TOP important and interesting reviews from patients

Had a procedure done here, the staff superb, amazing bedside manner, friendly to me and my mother, along with great communication from start to finish m- i including preop! Couldn’t have had a better experience! Thank you all who work there you are greatly appreciated!

Very settling and comfortable before my procedure because of the calming treatment and service I was afforded before going through my treatment by the clerks, techs and especially the nurses and doctors. I had no fear of what was to come because of their care towards me.

I was informed well of all I needed to do before and the day of surgery and was without confusion. Dr. Bertini did a great job at fixing my problem. I now can walk, exercise, and do other things without having any pain. Everything thing great, and I am very happy!

We had all our 5 children delivered at St. Joe's hospital. They were very nice nurses there. We had the same doctor every time. There is no place better to go. Everyone is important there.

This was the fourth time I was at St. Joseph's hospital. Everything from registration through discharge was easy and efficient. Everyone was very professional and nice. A great experience that I would recommend to anyone.

This hospital service was mediocre . I went here to the emergency room for poison and their service was wack. I didn’t receive the proper care I needed. They was more focus on their coworkers singing then really seeing about their patients. This hospital need to do be with care of the patients that come in the emergency room. They assume I was having an anxiety attack and gave me a pill for that when I just told them that I had poison blown in my face. They told me they couldn’t do much for but orders me an inhaler. Lied to me about ordering me pain medication for my headache. The nurse here was very inexperienced. She didn’t know what she was doing but the doctor in charge let her get away with it. Please go to another hospital if you want great service because this hospital don’t care at all inside this emergency room.

Bad experience with security sergeant with dreads. Very insecure little fellow and stalks, harasses, taunts, over monitors you half the time. Other half the time he's making jokes about your predicament with medical staff. Try a different venue for health protection, mental and physical.

What more can I say, a smooth operation process. I was sleep before I knew it, then when I woke up it was all over! However they billed the wrong insurance company!
