I broke my tibia last Wednesday and had to rush to the ER at 3 pm. The care which I got here was fantastic. Within 10 minutes of being taken in, I was taken back to the room and had nearly 10 people providing care. It was a well-oiled machine. Everything went smoothly – vitals were taken, x-rays ordered, appropriate diagnosis and treatment, medicine/prescription, and insurance. Things were crazy out there, but I would call it organized chaos. The super-efficient staff had me all wrapped up, gave the prescription, and I was out of the hospital by 5 pm.

These wonderful folks called me the next day and set up an appointment for Monday. I visit the hospital; a surgery is fixed and completed on Tuesday. Thoroughly impressed by what I saw and experienced here.

Had to make a quick detour to the ER after I developed sudden chest pain. The staff acted quickly. I was given some meds, which resulted in instant resolution of the pain. I would fall at their feet for getting to know what was in the cocktail. Thankfully, the whole episode was a gastrointestinal issue and not cardiac. Better safe than be sorry. I hate when illness strikes in the dead of night. So glad that I have this hospital nearby to attend to my ailments. I have had issues with this hospital in the past, but this visit was wonderful. Most importantly, they made me feel better, and that is enough for me.

Completely pissed off!!! The care was good, but what happened after the care was disgusting.

My wife and kids were visiting her parents here when she fell ill and had to visit the ER. They took her in and gave appropriate treatment, and after a few hours, she was back to normal. That was when the guard decided to step in. At 1:00 AM, he bundled everybody into the car and made them go back. 1:00 AM, a sick lady and two kids aged 3 and 5…

The road was very dark and winding, construction was going on, and there were no pharmacies that were open at such hours. What harm would have these three people done if they waited until daybreak? Thankfully, nothing happened, but the credit for that goes to my wife and kids who were brave enough to go back at such odd hours. I am planning to contact the management and lodge a formal complaint

Scumbags!!!! Cheaters!!!! First-grade liars!!!!

That is how I would grade these people. My son was sick, and unfortunately, my husband and I were out of the state. We were in Maine for some official work when my mother called and told that they were at the ER with my son. My husband immediately called up the hospital and informed them about the insurance and said we would pay them in full. He asked them to send him the bill for immediate payment.

A few hours later, we get a call from my mother who said that the hospital is pressurizing her to pay the money stating that my husband asked to collect it from her, failing which the treatment would not be continued. We were shocked. We never said that we would not pay the money; all we wanted was the bill. I know they have a reputation of cheating which was why my husband asked for the bill. We asked them to get out of the ER and transferred some money.

I was a visitor, visiting my sister who was here to deliver my niece/nephew. What I LOVED the most about this hospital was the outside patio on the L&D floor. Beautiful! I spent an entire day waiting for the newborn to arrive without getting bored.
