Excelente calidad de servicio y atención personalizada. Ampliamente recomendable!!
María Carolina Angrisano, July 2019
Es increíble como nadie te recibe en emergencias... parece una casa abandonada la puerta de emergencias... inaceptable que las personas pueden llegar con una urgencia y nadie acude a ayudarlas... ya nos ha pasado varias veces... hoy por ejemplo mi esposo no podía ni caminar del dolor, pero nadie está afuera para recibir a los pacientes, tuvo que caminar hasta pasar dos puertas y dos escritorios grandes totalmente vacíos y ahí empezar a gritar por ayuda... increíble que pase esto en la emergencia de un hospital.

Pésima atención en banco de sangre. Se tardan las horas en tener listos los resultados para ver si eres candidato a donar (que me hace dudar que tengan los aparatos necesarios para hacerlos, hasta parece que los mandan analizar a otro lado). La señorita nos lo hizo saber: tiempo para donación de sangre es de “3 horas”. Jamás me había tardado tanto en ningún hospital.

I’m from Monterrey originally but reside now in Dallas, TX. Came down to see some of the specialists in this hospital since it was recommended to me by my Dad.
Have to say I was blown away at how amazing this Hospital is.
The architecture is beautiful, the facility, extremely clean. The people working, very knowledgeable and kind and have your best interest at heart. The doctors, are incredible. Extremely thorough and take the time to answer all of your questions and leave you feeling better than when you came in. I got the opportunity to work with the ENT field with Dr. Luis Miguel Garza Talamas and Dr Israel de La Cruz and the fact that they were bilingual and excellent doctors made my visit worth it. After 7 months of being misdiagnosed they were able to help me with my problem very quickly.
Extremely grateful, highly recommend this hospital and their service to anyone.
