This is one hospital that will make you sick and depressing, not the other way round. The ED is a pathetic place…very depressing and manned by some of the worst nurses and doctors that one can find. They are least bothered about treating patients.

Barring a few, almost all of the nurses were busy with their things. So what if the ER is getting overcrowded or if a person’s symptoms are flaring up or a man with bleeding arm comes in….it’s their problem, not ours.

The doctors were no less. They cared even less for the patient and were more interested in ratcheting up the numbers rather than providing personalized care. The ER room was filthy, and it seemed like they were cleaned ages ago.

All in all, a disgusting place to seek care. I would not repeat the mistake and seek care here

I do not know about others, but WMC has treated us well. My grandpa was admitted to the ICU, and the care which he got here was exceptional. The nurses and the doctors were outstanding when it came to treating him. Every single need of his was taken care of. The doctors also kept us updated about his progress.

Thanks to the wonderful treatment, he was back on his feet within a week, and by the end of the month, he was his usual self; something which we could not imagine a month back. Thank you, everyone, for taking exceptional care of my grandpa

The staff who mans the Neuro ICU are amazing people. My wife was admitted here, and the care which Rach got was amazing. She was in a pretty bad condition, but thanks to the wonderful and untiring efforts of the doctors and nurses, Rach began recovering very quickly and soon was shifted to the floor and then discharged.

Would highly recommend this hospital, especially, the Neuro ICU to all those in need.

I had a wonderful experience while I was in the ER a few days back. The nurses and doctors who saw me were terrific people. The doctor was not rushed and heard me out completely, ordered tests and imaging and when these came back, came back to explain it and make sure that I understood what was being said.

Truly appreciate the efforts of the doctor and the staff to provide proper care
