Had two of our kids there by c-section through midwives. Although we don't speak French and this place has a reputation for being a primarily French-speaking hospital, we weren't treated any differently from anyone else while we were there. Maternity ward is secure using ankle bracelets and perimeter locking doors. Visitor parking lot is close to the building. Bad: parking extremely expensive, only takes two hours to hit the maximum daily rate. Cafeteria never seemed to be open when dad needed it.

I went to the Montfort Emergency at 11;30 p.m. on July 27, 2015, with a very bad pain in my upper abdomen that went through to my back. I threw up twice at home and once on the way to the hospital while being driven there by friend. I NEVER throw up. Got to emerg. Was given a shot for pain, supposedly, but it didn't work. It started with N, I don't remember the name, probably stands for "nothing". I sat in an absolutely freezing emergency waiting room in VERY bad pain for 5 1/2 hours with a bunch of stoic, stony-faced idiots working there with "I don't care about you at all" written all over their bloody faces. They didn't have a blanket for me, and I was extremely cold. Finally, I was told to walk down a very long hall (still in very bad pain). Then finally I was attended to properly, given morphine, had an X-ray, told I had pancreatitis caused by a gallstone, that I would be admitted and have my gallbladder out. The 5 1/1 hours in emergency were horrific and I SWEAR I WILL NEVER EVER GO BACK TO THAT HOSPITAL. My care once I was attended to was fine, good pain relief, but the dumb doctor who was put in charge of my care (Jose Peres) put me on a liquid diet for two days after surgery because "he wanted me to have a bowel movement before I left the hospital". How do some of these people get in or out of medical school? THEN he said that I could eat whatever I wanted. I think he'd mixed me up with another patient. Stupidity abounds.

I was pregnant...and my experience was awful painful and full with disappointments and tears! From unprofessional staff and nurses -- only one nurse was in duty that day... and left me to recharge her phone battery when I was in the status of delivering my baby for the first time...one doctor in duty and he was busy with two other delivers so I had to wait for 4 hours while I was ready to deliver...delivery room was left uncleaned and although I asked for a private room I was forced to stay there till a room frees up!! Nurses refuses to help me using washroom after delivery or provide snack when I was hungry...they allowed MD students to observe my baby delivery without a permission...I was bleeding a lot with no follow up from the doctor and left the hospital with an infection!!! nurse did not follow my birth plan nor my wish to have a natural delivery...after having my baby, nurse who was in charge was even worse than the one who left! She was rude and condecinding!! Unhelpful, careless and bold!! We asked for help and she mocked us...we asked for a pen to sign a paper she wondered how come we don't care a pen in our belongings we asked for a blanket, she said how come you don't have a sleeping bag with you!!! Everything was horrifying, nasty, and unpleasant. Please if you are expecting do yourself a favour and don't deliver in that hospital.

I had day surgery to correct my hallus valgus, and received excellent treatment. Follow up appointment was also excellent. Volunteers and staff were professional and curtious. Thank you for your care.

Never again will I go to this hospital. Went for a colonoscopy and felt very uncomfortable due to the staff's prejudice. Waste of taxpayers money. This is the problem with politics meddling in Health Care!

went in for emergency at night and sat there for 6 hours before i got to see a doctor. i knew what was wrong but the doctor basically called me a liar, didnt do any tests and knew absolutely nothing about my meds. the doctor was rude and very incompitent, even the nurses were rude and ignorant. horrible people in that hospital, your likely to die there than you are to actually get the help you need

Unfortunately all the negative reviews on here are true. They are pretty biased in you don't speak French and treat you like second citizen. Wait times for emergency dep are unbelievably long - 14 hours for my dear mom- there were only 2 emergency doctors and about 200 patients in the waiting rooms! Head nurse, or emergency nurse was such a b****! I can't believe hey hire people like her there- I certainly reported her for how she treated my sick mother. Facility is ok - wasn't filthy. Doctor was ok as well. I still like the general hospital way better. Most wait time I had was 5 hour, not to mention great staff and caring doctors. If you can , go to the General
