My husband was travelling for work and like many a times, I too tagged along with him this time. My sole aim for this trip was to relax and get some time for myself. But, all of a sudden my husband fell sick and he had this strange pain on one side of his abdomen. Initially, we thought it could be a muscle stretch but when the pain got unbearable, I knew he had to be taken to a hospital.

I got him to trinitas and the doctors here discovered the presence of kidney stones and they announced that he required immediate surgery. I was even told that he had a very minor infection because of the stones. They performed the procedure at the earliest and my husband was admitted there for a week. I loved the way they took care of him. They are wonderful people with extraordinary skills.

They also respond well to you and were never mean. I am a very anxious person and I tend to shoot many questions because of my anxiety. But the doctors took in the right stride and I could approach them without any fear.

Thank you all the staff of Trinitas Regional Medical centre for taking good care of my husband!

I never had a good opinion about this hospital and an article that I read last year proved the same. Trinitas was awarded a D grade and I hope all of you know that D is the lowest grade ever.

I have been here multiple times and not even once have I had a good experience. I don’t want to get into the details because if I start describing the details, this post would run into pages. But I want to stress on the point that the hospital is a very bad hospital.

I would advise that one shouldn’t come here if one can help it!! If there is no other choice, then maybe yes but never otherwise!!

I have been living in Elizabeth for more than 20 years now and Trinitas was always my go to place for any kind of medical issues. I have mainly used their ER services and let me tell you they were the best! But things have changed drastically in the recent past.

In the last one year, whenever I visited this hospital, I have always faced major issues. And with my visit to this place 3 days back, I decided that it would be my last visit to this hospital. I went here because of a sprained arm but I was treated in a very inhuman manner. My arm was swollen and absolutely no care was given to even examine the condition of my arm.

I hate being treated like shit and I am never gonna tolerate it again. So, it is my firm decision not to walk in here ever!

I had heard many bad things about trinitas but there came a day when I had no choice other than to get inside this place. My expectations from this hospital was nil and I cursed my fate since it brought me here.

But the way I was taken care of proved things wrong. The staff of this hospital make you feel all safe and comfortable. They were extremely well behaved and knew how to take good care of their patients.

I would highly recommend this place; there is no doubt about it.

I do not wish to jot down the details of my bad experiences at this hospital because I hate talking over and over again about how badly I was treated here. It kinda spoils my mood and I don’t want that now!

But if you ask me, I would say this place should have been shut down like long time ago. I have had the worst and intimidating experience of my life in that facility and I would never want a person to go through all that crap.

I beg all of you not to go into that facility for anything. DON’T!

I would have given them a 0 star if I could rate them. How on earth can a hospital and medical staff be so damn horrible!!! The nurses and the staff are uncouth people who absolutely do not have any manners!! I would have put up with their behavior had they been efficient in their work. But that is not the case either.

They get paid and do not do anything in return for their patients. I had brought in my dad here and every time I had to run behind one nurse or the other so that he would be taken care of. Once when he was in complete pain, I asked the nurse for help and she promised she would get medicines for him but that bitch never returned.

I earnestly hope the place gets shut down! Even though they are open now, it is not of any help! You step in here and agony will fill you up.
