Unfortunately, I had to take my father to the ER on a Sunday morning. Have to give it to them for taking him in quickly and starting the treatment process.

Now comes the real shocker. They run a few tests, and after three hours, a physician comes and says, “Nothing to worry.” I am happy. I ask what labs and imaging – A CT and some much-needed labs. I was perplexed. I asked him again what labs were ordered…”Why are you worried about the names of the labs...your dad is doing fine.”

I was shocked by the answer. They deem he is fit for discharge and hand over the discharge papers. We might have been in the ER for maybe five to six hours, and not even once did the nurses or the physician tell me what labs were ordered. I still cannot understand why the secrecy about the name of the labs!

I am not sure if I would be coming back after this experience.

We were passing through the town when my wife needed to visit a hospital. On inquiring, we were guided to this hospital. The staff was terrific and took Angie right in. The nurses were wonderful, caring, and friendly. Angie was seen by an exceptional doctor who not only had excellent bedside manners but also was very knowledgeable. He talked with her, heard her out, gave a big smile after the evaluation, comes out, and tells me, “You should stop in between…she is hungry and has stomach cramps.” I could not stop myself from laughing out loud. Great experience.

Idiots…Dumbhead…Bozos…this hospital is fit to be shut down.

I went in with a swollen wrist. The doctor comes, orders a scan and once the report comes, says no breaks and I am free to go. I ask them some wrist guard or anything that would help me use the wrist. They come with an ace wrap and ibuprofen. The real punch comes after… “if you have any pain or notice any swelling, then get yourself checked with a specialist…”

I could not get what they meant by it…either they are very inefficient and did not do a proper job, or were pulling my leg. I do not think the latter is true...

True to their words, my hand swelled up within a few hours, and a scan at another hospital revealed a major crack in the wrist…not sure how they missed it. Won't even take my dead cat there.

I had an excellent experience here. I was seen in very quickly. The doctor was a thorough gentleman and had excellent manners. He was patient enough to hear me out, order a few tests, explain the results to me, and then involve my inputs in devising a treatment plan. I might have spent only 15 minutes with him, but it felt as if I had spent hours with him. Very happy

To the angels on the 7th-floor tower, you ROCK!!! The best nursing staff in the entire world. They took excellent care of my nona and ensured that all her needs were met and she was comfortable during her stay here. Everybody was gracious and attentive. We will come here if any medical need arises.

This has been our go-to hospital since January 2019, when we shifted to this area. The nursing staff, as well as doctors, are caring and very attentive. Have never given a chance to complain. Best hospital in the entire region.
