Physical Therapy department is the greatest! The care shown to me was awesome! Very friendly & fun therapist to work with.
I am from Texas. I dontd have a Dr here. So I had to go to the er. I went Saturday night and the Dr was amazing. He said if I didn't get better to come back. I went back tTuesda night and the Dr was the WORST. .. He stood at the door, never looked at me. He talked at me not to me. It was the Worst experience ever. He sent me home still in pain. The nurses are nice and good but OMG Dr Lex Mahler is the WORST.! !! !
This is a bullet wound and Band-Aid hospital, meaning, if you need patching up, it will more than suffice. If it's life or death, keep driving to Meridian or Mobile. My mother went with a severe case of what was later diagnosed with pneumonia. The ER doctor on call told her she had the common cold and she would be better within 7-10 days. He told her there was nothing he could do for her. She was having trouble breathing all night, so she went to the doctor in the morning (this ER trip was on a Sunday night) and her pulse oxygen level was in the 80's and she was extremely ill. The problem with this hospital is that it is a remote outpost in a tiny town. Doctor's get shuffled about and shipped in on call from Mobile, Birmingham...you never know what quality of healthcare you are going to get. There are some great nurses, but it's a gamble using this hospital for anything life-threatening, and a dangerous one at that.
My 18 year old son fell down a 20 foot cliff after 8 weeks of having his tendons and ligaments reattached in his ankle. His ankle was swelled 3 times the normal size and he was screaming in pain. I was in Clarke County with his insurance card. They sat him in the waiting room and REFUSED to allow him to see a doctor before I got there with his insurance card. I called and tried to give them the number over the phone and told her I was on my way with the card. She still refused to allow him to be seen before she had the insurance card. After driving an hour to get there she told me she had two ambulances pull in after my son got there and it could be up to 3 hours before they got him back. I put him in my car and drove him to Grove Hill Memorial Hospital and got service with a smile.
I would only go to this very small hospital for minor things. They are ill equipped for trauma. Go to meridian if your life is in danger...
