Hands down Paulding is the best hospital in the region. The ER is super quick, and we can get an appointment on time, and we are also seen by the doctors pretty fast. There was a wait time, but it did not exceed 10 minutes. I was admitted to the floor due to dehydration and the presence of kidney stones. The staff in the ER, as well as other floors, are courteous and extremely nice. The cafe also has a very good selection of budget-friendly breakfast options. I am glad that I sought treatment here. Highly recommended

I am still in shock after what I went through at Paulding Hospital. Since this hospital was near to my home, I decided to visit the hospital after some unexpected complications to my Roux-En-Y surgery done at a much better and more competent hospital. The ER doctor had no clue about what Roux-En-Y was, and he actually googled it in front of me to know what it is. He read the whole thing and then asked me if the whole procedure was reversible. Yes, dumbo, it is reversible. The fun did not end there. The assisting nurse had a horrid time in pronouncing the name of the surgery and was amazed when I said the name without any problem. The fun part stretched a little bit, and I had to ask the doctor to prescribe some fluids and a CT scan. The ER doctor just nodded in agreement. The idiot also pushed my stomach hard and asked if it hurt badly…yes, you fu&^%ng SOB, it hurts because I had just had surgery five days ago. Even a bruise takes more than a week to heal. The whole picture was complete when the billing staff came up with a $2,500 bill for “treatment of complications from “Rou-Y” procedure.” I got myself discharged and had my friend drive me down to the original hospital for treatment.

You know a hospital is best when your kid says they love it here. My daughter had a temperature, and we had got her here. The moment she entered the hospital, she liked the hospital and said in her sweet voice, “Ya, I like this one.” The doctor was also great and gave appropriate treatment. We were discharged after spending a couple of hours. The office was squeaky clean, which was an added advantage. We appreciate and loved the time we spent at this place. Keep up the good work folks
