A ridiculous ER experience. I went in with severe chest pain and the idiots in the emergency room did not deem it necessary to run any tests to rule out any diagnosis. The doctor seemed very angry that I had come for this silly issue. My med – OTC TUMS…he did not even listen to me.

Complete waste of time. I would have been treated better if I had gone to the nearby clinic. You folks can undoubtedly do better.

I walked in with a deep gash on my hand after a kitchen accident. What does the idiot in the guise of a doctor tell me…”hey, it is nothing but a small cut…does not look very infected to me.” I was like WTF….does it mean that a little bit of infection is okay for this idiot.

I decided to leave and got myself sutured up at another hospital where there was no pre-judgment of any type.

Completely incompetent staff in the ER. All of them should be kicked out. The front desk should be the first person to be shown the door. She was very rude and least helpful. Her expression gave the feeling that the patients were a nuisance. The ER nurse and the doctor were no better, and after a wait of five hours, my time with the doctor was only three minutes. The doctor ordered some OTC meds and discharged me without hearing me out. I won’t be back

I had a same-day surgery here two months back. It was a good experience. The staff and the surgeon were kind and outstanding people. Very professional, they went about with the procedure and thanks to these exceptional people, I was out of the hospital within five hours. All of you would be in my prayers.

Amazing! I went in with a broken ankle and was out of the hospital within four hours. The ER nurse took me in quickly, and the doctor was beside me within seconds. An x-ray was ordered, and it showed a crack. A soft cast was put in place, and an appointment was scheduled with an orthopedist, and I was on my way. All of this took only four hours. Extremely friendly and very professional staff.

Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital runs one of the best Labor and Delivery centers in this part of the woods. They have some of the most knowledgeable and kindest staff. My wife did not have a normal labor and delivery. But the staff ensured that she did not face any problems during the entire time. Thanks to the exceptional staff, both Jincy and April are doing great!

An excellent hospital. My dentist works out of here, and so does other specialists. One does not have to run around for meeting specialists and getting tests and other stuff done. The nurses and other staff members are absolute gems and know how to get things done around. For a hospital with a reasonable rush of patients every day, it is quite clean. I have visited a few areas and did not find anything that would have highlighted the negligence of the housekeeping staff.

All in all, a wonderful place to get yourself treated
