Terrible hospital! Been there twice in the past six months and I will never go there again after this second time. First time, I went for a chronic migraine. Was there for 8 hours. Took 6 hours before I even saw a doctor! All they gave me was a muscle relaxant and it did not help. Nurse was rude when I tried to tell her that these chronic headaches/migraines had been going on for about a year, she replied with "I don't care about your history. I just want to know what the problem is today". Also, they are SO disorganized there. They asked me to do a urine sample 3 times because they kept "losing them". Such a waste of a day. Second time I was there (just recently), I waited to see a doctor for about only 2 hours this time for something depression related (I am still getting the chronic headaches along which have resulted in me getting really depressed because of how bad it's affecting me physically). He couldn't have even spent 5 minutes with me and basically told me that all my problems are non-existent and are all in my head. Nice. Why is he even allowed to be an emergency doctor in the psychiatric field? He obviously does not know anything about how to talk to patients with mental illness. It's gross! He's just another podunk doctor that doesn't know what he's talking about! I can't remember his name. Otherwise, I would have put it down here.
Do not go to this hospital. It's even messier than it was before the renovated and added the new emergency wing.

Took my father in law into emergency. He had to stay over night in the overflow section as no emerg beds available. Disgraceful!
Staff were excellent, care was good. Frequent flyers such as subtance users, drugs and thugs get fast tracked because of lack of foresight and management in the triage. There needs to be a separate section for the people that are constantly using the system due to drugs and other related issues. We pay over 200k yes 200K in taxes as a family of 2 and get bottom of the barreltriage. I can sadly say that SMH is well on its way to 3rd world public hospital status. The nurses and doctors and paramedics are amazing and doing an amazing job under horrific social demographic curcumstamces. The system must be fixed. Respectable citizens should not have to be subjected to a care facility that feels like a detention centre. We are not a socialist economy or a communistic society. Lets get what we rightly deserve and ensure there is a separate system of triage for the drugs and thugs and any bleeding hearts who disagree can vote with their feet and chose to be treated at these centres. The true picture on the state of the system and the chronic users will surely be revealed when there is transparency. Surrey is building more homes with record breaking permits for building high density condos and SMH has no room to accommodate current demand. Why are the extra millions of $$$ from building permits not going directly to build a centre to help the thugs and drug users get treatment so that the rest of the community can have a respectable place to get quality care in a non demeaning atmosphere.

Horrible hospital. Nurses treat you like animals. It's a great hospital for people from India, for a chunk of their staff are from there. One even referred me to a surgeon who failed my surgery. All the times I've gone to the emergency it's been horrible experience. You wait for so long and your flushed out the door.

This hospital has gotta be housing the worst doctors on planet earth. Why should breast cancer patients wait 3/5months to be told it's too late to start fertility treatments. Had everyone not kept saying that's what you'll discuss with the oncologist, it wouldn't have been too late cause the system only lets you see oncologist a week before chemo!!! These are the most incompetent doctors I've ever met. Organization is non existent. Why should an oncologist be the last a cancer patient sees. It makes no sense. How many new lives have you stolen from women who would otherwise have had babies of their own. No one takes ownership for anything. There isn't communication between the doctors, tests are repeated numerous times. This is a hefty cost to tax payers. Those off campus doc offices host some of the worst medical assistants I've ever met. Girl, you're not a nurse nor are you the doctor I've called for a doc, don't answer questions you aren't educated enough to stomach. I'm so frustrated with these doctors, medical assistants, technologists who notice abnormalities but choose not to make it "their problem"! I'm sick and tired of the insensitivity, lack of compassion and most of all lack of using asceptic techniques. Doc wash your hands before you touch me and put on those blip nitrile gloves, lady don't handle the condom with your hands then insert the probe in my vajayjay (real word not allowed, for goodness sake we're rating a hospital, c'mon now!!!) for an ultra sound. I hate this universal health care blip. Lack of competition between doctors breeds Surrey Memorial Hospital...The Fraser Health Care system....thus a lack of drive, a lack of ownership, a lack of enthusiasm, lazy freaking doctors....customer service lacking. WTF! I'm already dead. Not because my condition is serious but because it's being handled by a chaotic people and system.

Waited 5 hours in emergency when it was empty, all they did in that 5 hours is ask for my name. Ended up leaving with no help. Rather get better or die on my own than wait all day for sht service.

Surrey memorial is a horrible horrible place .... my father went after he had a major stroke which left him speechless .... they had to tie his one working arm down because he kept pulling out his tubes which is common ... but they had him in such a position with his arm all twisted .... and i kept asking the nurse to move it in a more comfortable postion and she just laughed at me ... he also passed away randomly as soon as he seemingly was getting better ..i'm suspicious that they may have given him extra medication ...... he looked like he was suffering and i couldn't do anything to prevent it ... now another relative is in this zoo after having a heart attack ... randomly 4 days after the heart attack is now on life support ... once again very suspicious i do not trust these people .... they are also very RUDE

Worst hospital I have been to in B.C. it's understandable to wait a long time at emergency but when the doctor talks down to you when you wait 8 hours to see them is completely ****. Dr.Patel is a terrible doctor with no people skills whatsoever. I said my thank yous and talked kindly to her and she got mad at me because I said I was scared of needles. She told me that no one wanted me here and I can leave right and the hospital doesn't care at all. I didn't know it was required of the doctors in emergency to treat you like crap. On top of all that it was so dirty the washrooms had pee and vomit everywhere. The garbage can in my room had used needles in it. Completely unsafe and unsanitary.
