The worst part of this hospital experience is the billing. A common ear tube surgery was planned, pre-paid, and afterward a bill was received for almost the same as pre-payment amount. Check in and check out process was extremely slow.

My daughter stayed here twice for pneumonia when she was 1 and 3 years old. Each time the service was outstanding and response time was quick. We came back two years later and my daughter kept asking for her nurses from before!
