Overall Review

The reviews for this hospital are generally positive, though there are some patients who express dissatisfaction with the long waiting times and certain aspects of the staff’s responses. The hospital receives high ratings particularly in obstetrics, gynecology, and pediatrics. However, as with any large hospital, there seems to be room for improvement in terms of managing congestion, waiting times, and certain staff interactions.
