feedback about Carney Hospital
If you're going there for mental health issues DON'T. Especially if its an emergency. Their BEST team is actually Bay Cove and based out of BMC the people that 'assess' you aren't anything more than sales reps. They only want to get you moved into one of their facilities. Emergency dept. for some reason refuses to call the psychiatrists that are IN the Carney. I assume, because they're a different group, SMG. This is criminal as it's putting the $ before the patient.
Also by signing discharge forms you agree that: "I understand that the emergency care i received is not intended to be complete and definitive medical care and treatment."
So if you need a band-aid or some water. Emergency Dept. is the place to go.
Takes a whole month to see your PCP in this hospital. In a month Sickness either cure on its own or get too bad you end up in ER. Plus the nurse will never call you back for any of your medical concerns.
My biggest mistake to switch to this hospital
Their ER is horrible, they literally don’t do anything, going to them is a waste. They will literally do nothing, dismisses the patient who is still suffering from the problem.
Update: their primary care is awful too. The nurses don’t get back to you if you leave a message (which is basically the only method of communication), don’t make you aware if they are giving or changing medications. Are generally rude and condescending to patients.
I would give Carney zero stars if it was possible
Dr Tello was my father’s and my PCP at Carney Hospital. I am a nurse and when I had blood pressure concerns about my VERY active and capable father, he did not address them despite multiple visits and notes from other doctors with documented BP 200/100. Dr Tello stated that he has a lot of patients that come to him with high readings and that they are wrong yet documented that my dad’s blood pressure was 160/110 and that he wanted to increase his metoprolol. HE NEVER WROTE AN ORDER TO INCREASE THE METOPROLOL but ordered the same dose. After years of my father reporting high blood pressure readings to dr Tello, he didn’t simply refer my father to a cardiologist, didn’t listen to his concerns, AND MY FATHER DIED OF A HEART ATTACK suddenly at 70. That rarely happens because by that age, a doctor should have ordered the tests needed to look at his heart better. I never would have expected that his PCP neglected to ever check his pulse, nevermind EKG, BASICS! Please, if your loved one goes to doctor Tello, change doctors immediately and do not think about sending your loved one to him. He spoke about his personal life with my dad, his wife leaving him, and my dad was not comfortable with this. My dad mentioned that dr Tello as not impressed with his weight loss 3 weeks prior to his sudden death, and he thought it might have been bc he dr Tello didn’t think my dad was empathetic enough at his last appointment. What kind of doctor talks about how their wife unknowingly planned to leave you for years and take all your money?? It’s so incredibly sad that my dad was cared for by this man who I thought I could trust to help my dad live a long life. This could have been prevented and Carney Hospital should consider the reputation that Doctor Tello is giving them. I know I will make sure that no one has to go through what I have, losing my father to a preventable condition. I will make sure that Doctor Tello can not hurt anymore patients with his carelessness. My physical exam appointments with doctor Tello consisted of him asking me how I was doing and then sending me on my way. This is not patient centered care.
Speedy Service I get in and get out withing two hours, but if your looking for an upscale Hospital Boston medical is the way to go, but if you do not have the patience to wait long Carney is the number one choice
