I fall sick very often, therefore it is in my fate to make trips to the hospital every now and then. And whenever I can’t avoid a visit to a hospital, I make sure I come to providence. I love this place and the way people treat me here. They treat their patients with a lot of dignity and respect, unlike many other places in the USA.

I know of my relatives too who underwent major surgeries here and they too have been very happy with the services and told me how kindly and with a lot of respect, they were treated here both before and after the surgery.

God bless the staff for the good work they do and give them strength to keep to work for other’s well-being.

Do not take your loved ones here no matter how urgent the situation is!!! Unless you want to see someone dead, you shouldn’t take them here at all. Please do not take my warning lightly as I say this out of my personal experience.

This place is not clean first of all; one could get a plethora of infections just by making a visit here. Secondly, they are understaffed because of which the doctors or the nurses have no option other than not to care about their patients because they are fatigued all the time.

Even after all this, if you still plan on visiting Providence, then I suggest you have your funeral arrangements and life insurance in place because I am damn sure it will be of use to you after your visit here.

The place is really poor when it comes to customer service. I had taken my six year old here because she had high temperature and I suspected she could be having a flu. We came here and I took her to fast track minor care and that took more than 15 minutes. And in those 15-20 minutes, I asked them many times if she had a flu but no response from their side.

Then they came back after an hour and said she does have a flu and they had to get a strep test done and then again the nurse vanished and came back after another hour. She also said that she would give something to my daughter to bring down her fever but nothing of that sort ever happened.

I seriously couldn’t understand why such ridiculous things were happening that too when I had taken my daughter to fast track care. The whole idea of fast track looked absurd to me because of the long time they were taking to get everything together.

The place is poorly run and none of the employees who work here know what to do and even if they do know, none of them are helpful to the patients. I went to the ER and I was waiting for me to be taken in and for the treatment to start. I was here early in the evening and I was given a bed only by midnight.

And even after that they left me to myself and no doctor or nurse came to take my triage or even check on me for 2 hours at least and the next morning, they administered a few medications, let me rest for a while and sent me back home.

If this was what they could do, I would have stayed at home. I could slept on my own bed than the hard cot they had there and taken rest after taking some OTC medications.

My dad was initially in the Providence ICU and the nurses took care of him really well. There was someone or the other with him at all times and they looked after him wonderfully well.

Later he was taken to the hospice care and there, the staff appointed were far better than the ones in the ICU and every one of them was taking care of my dad as if he was their own father. A lot of love and respect for these people! My dad is indeed lucky to have people like them take care of him.

Go here at your own risk!! Its not a joke; the place and its people are such…

From the moment you enter this place, the staff who work here have an innate capacity to make you feel as if you are a burden to them although their role and responsibility as people working in a hospital is to take care of you and ensure your comfort during your stay at the hospital.

And if someone doesn’t like doing that job, they should leave it as soon as possible and switch to doing something that they do like and not end up making a patient feel like a burden. And that is exactly what they did to my loved one when I got him here.

Such things are sad and I wouldn’t want any poor soul to experience it this way!! So, next time definitely not coming here.

The doctors who work here. I found them to be nice but I don’t think I can say the same thing about the nurses and the other sub-staff. All of them seemed to be overworked, moody and they definitely did not have time to care about their patients.

And one of them even bluntly told me that the only thing they are actually bothered about is their paycheck. Whoaaa!!! Now that was not expected at all. So, if you do care about yourselves, then please do not make the mistake of visiting the place because people here do not care about you….

Providence is the closest one to my home and even though I wouldn’t say the place is remarkable or something. It is good overall with nice staff and reasonably decent facilities. The whole facility too is well-kept and clean and so are its surroundings.

And their nurses and ER guys are good too. If it is an emergency, they ensure you are catered to and don’t let you suffer in pain by making you wait for long. If I have be in a hospital, I wouldn’t mind being here for it is a good place to be.
