I never thought I would see this, but this has undoubtedly been the worst ER experience ever. Simply put, these guys suck, and they suck big time. The staff is very rude, and most of them behave as if we are a nuisance to them. There are also a few who believe they own the place and they have every right to humiliate and shout down patients. The staff did not even leave elders and children.

This hospital has been kicked out of my list of go-to hospital in case of any medical emergency

Received the best care I could possibly ever get.

I have a chronic condition, and this results in frequenting the ER. Since my doctor shifted here, it has become easier for me to come and get treated.

This past Tuesday, I had a flare-up of my condition, and I ended up visiting the ER. The ER doctor was terrific and provided very excellent immediate relief. Unfortunately, my flare-up required me to stay for a few days. The care which I got on the floor was fantastic. The nurses were very professional and knowledgeable and kept my family in the loop. Did not have the opportunity to complain. Great hospital!!!! Outstanding staff.

I am writing this review for the recent ER visit. I had visited the ER at late night hours following a sudden and sharp shooting pain in my hips and back. The ER doctor was a wonderful lady who had some excellent bedside manners. She talked with me and got the details while ordering for an x-ray and MRI. MRI revealed that I had a pinched nerve and the doctor started immediate care. The entire visit to the ER lasted for only two hours, a majority of which was spent on getting images.

I love St. Luke’s! Amazing staff!

My family and I have visited several departments of this hospital, and we have always got the best care. The staff is always nice and welcoming. The doctors have the patience to listen to you and also take your inputs while providing treatment.

Everyone who is involved in patient care at this hospital is truly dedicated. They show genuine concern for the patients and are willing to walk that extra mile if it can help in patient recovery. We are happy that such a hospital exists in our area
