No doubt one of the best hospitals on this side of the woods. The trauma team, the ortho guys, nurses, CNAs, and other doctors were great. They saved my life. I am eternally grateful to them. I would recommend this wonderful hospital to everyone I know because they treat patients as a human being and not as some number or a guinea pig for the residents. Thank you for everything.

The waiting time at this hospital is beyond comparison. Once I came to the ER and had to wait for nearly five hours before being seen. Yesterday, I took my father to the radiology and ended up waiting for almost four hours before a nurse came to see us and take him in. It did not matter to these idiots that my father was in severe pain!

I had to visit this hospital way back in February 2019. I had some movement issues and scheduled an appointment with Dr. Managin of Neurology. An exceptional doctor who listens to patients and then makes a diagnosis. No rushing through. Willing to answer questions. Very satisfied with the appointment! The staff is also excellent and very helpful. Thanks

Cannot believe it. I came to the hospital ER past Friday at 8:00 pm and did not see a doctor till 6:00 am on Saturday. I had to spend time in the smallest ER room ever with hardly any space to place an additional chair. To top it all, I was seen by a resident, not even an actual doctor. Horrible experience!!!!

This review is long overdue. I was at this place in June 2016 for surgery and a three-day stay. My doctor, surgeon, and nurses were friendly, very professional, highly knowledgeable, and very attentive. They were polite and went out of their way to ensure that I was comfortable during the stay. The food service person was also wonderful, always had a song on his lips. Ultimately, thanks to the wonderful care, I recovered very quickly and as of this date do not have restrictions of any sort.

The only blip in this otherwise great experience was the room where I was placed. It was cramped, and I got a stuffy feeling. If one ignores that, then this was an outstanding experience
