The techs and nurses do not have the minimum courtesy of introducing themselves while entering the room. They just barge in and start doing their jobs. Even patients have privacy. I think St. Vincent’s would do a world of good to its patrons if it introduces a course of etiquette for its entire staff. They sorely need it.

One helluva hospital is St. Vincent’s. They have very caring and attentive staff who are always ready to help others. The hospital is spotless. My children were born here, and so were my niece and nephew. Our family is grateful to all those people who have treated us until now. All of you would be in our prayers

I might have come here maybe 10 to 15 times, and I am yet to come across any deficiency in service. The nurses and doctors are highly knowledgeable, very caring, and compassionate. They are very thorough with their work. They also have great bedside manners. I am really happy with the services that I have got over the years at St. Vincent’s.

St. Vincent Medical Center let us down. Our daughter came here a few days back with high fever and issues with breathing. She was made to wait for nearly four hours. Once her turn came, a PA took a swab from her nose and went ahead and administered Tylenol. The fever never actually went down, and we took her to another hospital where it was diagnosed that she was suffering from pneumonia and lack of proper treatment had made it worse. We are so pissed. The PA at St. Vincent's did absolutely nothing to evaluate and treat my daughter. For him, it was another case of flu. Thank God we did not go there for any other problem. He might treat heart attack as simple indigestion and end up giving antacids. Avoid this hospital if you and your loved one want to survive.

The only issue that I can see at this hospital is the parking. It can be very tricky. I ended up parking my car at the roof. One can see a packed lobby when they walk into the hospital; however there is always flow of people. The information booth has two to three people who are there to help you. The registration was completed in a jiffy, and the entire procedure went off smoothly. The whole hospital experience was pleasant.
