Nursing Staff very pleasant and attentive. Howeve, Doctors don't like cases that they actually have to figure out what's wrong. This hospital will discharge you with a 10 out of 10 chest pain, dizzy to the point you can't stand, and puking in front of nursing staff. If your case is not text book, this isn't the hospital for you. They would rather see you rebound back to the hospital, so they can double charge your insurance, instead of trying to solve the problem causing you to come to the hospital.
