My dad is older was in for surgery - it went fine, competent skilled doctors. The post op care was VERY spotty -- some nurses cared, some didn't. He's an older fellow and when the nurses are snide, you can see that thing that monitors his heart go erratic. I truly believe the mediocre care prolonged his recovery time from 2 weeks initial estimate to 6 weeks and counting (meanwhile we're still paying). We finally ended up paying for a nurses aid (can order thru the hospital for ~$200/day) - we should have done this sooner during the crucial first week, but we expected better care from the hospital. (or have friends and family there, simple things like holding the cup with the straw).
For weeks he was fully instrumented so whenever there was some emergency, all the skilled doctors, full nurses, and students would show up, otherwise, it was push the button and wait, and wait. One plus is that he had no bedsores. Otherwise, he's had two infections (minor) but they slow his recovery. Also, the nurses kept on switching. For example, I noticed the start of an infection on his back at some stitches (when they turned him), and I told three different nurses on three different days who said to the effect "oh yeah, I'll tell the doctor". The first day I saw it, it really seemed a matter of smearing some Neosporin on in. I really have no idea when the information got to the doctor. Turns out they couple days later had to re-open the stitches and drain it out then re-stitch. That said, some shifts, the nurses were SO nice, very competent, seemed like they read the charts, and passed on relevant information to the doctors (who also seemed to keep switching)

Pros: seem to have some sharp doctors and nurses and a lot of equipment

Cons: shift to shift don't know if you'll get a good nurse or a nurse with an attitude

this doctor is a very uncaring person when you go for an appointment he never seems to answer your questions. The people in his office are also not very friendly
