We had the worst hospital experience ever! My wife and I went to St. Luke’s Cornwall ER as she was suffering from a bout of cough and spiking fever. When the bozos first checked her, they said it looked like she had a fever but guess what – no doctor visits and no medicines for fever. We were there for nearly seven hours and might have told 5-6 different nurses to check her temperature and give some medications. Each one informed me they would come back soon. No one came. Finally, we decided enough is enough and just informed the nurse that we are leaving AMA. The nurse’s reaction was epic. She said, “Okay, one less person to attend to.” I have also instructed the insurance not to approve any payments because we have not received any treatment. If they bill me, I will force them to apologize for the treatment meted out and then make then cancel the bill. They messed with the wrong person.

I was on a 10-hour road trip as part of my job. I visited a hotel for a break and while returning tripped and fell face first into the concrete. At first, did not feel anything, saw just a few bruises. But as time went by the face had swelled up, and the bruise was swollen. I was driving through NY and searched for the nearest hospital and was guided to St. Luke’s Cornwall Hospital. I was received by a friendly staff, had an easy check-in. There was no wait time, and every staff member whom I encountered was caring and helpful. The doctor ordered a scan which showed a nasal fracture. I was fixed up pretty fast. Did not have typical ER experience. Though I wish never to revisit this hospital, I sure would recommend this hospital

My wife was rushed into the ER in extreme pain as a result of stuck kidney stone. The ER personnel took her in very quickly. While a nurse was taking her vitals and calming her down, another nurse called their urologist who promptly answered the phone (mine never picked up the phone). The ER was prompt with required testing and resultant treatment. She stayed overnight and underwent a procedure early Sunday morning. Everyone we encountered was gentle, caring and very attentive to the needs of my wife. On a Sunday at 7:30 AM, the urologist, and the entire surgical team arrived promptly, just to treat my wife!!! The food was also delicious! BTW, she had twice scheduled an appointment for removal of stones with our doctor, but he never arrived on time.

Horrible!!! My father broke his hip, and he had to be brought to this ER via ambulance. He was left unattended and in pain despite several requests from us for some pain relievers. We were attended to after nearly eight hours and put into a room for surgery the next day. The surgeon, though a sweet guy, came on his own sweet time. If you value your time, then visit other ERs where they provide prompt service.

My daughter had to go to the ER for a minor emergency. The staff was very attentive and started treatment immediately. The registration nurse came and asked for details only after the treatment was started lest it came in between the treatment. The only issue is parking your vehicle when arriving at the ER. There is a lot of confusion, and there are no dedicated spots for 'emergency' parking.
