Location and Directions


Ambulance brought me there for a compound fracture. I was operated on within 2 hours. Immediately after the operation was a bit rough as they are stingy with pain meds. I stayed for 2 more days for monitoring/recovery. Food was actually good. The recent takeover has had an affect on staff. People are new and generally have a good attitude but you can see that they haven't hit their operational rhythm just quite yet. Be a nice person and you should receive good service. Overall the stay was the nicest part of the trauma experience. (2 months ago)

Pretty great experience for NYC ER's. Seen and processed very quickly (on a Thursday early morning), everyone was kind and they ran the tests I needed quickly. The doctors were only there for two minutes each, as usual, but were nice, and the nurses and techs were great. Was in my own room within 15-20 minutes of checking in. (2 months ago)

Went to the emergency room and they took me in right away. When I shared that I was uninsured they pointed out their clinic and made sure that my emergency room visit was covered so I wouldn't have to worry. Very helpful and knowledgable and I felt very much taken care of by the staff. (a month ago)

I used to praise NYU for being the best. For the past two years, they have gone to the dumps. esp. this recent handing out Doctors their name like candy. I used to go because they were very specific about who they would allow under their umbrella, and rightfully so. I have gone to 2 PCPs for a pain I have had for 4 months that I ignored because I was going to medical school myself. Not once was I offered antibiotics, which, is already questionable. So far, I found an amazing old school OB/GYN on ZocDoc who checked my ovaries and egg count without even asking! I asked an OB/GYN at NYU to check since I am 35 and around the age where risk gets higher to have kids -- her arrogant attitude + refusal to do so = ciao baby There is one good OB/GYN at NYU that I started to go to years ago (before this mess happened at NYU) but he barely has availability. I am unclear if there is too much fear of lawsuits at NYU facilities that I cannot get anything as simple as an antibiotic. So, I will stick with old-fashioned doctors to avoid some scenarios, where, as I learned in medical school - that an individual could die or undergo severe injury if antibiotics are not administered based on symptoms before the lab results come in. I have Bell's Palsy and had a few recurrences so I am not taking that risk. Lab results are a handicap to this facility, do doctors at this facility know how to diagnose an individual by mere symptoms at NYU Langone? I already knew all I needed were antibiotics so I'm not sure what is going on with this organization (or disorganization for that matter) but I'm not going to have a severe problem based on whatever the heck is going on lately. I am leaving NYU and searching for more independent, perhaps a bit run down facility but full of heart, something NYU has lost. (in the last week)

Dr . Prashant Sukhani is the best endodontist i have met . He goes more then out of his way to help his patients . He makes my son feel very comfortable considering what he is there for . This hospital should be proud to have such a person working for them . (3 weeks ago)
