The staff was disrespectful and wouldn't let me be in there to see my newborn child on the monitor and help my future wife with any questions. They let her in and made me and my mom sit in the waiting room. Worst experience here and will not return here ever again!!!! I feel so heartbroken about this situation because of their attitude towards me.
