Not sure how anyone could give them less then five stars after my experience. I should say I had a total hip replacement, scheduled in advance by one of the highest rated joint doctors in the country. This hospital has finished multiple time as being in the top 4% for this type of procedure and my doctor, Dr. Irving rates in the top 1%. The care I had here was the finest I have ever received at a hospital. In a day and age where many hospital look at you as a number and income, never once did I feel that way. Rather the opposite was felt, the nurses where concerned and incredible helpful, answering all sorts of questions and offering good advice. If you need orthopedics/ joint I'm guessing you be very hard pressed to find a better hospital possible in the world. Read the doctors ratings and the ratings from their peers, it's a big deal having this kind of procedure done, I did a lot of research and feel it paid off handsomely.
Worst experience in my life. Waited over 4 hours to be seen! The least they could do is have the decency to tell you how long the wait would be.
It was after 2, so all the walk-in clinics were closed, which is why I didn't leave. After the 4 hour mark, I asked to speak to a supervisor. The supervisor kept saying over and over again, how they don't have beds open. Again, she was missing my point. She never gave me a clear reason as to why I was waiting four hours, and why I wished someone would just told me the waiting time from the start. After trying to explain what I was complaining about, (took 10 minutes) she finally said she'll try to get a bed open. Meanwhile, I had a bad second degree burn on my hand and the women next to me looked like she was about to pass out. She had a high fever, and was in worse pain then I was. All we wanted was for someone to tell us how long we would be waiting, until we were actually seen. It should be our right to know.
The security guards were a joke. One was sleeping, and the other one was shopping for a house.
VERY UNHAPPY with my experience at Milford Hospital, and won't be going back.
I’m writing this review as I’m sitting in the waiting room. I asked the security guard if it were possible to have a place to lay down as I felt that I was going to pass out. He pointed at the double chairs in the waiting room and said, you can try that. Didnt realize this was a third world country. And btw I just made it to the double chairs before everything went blurry. Thanks again Milford Hospital. I should’ve taken the trip to St. Vincent’s where they haven’t sold their souls to Yale.
I have a fear of doctors that stems from an incident with a doctor at this hospital years ago, well again tonight i went to this hospital and explained in the very beginning of my visit this fear of doctors. I was in the room for less than 10 minutes and it ended with this doctor yelling at me telling me that i did not belong in an er. DONT go to this hospital. They are bad doctors.
I have always had great service here.I had a hernia operation here back in 1996 and a colonoscopy this past week and have had great service Here! The staff are fantastic and this is a very neat and clean hospital. The lobby is beautiful and luxurious.
