Waited 10 months to get my trigger finger fixed. I was finally source out to palmetto health. I was also set detain by the VA police and held in the ER for 16 hrs for something I didn't say. My mental health doctor did not talk to me but just sign off on my detainment. While I was in the ER I was denied medicine for diabetes. I also have a messed up bowel system. I asked for a laxative and was refused. The disrespect add lack of treatment at at this VA is shameful. Watch out if you go to the VA and watch out if you're in the mental health. I am now looking at buying my own insurance because I cannot get treated with respect and cannot be treated in a reasonable amount of time.

Visit with daughter and autistic grandson for appointment and the staff was amazing! They went out of their way to include our 5 yr old gifted wonder who aspires to become a Doctor. Many places are untrained to recognize the autistic child or can just be impatient and rude in their daily routine and could care less about good patient care but at Dorn Medical Center there was an atmosphere from the greeters, lab techs, Medshore transport/ medics to the Doctors of reaching out to make that a Hospital visit maximized and valued for every patient because their patient's are are valued. ( Hoping one day they will feel that value)

After reading many negative reviews about the ER department, I was hesitant to visit. I read of long wait times in excess of 5-6 hours. I read of staff that were indifferent to patients.

I arrived at 10:30 am, and was in X-ray within 20 minutes. After 2 1/2 - 3 hours, I was headed home. In that time, I was X-rayed, triaged, given a cortisone shot, picked up my prescription and was done.

The staff was extremely friendly and professional. First impressions are everything and mine was a good one. I believe that if you treat the staff the way you would like to be treated, they will return the favor. You get out of it, what you put in.

UPDATED: I did make another attempt to go to the ER, this time during normal business hours. I can attest to the fact that patient service is far better during normal business hours then it was after hours. Facility Management needs to address the after hours patient care! (Upgraded from 1 Star to 3 Stars).

This establishment is the epitome of health care facilities. I came here as a veteran that is out of state, away from my primary care. My condition was a potential broken finger, needed confirmation. The two behind the desk, do not communicate that there is one doctor assigned to the ER, they check you in and go back to playing on their phones. Triage nurse gets you back immediately but never asked my about the reading she got for my blood pressure, it was abnormal. All she asked me was one clinical question and told me to go to XRay and then back to the lobby. There are patients literally squirming in their chair from pain. After 2.5 hours I told the girl behind the desk I was not going to wait any longer and asked her to pull my name off the list. It is obvious by the recent reviews and personal experience that this establishment does not care enough about the VA community here to correct their ER situation and potentially add additional staff to see patients in a timely manner. I refuse to return here for any service!!!
