Ratings for New York-Presbyterian Hospital
Many of my doctors are affiliated with New York-Presbyterian Hospital. Some are based in the hospital, while others have their own offices in the neighborhood. This past year, I've had a decent Internal Medicine physician who is a Top Doctor of NY (Castle Connolly); however, she tends to speak very fast and move quickly through an exam. Also, I had a first time appointment with a gynecologist based at the hospital; she seemed proficient but not especially friendly. The excellent thing is that they are able to scan your copies of prior medical records into the hospital database and all your lab results and emails to your doctors are available to view online with a password. Therefore, you can track your health progress over time, since prior tests can be viewed alongside more recent ones. Unfortunately, some NY state health insurance plans such as the Oscar Health Plan for 2016 will exclude this fine teaching hospital, due to higher health insurance reimbursements. The physicians overall are top notch and several are found in the Castle Connolly Top Doctors of NY annual guides and related website.

Doctors don't even look at you. The examination lasts 30 sec max.

Last month, I had open heart surgery at NYP Weill Cornell. We couldn't be more pleased with the surgeon, his staff and the excellent members of the ICU and 4th floor step down units. From the nurses to the housekeeping staff members, the care was top notch. Although the facilities may be old, it's the quality of the personnel which counts the most! We were very impressed.

HIGH MRSA and other bacteria rate. Higher than any other hospital in the area. I got MRSA in OR 11. Someone put dirty hands or instruments on my surgical wound. It took them 3 weeks to figure out what it was, my surgeon never checked the cultures that were back in 4 days. The lady in the bed next to me had a lung transplant. She was exposed because twice daily the residents cut dead tissue out of my now crater hole in my stomach. Staff was AWFUL, would not assist with me anything even first day post op. Dr was horrible. It was ALL horrible for almost a year of my life and on a PICC line on and off for the rest of my life. Stay away from this filthy hospital!

Thank you for taking very good care of my 1 year old Grandchild. Her reaction to a vaccine wasn't very kind.

Excellent MD's. Excellent staff too. My husband and I have received almost all our medical care at NYPH (68th St) for over 40 years. We feel very safe there - we both have obscure medical conditions and NYPH MD's diagnosed each of us after we each had been misdiagnosed at various medical centers. We have had a total of 3 hospitalizations and surgeries and we are both grateful for the care provided by the doctors, nurses and other staff at NYPH.

I live in walking distance of Presbyterian and have used it many times. My PCP is there (she's fantastic!),I've had most of my tests there and underwent surgery there as well. My experiences have been incredibly mixed. I've had great Dr.s there and at least two I wanted to strangle. I've had great nurses and dreadful ones. The restrooms in the office areas are often disgusting.My hospital stay for surgery was FAR below average. I was moved to a room from recovery at 4AM only to learn that the previous occupant of my bed had moved to a private room to escape my rude and thoughtless roommate. (She turned the overhead light on at 5AM!) Since I was scheduled for release that morning, there was no reason (other than being able to bill the insurance for a hospital room) to put me through this. Finally the food was so inedible that I waited till I was released to have breakfast. I had my last surgery at NYU's Langone -which, while inconvenient, was a much better experience.

My 32 yo daughter has an extensive history of post surgical infections due to a subclass immune deficiency, and has previously lost use of a arm due to this. She was admitted in Feb2013 for a pneumothorax, and finally discharged Aug, 2013 (due to one infection after another & having half of a lung/2 ribs removed). When readmitted AGAIN 2 weeks later for the same continuing infection she was discharged with, she is now under a medical team that is terrible. Her primary care for 3 weeks has been predominantly under a 4th year medical student who is dismissive, doesn't know what he is doing with such a complex case, yet is the voice recommending what direction her treatment will be going in...She's still currently inpt. now - we have involved Patient Services - next will be Joint Commission & Health Dept. This admission has been not only uncoordinated, but she is worse after admission than before entering...
