The girls working in this hospital are either handicapped or are so lazy and uneducated that they do not know how to get anything done. I do not agree with the first part; the girls are blood lazy. I called the hospital a few months back and was put on hold for nearly an hour. The second time I called was last month when I had to get a mammogram set up. These lazy bums kept me on hold for nearly an hour-and-a-half before setting up the appointment.

Moreover, despite scheduling way ahead, I always end up waiting for nearly two to three hours, because these idiots always overbook. Yesterday, when I called, it was no different. But I had a plan to embarrass them. I called them up and when they put me on hold, got into a car and came to the hospital and got the schedule set up. It took just 15 minutes. While leaving, I asked them to cancel the call as I have already booked an appointment. It was only then that the girls realized I had pulled a fast one on them.

St. Mary’s Medical Center is clean, and the staff very friendly. They are very professional and eager to walk that extra mile to ensure that the patient is comfortable and their priorities are met. I ended up visiting the hospital for lower abdominal pain, which turned out to be appendicitis. The surgeon did a phenomenal job. The thing which impressed me the most about this hospital is that everyone is treated here and they do not worry about insurance or lack of it. I am truly impressed, and I plan to shift my care to St. Mary Medical Center

This is my first here, and I am already impressed. As I was awaiting my turn in the lobby, I was struck by how happy the employees were when they came to work. It was just 6:00 AM but already there were a lot of smiles and greetings going around. The employees genuinely seemed ready to face the day with positivity and warmth. When it was my turn for the procedure, I was prepped and readied for the procedure by a team of wonderful nurses who while being very jovial also were ready to answer my questions without any hesitation. They also explained to me the whole procedure in detail.

Accept it, nobody likes to visit a hospital just for the heck of it. We go there when there is an urgent need, and won’t it be nice to know that our care is being handled by a team of highly professional and extremely knowledgeable people. At St. Mary Medical Center, you can get that confidence

I had to pay an unfortunate visit to the ER following a bad UTI. The ER waiting room was quiet, very clean, and comfortable. The nurses were patient and very comforting. Talking with the doctor was easy. She did not use any heavy jargons or tried to rush me…she was excellent. I had a wonderful experience here, and I was out of the ER in three hours, despite there being a rush. Highly recommended.
