My PCP told me that it was important I visit the Swedish Medical Center in Cherry Hil, as my symptoms were worsening, and he needed a reconfirmation of the diagnosis that he made. No evil intentions in suggesting this place, just that my insurance has this dump in their coverage.

I visited this hospital, and all I can say is that it was a waste of time and money. The doctor who saw me was in a pretty foul mood and did not have the courtesy of treating me as a patient. He was rude and shouted at me when I asked him certain questions. Sorry dickhead, it is none of my concern that you have a bad day. If things were really bad, you should have taken a day off. The nurse got my problem, but this pompous a** did not. He was of no help. Worst emergency room. Thanks to this dickhead, I got no care but huge medical bills.

Swedish at Cherry Hill is one helluva medical center. It is wonderful and is staffed by some of the most amazing people that you could ever come across. I had the option of going to Eastside but did not take it because that place sucks. Seeking care at Swedish is a big relief. Here you can get quality care. At other places, it is just money, honey. The wonderful staff aided me in delivering my first child here. God Bless You All

Last year was horrible for me. I had a severe ear infection which rendered me deaf in both ears and forced me to have ear surgeries. I decided to seek care at Swedish, and I am glad that I did. I was operated upon by one of the best ENT in the entire world – Douglas D. Backous, MD. He knew what the issue was and what was supposed to be done. No fishing around and no unnecessary tests. Thanks to him, my hearing is the best that it has ever been. His staff is also good. They are very friendly. They made sure that all the nervousness that I had before the surgery was resolved. Thank you, guys!

I had to undergo a same-day surgery here. I was well prepared and had my list of allergies and medicines in hand. I was checked-in on time. The pre-op nurses were ready for me when I reached there. Vitals taken, I was brought back to the OR quickly. The nurse was happy that there was no need to spend time on knowing the allergies and meds that I am taking. The surgery was a success. Recovery was smooth, and before long, I was on my way home. I will not hesitate to return if the required
