I spent a few days in the PICU with my toddler and was happy with the way the staff treated my child. The nurses and doctors were on top of things and did not spare any effort to ensure that he recovered well and was shifted to the regular floor ASAP. I also liked the fact that the doctors did not hesitate to answer the question that my husband and I had. All the questions were answered with a smile, followed by a warm reassurance that things will be fine. They made sure my son was comfortable during this stay here.

The care was good enough to get my son back on his feet very quickly

How long would it take for a patient to be seen in an entirely empty ER? You might say instantly. It could be right in other hospitals, but at St. Joe’s UMC you might end up waiting for many hours just to get triaged, forget about getting seen by the doctor.

My nephew went to this godforsaken place, and in an empty ER, these idiots made him wait for three hours just to check him in and then another three hours for being taken into the room. He had gone at 11:30 pm and was still not seen by a doctor at even 6:00 AM. When asked about the reason for such a long delay, they were going in circles and never answered appropriately.

Finally, he was seen by a doctor at 6:15 AM for two minutes and dismissed with a script for anti-inflammatories and OTC pain meds…Could not believe it. Six hours wait for a two-minute evaluation. We are not going to come here again.

A top-notch hospital that sure knows how to treat its patients. The specialists were able to get hold of what ailed my girlfriend and save her life. The doctors and nurses were very responsive, knowledgeable, and friendly. Both Liz and I thank you for the medical professionalism and saving her life.
