I fell during a soccer game and was rushed to the ER. Nurse Aidy was an absolute sweetheart and took excellent care of me. She stitched me up neatly and even gave me some friendly tips on how to get about without hurting myself too much. I can definitely vouch for the ER department.

Took the day off from work to make sure I made it to my appointment on time. The staff was very accommodating while I waited, but somehow, was unaware that my doctor would not be able to make it in that day. What started out as a pleasant experience sadly didn’t last.

At the risk of sounding too harsh, I would like to laugh at their advertising as a professional healthcare provider. After being misdiagnosed for pneumonia, I was brought it, asked to go through grueling paper work and tonnes of tests, after which the doctor told me I should get a second opinion. His worry and quite frankly, his urge to ask someone else frightened me. Lo and behold! It was not pneumonia after all. I would rather drive an hour to the next decent hospital than settle for sub-par treatment.

I’ve been coming to the Swedish American for years now. They have always been super nice and understanding. Becoming a regular here does have it’s perks, especially with regards to steering clear of the few rotten apples in the bunch that give the hospital a bad name!
I would suggest this place for all your medical needs with no hesitation. And this is coming from someone who has been struggling with complications related to diabetes for a good part of a decade now.
When you are respectful of their time and circumstance, they become quite flexible as well.

I am both agitated and pissed all at once! My wife had been suffering from really bad headaches for a while now. Since she had migraines as a child, we initially just brushed it aside. When it got unbearable and the usual over the counter drugs weren’t helping numb the pain anymore, we brought her here. After spending a good hour filling up forms and such, we were asked to wait another ten minutes for the doctor. Thinking ten minutes wasn’t so bad, we waited. After about 25 minutes of waiting, I went over to find out what was taking so long.

In this time, two men entered the doctor’s office and shut the door behind them. The assistant merely said the doctor would be with us shortly. When my wife asked if she could get a glass of water, the assistant merely told her to go find a water fountain “located in several convenient locations” about the hospital and that it was not in her job description to fetch her a glass of water.

When I threatened to take matters higher up the ladder, the doctor was finally called, and he reluctantly called off what turned out to be an impromptu second lunch (during work hours), even while the patient was waiting outside. He was both rude and discourteous towards my wife, almost as if he was pissed off that we foiled his little tea party! Dr. Nehwal is definitely the most unprofessional medical practitioner I have come across.

This place looks so drab, it’s no wonder the staff look so miserable here. He walls are a sickly yellow with pan peeling off and the couches are all old and oozing foam and cotton from cracks and crevices where it opened up over the years. Once time, after a minor operation, while I was still hopped up on medication, the flickering lights in the corridor outside my room actually freaked me out to the point that I needed to be calmed down!
I’ve been hearing “plans to renovate” for over a year and a half now and just really hope they can get the funding quick.
They have potential, but with it physically looking the way it does now, it would take a miracle to have cheery people walking in and out that door.

They have the most helpful attendants to help you!
Post-op, I struggled to move, not to mention the pain in going to the bathroom.
Nurse Daya was sweet and always at my aid.
She made sure I focused on getting better rather than fixate on the pain in the abdomen.
I give the surgeon and nurse Daya 5 stars!

Even though the reviews were not the best, I still thought I’d give Swedish American a try. Sad to have to agree with the countless poor reviews online. The only thing I can rave about is ample parking space. Both understaffed and incompetent help, I can’t tell which one worse! Never coming back here.
