My mother was sent here from Oswego Hospital after being diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer. By the time she was admitted into Upstate, she was on a ventilator and was not able to breathe on her own, due to the cancer in her lungs. She was admitted into the MICU unit at Upstate and stayed there 6 weeks. During this time, her care was second to none! The RN's in the MICU unit, Kim, Grace, Steffan, to name a few and every single one of them, were amazing! The care was so personalized, at times I felt as if they were taking care of their own mother! The nursing staff expressed a great deal of compassion for what my mother and her family were going through, which I thought was awesome! The oncology team was also great, her cancer is incurable and very resistant to radiation but they did everything they could for her and laid every option on the table for us! The MICU doctors, in particular Dr. Manta, were excellent at explaining what was going on! Being that I am not educated in the healthcare field, they cannot simply read charts to me and have me comprehend them. Dr. Manta and the rest of the MICU team took as long as necessary to explain the details and made me feel much more informed! The palliative care team treated me very good, I was traveling 45 minutes each way to get there, almost everyday. They gave me fuel cards to ease the financial burden and food cards for their cafeteria/cafe. Normally, I would never eat food at a hospital but I must say, even the cafe is good! Received a substantial discount on parking, which helped A LOT over the course of 34 visits. I cannot comment on the ER or any other branch of the hospital but as for MY experience at Upstate, I will say it was an excellent one! Unfortunately my moms insurance company forced both the hospitals and our hand at making her move to a nursing facility, she is struggling there now. Wish she could have stayed at Upstate, recommend this place for anyone who needs care for a serious ailment!

They don't answer the phone. When they do they can t answer your question so they promise someone will call you back but they do not call. Call neurology again and person answering call cannot answer question. Again she will leave a note for Neurology to call me. Still waiting!!

Really fantastic and fresh seafood. We had the happy hour special (oysters + beer), clams, sea urchin + toast points, ceviche, main course of scallops and the mussels/fettuccine. No desert but they gave us a small dish of tasty pound cake which we enjoyed.Oysters, clams- so fresh! The two apps- good and fun to try, but will be trying other things next time. Really enjoyed both entrees :). Satiating. Tasty, filling, hits the spot type of food. Love it and will be back :)
