My son had to go in their due to a kidney infection. While throwing up waiting to be seen we told the nurse that he was throwing up and she said "People throw up all the time". Then after taking our son for a little walk to get his mind off the pain he threw up again.. and one middle aged man had the nerve to ask us to clean it up.. This Toronto city is degenerate and very sad.. I hope someone finally takes everyone out of their pitiful and miserable existence.

I've never waited less than 6 hrs in this ER before seeing a doctor. I once went in due to having severe breathing problems, was directed to change into a gown and wait for a doctor in a room. After 2 more hours, I peeked out to see a surprisingly empty hallway, save for the doctor who was standing with a group of female staff, clearly telling jokes and flirting. I waved and asked how much longer it would be, then he walked over. As if that wasn't bad enough, I told him I was having difficulty breathing, my chest hurt, and my ribs felt lumpy. He did not use a stethoscope, did not touch my ribcage, and didn't do any form of exam. He sent me on my way saying it was most likely a virus and not to worry. I know my body - something was very wrong. I went to another doctor the next day. Diagnosis: severe pneumonia, left lung filled with fluid, and dislodged ribs from coughing so much. Tragically, this was only one of many awful experiences with TEGH/Michael Garron Hospital.

According to Toronto Star news article, this hospital does ignores the Health Care Consent Act, enacted in 1996, the Substitute- Decisions Act and patient autonomy. They are being sued after a doctor wrote a Do Not Resuscitate Order on a patient without consent. In 2008, two doctors at Sunnybrook hospital (Dr. Donald Livingston and Dr. Martin Chapman) also wrote an illegal DNR order on a patient and then refused the patient breathing support causing death. The Minister of Health, Eric Hoskins, the Ministry of the Attorney General refuse to conduct investigations and lay criminal charges. They refuse to protect the public. The elderly are most at risk. If you have lost a loved one in hospital, I urge you to review their hospital chart to see if they were a victim. Look under the Physician Order Section in the chart to see if an unauthorized, illegal DNR order was written by a doctor without consent. If you find this go to the police, hire a lawyer and start the complaint process. Unlike Elizabeth Wettlaufer, the hospitals and doctors are not going to confess to wrongdoing.

Terrible, Terrible, Terrible.. My son just had his tonsils out and was forced to leave the hospital sick and puking. We asked to speak to the doctor but we're told by the nurses, there is doctor available to talk to us. Some of the nurses in pediatrics are heartless and should not be working with children. We ended up taking him to sick kids. It's the best thing we could have done. They are taking great care of him. Shame on Toronto East General!!!!

Good doctors. Many bad apples among nursing staff. Rude, insensitive, unresponsive, etc. Mean to patients who are vulnerable, and yes, non-white.

The Emergency room is the worst I have ever experienced in my life. Ambulances, walk ins, drug addicts are all triaged in one open space and you have to wait for hours. A person could be dead by the time a doctor saw you. It is the worst hospital in the area no matter if they changed their name to Michael Garron Hospital. I would recommend taking a taxi to Toronto General or Toronto Western if you can, otherwise you might never come out alive out of East General.

Although it is bigger in looks, the rooms are digusting. The floors of patient rooms dont seen to be swept or mopped. Poor hygiene.
