Been stuck in the ER for the last eight hours because the fu***ng CT machine is not playing ball and the techs are not able to goad it to work. The nurses were least bothered about the long delay. There has been absolutely no movement in the ER for the past five hours; I am not sure if everybody is supposed to get a CT scan. The ER is filled with hordes of sick people who are getting as frustrated as I am. There was some drama in between when two patients ended up coming to blows…pent up anger it seems. A few minutes ago, the cleaning lady came and did a quick mop of the floor, just ritualistic because her efforts did not result in the removal of specks of blood that was on the floor. Maybe ok for them, who knows.

Recently ended up at Penn Presbyterian for a procedure. I had heard about the negative reviews and was not too pleased when my PCP referred me here. I have to say was pleasantly surprised when I went there. The staff was outstanding. They were respectful, kind, and compassionate while being highly knowledgeable. They made sure that my procedure was successful, and I had a comfortable stay.

Ended up at Penn Presbyterian with a severe stomachache, which was ever increasing. Everyone at the hospital was super friendly. The staff and the ER doctor was great. They run a test, and it turns out that I have a pancreatic infection. I had to stay at the hospital for four days. I did not face any issues while I was there. The wonderful staff made sure my stay was comfortable and without any further medical hiccups. Won’t think twice if the need arises to return

Went to this shithole hospital’s ER for an emergency…BIG MISTAKE. I waited there for nearly five hours, hoping that I would be seen soon. Nothing. It was just a waste of time and my insurance money. The reason why I went there – breathlessness. The staff was very rude and least bothered about my situation. Left without seeing anybody. Sheer waste of time and money

I had a right knee replacement at Penn. The care which I got here was excellent and out of this world. The surgery was successful, and three months down the line, I am doing great and on the way to complete recovery. Thanks to all the wonderful people involved in my care.
