Do not go oto Wyckoff heights hospital.
It lacks every necessary skill a hospital requires to run successfully which explains why it is so Unsuccessful.
It’s been around for so many years I just don’t understand why they can’t spend some money into sprucing up the place.
That way the patietns would feel more comfortable coming here.
Everyone is so slow. Most of them are super old too.
So if you need results from a lab it’ll take you 5 hours instead of 1-2 hours in normal hospitals. Ugh.

One of the few hospitals I can rely on. Was brought her 2 years ago after falling from a flight of stairs. My mother thought I was dead. Thankful to the doctors at Wyckoff heights hospital for not giving up on me and trying everything to help my healing process speed up. Very grateful to all of the doctors and nurses here. Forever.

Very dangerous place. Took a while to think about this review because I needed to word it perfectly. Beware is the first thing I’d say because they make students experiment on you. You’re basically the guinea pigs that are thrown at the student doctors.

One of the surgeons screwed up during the surgery and almost damaged a nerve of mine permanently. I obviously sued and got the compensation from the hospital but found out the student surgeon was STILL working there.

Ugh. Not only is this shit hole of a hospital dangerous in terms of medical safety but also physical safety. It’s located in a weird location without too many houses. Sketchy for sure and there are always thugs walking in the hospital lobby.

A lot of scope for improvement at Wyckoff. Someone should take the responsibility of renovating it and changing the organizational system. But.. needs funding. Anyone reading this willing to help, go on.

I have survived cancer twice and had 5 surgeries in the past 4.5 years alone so believe me when I say this, the service at Wyckoff is shitty. I had no intentions of going there and I normally go to NYU. I always feel it’s easier to go to a university hospital because there isn’t much of a wait and there’s always plenty people to give you attention. The one thing that was lacking at this hospital funnily enough. Had a numb chest ache throughout the day but after work when I was showering I suddenly felt very giddy and had a loss of balance.

I dialed 911 immeidately and the EMT showed up in a jiff. BTW- thanks to the EMT that dealt with me, I was arguing with them a little about taking me to NYU. But after inspecting my symptoms they thought it would be best to go someplace nearby. Sadly that near place was Wyckoff Heights and I’d never even heard of it before. Got here, they took me off the ambulance and while I was on the stretcher they signed me off to the nurses. They looked at me and nothing.. no smile, no greeting, no introduction.

Just wheeled me to a more quiet area right in front of the emergency rooms and dumped me there. I was in the dark for more than 15 minutes before the doctors came in. Was very strange. My loss of balance was morphing into consciousness but I managed to stay awake to listen to what the doctor had to say. And weirdly enough they had decided on immediate surgery and didn’t feel the need to explain it further to me. Was so angry!!!!

Hospital is garbage you can literally go up to anyone in Brooklyn and ask them that and they will tell you that Wyckoff is a shit hospital. It’s mostly for people like me without any money or insurance but still a decent place to have a date Even though it’s garbage when I was about 5-6 I remember two doctors at Wyckoff saving my father’s life. He got into a fist fight that nearly took his face off but thanks to those two doctors he was fine in 2-3 weeks. If you expect 100% cleanliness and posh things then this is not your hospital. But good people work here.

I think it’s strange that most people go on rating restaurants and bars instead of hospitals.. People I tell you. Now even though this hospital has it’s issues like wrong medical bills, messing up credentials, burned out staff who could use a few hours of sleep.. I always have a good time here.

Only been to orthopedic department at Wyckoff- gotta say it was a pleasant experience. You feel 10x more confident when your doctor is well learned and has good people skills. My orthopedic surgeon was the most charming person I’d ever met. And thanks to that whatever fright I had about the surgery flew out the window the minute he started speaking. People skills can get you anywhere in the medical field .
