I went to their ER because earlier the same day I had injured my back and Dr. Cox was the doctor that night and he was the WORST person I had EVER seen! I am a retired nurse of 20 years and I am a chronic pain patient being diagnosed with degenerative disc disease in 1998, I live with a certain amount of pain every day so I KNEW I had injured my back at home and needed to be seen when it kept getting worse. This doctor, all of the nurses on duty AND the "so-called" House Supervisor all treated me like I was some junkie off the streets! I did not receive a proper exam, I got a mild pain pill that I knew would not help me because I know my body and what it takes to help me, no one assessed the effectiveness of that pill and I was very sarcastically offered a catscan, I refused anymore care from these people, they knew I did not have insurance and the quality of care reflected that. All of my years of nursing i NEVER judged a pain patient, I was there to care for them only, the staff here are the most UNPROFESSIONAL I have ever seen and I have told EVERYBODY that I know to avoid this place!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Horrible place do not go here
We had to stop it because it was on the road to Dallas, but not worth it. I should've waited another hour to Waxahachie. Extremely long wait, slow doctors.
i would highly avoid this facility and go a county over for medical treatment. $700 bill for a ten minute visit.
Unbelievable sub-par medical care and the worst diagnosis from a medical facility. I would highly recommend everyone should avoid this facility.
I was taken by ambulance on 7/11/15 due to a fall out of a boat onto a dock. I was fairly certain my leg was broken. I was still in my wet swimsuit when I arrived to the ER. I sat for 5 hours in that wet swimsuit, no offer to provide a hospital gown to be dry and warm. No offer to change the linens since they were wet. Did not have a nurse call button for 2 1/2 hours. I was alone at the hospital for the entire time.
They took x-rays of my leg and said it was just a knee sprain and to follow up with an orthopedist for therapy. When they finally discharged me, they didn't even have crutches for me to get home. I was discharged at 9:30 pm and the closest 24 hour pharmacy was 35 miles away in Palestine to purchase crutches and to get pain med prescription filled.
I saw an orthopedic surgeon two days later and my leg was very badly broken right below the knee.
I will be submitting a complaint to the state medical board about this facility. Thank God I did not listen to their diagnosis and actually try to put weight on my leg. I could have done far more damage to my leg.
Do Not take your loved ones to this hospital!!
