I am not quite sure about the other departments of this hospital, but I would never recommend one to deliver their baby here. My daughter in law gave birth to my grandson here and I was pained to see both of them being neglected royally by the nurses of this hospitals; the ones who were supposed to be actually taking care of them in an excellent manner.

They have a big time attitude problem and I simply could not stand them because of that. I could see that the entire thing was no less than a nightmare for my poor daughter in law but she definitely had the courage to put up with all the shit just for her baby.

So, please, do not make the mistake of delivering your baby here.

Filthy place filled with awful people!!! I don’t know how this facility is even called a hospital and is still open to patients for treatment. There is some kind of foul play in it given the bad condition of the hospital and the people who work for them.

Even if this hospital is the only choice I am ever left, I am not making the mistake of coming here again. The place is a complete mess and I would prefer dying in peace than coming here for horrible treatment.

I definitely do understand where these awful reviews come from! That pathetic is the condition of the place!

The place is understaffed; there is hardly anybody to attend to or take care of the patients. And because they are understaffed, the maintenance of the place is poor and it looks all dilapidated and run down and as if it has never been cleaned in ages.

Nobody is available to check on the patients or help them with the basic stuff. My heart goes out to the people admitted here for there is no ray of hope for things to improve.

My wife had a high fever and nothing we tried at home was helpful in bringing it down. Since it was an emergency situation, I called the ER here before we drove in and true to their word, they did not make us wait for more than 20 minutes.

The triage was done and my wife was made to lie down on a bed so that she would feel comfortable and get some rest before the doctor would take a look at her. That day I realized that ER is not an easy place to be especially for the ones who take their work sincerely.

The doctor who came in was super duper efficient in his work and got things done quickly. He ordered for a scan and some blood work so that he could be sure of what was actually wrong with my wife.

I knew I could trust them with her life and they did more than what I expected them to do.

I was here to get a CAT scan done and I had an impressive experience during the same. There was a nurse who never left my side during and after the procedure. She was assigned to me and till I walked out of the place, she made sure that I was well taken care of.

Even the techies who performed the scan were two wonderful boys. I do not recall any of their names but the way they made me feel comfortable and good is something I can never forget. They were knowledgeable but were totally alright with my ignorance. Such down to earth people I tell you!!

It was great being here……….

I don’t like this place and I stay as far as possible from this place because I have never got a good feeling here. Two of my family members passed away here; I know it could be a sheer coincidence but that has made me resent the place.

I do not get positive vibes here. I am not blaming it completely on the staff but of course they do get a major credit too for my resentment. I have interacted with many others who were admitted or treated here and none of them seemed to have a good opinion.

That has made me think if the good reviews that I saw and read about them are doctored. I am not saying it is but it could be.

Whatever it is, I hate this place and keep myself faaaaaaarrrrrr from it.
