Best hospital out there!! I've been with all their specialist for 10 years and I couldn't be happier. I have an Obgyn, cardiologist and genetic specialist here and they are all so helpful. Worth the 45 minute drive for the great care I receive here!! (4 months ago)

My wife was pregnant and did not feel well so she came here for a checkup at the ER she had to wait from 1:30 to almost 8 in the evening to be fully evaluated and discharged and when I spoke with the doctor and asked why it could take this long she said the radiologist and other specialists were busy seeing other more serious cases first. So in other words she said " THIS HOSPITAL IS HEAVILY UNDERSTAFFED" otherwise how can you expect to wait 6-8 hours when you go to the emergency room might as well go to a walk in clinic. I don't reccomend this hospital to anybody they are rude and heavily understaffed they need to hire more people asap and next time if somebody needs to go to the ER I say go in an ambulance you have better chances of getting done sooner otherwise they just take their sweet time and theirs not enough people any way to support the influx of patients pretty soon it will resemble a third world country hospital very sad and disgusting!!! On a side not we used to live in queens ny and Elmhurst hospital was the same way hours and hours of wait to be evaluated and ghetto staff you have to deal with well I feel slowly uconn hospital is becoming a ghetto hospital with a bad reputation just like Elmhurst hospital in queens ny. UCONN hospital please hire more staff to run your hospital I recall a time it wasn't always this way and you would get done within an hour sometimes from the ER. Please hire more STAFF before somebody has a heart attack from stress of waiting and waiting to be evaluated in the ER. (a month ago)

I just had a total R hip replacement, My Surgeon, Dr. Halawi & all the staff were top notch, I am an RN so that means a lot !!! (2 months ago)

Best treatment in the entire industry...I felt better as soon as I stepped in the door from registration to being released. Dr. Van Meter you are the best. (4 months ago)

The most rude, condescending, and disorganized group of people I have ever met, especially when it comes to their own mistakes. I went for a sleep study through Uconn health and the technician was not just rude, but the most rude individual I think I have ever met. Wasn't helpful at all, and told me I would hear back in 5-10 days, but it was a month before I called and had to initiate getting my results back, and had to go to my own physician who confirmed my sleep apnea. When I called to get the results they accused me of never going there and said I must have missed my sleep study, as if I would forget going to a sleep study? Finally it was determined they misspelled my name, no apologies, but then said they can't help me I have to make an appointment for another month out (two months post sleep study and confirmed apnea). They also called to tell me my insurance was declined and said it would cost hundreds of dollars. Finally I found out they entered my insurance id number incorrectly. Again, no apologies, just rude and stuck up attitudes. I could almost deal with the rudeness if they were helpful at least, but they aren't. It's almost like you are bothering or annoying them with your medical problems. I have been extremely tired, gaining weight, and experiencing many side effects of sleep apnea but by the time I get the cpap machine which my ear nose and throat doctor already said I need, it will be about 4-5 months after my sleep study with them confirmed it, so I just have to live with the side effects while this so called "sleep center" gives me the run-around and files my information incorrectly while accusing me of not doing what I need to do. Thanks, UConn Health! (3 months ago)
