Took my eleven year old to the ER on February 7. We got there before 12:21 AM and did not see a doctor until 2:30 AM (the pediatric ER doctor goes home at 10:30 PM so don't expect a specialist if you have a child). She had been complaining of stomach pains on and off all day and I was beginning to worry that she might have appendicitis or the flu. Before I get into more detail, I want to say the nurses who took care of my child were kind, professional and courteous. When we finally saw a doctor, he asked me for the date of her last period. I told him that she was eleven and had not even started yet. After a cursory examination, he "diagnosed" my child with period pain. When I protested, he said, "We'll know in two weeks." They took blood and put my child in a bed. We stayed there until about 5:30 AM when we were told we could go. When the nurse took my child's temperature one last time, she had a fever and then proceeded to throw up. There was no return visit from the doctor. No flu swab (this was during the height of flu season). No revision to his diagnosis. Later that day, I took my child to the pediatrician who diagnosed her with a virus or the flu (she tested negative at that time but others in the house fell ill that same week and tested positive for flu). The pediatrician scoffed at the ER doctor's "diagnosis". I'm disgusted that the ER doctor billed us $1700 for his "services". I wish I could bill that much for being wrong. My child has still has not started a period.
