest if they take efforts to reduce the waiting time at least by half.

My wife delivered our first baby a few months back here at Northside Forsyth – Women’s Center. The entire delivery process went off smoothly. The midwife was great, and the doctor was topnotch. The doctor knew how to calm a hysterical pregnant woman and was able to help my wife in giving it all her might, something which she needed to avoid getting into C-section. After successful delivery, the doctor’s bedside manner was out of this world, and we truly appreciate the efforts of the team to ensure that my wife had an incident-free and smooth delivery.

The hospital was great, and the delivery room was luxurious, and very well equipped. Every single staff member, right from technician to the nurses, and the doctor were excellent and went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. This was our first child, so we had numerous questions, some silly (mostly my questions) and each question was answered with a smile.

Thank you all!

I want to warn everyone not to park your vehicle in the hospital’s parking deck. I had gone to the ER after parking my car here, and when I returned back, I saw my car was broken into. I suffered damages worth $5000 not including my busted car window. The parking deck does not have any security and the cameras installed in the area were of very poor quality, according to the police. What hurt me the most was that the hospital did not even say a word. They said they would call back, but I never heard from them. It seems all they are worried about is our money and not our safety. Avoid parking here, rather avoid going to this hospital.

The ER staff at Northside Hospital – Forsyth is great. They attended to my laceration very professionally and promptly. What made me hate the hospital was the billing department. The ER staff cleaned the wounds and placed sutures over the wound. I was asked to return for suture removal or in case of infection. The hospital informed me that charges for suture removal were included in the charges that I would have to pay for my visit. Five days later, I notice the wounds were weeping, and the area had become red. I return to the hospital so that the wounds can be drained after suture removal. The doctor comes in, inspects the wound and says there is no infection and I can proceed with suture removal and ask me to continue with the same antibiotics given during my previous visit. All this is done within five minutes. The staff goes ahead and draws blood for some tests, and I am informed that I can go home.

So, just to recollect, doc was in for less than five minutes, stitches removed (charges supposedly deducted from the previous visit), and gave blood for some blood work. A month later, I get a bill of nearly $5000.00!!!! I nearly got a heart attack. Unbelievable!!! For stitches and five-minute doctor visit????!!!??!?!? I mean these guys were nuts. I called them up and asked for an itemized bill and guess what the final amount was----- $500….they sheepishly told there was a billing error. Just imagine if I had paid up the entire money…these guys would have a cool profit of $4500.

My mother was released after a ten-day stay following abdominal surgery. I must say that she received the best care possible. The entire staff was knowledgeable, friendly and always there to help whenever needed. Highly recommend this wonderful hospital to every single person living in the nearby areas.
