    모든시설이나 건물이 최근식이라 편하긴 하지만 접근성에 있어서 대중교통이 충분하지가 않아 불편하고 주차요금도 비싸서 차를 가지고 오기가 쉽지가 않다

    허리아파 다녀왔는데,시설이 다새거라 좋음
    간호샘들도 친절, 하지만 의료진은 노말함.
    아까운 시간과 비용을 들여 간게 후회스러움

    장례식장 조문 차 방문하였는데 시설이 생각보다 나쁘지 않았음. 흡연구역도 정확히 나뉘어져있고, 장례식장 내부 공간도 깔끔했다. 주차 공간이 외부에만 있는 점이 아쉽긴 했다.

    믿고 간만큼 모든 의료진이나 관계자들이 친절하고 정성을 다하는 모습이 참 좋았습니다.
    저는 정형외과 오인수 교수님께 진료를 받았는데 환자와 거리감 없이 대해주는 모습에서 더욱더 신뢰가 되어 믿고 편하게 치료를 잘 끝 냈습니다.
    교수님 정말 감사합니다

    완전 추천!! 이빨 때문에 갔었는데 빨리빨리 꼼꼼히 해 주셨어요!! 근데 의사분들이 말이 살짝 거침...근데 말을 듣다보니 그럴 수 밖게 없을 듯;;; 진료 받으러 오신 환자들은 많은데 꼼꼼하고, 빠르게 진료하려면 살짝 빨리 설명 할 수밖게 없을거고, 그 오랜시간 동안 진료보면서, 왔다갔다 하는게 그렇게 쉬운 일이 아님!! 글구... 대기하면서 봤는데 어떤 할머니께서 진료 받는 의자에 앉아계셨는데 그 진료 준비 중이여서 잠깐 앉아계시는데 빨리 해 달라고 재촉하는데도 옆에 있는 의사하고, 간호사가 친절히 설명해 주셨음!!
