Details:

I came to this hospital at around 9pm with my boyfriend who was in excruciating pain he informed everyone that he could that he needed to see a doctor immediately but no one cared! We ended up waiting for about 2 hours while they only placed us in fast track which only accumulated another hour all the while watching most of the staff ordering food and having conversion. We ended up leaving because my boyfriend couldn't wait for help anymore he was practicily about to pass out. We will never attend this hospital again !
