feedback about Broward Health Imperial Point
Very unprofessional hospital. I question their competency. I was admitted through the ER and spent several days as an inpatient. Several tests were performed in an effort to diagnose my illness. I was discharged and told that I was suffering from Viral Syndrone. Once home, my condition worsened. I went to another hospital and again was admitted through the ER. Tests were once again performed, many of the same tests I had at Imperial Point. One of the tests revealed that I was suffering from a Liver Abscess which was infected with sepsis. How could Imperial point have missed this ? The performed the same tests that the second hospital did. I am in the process of changing all of my doctors that have privileges at Imperial Point over to doctors that have privileges at the hospital that correctly diagnosed by issue.
While on vacation my husband became ill and was transported to the hospital on 10/6. The emergency room staff and, once admitted, the staff on the floor (room 424) were excellent. The care, concern and communication was exceptional. I also want to commend Dr. Monica Shah for her care. She kept us updated to the point of giving us her cell Phone number so we could contact her with any questions. Because of her efforts and accessibility she saved us hundreds on a prescription by contacting the insurance company.
While a hospital stay is not what one wants while on vacation. I whole heartily recommend this facility and staff.
Went to the ER 11 months ago and had a GREAT experience! Was checked in at the ER, then about 5 minutes later was taken to an exam room. A short wait brought an attentive doctor who actually listened, and I was treated and on my way in probably an hour, total. I realize that had there been several medical emergencies rolling in while I was there it could have taken VERY much longer at each stage, so I did go at what turned out to be an opportune time. I had caring staff and no problems with snarky, mean or unprofessional staff at any point of my visit. When we are ill and in pain we may be short-tempered and cranky ourselves, and often people will respond to being treated badly by returning the favor, so maybe some of the many complaints about staff reflect that.
I want to sue this hospital, and honestly might The female ER doctor didn't even look at what was wrong with me. Dismissed me as hallucinating, meanwhile I had things crawling out of my skin. A real-life nightmare. After causing a scene, someone else truly looked and was horrified. ONLY then did i get treatment. The Dr. never went over what to expect or honestly perform any professional behavior, or spoke to me again. I have document proof of my condition from another (better) hospital, that I have handed to my laywer. This is the poorest excuse for medical care I have even seen. I would rather go to bum living behind a dumpster for medical care then step in that ER again. The female Dr should have her licence taken away.
Amanda Minnocci PA-C in the ER, WORST BEDSIDE MANNER EVER. "I'm not going to lose my lisence over you" - an incredibly rude, final statement made by Minnocci this evening after I reluctantly visisted Imperial Point ER seeking urgent care on Thanksgiving holiday for severe, debilitating shoulder and neck pain. On Thanksgiving Day I sought out an Urgent Care Dr. at the MD Now who thankfully prescribed for me 2 days of perscription pain relief and advised me to follow up with the ER if conditions worsened. I was bed ridden and my pain was under some control for 2 days with the pain medicine.
After the two day course of pain relief and bed rest with heat therapy showed no improvement, I brought my MRI referral to the ER and hoped to get some quicker answers ad to what's was causing the pain. My symptoms had quickly worsened, with constant throbbing in arm, muscles getting weaker, blood supply lowering, numbness and reflexes not right, nausea and lightheadedness.
Amanda Minnocci ordered me a CT scan and Xray, after advising me that only an MRI would truly allow us to see the problen. She then said she could not find the cause of the problem in the CT scan (duh, because you cant particularly see herniated discs in a CT scan). She then sent me home with prednisone for pain relief (something I take for allergy and sinus relief). When I asked her if she would kindly consider refilling another 2 days or so of pain medicine so that I could get through the holiday weekend and in to see a specialist, she made up a list of excuses why I would not be able to pick up a controlled substance (???) and she finally admitted she just didnt want to prescribe me a controlled substance because she was not going to "lose her lisence over me." Seriously? Prescribing a patient in debilitating pain, and no prior usage of pain killers, is going to make you lose your license? I'm not a fool. I was profiled, and used charged for an unnecessary services.
Young Adults: Do not go to this ER if you truly need help or are in pain. You will be profiled, no matter how polite or intelligent or IN PAIN you are. If you are younger, be prepared to be treated like an irresponsible drug seeker.
On another note:
BEST operative care! My preopt nurses were fantastic, each one: Susette, Barbara, and Jodi. I CRIED on their shoulderd they took such good care of me. THANK YOU for restoring my faith in good caretakers.
