If you are in New York, I would recommend ANY other hospital but this one. They take zero responsibility of the patient and even if they screw up a medical procedure, they will somehow find a way to blame the patient. My girlfriend had to get surgery done on her left foot and the anesthesiologist screwed up- somehow she ended up getting an allergic reaction to it later on, after the surgery even though the surgery went through just fine. But when she asked them about the reaction, they said it wasn’t their fault and said she was free to leave the hospital.

Of course, she went and showed it to another hospital, where they gave clear indications that it looked like the anesthesiologist had screwed up. When she went back and was a little riled up about it, they demanded that she lower her voice or get out of there. See, now my girlfriend is not a legal citizen of this country, so there’s not much she wanted to do to have her demands heard. But I am, so I am not going to let this go. They better help her and for free, as compensation for the screw up they are 100% responsible for. To think that there are hospitals like this even today is frightening, and this hospital is everything that is wrong with American healthcare. Very, very upset.

The dentist department at NYC Woodhull is unlike anything I’d ever seen before. They have such an extreme level of professionalism, the dentist was very nice and caring. I started crying after the first injection because I don’t have a very high threshold for pain. But he calmed me down and I didn’t even realize the pressure until I heard the cracking of the wisdom tooth as he removed it effortlessly. The dentists here are beyond amazing.

The care I received at Woodhull was something I was not expecting- it was really good. I hit my head pretty hard against a wooden surface and felt faint. Had to be rushed to the ER where I was nervous about the triage system and didn’t know how long I had to wait like that. Luckily, they called my name in 15 minutes and I sat down on a bed before a physician came and examined the bump on my head.

He then sent me for a CT scan to get a closer look and that took another half an hour. Either way, it was a lot faster than I’d anticipated and I was out of there in 3 hours. People who complain about the service in the ER, always remember it’s not just you- the triage system is in place to ensure that everyone has an equal chance of getting in, depending on the severity of your condition.

The whole system is rather disorganized, they will ask you to wait in line but can’t give you an ETA. Even if you wait for 3-4 hours, they say they can’t do anything to speed up the process. Never seen a more confused receptionist in my whole life. The nurse had to help her with everything- so incompetent. I was supposed to go in 2 hours before they actually called my name, but thanks to the stupid receptionist, I had to miss a day of work. Kind request to the talent acquisition group at Woodhull, please hire on competent staff at a hospital. It’s very crucial for patients like me.

I don’t get why such incompetent and money-centric hospitals even exist. The whole point of having a hospital is to put the focus on treating patients in the best way possible and make life easier for them. Instead of that, the doctors here treat you depending on how fancy your medical insurance is and the nurses are so useless, they basically just gossip with each other or play on their phones. Some of them will even have their feet on the table and chill around like they’re at the cinema. Outrageous hospital.

What’s even worse is that when my mom was admitted here as an outpatient, they asked her to remain there for an extra day and a half, claiming they were still conducting tests, but clearly they were not. When my mother said it was pointless and that she didn’t feel comfortable in the hospital and therefore, wanted to go back home, they said they’d complain to the doctor that she was refusing medical advice from the practice.
The most outrageous place I’ve ever been to and even though I’ve written a nasty complaint to the hospital, I am not sure how much of it will be heard. I know that hopefully this review will have quite the impact on the hospital, and I think it needs to be shut down.

The team that helped with physical therapy and recovery after my husband’s accident was very helpful, thorough, and all in all, brilliant. They did an excellent job in not only nursing him back to health but giving him a mental boost. He loved it here.

They have zero compassion for patients, which is alarming, considering how big of a hospital it is. Especially the ER- it is just filthy and you’ll be surprised how many patients are neglected health care. Even worse, they just shove you into different corners of the waiting room and expect you to rot there for all eternity. When I had horrible back pain (that I thought I would pass out from the pain), they literally shoved me on a gurney and I lay there for more than 5 hours- not even slightly exaggerating.

And you want to know the worst part? People here say that the minimum wait at the ER waiting room is 6-7 hours. They don’t even care about you until you’re seen by the doctor. I remember shivering my butt off on that gurney that night because the heating system was down and it was March! Imagine. I’m not just talking about myself, there were at least 20 other patients in that room with me, all of them cold and tired too.

They could’ve easily distributed blankets or something hot to drink as compensation. But no, they were busy tending to themselves. When I had to go to the bathroom, I thought I would die, because I could barely stand straight, let alone walk to the other corner of the room. They treat patients in the most inhumane way, I would never recommend to anyone, not even my worst enemies.

The Labor and Delivery unit at Woodhull is absolutely stunning. A hidden secret is that they have recently spruced up the place, so that means bigger suites, better services and a lot of new employees (who are experienced). I was lucky enough to get an appointment early on, so my entire pregnancy was at this hospital. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience here and the midwives who run this place are super professional. Even though they sort of push you towards breastfeeding, I thought it was very considerate of them. They help you with it, especially new mothers who are anxious about breastfeeding. They are true Godsends and I would recommend this place to all new mothers.
