The staff in the Phoenix St. Luke's ER is fantastic. I had to come here following uneasiness and tightness in my chest with radiating left arm pain, all classic symptoms of a heart attack. I was very worried and wondering how a 37-year-old can have a stroke.

Long story short, came to this ER. Registration was done in a jiffy, and I was taken in and then back to the room within seconds. The doctor comes in, hears me out, orders a few tests. When the results came in, she came back and discussed the results with me. I was having an anxiety attack, but she suggested a follow-up visit with a cardiac specialist just to rule everything out. That was very nice of her. She could have run various tests and run up a huge bill, but she did only those tests which were required.

I am very pleased with the wonderful care that I got here. Won’t hesitate to come back

The nicest nurses and doctors that I've ever met. I had checked myself in for a left knee surgery following an accident. I was seen by the ER, given primary care, transferred to the surgery, and then to the ICU, step-down ICU, and then home. The surgery was performed by a wonderful surgeon who was very friendly and explained everything to me in detail.

Besides the medical team, the support services were also wonderful. The patient food was excellent, and so was the cafeteria food – hearty yet cheap, according to my brother.

Very happy with the care that I got at Phoenix St. Luke’s

I recently took my father to St Luke's for ankle surgery. The care which my Pops received was outstanding. The doctors, surgeon, and nurses were exceptional. They were attentive to all his needs. The medical team was very caring and did not hesitate to help him when required. Everyone was friendly and knowledgeable. A clean facility. My Pops is thrilled with the treatment he received here.

AVOID THE St. Luke’s ER….

The doctors and nurses are least bothered about you and would only look at you if you are bleeding to death. Anything less than that, you are fit as a fiddle and unnecessarily wasting the time of these people.

I had visited this place after I felt a pop in my hand and immediately knew something was not right. There was a slight pain, but nothing else. Just wanting to make things sure, I visited this hospital. The doctor was not very happy with the fact there was nothing serious. He ordered an x-ray knowing fully well that it would be clear. The x-ray is clear, and I am discharged.

Not satisfied with the care, I visited another ER where an MRI is suggested, which showed that the ulnar collateral ligament was completely torn. Surgery was required to repair the damage.

As if the misdiagnosis was not enough, St. Luke’s charged me $4500.00. A classic case of medical fleecing.
