feedback about Aurora Memorial Hospital Burlington
Went to the Burlington ER two years ago. After waiting forty minutes I was brought into the hallway and placed on a gurney and that was where I was “treated”. They told me they were too busy for me to have a room. They sent me home with a diagnoses of an urinary tract infection. I went to St. Lukes the same day and they admitted me and found that I had seizures.
I thought I would give the Burlington Hospital another try as they are close. BIG MISTAKE.
I was in horrible pain, 8/10. They took blood and got me prepped for an IV. I waited for two hours and when I had enough, I got up and said I was going to go. The front desk lady could have cared less about my request and told the triage woman to take my IV out and discharge me. When the triage lady tried to convince me to stay, the front desk lady said “she wants to go, let it go” real flippantly.
So, I am now going to go to another ER, drive 45 minutes in pain just to avoid the Burlington Hospital at all costs. Aurora, keep it up!
Noone here is knowledgable on medicine, synapse reaction, or anything of the sort.
If you read the other reviews you will see that there is an extreme lack of care for people in pain. I suffered for years with horrible pain in my back and I was under the "care" of Dr.Schmidt who originally did a MRI and diagnosed me with degenerative disc disease. Dr. Schmidt is not a specialist he is a general family doctor thus he is not qualified to treat a disorder like mine. He refused to refer me to a specialist he refused to listen to the words that were coming from my mouth and kept telling me that I just needed physical therapy. If he bothered to research my condition if he bothered to listen to me he would have known that what he wanted me to do was not in my best interests. He refused to give me anything for pain even after two years of trying his "conservative approach". Now you may wonder why I didnt go to another doctor and there is a simple answer to that. Once you get a "treatment" plan from one doctor if you dont follow through with it before going to another doctor they instantly accuse you of doctor hopping trying to get pain meds. So after two years of his approach the pain was so bad I could barley walk. I couldnt sleep and in general couldnt function on a day to day basis. I told him all this and said that we need to do another MRI cause something has gone wrong. He said to me "I am not doing another MRI we just did one two years ago" I said "with my condition you dont think anything could have happened in the last two years" He then agreed to do an x-ray. A x-ray wont show anything with the discs in your back. He then informed me that I needed to go to physical therapy and wouldnt do anything else. He still wouldnt give me a referral to a specialist. Some time passes and I go back in with so much pain I can no longer function. I begged him for something for the pain so I could at least sleep and I will never forget what he said to me "I am not giving any pain medication to you because people just abuse it or sell it". I have a history of extreme pain and he accuses me of being a drug addict or a drug dealer. I only asked him for 15 tablets a month so I could sleep how can anyone abuse that and what kind of financial gain could one expect from that? It was at that point I went to another doctor and they could see right away that I was suffering and ordered a MRI and other tests. unfortunately for me that doctor left Aurora right after and then shortly after that my body gave up and I collapsed onto the floor. I was hauled into the emergency room and they transferred me to Summit where there are specialists. They were all shocked by what they saw I had multiple herniated dics and my SI joint was collapsed onto the nerve channels that run down my legs. I was in the hospital for a week from this and because of how long I suffered with this permanent damage was done. I was also informed that I was right with not doing the therapy Schmidt insisted I do cause it could have disabled me. After I got out I looked for legal help for medical negligence. No lawyer would help me because of the laws Wisconsin has in place. It is almost impossible to sue a doctor in Wisconsin and even harder to win. The laws are set up to protect the doctors thus giving them the right to play god and get away with anything. I then went to Aurora themselves and filed a claim which they sent to there "insurance" carrier. After the "investigation" it was found that Schmidt gave me an "acceptable standard of care". If what I got was the standard of care then the entire medical system in Wisconsin should be indited. I continued to email them asking for this to be settled in a way that was fair for everyone and what did they do? They called the police on me,on me! They are criminals and they call the police on me! In this country everyone has the right to medical treatment and in this country torture along with cruel and unusual punishment is illegal. Well I didnt receive proper medical treatment and I was tortured. This is who Aurora has working for them and this is their standard of care.
Very disappointed in Memorial hospital and how they treat mental health patients anyone with PTSD or anxiety issues should not see Dr. Patel she is unprofessional will not return your phone calls will not prescribe prescriptions she refuses to allow her nurse to call you back . I find her behavior disgusting 2018 women are supposed help Women in issues that male doctors will not but this doctor is frigid has zero compassion in fact I went seven days without a prescription for a phone call as to why my medication was not being prescribed to me she is a poor excuse of a doctor I should go work at Taco Bell
In the area for concert at alpine valley. Fractured my leg, had superb care from beginning to end!
