Got a bill for $800 for physical therapy that did nothing and was told it was covered by insurance. This update is because the eventual actual bill from PT was only $89 which was perfectly reasonable. MRI scan wait was 10 minutes - GREAT, took longer than that to get to the station from the entrance! Went to ER complaining of choking, doctor reported that I had complained of dry mouth instead - I thought not breathing was a reason to go to the ER. Found I had a fairly common condition on the WEB. Took my mother to ER twice for strokes, did absolutely nothing. Verdict? ER is useless unless you have, say a broken arm. But you get tests fast, very fast compared to most hospitals (I worked security at various hospitals in Boston). For either an MRI or X-rays my waits were counted in minutes, not hours. X-ray from entering ER to hearing results (foot wasn't broken) was about a half hour - terrific. (3 months ago)

I was there yesterday and everyone was wonderful. The people I came in contact with were great. Everyone was very kind and helpful. My experience was first class. (3 months ago)

After waiting 4 hours to be seen, the nurse practitioner wants to order something else? Do it all at once. This hospital's big selling is "emergency room staffed with a doctor 24hrs a day, same great service? " the clinics are faster and friendlier. No, never saw a doctor. Will not ever go back. Just a glorified bandaid station. (a year ago)

go to dubois hospital (6 months ago)

After sitting for an hour in the waiting room my gf finally talked to one person. After another hour sitting in the waiting room (2 hours of waiting) we finally went into the ER. After another 2 hours finally got to leave. Junk hospital and a waste of time! (a year ago)
