Burnaby General Hospital is a "third world hospital" not because of lack of funding, but because many of the BGH staff simply do not care or care enough. Patients are routinely misdiagnosed and the wait times are pathetic. My nephew went in after his fall from a bike and the BGH medical staff diagnosed a hairline fracture in his ankle and gave him a boot to wear. The pain was so intense that his family took him to BC Children's Hospital where they diagnosed him with a double fracture causing misalignment in his leg requiring surgery. So BGH is a lousy hospital that cannot even diagnose an ankle fracture properly leaving patients with undue pain and suffering. My wife went to BGH Emergency with cardiac symptoms 3 times in 1 month, but because she was not having a heart attack was not seen by a cardiologist. It was not until she went to St. Paul's Hospital in Vancouver that she was finally admitted and had proper tests and treatment done for her cardiomyopathy. Needless to say we will NEVER use Burnaby General Hospital again ... they should be closed down or placed under new management!!!

I found the doctors and nurses very pleasant and patient. They are thorough with their questions and evaluations. Wait times in the ER are not good. Bathrooms could use a bit more care but overall I have yet to have a bad experience here.

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!
