Wait time to get back to a room was ridiculous, over 1.5 hours. When i asked about it i was told all rooms were full. When we finally got called back, 10 min after i asked, we passed multiple empty rooms. Dr was great and everything went fast after we were finally in the room. But for an emergency room they are VERY slow getting people in rooms to see a dr. Only gave 3 stars cuz the dr and nurse were awesome otherwise it would have been 1.

I got sent here from Urgent Care in baxter. I went in with what I assumed to be kidney stone pain. They ran the CT scan and said they hadn't found anything so they went back to the original diagnosis of sciatica. The doc ended up sending me away with a prescription for muscle relaxers after arguing about when I filled my last prescription (he thought the current month was JANUARY. I, under the influence of morphine, politely informed him it is currently FEBRUARY). Today, 2-18, I ended up in urgent care with the same pains. Turns out kidney stones WERE PRESENT on the CT scan, though nobody bothered to inform me of this and actually told me 'the scan came back clear'. I only found out I was correct on assuming kidney stones when the urgent care doctor said it was noted in my chart!? I'll be filing formal complaints on the doctor with the state medical board as soon as possible because this doesnt feel right. Finally on meds to get rid of my kidney stones with absolutely 0 help from st Joe's. Muscle relaxers!? Come on..

Staff was so helpful to get me what I needed. Compassion and bedside manner was the best I have ever seen in an ER! Thanks to the nurses and doctors that helped me get my breathing back to normal today!

About 14 years ago I had a problem I couldn’t keep food down I was in so much pain had blood when I took a dump all they did was give me pain pills and I kept telling them something was wrong they wouldn’t listen to me it took them almost 2 months to admit me I found out a day after they admitted me what was wrong it was my gallbladder I had stones about to go into my liver because the ER couldn’t give me the time of day instead They listed me as a pill head and almost killed me.......
The nurses I had was nice I had a nurse with the British accent I liked her

My mother had cancer they put an IV in her foot they went and pinched it and she jumped off the bed I stood up and was about to hit the nurse in the face I knew right there and then that she had a blood clot they came in and took the IV out and put it somewhere else my mother was telling me to calme down her doctor came in and I laid into him about it and said I am not my mother and you will not be poking her like she is a Guinea pig and I do not want that nurse back in this room I sat in that chair to the end of the shift and went home to sleep.....

After reading all of the reviews; I was extremely skeptical about taking my son into the ER even though it was necessary and recommended. After making the decision to take him - I was extremely pleased with all of the staff. Immediately upon arrival my son was evaluated and taken to his own private room where he was taken care of by wonderful nurses, EKG techs, x-ray techs, lab techs and an amazing doctor too!! I would highly recommend this ER and have no problem taking my children there again!!! Every person in which we interacted with, made our experience extremely pleasant.
