This has to be the best ER that I have visited so far. The ER was quick. They do not rush you, but things move in an orderly fashion. Despite there being a rush, my ER visit was concluded within two hours. It included registration, waiting time, the doctor consultation, x-ray, and then filling the script at the pharmacy. Everyone was helpful and did their job with a smile. I have never felt so happy about visiting an emergency room. I will not hesitate to return in case of an emergency

I am very distributed with the care that I got here. They just saw me, did not do any tests, no detailed consultation; just saw me, gave some OTC meds, and discharged me. Despite doing nothing, I was billed $436. There was no clear breakup of the bill items. Just said, “acute care services.” I am not sure what acute care these people are talking about. If just seeing you and prescribing OTC meds is acute care, then yes they gave me that; if not, then you are committing highway robbery. If this is what an ER does, then I would be more than happy to visit my GP’s clinic. At least I would be given high-quality care there. I do not plan to come back any time soon because I need good care and that is something which you people obviously cannot provide. Bunch of crooks!

Ended up visiting the ER a few days back after a severe backache rendered me almost incapacitated. I was welcomed and made comfortable the moment I walked in. The nursing staff is excellent at this hospital. They were very professional and competent. So are the doctors. I was seen by an outstanding doctor who was very professional and highly competent. After hearing me out, she diagnosed my problem as a bad muscle sprain, but to be sure, she manually evaluated the spot and ordered an x-ray to rule out fractures. The x-ray was fine, and she proceeded to give me muscle relaxers and also gave tips on how to prevent a recurrence. This was not something that was expected. Thank you for such an incredible hospital experience.

This was my first visit, and I am highly impressed. I did not have to wait for too long when I came here, maybe 15 minutes (which is nothing when you compare it with UCLA where wait times are ridiculous). The doctor was beside me in minutes. He saw my chart, asked relevant questions, heard me out, and then ordered tests. Once the results were out, he made the appropriate diagnosis and prescribed the necessary treatment. My total time in the ER – 3hrs. The doctor also gave an aftercare plan! Definitely coming back
