Saint Joseph cares. Although I have never been an in-patient here, my family has been frequenting this hospital for every medical need of theirs. They have always got excellent care from the staff who man this wonderful hospital. The hospital premises is great, but what is even greater is the people who run the show. The nurses, doctors, specialists, guards, and housekeeping – everyone cares for you. The best in this part of the woods.

The ER staff rocks!!!! They knew how to address a sort of complicated issue. They took excellent care of my husband. The ER staff was attentive, kind, and very caring. We might have waited for 30 minutes which was reasonable because there was rush in the ER that day. Pleasantly surprised. Never experienced such type of care in other hospitals. Very satisfied with the way ER staff treated Rick. Thank you

Worst experience ever. These people made me wait for nearly four hours even after I told them I had severe stomach pain, and I had fainted twice while coming here due to the pain.

After the wait for nearly four hours, the ED doctor sees me, goes through the chart, asks some routine questions, and then gives some pain meds, stating the pain is not severe enough. I was like WTF….I fainted twice while coming here due to pain, and this is not severe for you. Do you want me dead for you to consider it as severe?

The doctor did not even hear me out completely. He walked out while I was in the middle of the sentence…how rude.

My son took me to another hospital where I was attended to immediately, and the source of pain was identified – ruptured appendix. An immediate operation was scheduled and thanks to these angels, I am still alive.

It was ridiculous!!!! Poor patient care!!! Not worthy of recommending this to anybody.

My son ended up visiting this hospital after he was diagnosed with three kidney stones. Two of them were very large and unable to pass naturally. The medical team did an excellent job. The doctors and nurses were competent and took terrific care of him. Very impressed and satisfied with the care that Wes got here

I had a very hellish experience in the ER a few days back. The nurse who was operating the station was very rude and did not find it necessary to answer the questions in a normal voice. She was shouting. Not only her, two other nurses were also there and they were no better than their colleague. They were making fun of the patients on their face and did not even spare their colleagues.

The doctor might have seen me for two minutes and did not correctly evaluate me. The result – misdiagnosis and I had to get admitted to another hospital for getting proper treatment. Won’t even send my worst enemy’s dead dog here…even that does need some respect.
