When you try to make an appointment, they tell you that the next one available is 3 months out. Should you have a serious illness, or any symptoms that increase and may be time-sensitive, I strongly suggest... more that you visit another hospital. This one couldn't care less if you live or die.
Queue for the doctor on Friday-Saturday night was over 7 hours and nurses wouldn't give me any pain medication for severe stomach pains. Nurses were busy in the coffee room and no one asked how I felt... more or if I needed anything. 1/5 stars
I went to PMU again the next day and suddenly I was given pain meds and taken to a private room where I had blood tests done and heart monitored. Nurses and doctors were kind and professional there. 5/5 stars
Update: I had an inflammated appendix and it was removed in a surgery some time after I got back into my home country.
