The only reason I’m being generous and giving this review 3 stars is because the PA that treated me, J. Richard, was very helpful, kind and understanding. I severed two tendons in my hand on 7/10/18. I arrived at Interfaith Medical Center’s emergency department at 10PM and was received by the intake staff around 10:30PM. They were kind, took my information and were patient with me. I was then brought into the emergency department. I met PA J. Richard right away. He was helpful, cheerful and was patient with me. Provided numbing treatment to my wound and wrapped my hand. I then went to have a cat scan around 11:30PM. That took about 45 mins to 1 hour. I then returned to the emergency department to wait for my cat scan results. I was told it would take about 45 mins to 1 hour. By this time it was midnight. After waiting almost 2 hours for my results, I decided I’d prefer to see my own doctor because no one was helping me, giving me updates etc. I told the CNA (maybe nurse?) that I wanted to be discharged and she told me to speak to the other PA on duty because the PA on duty would have updates for me and would be able to discharge me. I respectfully requested an update and to be discharged with the PA (maybe nurse) that I was directed to. That PA looked at me. Told me to hold on because she was tending to her own patients (whatever that means because she was ignoring everybody up in there!). She then told me to step back even though I was standing nowhere near her. Finally she looks at me and without even checking her computer, tells me the results of my cat scan and asks me whether I want to discharge against medical advice. This means she knew my cat scan status and just didn’t update me. I sat there for hours, respecting everyone, and trusting that they would update me at reasonable times. From there I sign the discharge papers. She calls the PA that was assigned to me (J. Richard). J. Richard returns as tells me not to leave so that he can wrap my hand, and give me the documents I needed to give my own doctor, and my medicine prescriptions. At that moment the PA that was ignoring me says: Mean PA: “Why aren’t you leaving?” Me: J. Richard told me to stay Mean PA: yeah but you told me you wanted to leave so why didn’t you leave? Me: because he told me to stay Mean PA: I did the discharge Papers as a courtesy to you! Me: listen I don’t want to fight with you. I’m just trying to get help from my PA who wants to help me. Mean PA: you’re rude! This PA had all the time to fight with me about NOTHING....but claims she’s so busy tending her to patients. Who does that? She shouldn’t work in an emergency department if she can’t handle the work load and gets mad about little things. Why would she prioritize fighting with me over treating patients? I didn’t leave the emergency department until 4AM. In addition to the above, the emergency department conditions were atrocious. The bathroom was filthy! Smelled like urine, and seems like it’s never cleaned. Blood soiled materials are not handled with care, which is alarming. The Nurse (CNA maybe?) dropped my pill on the floor and never found it to pick it up. An attendant that transferred me to and from the cat scan area, admitted to me that he had had a very strong drink before work. He was slurring his words and it was evident that he was under the influence. This place is a mad house. I’m not exaggerating one detail. I mentioned the good and the bad.

A close relative was recently admitted to Interfaith Medical Center. The staff in the emergency room were very kind, patient, and professional. The staff on the medical floor were knowledgable, polite and kept family member up to date with the patient progress and explained all medical procedures in details so we all can make an informed decision on the best way to proceed. Pro: +Majority of the staff were professional, knowledgable and appeared to care. +They addressed the immediate health issues and made my relative feel better. +The food looked healthy and delicious. +Parking was assessable majority of the time. +They have an awesome gift shop Great variety at a decent price. Con: None that I can recall at the moment. Except they do not have a bike rack or anyplace to lock up a bicycle if you choose to cycle there. Unfortunately, I heard some talk that they might close down and no longer take new patients. I was unable to confirm to know if its true or not. Conclusion: I highly recommend Interfaith Medical Center. I give them 4 stars out of 5 because overall they provided great services however, a few staff members were unprofessional and dishonest.
