My understanding was that the appointment would be with a specialist, but I saw a resident for the appointment instead. Clinicians really need to state their names and qualifications to the patient before doing anything and ask the patient if it is ok if they see a medical student instead of a physician. Frustrated. Seems teaching medical students is more important than helping people recover from illness.

Had a cut on my finger that was dealt with quickly by Dr. Prthab on Sunday the 18th of September in the emergency department. The Doctor stitched me up - no pain and with compassion. He was a very kind man. THanks for taking care of me.

My brother was taken to emergency and was treated with complete respect and the Doctors called me almost every day to keep me informed of his health problems. Tests were done almost immediately. He was taken to the 8th floor where everyone that he had contact with were wonderful. Nurse even brought him a heated blanket realizing he was cold. They operated on him yesterday. I would recommend this hospital to all. A BIG thank you to the Doctors and who have helped him. I appreciate it very much.

2 1/2 weeks at the hospital...Mistakes over mistakes...doctors don't know much what's going on and would not listen to patient's needs and some nurses and head of nurses have very poor customer care...a few nurses were awesome. Not the right food for the patient's condition. I would not recommend anyone to this hospital.

I had spine surgery 10 years ago and I am now having another one. `My surgeon is one of the best and this is why I go here. If I had to choose I would try another one. the hospital itself is horrible for patient treatment. my nurses were rude and extremely un-helpful. They would take forever to come in, they were late with my pain medications. I had to take the care into my own hands even though I was hopped up on morphine most of the time. The food was gross, I had no choice of tea or coffee. The nurses would move my call button where I couldn't reach then forget to put it back. they told me "I shouldn't be feeling this way...) if I told them something as if I was just a number/a statistic. The nurses had no empathy or training for how this affects you mentally. The frustration brought me to tears of angriness many times. I could not wait to go home.

As a health care professional, ranking a hospital is not something I do quickly. I like to give the situation alot of thought and fairly assess the issues. It has been 6 months since my husband had Deep Brain Stimulation for Parkinson's and I believe it has taken both of us this long to be able to talk about how very poor this experience was/is. This hospital is a place for well surgeons and their research not for sick Parkinson's patients. The experience, on so many levels was intolerable. From the poor post-op care to the shoddy discharge. This is a hospital that is 100% Medical model with not a hint of nursing prowess. We have not found a "hero" in any of the staff.
It amazes me that you could miss the target this badly.

Worst hospital ever they almost killed my dad in a surgery to remove the remaining veins in his head after he had an aneurysm and one of the surgents called Dr. Pirera used too much glue on my dads vein and it burst now he can't move his legs or half of his body he can't speak or sit up and we don't know if he will ever be able to walk again. After they told us there was a 2 percent chance of this happening they still refuse to take responsibility for there actions. This hospital has done so much damage to my family and has ruined my father's life I would never recommend this hospital to anyone. Just sickeningly awful.
