Normally I have had a good exeperience with this establishment. However, today I went in there this morning with a 3 day migraine and let them know what cocktail has always worked in the past. Which is imitrex. Phenegren, a steroid and dilaudid. He absolutely refused to give me the dilaudid with the cocktail or Nubane for that matter because he doesn’t prescribe narcotics for migraine and that it is not part of treating migraines due to rebound headaches. Now I realize it is not part of treating a migraines in the doctors manuals but the whole point of asking for that cocktail was so it would knock me out and I could sleep off the migraine. I left feeling very frustrated and like I was a druggie for asking. I’ve been dealing with migraines now for 3 yrs. I know my body and know what works. I spent 250.00 for the same thing that I had been doing at home besides the steroid. What a waste of money and time. Btw I was prescribe floricet which is basically caffeine and acetaminophen which my neurologist doesn’t want me taking because of rebound headaches. So yes I’m very upset and disappointed.
My ER visit was quick and I was admitted for pneumonia and the entire staff of nurses and doctors have been wonderful.
GREAT STAFF, GREAT LOCATION, HELPFUL AND RESPECTFUL, DR. PETER LITCHFIELD AND NURSE SHERYL WENT ABOVE AND BEYOND FOR ME
Usually I have terrible experiences at this hospital, that’s why I have three stars, but today was different. I didn’t catch the doctor’s name but she had longer dark hair and glasses. She was absolutely wonderful. I went in because I have worsening hand foot and mouth disease in my throat, mouth, and nose. It is extremely painful and I cannot eat or drink without excruciating pain. This doctor came and got me from waiting because the nurse was busy. She took me back and listened carefully to me and my complaints. She prescribed something to coat my mouth so I could eat and pain medicine that would be more sufficient for my situation. She treated me like a patient. I had been to an NP and Urgent care and neither wanted to treat my symptoms. The virus lasts just a few days to a week for children, but I’m going on two weeks. She explained its different in adults and that she isn’t sure how long it will last and warned me of complications that could arise which NEITHER of the others did for me. I’m just so thankful for her at this time, she was amazing.
Was treated by the rns horrible on day shig bu there weda fee nice ones
