    Awful ER team. My 18 year old daughter just arrived in Israel after a 12 hour plane flight. She had to accompany her friend to the ER. It is 2 am. The ER staff bullied my daughter into signing financial paperwork for her friend, and walked away. I am a doctor and I wanted to speak with the staff about the plan for the patient, and also my daughter, who needs to rest. The staff refuses to come to the phone, and they refuse to give my daughter a chair to rest in, and she has not slept in 48 hours. They are letting this 18-year-old foreigner cry, without a seat to rest in or a plan in place for the night. She is now scared of the staff, and is afraid to leave her friend there alone. One male nurse tried to let her take a chair, but a female nurse overrode him, yelling out, “chutzpah” and “shtuyot.” Horrible and uncaring people. A shame and a disgrace.

    Invited to elective surgery at 10:00AM. Left to wait in the lobby for 7 hours. Surgery began only at 18:30. Total chaos in between

    I have done there comprehensive general tests recently. This is not my first time there, and I noticed how much they improved the tests process. There was no too much waiting, everything flows smoothly, and it was very convenience too as they send alerts to your phone so there is no need to check the monitors and be alert for your turn. Also the stuff are very kind and professional. Plus you can also have free breakfast there which is nice. Very recommend 👍
