My wife delivered our prince at Saint Mary's in mid-March. To say that we did not have a pleasant and comfortable experience would be a big understatement. I am in the healthcare field and have visited many hospitals as part of my profession, and nowhere have I seen a patient being treated so badly. The nurses were super rude and super grumpy. From the looks of it, the nurses hated their job. There was all-pervasive rudeness, incompetence, and lack of compassion amongst the nurses, doctors, as well as the anesthesia department. The room which we got after Emmie delivered was one notch better than a garbage dump. No cleanliness at all. Our request to shift to a cleaner room fell on deaf ears. People get happy when a newborn enters their life, but in our case, we were plain worried because we had no idea what kind of hospital-acquired illnesses would my son and wife contract. Only when we were discharged and reached our home, did we heave a sigh of relief. If you want a good birthing experience, then avoid Saint Mary’s. It is a sincere request from a father from the bottom of his heart. Go somewhere else. You deserve better.

This was our hospital of choice when my brother felt uneasy and started having severe chest pain. The fact that this hospital was nearer to our place also played a major role in the selection. Steve was rushed in, and he was immediately attended to by the amazing ER team. Everyone whom we interacted with was very professional and genuinely seemed concerned. Steve was ok; however, the staff ran the entire gamut of tests just to make sure that everything was alright. He was discharged on the second day. We have nothing but ultimate respect for the entire staff of St Mary's. Visit this hospital if you want a good hospital experience

My review is essentially an update on what I had previously endured. During my visit to St. Mary’s in February, I had got seven sutures after a bike accident. I was charged $3000 for these. I contested this bill, and last week, I got a reduced bill for the sutures. The bill was down to $600. I had received excellent care while I was in the emergency room, but it certainly was not in the range of $3000 which they charged. There was an additional physician bill of $1620 from a physician who did not even see me. I have contested this also and hope that the physician would also reduce his fees. But this surprise reduction is welcome and has instilled a new sense of hope. I will return for a medical visit, but just hope that this horrendous billing would not be repeated

The most unethical, unprofessional, and horrendous hospitals that I have ever come across. In 2019, people should have the minimum decency of respecting other people. The patients are also human beings, and they have emotions. Nobody gives the right to the nurses in the ER to pass inappropriate comments and snigger at patients if any questions are asked. My husband was taken to the ER, and we could feel that the staff did not like our presence. Not racial profiling, but we just interrupted their siesta. The nurses nor the doctors nor the specialists had the minimum decency to answer our questions, tell us what was happening and why certain procedures had to be conducted. Since my husband’s life was at stake, we endured all this humiliation and disrespect. Once he was discharged, we decided that as a family and as individuals, we would never step in here again.

My wife was feeling uneasy while visiting her parents, so we took her to the ER. The staff was excellent. They had excellent bedside manners and were very professional. The nurse and the doctor were amazing. My wife was discharged after four hours. Her diagnosis – indigestion caused due to overeating!
