I no longer use this hospital since they x rayed my head some years ago, after an accident. They saw no fracture but failed to recognise the two obvious tumours, which showed up as big white blobs on the scan. I go to Toronto now.

My wife is a patient in psychiatry and some of the nursing staff couldn't care less if she got her medication. With her mental illness she hears voices and the some nurses wont give her, her medication or give it to her when they feel like it or if they don't they don't give it to her. She was upset by this and said she wanted to go home and wanted to talk to a doctor to get released. After speaking to this so called doctor his name being Dr. Butler, he was very rude to me and said he didn't care if she got her med or not and that he wouldn't discuss if with me. I thought this hospital might be an improvement from other hospitals but it's worse she has gotten worse since she's been there and is not getting better. Kind of makes me think they do this on purpose so they can collect more money from OHIP and private insurance. They suck and so does most of their mental health practitioners. I'm going to complain!!!

My daughter took my granddaughter to emerg 9.00am Sat. 22 October. The person on the desk said it sounded like she was constipated, my granddaughter had very BAD abdominal pain for 16 hours straight, this person told my daughter she should of given her divol & told my daughter that the child should be walking nit carried & made her walk to the bathroom with no results but a lot of pain. My daughter was than left in a waiting room for 3 hours befor she decided it was time to talk to somebody as this poor child was still in pain & nobody had look at her. Then after making this noise a Nurse looked at my granddaughter, 12.30 & said she would send in a doctor. The Dr. came ordered a ultra sound, after US they told my daughter that this little girl who had been in sever pain for 20 hours that she had an appendicitis and needed emergencies surgery. At 4.30 this little girl was operated on, the appendix had ruptured & the puss had to be cleaned out of her abdomen .
This could have been a lot better on my GD if the lady at the front deck had put this little girl on priority list instead this ? person diagnosed my GD without any consultation with a Nurse or a DOCTOR . Very disappointed with the way this was handled the person on the desk should not diagnose the patient ONLY A DOCTOR SOULD DIAGNOSE esp. a SICK CHILD. Children do not usually co. of a pain for NO REASON, VERY POOR

We have been residents of Oakville for many years and live 5 mins from the hospital. My wife went into labour and had concerns about her labour pain. We called the hospital first to ask whether it was a good idea to come in and were rudely told that we had to go to the hospital where my wife's Ob/Gyn was located. Why does this matter in Ontario where you are entitled to receive care at any hospital? Absolutely disgusted by these people.

Very bad expirence with Emergency Doctor, my husband spent a 8 hours in emergency with a heavy coughing, doctor was upset that he come in with the cough to emergency, did his examination and sent my husband home telling him that he has a cold. 3 days later my husband went to family doctor because he was almost choking with his cough and family Doctor said that he has very bad pneunomia family Doctor couldn't believe that emergency Doctor kick him out from the hospital with so bad health condition . I am very disappointed with the same doctors in this hospital.

Was sent to emerge by ambulance after a car accident. Only 1 doctor working. Arrived at 7:40pm. Only saw Dr. Singh at 11:45pm. Nurses and Radiology were kind and very officiant. But we only received the results from Doctor at 3:00am, even though he had the results hours earlier. When he finally came, he only addressed 2 out of the 3 major issues, and told us to wait 20 mins for a prescription and a splint. No instructions on the meds, and thank goodness the nurse saw the ankle also needed taping. Even though she just started her shift. Rediculous waiting for minimal information from the Doctor.
Also disappointed in the design of the brand new building. My daughter is in a powerchair, and while trying to find me in the emerge, the wheelchair door button was positioned too high and blocked by a decorative windowsill. She could not get in. They also locked the doors by the wheelchair parking, with no personnel (security) to help. So my husband went to get the car closer for me (now needing a wheelchair) but could not get back in. It is a hospital, why is it locked?

Have stayed in numerous. southern Ontario hospitals. This is by far my best experience.
I was admitted via the Emergency Dept with serious heart and kidney problems.
First physician contact was with Dr. Fong. He processed my admission and quickly placed me in the cardiac unit.
I stayed in hospital for over a week.
During my stay I was seen by Dr. Lee and cardiologist, Dr. Sean Jedrzkiewic, as well as nephrologist, Dr Pandeya.
All the physicians were knowledgeable, gave me lots of time and answered all my questions.
During the week's stay, I was treated by many different nurses and technicians. Without exception they were all outstanding.
The food at the hospital to my surprise was good. I appreciated being able to make choices and time of delivery.
I found the nurses to be empathetic, available and very professional.
If I had any complaints it would be with a couple of nursing teams who, on night shifts, used the nursing station as a social centre and forgot that patients were trying to sleep.
Under the difficult circumstances this was a very positive experience.
My sincere thanks.
