I visited Sinai Hospital located in Baltimore once with my father and was highly impressed by the quality of care that he received. My 87-year-old father was admitted to Sinai Hospital with cardiac issues. While he was in the hospital, he was taken good care of. The techs, nurses and the doctors, all treated my father in a caring and professional manner as if he was their loved one. Everyone gave their 100% in treating him and tried to accommodate his and his family's wishes. Thank you, Sinai! Nothing but respect

Sinai Hospital has one of the worst waiting time ever. I went on a Wednesday evening and had to wait for nearly two hours. This, on a slow night, is completely unnecessary and unbearable. I felt the staff had absolutely no intention of taking care of patients who walked in through the door. The staff, it seemed, was more concerned about completing their takeaway than being worried about the patients who were present in the emergency room. Please avoid this hospital. Sinai Hospital is a joke

This review is especially for the treatment meted out to my wife after she underwent a cardiac procedure.

My wife was admitted to Sinai and underwent a cardiac procedure in the Cardiac Cath Center a few days back. The procedure went off smoothly. Thank You!

However, the real issue started after that. Her procedure was completed at around 7:45 am. Until 3:30 PM, nobody, gave her anything to drink or eat. It seemed they just forgot. She was then moved to her room at around 6:30. She still did not get anything. Funnily, nobody ordered dinner for her even when she was scheduled to spend the night here. I caught hold of a doctor and informed her that my wife is a diabetic and she has not had food from the morning. I wondered if starving was a part of the protocol after the procedure. The doctor was surprised about it and immediately called a nurse and ordered my wife to be given food.

Clearly, the nurse was not happy with the complaint, and all my wife got was a leftover boxed sandwich at 8:30 PM. Totally unacceptable!

The nursing staff and the doctors at Sinai Hospital are amazing!! They took exceptional care of my mother pre-op, during the procedure and post-op when she underwent a heart procedure. The medical team always had a smile and did not hesitate to answer any questions that we asked. They also kept on checking with my mother to make sure that she was making progress. I do not have words that can express our gratitude toward this wonderful staff. We are very grateful for the excellent care that my mother got at Sinai

I have visited almost all the hospitals in Baltimore City for different reasons. Amongst all of them, Sinai Hospital is the best. It took excellent care of me!!! I always believed that everyone could have a rough day and it holds true for healthcare professionals also, who I must admit work under a lot of stress and pressure. If anything goes wrong, a patient’s life is at stake. I do not think that looking at one day’s attitude or work should be enough for declaring whether a hospital is good or bad. We need to give people a second chance if it’s possible; check around for opinion of people who actually went to the hospital more than once. That I believe will give an accurate picture.
