My five year old son broke his nose when he fell flat on his face while playing outside with his friends. I rushed him here and the medical team was immediately there to assist us. They were kind and friendly to my son and took good care of him. It took them sometime to bring his pain under control and till then my son was literally getting on their nerves. But they were patient enough and did not get pissed off at him.

I salute their compassion, kindness and patience.

I accidentally stepped on a nail and it pierced through my feet real bad leaving me bleeding heavily. I was brought in here by a friend of mine and the ER team took me in as soon as they could. Meanwhile, they gave me a big piece of cotton with antiseptic so that I could deal with the bleeding for sometime before they could come to my rescue.

They called me in soon and took the nail out, gave me an injection (I still dunno for what) and were very helpful in alleviating my pain. They could not make it vanish but they made it bearable at least.

I wish I could have had a faster experience, given the intensity of the pain but it was definitely a positive experience when compared to many other ERs.

My daughter fell off her bicycle and she had wounds on her arms, her knees, her legs and even her face. I guess she was over speeding and suddenly she lost her balance, else it wouldn’t have been so bad.

The doctor who was in charge of the ER that day did a great job treating her. My daughter is scared of injections but this guy made it simpler for her and I was surprised to see that she didn’t cry this time at all.

The nurses did a good job too and all of them treated her as if they have known her for ages. A big THANK YOU for being so kind and loving to my princess.

I am heavily allergic to peanuts and by mistake I ate a few Snickers because I was feeling very hungry and there was nothing edible in the refrigerator. Only after I finished eating them and they started giving me some very severe allergic reactions, I realized my blunder. But it was too late by then.

I called up a friend and asked her to help me out to get out of this soup. She was the one who brought me here and by the time I was here, I had a very bad swelling in my tongue and I could hardly talk.

My friend clearly explained my situation to them and we were expecting that I would be taken in immediately but on the contrary, we were asked to wait. I was shocked to hear that and feared for my life. 10 more minutes and I started to sweat profusely and had difficulty breathing.

I passed out and that’s when I received some attention from the medical staff over there. They managed to save my life but their carelessness made me ponder if I would make it that day.

I would never prefer to go to a hospital filled with such negligent staff.

All they think about is money. Period!

They are all sweet and nice to you when they bill you or want donations from you. When you in turn ask for their help with anything, you get to see their true colors.

They have the worst customer service ever and they do everything possible to fleece money from their patients. It doesn’t matter if you have insurance or if your insurance will pay for it, these cheats don’t leave any stone unturned to take cash from you.

I sincerely recommend you to ditch this place and find a better option. I am yet to do that. So, if anyone of you have any suggestions regarding the same, please let me know!

Valley View is way too expensive and is not meant at all for a common man. I wouldn’t have mind paying them so much if they had some good facilities and adequate medical care to offer. But they are a big zero in that as well.

The nurses working here have so much of attitude and they behave as if they have landed straight from the heaven. The staff working here look unhappy with the management and that clearly reflects in the way they treat their patients.

The level of care they provide doesn’t even up to the charges they press in your hospital bill. This is my personal opinion about the place but if someone feels the place is worth paying a visit, it is totally up to them.

This place is an utter failure and is for sure on its way to self destruction because of mismanagement of things here. The management doesn’t think from a patient’s standpoint and that is their biggest mistake.
They are too focused on making money and that is very quickly leading to their downfall.

Please stay away for your own well being
