    St Joseph's Hospital And Medical Center: "I’ve been waiting for 4 hours now and still haven’t seen a DR" - Gabriel

    St Joseph's Hospital And Medical Center: "The nurses and volunteers very friendly, helpful, and caring. The hospital felt to me I was back in the 1950s lacking modernization. It seemed old and dark. Shortage of staff was also felt very much. Don't want to go back. Prefer Banner University, Tucson Medical Center, and Northwest Hospital. My doctor is an excellent physician. I am grateful for Dr. Sidi." - Heidemarie
