5 out of 5 stars

Oh yes! I certainly highly recommend anyone who has medical issues to seek medical treatment at The Best Hospital in Connecticut and that is Hartford Hospital.

5 out of 5 stars

It was clear that my records had been thoroughly reviewed before I was examined. They also ran a test twice to make sure results were on target. I really felt like I was listened to.

4 out of 5 stars

Very extensive testing of my injured eye. Very impressed. Very professional staff. I left this appointment without an idea of my next steps in repairing my issues with my eye. Was hoping for more clarity. Seems like all the ophthalmologist I have seen _____ to went to pass me to another doctor for treatment due to the work place injury maybe. Not wanting to get involved. IDK. I went to HHC to get the best possible analysis and I'm still unsure on if I will ever be seeing normal again *Dr. Johnson was excellent but I get the feeling that she couldn't help in my situation.

5 out of 5 stars

Dr. gave me a chance to give her some background info and listened! She was not rushed and was very knowledgeable.
