feedback about Maimonides Medical Center
Absolutely amazing treatment. From the moment we walked in- from the intake person, the Doctors, nurses, custodians and security guards- everyone was super professional, attentive and empathetic. I felt so taken care of myself and watched how intentionally they interacted and took care of every person in there. This is a well organized ER and almost doesn’t feel like an ER - the staff are all super cool and positive and, the atmosphere has really positive energy and even lightness! although of course this is a place where people are dealing with real moments in life- we watched people walk out feeling peaceful.
State-of-the-art facilities and rigorously trained staff. The premises are in good shape considering the hospital's high volume of patients. It is worth observing, however, that the lobby's staff are unsupervised and therefore take to holding loud, lengthy conversations across the room to one another, which proves stressful to prospective patients or relatives anxiously awaiting in-taken patients.
Worst hospital ever! Over 24 hours in the ER. No doctors nor nurses are ever seen. Horrible conditions. They could care less about their patients! It was absolutely the worst experience in my life! Nobody gives you the time of day and it is so very unprofessional! I will never go back here.
There are fewer and fewer choices of hospital in Brooklyn due to closure or consolidation. Having tried all of them for various reasons, I can honestly say Maimonides is the best. They have a great attention to detail and a whole host of really good doctors associated with the hospital who are on call to come and consult about your condition. It is one of the best hospitals in the whole of the US as well for the treatment of heart conditions, which is what I have. Their cardiac ICU is amazing. The only downside is the emergency room is usually full to overflowing, and getting a bed / room if you have to be admitted can be a really long wait. But with such a large catchment area with so many elderly people to care for, this is understandable. I have never had cause to complain about any of their bills or report them to the insurance company for inappropriate charges. Everyone is very professional and takes pride in their work. Weekends can be a bit weird because it is an Orthodox hospital, so if you go in on a Friday, don't expect anything to get done until Monday afternoon at the earliest. But a hospital is a place to rest and be cared for, so while it is not as nice as being in your own home, be a patient patient and do what has to be done to get better. All of my family use this hospital as well, it is so much better than Lutheran or Methodist, so if you have a choice, look for Maimonides doctors and get any procedures done at the hospital.
My father was take to MMC over packed ER with a heart attack. He waited 36 hours to get a bed on the Cardiology floor.. The first 24 hours in the ER, he was NEVER hooked up to a Cardiac Monitor!!!! They hooked him up the next morning, when they were able to free up a monitor from another patient.. UNREAL!!!! I found the staff, from nurses to physicians rude and disrespectful to patients. STAY AWAY!! Transfer to a Manhattan hospital as soon as they stabilize you!!!
