I went with severe abdominal pain 1 month post surgery and was ignored for 3 hours before I left to seek treatment elsewhere. If I had been having a heart attack i would have died. Its worth going somewhere else if able. I will never trust their triage ability ever again. (a week ago)

This review is also for the Boris clinic at McMaster hospital. In the fall of 2016 my father woke up one morning with swollen legs that had red rashes on both shins. I rushed him to the General hospital where the emergency room doctor misdiagnosed his condition initially as a bacterial infection. Even I knew it was not a bacterial infection because that breaks out sporadically on parts of the body and not as a clear marking in a certain area and evenly on BOTH legs. I was correct because the Boris clinic diagnosed it as a build up of fluid in my father's body. We went to the Boris clinic twice in two weeks and saw two different doctors....for about 5 minutes each. The bulk of the time was spent giving information to the nurse's practitioner. We felt very rushed with the doctors and it was disappointing seeing two different ones over the short time span mentioned. No extra water pill medication was given to us. Fast forward to just after Christmas. The fluid build up in my father's body was so bad just after Christmas that he had to be rushed once again to the General hospital where his condition persisted for SIX weeks until the middle of February 2017 BEFORE ANYBODY DID ANYTHING ABOUT IT. The doctors at the Boris clinic that fall and an entire cardiac team of doctors at the General hospital in that six weeks did not treat the fluid build up to bring it down until finally as a last minute gesture, a doctor gave him a quadruple dose of his water pills and dad lost 50 pounds of fluid very quickly which I believe damaged his heart permanently from the sudden drop and carrying it all around for so long to begin with and he passed away the first week of May 2018. His body never recovered from the initial fluid build up which I believe put tremendous strain on his heart leading to his passing 15 months later when he could have had more time if doctors had acted more quickly. No one discussed the possibility of giving him a larger dose of water pills in the early stage of his condition. The risks of too much water medication are damage to the kidneys because they get dried out. No one wanted to give the medication to him initially, I believe, because they were afraid of getting in to trouble or being hit with a malpractice suit in my opinion if something happened to the kidneys. His kidneys also had limited function but again, no one discussed the possibility of what could happen. If there was a possibility of something going wrong with the medication, just have us sign a waiver. No problem. You're protected. The patient will certainly die if you do NOTHING. Patient's families are just people, capable of listening and coming to a rational decision. We had to sign a waiver in 1993 when my mother had a heart attack and they wanted to give her a new clot busting drug which ended up saving her life. See? They talked to us, had us sign a piece of paper and my mother lived for another 22 years. Dad was not as lucky and he carried so much fluid on his lungs for so long that I believe he died prematurely when his life could have been extended if the Boris clinic and especially the General hospital had acted more quickly to give him the water medication he needed. RIP dad. You're in competent hands now. (2 weeks ago)

It would be great if the hospital staff had a designated smoking area. I do not appreciate having to stand in the cold while I wait for the bus due to the fact the hospital staff consistently occupies the bus shelter to smoke their cigarettes (at Wellington and Barton). Not to mention how poorly this looks on your institution to see your staff in scrubs smoking and littering in front of your building... So healthy. (3 months ago)

I spent four hours waiting to see a doctor while pregnant and in such pain that it was keeping me awake and I hadn’t slept in 24 hours. This hospital is understaffed and can’t help people. The nurses also sit outside in front of the non-smoking signs and smoke right where patients walk into the hospital. It’s shameful. (a week ago)

Doctors were good, stitched me up good, -2 stars for the hours I spent bleeding in the waiting room after the ambulance dropped me off and more hours waiting in between procedures (a month ago)
