I would not come here even if I am going to die. That bad their services are!!! And I would request everyone else to avoid this place at all costs too. Avoid this place like plague.

I have had the worst of services here and I think I have had enough of them. And it was not just a one time experience. I was treated bad and talked to rudely every time I visited that place till I finally decided not to go there anymore.

I usually never write reviews for any places that I visit, be it a restaurant, a salon, a motel or a hospital. But the exceptional care they extended to my mom is beyond comparison.

I was impressed and completely floored by their professionalism, courtesy, kindness and skill set. I have never seen the staff of any hospital work so meticulously to ensure that things go on smoothly for their patients.

They have been trained well to be sensitive to their patient’s needs and they managed to touch my heart with the same. I am more than happy to know what whenever I need someone medically, I can turn to this hospital where the staff is capable and professional.

The entire place is a madhouse and I don’t think any sane person would like to come to this place once they have had a taste of it. They take decent care of their patients, though not exceptionally well. But when it comes to conducting tests and scheduling procedures, they are the laziest people in earth.

And their unclean surroundings are what I hate the most!! It is a hospital and they are supposed to maintain it clean and keep it sanitized but it is filthy with waste material lying here and there.
I was once admitted here for 3 days and no one even came to clean my room or the bathroom in those 3 days.

I was here for a routine blood test and when the technician had to draw my blood sample, he did not even bother to wear any gloves. NOW THAT WAS SO CARELESS!!! I have never seen anyone do that ever in my lifetime.

Now this is what I call an unprofessional way of doing things!!! Later on when she had to wipe my hand off, she took the cotton, soaked it and kept it on the counter top. And that was gross!!! I had to shout at her to not use that to clean my hands!!

Ohh Godd!!! I do not understand how people end up to be so brainless that too the ones working in the medical field.

Kishwaukee is the worst place for healthcare and I wonder how this place is still kept open. There are too many problems, too much of confusion and way too many problems that require a very professional management to be taken care of.

The service is really poor and the building is so damn confusing that it is hard to navigate through it. And once when I went in with a family member, the receptionist shouted at my aunt who was the patient and was extremely rude to her.

I could see that she was in tears and I hated them for that!! I don’t know if I will come back here but I definitely don’t want to.
