This is one helluva hospital. I had been admitted here and was totally dissatisfied with the care given to me, and my condition was not improving. My wife and I tried talking to the doctors, but they were not willing to provide me with answers.

We made a complaint to the hospital administration and surprise, surprise, things turned dramatically around. The doctors and nurses in charge of my care were changed, and I was able to interact with the new set of doctors and nurses more frequently, and I slowly started recovering. I was back to home within a fortnight after the switch.

I am happy, and so is my family

Administrators at Rio Grande Regional Hospital need to tell their staff to learn etiquette and manners. You do not shout down an elderly lady or talk rudely to a person just because that person turns to be more knowledgeable than you. Not only that, they do not even greet you or give a smile.

The nurses and doctors are very unprofessional too. I went there for stomachache, and the doctor made a diagnosis without even ordering a scan or even manually palpating my stomach. He just glanced at it as if his eyes had inbuilt x-rays and could find the problem.

My wife had the best birthing experience at this wonderful hospital. Everyone whom we interacted with during Aisha’s stay was friendly, helpful, and supportive. Let us admit, nobody likes to visit a hospital and more so when you are delivering and want to go quickly to the confines of your home.

Many other hospitals promise to take good care of you during labor and delivery, but many fail to do so, and this is more so after birth. However, this hospital is different. They took care of Aisha even after the delivery. The housekeeping, guards, food service, everyone respected and treated her well.

Very happy with the way Aisha and the baby were treated at this place. Thank you
