“Nurses were very kind. Excellent service – everything at the Meadowlands Hospital was perfect. Many thanks.”
— Mirna C., Meadowlands Hospital Ambulatory Services Patient, November 2017
“The morning of my surgery, we were properly greeted and waited on – we were made very comfortable. My son commented on how clean the hospital was…I would like to take this time to commend, bless and praise the anesthesiologist Shanon Kleinman who inserted my line. I am petrified of needles – only once in my life did I have a pleasant IV experience now I have a second positive experience! Dr. Kleinman had the most peaceful disposition and manner about him! His bedside manner and expertise are beyond compare! I know that Dr. Vagmin Vora and the staff were doing their jobs but we were made to feel as if we were special! Everybody made my surgery personal! I am very, very pleased with the care and attention I received during my stay at the Meadowlands Hospital – the staff over extended themselves in all ways. They thought of everything and made sure we did too!”
