Please stay away from thus hospital. The worst mistake of my life putting trust in them. They are not on top of there patients. My mom suffered in while in recovery for 2 weeks. She should be home. She is gone. No one was watching her. They do not take care of there patients or diagnose them correctly. No excuse for errors. Worst mistake of my life. They should be ashamed. Peoples lives are in there hands. Patients cant have visitors. They should be more on top of there patients. No excuse. Just do your job. You shouldnt have to worry if your at a good hospital. Its a hospital. This is a serious job. Peoples lives are in your hands. This is not customer service or helping someone in a store. My mom suffered for no reason. Night mare. Please dont go here. This could of been avoided. My mom should still be here.

After reading some of the previous reviews I was very concerned about this Hospital. But thank God I had a different experience. This is a small hospital and to be fair I do agree that they need a little "TLC" on the building but nothing that would compromised their services or the patients. Everyone was very nice and helpful in this hospital. Emergency room was outstanding and on point. My wife had back surgery with the world class surgeon Dr. Ramesh Babu. A day later she walked out of the hospital on her on feet!. The service from the doctors to the anesthesiologist was top notch! A special thank you to all the nurses and staff of the 6 floor! Your are unbelievable professionals. And we have no words to describe how grateful we are for the way you treated us. You really do care for your patients!!!

Visited the emergency room for flu-like symptoms. I was seen within minutes, the female nurses were kind--and quite attractive. Most importantly, everyone was considerate, intelligent, and attentive.
