Metropolitan Hospital
I had foot surgery here, and the surgery…I had foot surgery here, and the surgery room was impeccably (clean). My son whom has Transverse Myelitis (a rare neurological condition - https://vimeo.com/21806274 ), some doctors never heard of sadly enough. Many doctors do not know the symptoms of TM, nor how to treat it. At this particular hospital they either knew, or found out while my son was there - whatever the case, they treated my son for his symptoms. The care was great. The doctors, nurses, and staff were professional, kind, good listeners, and knowledgeable. My son did not have to wait very long to see a doctor. The nurses and staff kept checking up on him. The ER was very clean. My son (TM symptoms) and I (with foot surgery)l got TOP NOTCH CARE HERE.

MedRite Urgent Care - Eastside
The doctor was attentive and accountable, but the tendency for whoever answers the phone to lie to you to make you go away is fairly unacceptable. On Friday, the physician told me he would request that my lab results be put in priority, and told me to call back on Sunday for results. I did, and the receptionist told me I'd have to wait 3-5 business days. The doctor called me back on Monday morning and left me a voicemail telling me the results were in and to call him back for results. When I called back a few hours later, the receptionist again lied to me and said the labs weren't in yet. The physicians here seem fine, but they need to get new staff up front ASAP.

NYC Podiatry Center of Excellence
"I was diagnosed with an infection of plantar warts. I asked around and a few of my coworkers recommended NYC Podiatry Center. The doctor that saw me was very nice and his staff was courteous and timely. I had to go for a few repeat procedures - thankfully the warts were successfully removed. I give these foot doctors thumbs up!

Tips & Advices
Academic medical centers provide the widest range of specialty care treatments, including the latest technological advances, clinical trials, and surgical techniques. In general, an academic medical center is a better choice than a community hospital for complicated treatments or rare diseases. Pediatric intensive care, especially, is usually performed at academic medical centers.
Academic medical centers offer a broad range of specialized services, from allergists to urologists. Some of the larger medical centers have entire hospitals or clinics focused on a particular medical service, such as cancer treatment, though specialties vary among the centers. Patients whose community hospital or local doctors do not have the facilities or expertise to address complex medical conditions can be referred by their primary care physician or local specialist to a major medical center (there are more than a dozen in the United States).
Yes. In addition to their inpatient hospital services, medical centers can offer a wide variety of outpatient services, such as pain clinics, rehabilitation centers, surgery, imaging and laboratory, mental health treatment, and outpatient cancer treatment. Medical groups – doctors in private practice but affiliated with the medical center--will also have offices within the medical center.
Physicians, nurses, physician’s assistants, residents, and attending physicians makeup the clinical staff of an academic medical center.
Medical center accreditation is not required, but most centers work voluntarily toward accreditation because it represents higher standards of healthcare quality and patient safety.
