I love coming here although I find it a little annoying at times because it is a university. The services are great and people do a wonderful job and there are too many minds working on your case because you are seen by student doctors, who are academically very strong and then you are seen by actual doctors who have a whole lot of experience. I find this to be annoying at times because so many people come in to see you and bombard you with questions.

But in another way it is good because the student doctors have sound knowledge and they are much more serious about their work than the doctors who teach them.

All of them do a great job and I most certainly like going here.

My husband went there after he suffered some minor wounds here and there. Initially, they lent all ears to him and seemed totally interested in his case and took good care of him. But as days went by and they started having more people, the quality of care reduced and nurses hardly came to check on him. Even if they did, it looked more like a ritual than a job.

Eventually, when I spoke to them about it, instead of rectifying their mistake, they stared behaving rude to both of us. I have zero tolerance for such things and I discharged him the very same day and took him elsewhere, where they took adequate care of him.

Such a disappointment this hospital was!

I have never come across such rude and inattentive staff in my lifetime. I am bloody 55 and I have seen places where they take care of their patients like gold. But this place is nowhere near to any one of them.

This place is packed with inefficient and negligent staff who can leave their patients in the hallway and forget about it altogether. I was very ill and I was left outside in the hallway. I was feeling dazed and when I asked for help, a nurse who walked past me did not even take a second look to check if I was alright.

I am so damn angry at this hospital and I am thinking of filing a complaint against them.

I was at the University to give birth to my baby and I must say they gave me a very special and memorable experience for life. As it was my first delivery, I was very nervous and anxious about what would happen and how would things turn out to be.

To be honest I was really badly scared thinking how painful the whole process was going to be. And my anxiety is such that it can easily drive the other person nuts. But the nurses who took care of me kept calm at all times and was there throughout my delivery as strong pillars of moral support.

When finally my baby was out, he too was given volumes of care and every little aspect of the little one was taken care of. I could easily trust them and leave my baby boy in their hands in order to catch up on some sleep.

I was supported throughout and they made me feel really special. I appreciate their efforts and their love for me. thank you so very much!

The place is overcrowded and understaffed at the same time. People pour in from all the directions but the facility doesn’t have enough staff to take care of the needs of all patients. Of course, there are student doctors who know nothing about medical care and they are yet to get there but the senior doctors confidently hand over things to them so that they needn’t butt in for all the small issues.

So, finally, we are the ones who suffer because these students poke you with needles and at the end do not get anywhere close to getting you treated as well.

My sincere advise to people is to stay far away from this place and never make the mistake of coming here.

I have been to many other downtown hospitals but most of them offer much better treatment to their patients than what you get here. The staff working here lack the basic manners and some of them have very bad attitude problems.

They very seriously need to be briefed on how to behave with their patients and take care of them in a professional manner without holding onto any kind of grudges.

Unless things undergo a change, I am not coming here no matter how good the facilities are. They are of no use if you do not have doctors who can put them to use.

I am a frequent visitor here; thanks to a ton of medical issues that I have. To this date, I have not faced a single problem because of the staff here. The place undoubtedly has all the top notch medical facilities and the doctors are among the best ones in the country too.

Since they handle a lot many patients in a day, they are used to working quickly and efficiently at the same time. There is no room for any mistakes and I can assure you that you will be treated well and given extraordinary treatment by the staff here.

I hate the staff, particularly the attendants who work here. I seriously do not understand why they keep such a stiff face and have so much of attitude in them. The least they can do is smile at their patients. That can definitely make us feel so much better no matter how we are health wise. It is assurance that there are people to care for you and you are in safe hands.

But no, none of the stupid staff here will do all of this. They are in fact proficient in making you feel all sad and depressed.

I don’t care how good the facilities are here; I am not walking in there again to come face to face with such horrible staff.
