These monkeys have no business in med. Terrible hospital. They'll misdiagnose you and rush you out of there. Like a merry-go-round, except you never get off. Idiots working here are rude, loud and completely inept. Who's been giving this place good reviews? To whomever has been, here's a question: HAVE YOU EVER BEEN A PATIENT THERE?! Dump. They have no equipment, no parking, no nothing. Can't do anything, and wouldn't if they could. Need a bandage? They'll send you all the way to Boston to have it applied, because they can't even tie their own shoes at Holy Family. Prompt? They'll take their sweet time telling you what you need to know... usually a few days if it's urgent. And that is if they ever get around to it at all. The real problem here is Caritas. These idiots have been buying up every clinic, hospital and diagnostics center north of Boston, and they clearly have no concern for quality. They might as well be a fast-food company... heck, a fast-food company would probably be better at running a hospital than these CHUMPS. Expect a LOT more preventable deaths north of Boston.
