I have had many experiences with this hospital- some planned (maternity) and some unplanned. The hospital and care received is worthy of 4 or more stars in most cases, however, the billing/payment procedures are terrible. If you cannot pay

Dr. Arpita Swami is a diagnostic radiologist, specializing in mammography and ultrasound guided core needle biopsy. Today, she performed a core needle Bx on a lump which I found in my breast, and which did not show up on mammography, but was very evident on a sonogram.
I can see why Dr. Swami came highly recommended. The only discomfort that I felt was at the very beginning of the procedure when the first injection of lydocaine, or whatever numbing agent they utilize, was given. That could not even be accurately called 'pain', as it was just a brief 'stick' and a stinging sensation. From then on out, for the entire procedure, including the biopsies themselves, as well as the placement of the 'clip' to enable the surgeon to easily find the area, I felt absolutely no pain. I was told by Dr. Swami that I must have a 'very high pain threshold', but I prefer to think that the lack of pain was mostly due to her expertise at her job.
I found Dr. Swami to be very professional yet very warm, very thorough, yet very easy to talk to, very concerned about my welfare, and extremely adept at answering any question that I posed.
Since my 'tumor' is small, only 4mm, I asked during the procedure if this was one of the smallest things that Dr. Swami has every biopsied, and I was told that she even tackles calcifications, which are about the size of a grain of rice.
I can not say enough good about Dr. Swami, and were I to have to undergo this procedure again, I would definitely request her, and will recommend her to anyone that I know who has to undergo the same procedure. Excellent and very caring physician who made a difficult procedure a piece of cake, at least for her patient.

OMG! this hospital is the best. I love the security they have for the maternity ward. I love that they have a locked door and that a person has to push a button and state the reason why they are there before they can get in.The nurses are really helpful and very nice, case in point when I first arrived and was put into my room I had a contraction and it hurt really really bad I was screaming and the nurse helped me through it and taught me how to breathe because I didn't take lamaze class. She was sooo nice it was like we knew each other for years and she was my closest friend helping me through my labor.I appreciate her for helping me and holding my hand and comforting me when I needed it.The service over all is the best I have ever seen or experienced in my life so far.I highly recommend this hospital for anyone who is going to have a baby or has to stay for a long period of time because they have great service.
