Dr. Lin, you rock. The doctor is patient friendly and did not rush through. The procedure was explained in great detail. Thanks to Dr. Lin, I was calm and relaxed before the procedure, and the procedure went off pretty well. The only problem with the visit was the way to the GI Dept. I had to walk in circles for nearly 20 minutes before a nurse helped me to the GI department. The parking was horrendous, and it took another half-an-hour to find a spot. However, Dr. Lin’s skills and mannerisms overcame all these issues.

Dr. Wu is remarkable. He is a magician. I was under his care about a month back, and he helped in suturing a pretty big wound, around 10” on my waist. One month down, I am not able to see the sutures or scars and can only know it if I touch the area. The staff is also excellent and very professional. I would even say that they are 1000 times better than the idiots down at CMH.

I am not sure about others, but there are certain things which need rectification if the center has to gain good reviews. First off, the location of this facility is ludicrous. Nobody sets up a hospital in residential areas. It is a strict no-no. The first clue about the disorganized facility was the parking or should one say lack of it. The parking lot has been set up across the street, and there is only a flashing light system to help cross the road. One has to pray to God that the drivers see the light and slow down their vehicle and stop.

I had gone there for a blood draw, and the phlebotomist was a newbie. She did not have any clue on how to draw blood, at least I thought. She poked the needle in and then started moving the needle around in hopes of drawing blood. Eventually, I had to ask her to remove the needle as it was causing me discomfort. She had left me with a large bruise on my right hand. Finally, another nurse came and drew blood in a jiffy without leaving any mark.

If they can correct the parking mess and the get qualified people in, then this hospital has in it to become the best in the state and even the country.
