My daughter was having lots of pain in her right hip so we went first to an urgent care, and we went in immediately. Then we went to an Emergent care, where we had to wait for hours. She was in much pain, and sitting in an uncomfortable waiting room chair was not very helpful. Once we got in she got an X-Ray blood tests and hours of sleepless waiting. They called ahead to the hospital and got a room. We drove to the hospital and entered through the garage. The place was basically empty and a t first we were worried that wouldn't be able to find it, but the sign were actually very helpful. The nurses showed nothing but kind and helpful attitudes(They switched from night shift to day shift while we were there) The doctors did what they had to do and did not stretch it out. The only bad thing was it was her hip, and so she was required to move her pants down a little, and there were like 6 doctors in the room! Maybe a little privacy would be nice! After her stay a man wheeled her out to the garage. Overall her stay was amazing ( Although the hospital food was.... We expected that coming in, its kind of a famous cliche that hospital food is not very good)! The kindness showed to us by the staff here at this hospital was amazing. Thank you to the wonderful people who work there, and showed kindness throughout the night, even at 2 A.M.(Even waking up a sleepy eleven year old to take her vitals, they tried their absolute hardest to make it as comfortable as she could be) Thank you to the peds department at Ellis Hospital.

My father's final days were spent in this spectacular facility. All staff were attentive to not only the patients needs, but to our family's needs. If there could be 6 stars, I would rate it a 6. Thank you for treating everyone with dignity. (2 months ago)

Have been waiting for 3 hours to be seen at emergency room with toddler who needs stitches. Others have been waiting for 5, 6, 8 hours. Several people have left without treatment. A 90-year old woman finally left with her family because they had been here for hours, unseen.This place is a mess. Learn how to fast track and staff properly. (3 months ago)

This hospital really sucks I wish they had MOUNT SINAI up here best hospital ever n NYC (a week ago)

I went to Ellis UrgentCare in Clifton Park for an injury and they erroneously reported I was in an auto accident to my insurance, which caused all of my claims with my insurance to freeze for over a year. I was not made aware of this situation until it started effecting my credit score as Ellis never contacted me about the issue. After countless days and hours on the phone with everyone to clear this up, ellis then decided to illegally bill me for a year of finance charges which built up due to their own incompetent staffs actions. In trying to resolve this it was made abundantly clear how horribly this organization is managed and I would highly encourage you to use one of our many other wonderful medical options in the area. I do not trust this place with my medical needs. I do not feel safe sending my family here. Be warned. (2 weeks ago)
