Went in because of a rapid, unexplained hair loss. Was sent to the super-track area, where I listed to residents complain about how boring this particular department was, waiting to be seen by the attending Doctor. When I was finally seen, the Dr. "examined" me for all of 30 seconds, only to be advised that I seemed anxious (yes, I'm a female experiencing rapid hair loss) and asked if I'd ever seen a psychiatrist lol. Was told that there's nothing they could do for me, they "don't do those kind of tests here", and was completely dismissed. Long story short, I was eventually seen by a competent Dr., and have been diagnosed with an auto-immune condition, which was causing this troubling symptom. Had I not investigated further, I'd have no idea. As a quick aside, this Dr.'s dismissal of a very real symptom as a psychiatric issue makes me empathize with those people actually experiencing mental health issues. Shockingly poor service.

Disgusting trashy service. Avoid this hospital if you are conscious and still alive.

Terrible! Waited approximately 5 hours to see a doctor at the ER and left as wait was expected to be another 1.5 hours! Unfortunately my infection got worse and I've been trying to fight infection for over 6 months. Had to go on 2 rounds of antibiotics and now I'm seeing several specialists to try to help my condition!

How many people does this hospital want to kill? No seriously. Went for a massive nosebleed, waited more than 3 hours for only one doctor to come. Terrible, absolutely outrageous.

The culture of the PATH Unit is one of indifference and neglect. Some of the staff are okay, but most just do not care about the patients, or are incompetent and dishonest. Head Nurse has no interest in improving the care in this unit. No idea why a person like her went into nursing.

My husband had to go to ER due to severe diarrhea. After a 2-½ hour wait in a smelly cubicle my husband my husband asked a passing nurse when could a doctor attend to him. Her answer I don't know there are other patients who are in more serious condition than you and there is only ONE doctor here right now.!" My husband said we are hungry. Nurse answered " you can go anytime nobody is stopping you" in a tone that shows no sympathy at all and would be happy if every patient at the ER walks out and just leave them alone. After 5 minutes THE Doctor comes and yes not looking at my husbands record which he has in his hands but asked as questions which are all found in my husband's record. Finally, he says he cannot do anything for my husband and that we should call our doctor on what to do. It took him maybe 3 minutes to do all this and good bye. My husband had diarrhea for more than 48 hours interval of 2-3 hours of going to the toilet and of course feeling very weak that's why we were at the ER to get some relief. I am posting this hoping for some positive change at Burnaby Hospital. Your saving grace are the nurses and yes most of them are Filipinos doing a good job at attending to patients' needs.

While I can't speak on Burnaby Hospital as a whole, I can speak on their ER department. I have never seen hospital staff so miserable at their jobs and treat patients with such disrespect as I have at Burnaby General, especially its nurses. This hospital's ER needs a major staff renovation.
