Worst hospital that anyone can ever come across. They have scant respect for elders and children. I brought my grandpa here, and they made his condition worse. The nurses and doctors are incompetent and do not care for their patients.

Please do a favor to yourself and your loved ones and do not bring them here for care. You will repent it!!!

I had to make an unscheduled ER visit a few days back for chest tightness. I was highly impressed with attention and care I got here. The care was exceptional from the start to the end. The nurses, doctor, x-ray and CT techs were all wonderful. All of them treated me as a person and not a number. I got respect at this place.

Thankfully, the chest pain turned out to be a muscle pull and nothing else. Very satisfied with the care that I got at this hospital. Won’t hesitate to return.

Healthwise, 2018 has been a terrible year for my family. There was not a month where we did not have to visit the hospital. My family had visited the Emergency Department several times, day surgery, radiology, surgery, rehab, as well as the 4th floor. If there was one consistent thing during all the visits it was – exceptional care by an outstanding staff. They understood our issues and worked hard to ensure that our problems were addressed.

This has become our go-to hospital now for everything!!!

Came here a few days back with a broken shoulder. I was in extreme pain. The ER team were caring and got down to work very quickly. They got me admitted to the 4th floor to get my pain under control. The staff on the floor were also exceptional, and everybody worked in sync.

Before long, my pain was brought under control, and the shoulder fixed, and I have regained movement of the joint. Thank you for the excellent care

My brother was treated at the ER. He received very incompetent care from the doctor and nurse. These idiots ignored significant symptoms and critical history. The nurse did not perform explicit orders, and the doctor did not ensure that the orders were completed.

He just came after few hours and issued discharge orders. He also did not go over the test results as well as the diagnosis with my brother. We felt we wasted our time coming to this place. Would have got much better care elsewhere.
