If I could rate zero stars I would,
Came in for severe leg pain(left leg only) at 5 weeks pregnant.
When I went to triage the nurses there where pretty rude and interrupting. But I brushed it off and waited.
Once I got called back they had a doctor come in his name is “doctor D”. Im telling him what medication I was taking and he pulls up WebMD to read me things on pregnancy and medications, as he’s scrolling through his phone reading me exactly word for word what have read before.
At this point I’m fairly uncomfortable, and I tell him where my pain is and the way he touched me made me very uncomfortable, my husband even got up to stand beside him, cause he was also uncomfortable So my husband and I start discussing if we should leave, the lab tech comes in to draw my blood. I told him to stop, and was ignored. My husband finally had to be verbally aggressive and tell him to stop touching me.
I called in the nurse and told her I would no longer be staying at the hospital and would like to leave.
So 20 mins later I’m STILL waiting for my discharge papers, then to make matters worse the doctor came to us in the room in a very aggressive, odd kind of way telling us what a mistake we are making and how he’s the best doctor on this side of the Mississippi, and how he has 25 years of experience, ect which my husband replies “look I don’t mean to hurt your pride, we’d just prefer to be seen elsewhere and DR. D’s reaponse was “it’s okay, you’re the ones making a mistake.” Mean while he really won’t catch a clue and leave the room, he just keeps repeating things and dragging on the conversation.
My husband can hear the nurses at the station taking about us, saying our names, ect. At this point we have still be waiting for discharge papers, finally the guy come in after 30 mins or so, and brings papers. At this point my husband is writing down a statement about how I am leaving against medical advice(basically what the discharge papers would’ve said) on a paper towel because we CAN NOT get out of there! The nurse tries to get me to sign treatment papers, which I refused and said I wasn’t seen so I wasn’t going to sign those! As we leave I stop at the front desk and ask if there is a service number I can call to discuss my visit and the intake lady was super rude and said “I was coming to bring them to you before you decided to leave against medical advice.” And tore off a page and gave it to me. Needless to say I would avoid this hospital, these ridiculous doctors and nurses. I have had family members go and have had a terrible visit. Terrible service. Terrible staff. I figured everyone has bad days so it can’t be that bad. We were definitely wrong about that. Don’t waste your money here, go be seen where they care about you. And bedside manner is a thing.
