My wife went to the emergency room with symptoms of a kidney stone, I met her there after she was already there. Nurses and staff were attentive at first, hooks up IVs, takes her for CT scan etc. Then nothing. No nurses stopping by to keep us updated. Hours start to go by and still nothing. Mind you, in between I stop by the nurses desk and ask for an update. They said they would check. I also asked for a remote for the TV and they said they would check on that as well. Meanwhile the channels would flip seemingly on its own as someone "next door" would be flipping through. Still nothing. Long story short we spent a total of 5 hours in emergency and the scan and samples all came back negative for a kidney stone. The nurse mentioned to us that she asked the attending Dr. at least 4 times to check in with us so we can go and when the Dr. finally arrived, it was short and sweet with no explanation of what took her so long. The hospital didn't seem busy and people were coming and going in the beds next to us but we were seemingly forgotten. Terrible experience other than the initial response.
I had same day surgery for my knee. From the beginning starting with registration to discharge what amazing staff. I met everyone who was going to care for me from the PAC nurses and Doctors. I really can't say enough of good stuff about this department. Keep up the great work. You definitely deserve to hear the good that you do. ❤❤👍👍👍
Excellent experience. Nurses are so nice,food above expectations for hospital. My new born son get perfect 3 days. Much better than Columbia Hospital in NYC.
I wish I can give this hospital 1/2 star, not one full.
I was there on Dec. 31st at 9 am the emergency room was empty, the ambulance brought me there after I have fall and broke my ankle. They took an x-ray with such patience like the place was full and never touch my leg, except to put on a wrap. Gave me a phone number for Dr. Amid Sood, who I never have a change to speak with and send me home.
After trying unsuccessfully to set an appointment with that doctor, I decided to visit another orthopedic and when he saw my leg he explain to me that the hospital did a horrendous job, that they was suppose to straight out my left and operate the broken bone next day. Now my leg is too swollen and he can not operate until it's going down, and I have to suffer another painful moment when he have to line up my bones. Terrible experience I will NEVER RECOMMEND THAT PLACE.

DO NOT GO HERE ! A loved one had major abdomal surgery, catheter was taken out the next morning with his request not to, he was still in severe pain and could barely move. They decided to put it back in, took 3 times, was still in discomfort from it in the first place so that didn't help especially since it NEVER should have been taken out. Had a 101+ fever for 3 days and complained of his stomach being hard & bloated & no appetite. No body thought to look into the fever or his stomach issue any further for those 3 days, but instead just shoved a tube into his stomach to drain what was only liquid since he couldn't eat, after 2 days of that, decided to do a catscan, turned out he had an infection inside, so now another tube surgically inserted into him to drain it, mind you the doctor who performed the surgery was ready to release him prior to this being realized, yes in spite of his high fever etc., wanted him out the door. Who doesn't know a high fever indicates something is wrong ? Thank God he wasn't the only one to have to sign off on his release. No one had checked the incision etc. for the first few days after surgery, had they done that they would have seen that one was thing was leaking into the other, in turn causing the infection. A ten day stay turned into 3 weeks because of the lack of care. I've shared this experience with a few people, one who had a family member sue and win, the other with a misdiagnosed family member who ended up passing away, lawsuit also filed by family. So many other things went wrong and were done wrong here, too many to mention. Patient was put through so much that was un-necessary had they done things right the first time. It's sad that people's lives are in their hands and they take it so lightly. The hospital and how this was handled gets 0 stars, reason for the 2, there was ONE nurse out of the many, that showed care and compassion, would call doctors on his behalf for whatever the concern or issue was and got results immediately, the others not so much. I don't like having to give this negative review but felt because of all that went wrong here I felt it necessary, if it helps only 1 person, could be a life saved.
