I went to this hospital’s emergency room for chest pains and dizziness. Because I had a history of CAD (Coronary artery disease) I was admitted for observation. I have had chest pains for close to 10 years but I didn’t think I was having any heart issues. I also complained of pain in my right ear and right side of my face.I was given an EKG, blood was taken and I was placed on s heart monitor. After ruling out any heart or lung issues that was it. They were ready to discharge me. Never mind the fact I was still dizzy and had pain on the right side of my face. They never even bothered to look in my ear. I got frustrated and ended up leaving AMA (against medical advice)They assign patients to a team of doctors and medical students studying one area. In my case cardio vascular and is that all they look at.Still dizzy, still having chest pains!!!!

On December 23,2017 I deliver my child at downstate hospital. Labor and delivery nurses and doctors were so nasty and rude. While having contractions at 2 centimeters they were planning on sending me home, whitin 30 minuets I was at 7 centimeters and still on the triage bed. 5 minuets later I was 9 centimeters still in a triage bed. This was my fist child and the nurses would of love to make me think I wasn’t in labor, however I knew I was. Then the head doctor shows up with the biggest attitude, I can’t even tell you his name cause he never spoke, he just had his hands on his hip looking at me like I was the grinch that stole Christmas. If your having a baby don’t go to Downstate it was a horrible experience.
