I went to the Sacred Heart Emergency Room three nights back with a loved one who was having an unbearable lower abdominal pain. Every single staff member we interacted with – the security guard, the registration team, the nurse, the on-duty RN, as well as the on-call doctor – were excellent. Very friendly. They were nice, helpful, professional, and highly knowledgeable. The hospital treated us with respect. The ER helped us quickly. She was taken in, diagnosed in a jiffy, and once things were under control, they released us for further follow up with the PCP. This was a wonderful visit. Very impressed with the care and respect we got here

Idiots at Sacred Heart Hospital do not know how to diagnose a person.

My wife went to the ER after having chest congestion, pain, cough with occasional bloody mucus, nausea, and chills. The ER doctor saw her for maybe two minutes, did not order any tests or imaging, just diagnosed her with a bad case of flu and dismissed her. No meds were given. We went to another ER, where they ordered some tests and diagnosed her with pneumonia.

Excellent Work, Sacred Heart! Down the line, you might also diagnose a heart attack as indigestion or a brain hemorrhage as a migraine.

Apart from misdiagnosing her, the doctor also had the gumption to tell us one should not visit the hospital for a simple case of flu. It wastes a lot of resources. We know that f****ng a****le. Since it seemed much more than the flu, we came here. Lesson well learned. Will not step in again and also advise friends and family to seek care anywhere else but here.

Physicians at the Outpatient Department of Sacred Heart Hospital are excellent. They gave me an appointment earlier this month! This is not possible with other outpatient facilities! I was highly impressed with my detailed interview, a comprehensive review of my old medical records, as well as a plan of care! They also gave a detailed discharge summary of today's visit for the records

I was admitted to the hospital for nearly ten days, and I do not have any complaints. They treated me very well. They gave me respect and treated me like a priority. The nurses, doctors, specialists across various departments, the social worker – everyone treated me like I was royalty. Thanks to the wonderful care, I am back on the mend after a life-threatening illness. The only thing that stood out like a sore thumb was the average food, but then this is a not luxury resort. Thanks, SACRED HEART for everything
