My brother had hip surgery at Palm Bay Hospital. The experience that he had here was excellent. Every individual we interacted with were caring, intensive, helpful, courteous, and professional. We are glad that Bob selected this hospital for getting his hip replaced. He is recovering and doing rehab at his home. Thanks for taking good care of my brother

It is time that I did this review. My family had a terrible time a few years back, in 2015, to be precise. My youngest child developed a mystery fever and slipped into a coma for a few days. We had rushed him to Palm Bay and were at this hospital for nearly 40 days. These folks brought our Johnny back. Even while we were preparing for the worst, the doctors, specialists, and nurses did not lose hope and also motivated us. Wonderful and exceptional care. These people would always be in our prayers

Let’s face it, I am not sure if people love going to the hospital. I certainly do not, and I tend to postpone the visit to as late as possible. However, last month, I ended up visiting the hospital with a severe stomach ache, which was not subsiding.

It turns out, I have diverticulitis and would need surgery to rectify it. I grudgingly agree to it. The surgery went off very well, and so did the week-long stay. The staff was very friendly and courteous. They were attentive to my needs — all in all, the best experience.

I hate this hospital. I was mistreated in the ER. The front desk lady was very rude and was literally shouting at me. I had gone there with my toddler, who was burning with fever. The lady had no empathy and shouted at me when my son started crying. The check-in nurse was also rude and did not understand that children who were sick do not sit idle. She was angry when he kept on crying and pulling his ear.

She had the gumption to tell me that he was creating a nuisance for everybody; the number of people in the ER when I was there – 3. Finally, after a two-hour wait, we were taken back to the room, and the doctor was beside us within a minute. He was the only saving grace. A nice gentleman, he evaluated my son and then prescribed appropriate meds.

One nice doctor cannot cover for the terrible experience that I had here. Not planning to come back ever!!!
