I can’t even believe that this place is still open, by far the worst place where one could seek medical attention in all of Massachusetts. To be candid, I will deny ever going to this hospital to anyone but thankfully forums mask your identity just enough. You will not believe how filthy this hospital is, not just in terms of actual filth, but the doctors and the nurses and everything they talk about: absolute garbage.

Even though this is ridiculously stereotypical, the nurses sit around in groups and gossip about doctors, complain about administration and what not. Something I would only picture happening in TV soaps. But no, it’s a real life thing at this hospital. And the doctors are somewhat inappropriate- not specifying any gender because I’ve felt this with both. Basically, if you value your life even a smidge, you’d consider any other hospital before coming here. ‘Nuf said.

If there was the option to give a hospital negative stars, I would reserve that right for this hospital. Not only do the worst doctors in all of America work here, but the staff, in general, are the most inconsiderate human beings I’ve ever come across- and I used to be in prison. So that’s saying quite a bit. My sister was having some major nausea-related issues with her pregnancy and needed someone to take her in. When we got here, they were acting very inconsiderate, told her she didn’t need to come all the way down here just for that. “JUST for that.” Psshh.

It’s crazy how a good hospital experience can determine the rest of your hospital visits- this was the experience I had at Signature Brockton and honestly, it changed my opinion for the better. Also, it’s important to note that I was born at South Shore and ever since I can remember, I’d been going there. But sometimes a more personal experience and in general, better treatment is all you need to change your roots. May have felt a little like I was cheating on South Shore, but what the hell.

First of all, I even considered Signature Brockton because my doctor had recommended a surgery for my condition (which shall be unnamed-muahaha) and the surgeon he recommended for it worked at SBH. Let’s just say one thing led to another, and with each hospital visit, I made I realized just how much I was starting to like SBH more than SSH. More importantly, I decided to get the surgery done at Brockton and it was a success- not only was the surgery team super efficient, but I liked the recovery process post surgery also. After this surgery was when I decided that Signature Brock would probably be a better fit for me.

Post that, I had to be brought here one more time, which was last week. Had a terrible headache and a migraine tablet wouldn’t do the trick. So my mother drove me over to the ER at Brockton, even though she was basically driving me over to South Shore. I think it’s pretty cool that the ER at Brockton is very clean, spacious and there’s plenty of room for patients and their families to chill while waiting for the doctors to call out for them. Once I got in, it was a sinch; the entire staff was super supportive, and considering I’d been through surgery here before, the doctors and surgeons that recognized me made small talk and were very polite, asking about my health.

The nurse who took my vitals was also very sweet and informative. The doctor left no stone unturned and answered all my questions, even the silly ones, with zero judgments. This is the best thing about this place, you won’t feel like it’s a hospital. Even though everyone is super professional and everything, you still feel like you’re having a normal conversation with a father figure. Love this hospital to bits and even though no one prays to come back to hospitals, god forbid, if I have to, I’m sure it’ll be here. My life is in good hands at Signature Brockton. Peace.

I’ve never been to an emergency room before, but I’m glad my first time was at Signature Brockton. One of the best places to get yourself treated, the doctors take excellent care of you, they don’t leave your sight for a minute and ask you before doing anything- even prescribing medication for you. Very thorough in everything and double check everything too. Overall I had a good experience, all things considered.

It’s hard to suggest a good hospital in a horrific scene like Brockton, MA but hey, Signature Brockton is one of the good ones- you have my word on that. Even though I’ve only been to Brockton a couple of times in the last 5 years, one thing that has remained constant is this hospital.
One of my uncles used to be a doc here, so I’d always received special treatment, never had to wait in line for an appointment, always got my medication for free and what not. But even after my uncle passed, I come here and realize that without the special treatment, it’s still much better than most hospitals in New York.
The care for the patients is still there, the nurses still work their butts off to make sure you’re getting the treatment you need and the doctors are doing everything they can to treat you.
Additionally, they are indulging in various community service related programs and other terrific clinical programs to benefit the general public. This was what impressed me the most TBH, and I will always recommend Signature Brockton.

It’s crazy how all my life I’ve lived in Brockton and the minute I step outside of Massachusetts, I can practically feel the quality of health care depreciate. I will back Signature Brockton all the way because they were there for me during my chemo and supported me 100%. Plus I know most of the doctors and nurses here, they are the sweetest souls. All they do is love patients and care for them, day and night. No complaints.
