I’ve only had a few positive experiences here. I’ve been in the emergency room many times in the 10 years I’ve lived in Roanoke. Each time I’ve been there, whether for me or for someone else, I’ve waited in the emergency room waiting area for an average of 6-8 hours before being seen. I understand that it’s a teaching hospital and that they get a lot of uninsured people as patients, but the wait is ridiculous! I’ve been in and out of Lewis Gale, seen, diagnosed, and given care in less time. The only positive experience I had was when I had my gall bladder out and the birth of my son. When I came in an ambulance I had better care and was seen quickly versus walking in. When I was in patient back in 2012, the week before Thanksgiving, I was seen and misdiagnosed with seizures when I didn’t have a seizure and I was unable to drive for 6 months. Also they found 3 aneurysms but didn’t tell me until February of the next year! Talk about patient care ha! Whatever! Not impressed with this hospital nor most of its staff at the hospital!
