Poor excuse for hospital! Had I trusted them with their diagnosis for my son at 2 yrs old, not sure he'd be with us today and grown into the 19 year old brilliant very handsome young man who was a 2018 graduate from C'burg High School with Honors! He's now preparing for the next chapter in his life...Jacksonville State, here he comes! My son could have even had brain damage had we listened to the undereducated staff in that ER! After they argued for almost a hour with his dad and I, that we WEREN'T taking HIM anywhere after we informed and Stated to them WE wanted to and WERE taking him to Children's Hospital in B'ham. They told us his CAT Scan showed bleeding on his brain! The very heart wrenching words that's ONE of a parent's biggest fears and nightmare! Long story short, our son's pediatrician, Dr Robert Grey whom we love so much to this very day, gave THEM ORDERS to LET US GO, via transport by Ambulance! Dr Grey we still thank God for bc had it NOT been for God and that precious man the outcome WOULD have been catastrophic bc after Children's performed another CAT and compared it to that mangie poor excuse for drs and surgical team that was bam up in our face trying to take our son to the operating room, Children's found absolutely nothing wrong with our son from either CATscan! The lady Dr who was treating him at Children's called his father and I into a private conference room. First words that came out of her mouth was "Mr&Mrs..--- i want to first ASSURE you both there is ABSOLUTELY NOTHING WRONG WITH YOUR SON! HE'S VERY WELL & HEALTHY!! THOSE WORDS I'll NEVER forget and the BLESSED feeling of RELIEF in my heart and soul! I sat there crying as I thanked God and the Dr who knew exactly what she was talking about
She continued to explain WHAT had happened at Coosa Valley and it was just completely UNBELIEVABLE WHAT we heard!!! She said in pediatric CATscans they CANNOT be READ as an ADULT'S would be read and if our son HAD been an adult THEIR diagnosis may have POSSIBLY been correct however, HE WAS ONLY 2 years old and it showed that he was absolutely WELL and FINE!! I can't put into words what Coosa Valley put us ALL through that very scary day but i can assure everyone I'll NVR TRUST THEM! Id advise against trusting THEM with your pet!!! I'll continue to share our nightmare THERE which had a VERY happy ending once we were at Children's Hospital!!! My word of WARNING IS BEWARE allowing THEM to operate on your loved ones WITHOUT getting a SECOND OPINION!! God bless Dr Grey, the lady Dr in B'ham, our amazing son, AND God Bless You All!
