Who do these guys think they are…our boss?

These f****ng ba*****s think that we are just numbers and can treat us like shit. F****rs, it is our hard-earned money, and it is only because of people like us, you good-for-nothing f****rs are surviving. If we ask for a specific test and as long as it is not illegal, you do not have any right to cancel it or ignore the request. We are your masters, and what we request should be done…

If we avoid coming here, then you good-for-nothing f****rs would be sitting at home, doing nothing.

I had to visit the St. Luke’s ER two months back after I had severe back pain and was unable to do anything…no movement at all. I am 25 yo and was shit scared. All useless thoughts started rushing into my mind. Seeing my condition, my fiancé brought me here. The nurses and the doctors were superb, friendly, very caring, and highly knowledgeable. I was here for three hours and underwent a thorough evaluation. They did everything in their hands to control the pain, did all the necessary imaging and then gave me tips to prevent recurrence. I work in medical field, and the way these folks went about their job was highly impressive. Very pleased. Huge Respect

My mother underwent a major surgery here in June of this year. Her doctor performs surgeries at various hospitals, including this one and gave us an option of coming here. We agreed, and I have to say that this was an excellent decision. The doctor is a wonderful person, and I am glad we trusted her on this. The entire surgery went off without even a single problem.

The staff was exceptional. Very caring, kind, and attentive. Luckily, my mother did not have the usual postoperative problems due to which we were discharged after a day’s stay.

The hospital is old, but the facilities are very modern. The bathrooms are clean, and so is the entire hospital. The room which we got was very comfortable. The food…well, it was hospital food, so not much to say there.

Overall, a wonderful experience. If given a choice, we would come here again

My husband underwent surgery here in February 2019. An excellent surgeon did his surgery. The care which he got before, during, and after the operation was exceptional. The staff was courteous, friendly, and very caring. Ric was in the hospital for nearly a week and not even once did the care slack. They did not give us even one chance to complain. We have decided to make this hospital our port-of-call for any medical need
