I visited the hispital on June 15, 2017 at approximately 620 p.m. I was doing a scheduled transport a mental challenged individual. At 752 p.m. I asked to speak to the supervisor on shift. She came out with the nastiest nonchalant attitude I've ever seen. So unprofessional speaking to a patron. She showed no compassion for my patient. If the supervisors act in this manor how do you expect the rest of the staff suppose to act. Amazingly the rest of the staff was pleasant. They wouldn't release her name. I asked her and others they did stick together about that they were afraid of getting a reprimand. (a month ago)

Surgery was a success. Been a patient here for the past 6 months. Dr’s are awesome. Some of the nursing staff and definitely the receptionist are the most rudest people that you would ever want to come across. Some people are praying for the job that they are abusing. Don’t forget the golden rule do unto others. (3 weeks ago)

I am giving this hospital one star but in truth it doesn't deserve that. I had a cardiac clearance done on July 10th 2018. My surgeon is still waiting for results! The hospital scheduled my test at 12:30p called to pre register at 9:30a when I got to hospital had to pre register again took 45 minutes to be told had to register. Ask what was the purpose of call that morning, was told they have to check over information given that morning. This is such a waste of time and money! I have a choice where I receive my health care service and it won't be here. Looking for doctors who don't work out of any of Merit Hospitals! (in the last week)

Some of the student nurses displayed better customer service than the other student nurses on duty. Don't know what the issue is but understand patients did not ask to be here at the hospital nor did they ever think you would be their caretaker. If you don't have a heart to deal with the sick, please find another career. This may be your love one in the same position one day!!!!! (5 months ago)

I had read alot of reviews on merrit and the majority was bad. I was very hesitant to go. I had a heart cart done there 6-22. All of the staff was very friendly and accommodating. I love my doctor his name is dr cheema. The only problem I had was my Iv had infiltrated before they gave my sedative berore surgery. I told several people that it was not in my vain. My arm was painful and swollen. But they injected my relaxation medicine I felt no affects. I told them again my Iv had infiltrated. They again inject my sedative in and again nothing. So I went through the procedure with no sedative at all. It was not fun. When I get back to the room I asked for pain medication and at that time I was going to show her my swollen arm and ask her to restart another Iv. None of this happened and I never got my pain med either. I had told my doctor that due to previous surgeries and icu phycosis that I needed to be relaxed during the procedure for my mental health. But besides that I have no complaints. Very friendly staff (3 weeks ago)
