Brought Melinda Gillespie to the er at athol hospital 06/10/2019 around 3pm with severe pains in her stomach as admitted and put into a room. Around 4:30 pm I went and ask what was taking so long for her to be look at? Then I was rudely told the doctor was busy then told that I could not stand out side the room. So I asked her her name told me her first name was Donna and would not give me her last name but said she worked as safety specialist. Asking me what it was for told her told her I will be calling a lawyer. Then asked for the Dr. name which is Dr. Johnson. Went back to the room where Melinda was and waited till 6:00pm still no one came to see what was wrong with her. This hospital has very unethical practices and very rude and low class snobbish staff. We left a little after 6 pm and went to Bay State Franklin Medical where she was treated with respect and dignity. Bay State Franklin Medical is a professional hospital with professional doctors and professional staff that work there.
The way Athol hospital operates and its staff and doctors I have no respect for this institution.
I will never go to this hospital for any reason in the future.
Took my wife in to the ER for treatment at 330 am, nurse Elizabeth Lemcke and dr Even Chik where incredibly rude and snippy and had poor manners towards my wife throughout our short visit even going as far as saying she should have just waited to see her doctor the next day. (Despite being in pain and having a decent fever) Needless to say I will be driving anywhere else but here for an emergency.
Just returned from having a very painful abscess drained, and the doctor(Dr. Spangler) and nurses i had was very nice! Got me in, and took care of me right away. With how embarrassing this was for me, given the location of the abscess, everyone was extremely polite and made my time there comfortable. One nurse who was putting the gauze on after it was lanced kept apologizing, and i told her that it's okay. That I'm thinking about the jokes I'm gonna hear once i get home. Hey.. gotta make the best out of an embarrassing situation hahaha. I would definitely come back here again if needed
My favorite ER! Every time I walk in here I feel like I'm acknowledged immediately. Sometimes by the dr. Themselves! They register us quickly and get us right to a room. I feel like they are thorough, and don't waste a lot of time
Nice nursing staff and reg staff i find a few of the ER doctors to be extremely rude. short and have an extreme lack of bedside manner treated like you are nothing just pestering them like they have more important things to do then be bothered to help you. Sad when nurses are apologizing for complete lack of care or compassion from the doctors. The nurses have a hard enough job without having to make up for dr complete lack of everything.There are great doctors there as well. My rant does not include them all. I will never take my young ones back there again nor myself or any member of my family.
