feedback about Carlinville Area Hospital
The only reason I'm raiting this joke of a hospital at all was so I could complain. My fiance has been here for almost 3 hours now and still sitting in triage. This is a joke. What hospital has only one doctor. Im filing complaints
I saw Dr. Rodriguez-Frias on 3/16/18. He wrote me a Rx and I ended up needing a pre-authorization for the medication which took 2 weeks for the Drs office to get it submitted. Once turned in it was denied since it's a new med and I hadn't been on any previous medications for this problem before. That's all fine and dandy but here we are at one month after my office visit and they hadn't even bothered to contact me or submit an Rx for another drug that was covered. Needless to say I am still in pain and still without meds. Who does that? Where is the patient care? Are we managing appointments or patients? If you can't even be bothered to reach out to the patient to ensure they get treated what kind of care should I expect for my scheduled colonoscopy in June? Forget you, I will find another Gastroenterology for that.
This place is horrible. They don't know what's what that has to deal with anything medical related. I went in there back in December cause I was having stomach pains. All they said was that it was constipation. So they gave me a laxative. Went back a couple weeks ago cause I was having a severe panic attack and the nurse was sooo not nice about poking me with a needle and they said the xrays came back as nothing was wrong and that I was constipated again. However, constipation doesn't normally cause you to vomit every time you eat and have severe stomach pains. Especially if it was just mild constipation. What they failed to realize is that I had gallbladder issues. I went to a different hospital and they pinpointed my stomach issues and removed my gallbladder. Carlinville Area Hospital doesn't know jack squat. The emergency staff isn't all that friendly. All they care about is not having to do anything. I've had bad experience with them before hand a few times and I refuse to go back to that hospital. I wouldn't recommend that hospital to even my worst enemy.
The staff is warm helpful and waiting time is minimal.very clean and easy accessible
