Don’t think I will return to Nyack. Not because I had an issue with the doctors or NPs. But because the place is not exactly classy. Came here directly from work, keeping an appointment with my new OB. As soon as I got in, I saw two drunk men walking out of the hospital. (not sure if they were drunk but they were definitely swaying hard). Then of course the cleanliness factor comes in. I expected Nyack to be on top of their cleanliness game but they lacked severely. In fact one of the trash cans was pouring trash and it smelled horribly on that side. Guess I was just expecting more from this place having heard such nice things about it online. There’s my lesson, don’t trust online reviews lol. Ironic I said that as I typed out this review.

Do not believe one word the staff people say especially if they’re being purposefully vague about something. I ended up paying 5x what I normally pay at hospitals at Nyack because I asked them about my insurance coverage at the reception and they said it would be covered. Needed to get urgent surgery for my knee because my knee cap was badly smashed in so you can understand why I didn’t have time to discuss my insurance options at the front desk.

But before going in for surgery I was very aprticular about pointing out that my medical coverage is not too fancy so I didn’t know if this surgery would be covered. The receptionsist claimed she would look in to it and the next thing I knew I was being prepped for surgery. Now I brought it up twice with the surgeons and the staff assisting the surgery and they said that the front desk gave them a green signal. So I decided to focus on the problem at hand and went ahead with the surgery.

When I woke up, I was happy that all went well – the surgery went really good and I was showing really good progress. All was going fine until I saw that they charged me $3000 for the surgery because my insurance wouldn’t cover it. Agitated as I was I decided there was no way I was going to pay because this was their fault. Wanted to discuss this with my insurance company as well as the billing department at Nyack hospital but they had already spun it around on me, claiming I was trying for insurance fraud of sorts.

I almost cried when I heard all the drama this was causing so I decided to just get it over with and paid the damn money. But rest assured I am not letting this go that easy. They stole my money and now I am going to be their worst nightmare. Have already spread the news on 5 different platforms and hopefully word will be out soon about how horrid of a hospital this truly is. If you value your life and money, keep looking.

All the members of the labour and delivery ward deserve a raise, effective immediately. To make an English couple feel extremely welcome and comfortable in a basically alien state to us was close to impossible but Nyack somehow managed to blow our socks off. We welcomed our new born, Elias into this world with the biggest smile.

If you’re lucky, you’ll make good friends of the staff members at Nyack. I’ve been told that I’m a friendly person but I’ve never been able to make small talk with a doctor before.
But that’s just the beauty of Nyack, they are so friendly that even patients feel special here. I was only in for a small medical check-up referred by my PD but honestly I think I will come here regularly here on out.
Had a full-fledged discussion with a surgeon about the cleanliness maintained at this hospital. Even talked to the chief of medicine for 10 minutes and he was the sweetest man I’d ever met. Sort of reminded me of my father.

Nyack hospital is a hostile environment. If you are about to have surgery or have to get admitted I would recommend staying away from this kind of a hospital. There’s a lot of negativity which you can feel as soon as you get inside the hospital. They are not the least bit punctual so you’ll have to wait hours. This is just not the kind of environment which is suitable for people going into surgery. I can vouch for that…

I freak out at hospital settings but Nyack changed my opinion about hospitals forever. For the first time in my life I was taken to the emergency room and it was terrifying. The doctors specified that I needed to have emergency surgery and the head surgeon explained the procedure I was to undergo.
Even though terrified, I put on a strong face and the surgeon totally saw right through me.

He was making jokes to cut the tension and basically trying to cheer me up, which I definitely appreciated. Even though I cried softly here and there (and he definitely caught me a couple of times) it wasn’t awkward at all. I was allowed to express myself the way I wanted- the surgeons and nurses were very accommodating and compassionate and of course, the surgery went fine and I am so appreciative of the surgery ward at Nyack.

The emergency rooms personel are soooo sweet I never expected that kind of treatment. My mother has been getting fevers every alternate day now so I took her to Nyack and the doctors were so patient with her. She’s a little difficult to comprehend but they didn’t mention that once. She’s also very difficuly to manage (aka with nurses) but they were also very sweet.
