The place has been good to me and has taken very good care of all my needs while I was admitted there. I honestly do not know what I would have done f that place didn’t exist.

Parkland is highly well maintained, to an extent that you can use their floors as a mirror to take a good look at yourselves. They have a lobby that smells good and unlike a hospital and they have maintained it very well with fresh flowers in tall vases. The ambiance makes you feel welcome at that place.

Everything is so organized and the staff who work there leave no room for confusion. Their patient care is so meticulous and they combine it with a lot of care, compassion and warmth.

Thank you so much Parkland for taking such good care of me.

God bless them all!! People here are very nice and they leave no stone unturned to ensure their patient’s comfort. This place has always been and will be my first choice and there is absolutely no doubt about it.

I have been her thrice; twice in the ER and once I was admitted. And always they have been of great help not just for me but also to my family members. Even though this is a hospital, I feel at home whenever I am here. I feel like every other nurse who takes care of me; I have known them for ages and they a part of my family.

I feel lucky to be living in a locality where there is such a good hospital.

The place is good if you go by the infrastructure perspective but other than that, there is nothing good about the hospital. It has a great front desk, a well kept lobby and looks amazing from the outside. But that’s about it!!

But on the other hand, they have no sense of emergency, they do not look after their patients well and on top of all that, they are pretty rude at times too. The parking space is also cluttered and most of the time completely occupied. I have always found it difficult to get a slot there and many a times had to drive back because I couldn’t managed to find a space.

The ER is also a complete joke; nobody actually bothers to take a look at you even if your case is heavily serious. They make you wait for hours on an end and there have been times when I have even walked of the place because I had lost hope of getting checked by a doctor.

I would gave the place a zero rating and the worst review on earth for the way they have treated me. I was literally tortured by them during my stay there and harassed because of their fraudulent billing practices.

The nurses who work there are the worst ones on earth. They prick and poke you impatiently with the needles and have absolutely no consideration that you are a human being too. They seriously need to have a small amount of compassion for their patients.

I have even had a situation wherein I asked for help and the nurse wickedly smiled at me and threatened me too. Such is their unprofessional attitude and behavior towards their patients. Even if I am on my deathbed, I am never gonna come back here.

I have worked in this hospital for 5 years and when I did, I have always made sure that things go on smoothly for the patients from my end. But with a twist of fate, it so happened because of an accident, I myself landed up here.

Even as a patient, I loved this hospital due to the best care that patients get. Everybody is professional here and I too got the best care from them. They were extremely kind to me just like how they were to their other patients.

Plus the hospital is all nice and clean and well maintained at all times. And the food they serve here goes through two levels of quality check and then gets served to the patients. The food that I was given as a patient was quite bland but it definitely met my nutrition aspects.

The place looks all decked up but the people who work here are dumb and shit heads. They are only concerned about their pay checks and nothing else. Doctors are the most unprofessional one I have ever seen in my life.

If we try and ask for help, they behave as if we have committed some crime and can even try and get you arrested for it making false accusations.

Stay away from Parkland for your own peace of mind.

Although I did not like my whole experience at this hospital and they did nothing to help, I would still say the nurses who work for them are nice. But the management is so damn disorganized that nothing happens on time here and if you demand an explanation, they make your life hell by treating you and the patient you have accompanied really bad.

It is the management of the place that I despised. Nothing good can become of a hospital if they treat their customers like shit. And they are also seriously understaffed. I have seen their nurses and doctors struggle with their patients and run from one patient to another because they do not have enough people to look after their patients.

Such sorry state of affairs!!!
