This is by far the best hospital I have ever been to. Never ever before have I felt so safe; that too in a hospital. I suffer from a rare condition and on learning that the doctors at this hospital decided to keep me instead of driving me away. They took good care of me and made me feel comfortable.

They were highly qualified and professionals and they acted like one. I feel so glad to have come to a place where the doctors as well as the nurses are knowledgeable and they treat you well too; so very humane! I feel completely relieved to be in good hands and I would like to thank God and the people working here for the same!

I write this review based on my horrific experience here at the ER. I do not know about the other departments; so I would not like to comment on them! But one thing is for sure; the ER of this hospital is gross; far beyond one can even imagine. I could see hair balls rolling around on the floor from one corner to the other. Then there was other trash that were lying just outside of the dustbin and made the floor dirty.

To add to all of this, there was this weird unpleasant smell too. I could see dirt, grime and hair on every nook and corner of the place, even under the bed and I feel the place needs a very good clean up. There a big time wait as well but since my case did not needed to be attended to immediately, I put up with that.

But when a nurse attended to me, she did her job well and was warm and friendly to me. Things are pretty much fine here and a thorough cleaning up would definitely do wonders to this place.

I have mixed feelings towards this place because at times I have had really good experiences and there are other times when they drained the entire patience off me.

I do not know how the same place can function differently on various occasions. At times, they are all friendly, lovey-dovey and sugar coated and there are times when they treat you like complete shit. And my recent experiences are more of negative ones. And I have started to despise the whole place.

I think I should look out for good options before the whole place turns topsy-turvy.

Mistakes are all that the doctors and nurses who work here know to make. It is a tedious task for them to get something right! And then they end up doing some very serious mistake which could literally take away a patient’s life. And even if they do, they are absolutely in no mood to apologize.

I know this place since my childhood and trust me, it was absolutely wonderful at one point in time. But now there is a degradation of quality and because of this, there are issues popping up with the patients.

I would never go here to risk my life!!

I visited a cousin of mine who was admitted here and I could see that she was in a lot of pain and emotional trauma during her stay here. After all, it’s a hospital and at the end of the day, no one feels like staying in one unless they have no other choice and the nurses who attended to her made things difficult for her too.

So, she was in a very bad state and I was pained to see that too. But I consoled her saying that she would be out in a few day’s time and she was more than happy to hear that.

Then I thought I better get out and get something to eat before I get sulkier but that didn’t turn out to be a good idea either. I headed to their canteen and ordered something that they suggested was the best and when I started to eat, its taste got me depressed.

So, long story cut short; please do not make the mistake of coming here.

My daughter is admitted here because of the second degree burns she suffered and I must say she has been receiving phenomenal treatment from all the staff over here. Getting her admitted at Spectrum is one of the best decisions I ever made with respect to her.

I feel pained to see her in this condition and I hope she recovers soon but the hospital has been doing their best for her. They have been professional and extremely caring to my daughter. And as family, they make sure my wife and I are comforted too. We feel a lot better when we are around them.

My baby is very well taken care of and I can’t thank them enough for the same
