I went to Elmhurst after I jumped 11 garbage cans and skidded into a fried chicken shack. The nurses were some of the coolest chicks I ever took to Inspiration Point.


elmhurst has some great doctors and employees,and they also have some dreadful doctors and employees,it kind of the luck of the draw.Your’e best bet is to have someone assertive there with you to advocate for you.


Elmhurst is a fine hospital. Mt. Sinai related. It’s a no-frills hospital with good care and fine staff.

@Zero need to mention it when more then 95% of the perpetrators fit a certain description. .Hence the mayor’s campaign to end stop and frisk…You simply can not ignore the truth.

Can someone please tell me when there is a crime sometimes the description of the “criminal” will include their race and/or ethnicity and in some cases there is no mention of it? Are the police not allowed to mention it for fear of not being P.C.? After a persons sex, I would think it’s a most valuable identifier in trying to find an alleged criminal….


What is world coming to? Such violence that you cannot even go outdoors without being attacked. I hope the victim makes it & I hope the brute chicken gets caught


I hope they catch him. It’s going to be hard though. That’s kind of a generic look for the Hispanic community.
