I needed a cardiac ablation and I can’t praise the cardiac rehabilitation center enough. First off, anyone who has had a cardiac ablation before knows how stressful the procedure can be. From beginning to end, the cardiologists and other staff made me feel as comfortable as I could be and even though I was crying non stop, they did everything they could to calm me down.

My wife gave birth to our baby boy on 2nd April at Winthrop and she had the best experience ever. Even though we wanted to have a natural water birth, at the last moment, she wanted to get an epidural and then get out of the pool- no matter what our decision, the OB was extremely supportive and listened to whatever we said. They had no counter arguments and there was no tension whatsoever.

The kind of relationship where you have a good understanding between a doctor and their patient- that’s all you can hope for in a hospital and at Winthrop, this was delivered smoothly (pun intended).

Some things about the hospital also: they are extremely clean. Like, freaky clean. I am totally OCD about cleanliness, so I approved 100%. The rooms were well maintained, well kept, and the staff are amazingly caring and sweet. Even more than that, they have very positive attitudes. I remember one of the surgeons was so hopeful about a patient’s surgery that he was praying for it. Amazing environment. All in all, a great experience. Thank you, Winthrop.

What kind of a hospital is this? Everything, everyone is so hostile, the vibe you get as soon as you enter this hospital is NEGATIVE. Almost like every single patient that goes inside has zero hopes of getting out, because the doctors are always frowning and complaining. I legit heard one doctor complain about a patient not having a good insurance policy. Like, WHAT? Not something you want to hear… from a doctor no less! Beware.

I was a little scared about changing hospitals when it came to delivering my third baby because that can be scary: especially when you have to rely on your friend’s information about how good it is. My previous delivery was legit a nightmare so I knew I had to be far away from St. Charles.

My bestie recommended that we try out Winthrop, and my husband and I checked it out a few times. The first couple of appointments were a little different from the previous hospitals we’d been to, everyone was being nauseating-ly nice. Later on, once we settled in though, they threw out the sugar coating but it was still good service.

Right before giving birth, my sister flew in from Chicago to come see me and the nurses stopped her from entering the room because I had to get a C-section done. I was honestly a little happy because I wouldn’t have to be conscious through the pain, but I would like to have known that my sister showed up before the actual pregnancy.

She said that one of the nurses was very rude with her and made it seem like it was her fault that the flight got delayed. AAnyway, our overall experience at this hospital was good, 4 stars for their service, the OB, the nurses, and the food. Would recommend this practice for all expecting mothers, the OBs here are very considerate and caring.

Hands down, the best hospital in New York- the staff here are very supportive and it might just be my favorite hospital (sure is a weird thing to say). The reason why I feel that this level of commendation is required for the staff here is that they really go that extra mile to ensure the patient feels as comfortable as they possibly can. They also try to make patients feel happy, as best they can. I had to get a knee surgery done and was extremely nervous about it (needless to say) but the nurses who prepped me before surgery and my surgeons were SO supportive. They calmed me down with their assuring words and supporting gestures. Really appreciated this!

I am a Mineola resident and even though the health care at my hospital is amazing, when my son fell ill, I knew I couldn’t take him to Mineola. Took him to Winthrop and thank heavens I did. There is just this sense of calm that you get at this hospital, almost like a load being taken off your chest. They take amazing care of your children, the pediatrics department is legit dope. The facilities offered here are insane. The cafeteria food is actually good- my son complained about my smoked chicken after eating it from here. Will never forget the service and amazing doctors at Winthrop.

Have honestly been waiting for a week so that something would mess up my opinion about this hospital but what can I say. They are bulletproof. Literally the only hospital in New York where I feel they genuinely and fully care about what a patient is going through and try to help them. In so many other hospitals, all they care about is scamming the patients: keeping them in for extra time so they can squeeze money from your insurance companies and such nonsense. But my experience at this hospital was completely different.

My grandmother has been sick for weeks and I had to bring her to the ER twice just this week. Both times I burst out crying as soon as she was wheeled into the ER, and both times I had someone’s shoulder to cry on, each time I had doctors come up to me and reassure me that they would take the best care of my abuela and trust me, they did. Even though she died this morning, I have nothing bad to say about the doctors or their health care, because if my abuela had anything to say about the health care here, she would say, increíble! A massive shout out to all those who helped her and comforted her during her last hours.

Have to give a special shout out to Nurse Kesha who helped me tremendously during my delivery at the L&D unit at NYU Winthrop.
