feedback about Forrest General Hospital
Sitting here in the er now. Been here almost 3 and a half hours and all they have done is run an iv and check blood pressure. Was told 3 hours ago they would bring pain medication, staff seems very friendly but the speed at which things get done around here is laughable at best.
Some of the staff were very nice but the hospital inside look like a trash box in need of a good cleaning
I had a terrible experience at The Professional Enhancement Program (PEP). It is part of Pine Grove which is a division of Forrest General. Though Pine Grove has a drug rehab, they do not use evidence based medical therapy for opioid addiction. On the other hand they treat sexual disorders as addiction, which is not evidence based. There isn't even a DSM5 diagnosis for "sexual addiction". In other words, the place isn't committed evidence based medicine.
My experience turned into a nightmare. I transferred out in Jan.2017. During the transfer I contacted the patient advocate. I had been given the "sex addiction" label and wanted it removed. As mentioned, it's not a DSM-5 diagnosis. My complaint simply went back to my therapist, Dr.Bennett, who wouldn't remove it.
I got retested at a facility unaffiliated with a sex rehab.. You guessed it...no sexual compulsion or addiction. PEP almost drove me over the edge, even insinuating I would end up in jail. They used poorly worded polygraph questions to confirm their hypothesis. The worst was " have you ever had a fantasy about a patient"? How can a person say they have never done something? I didn't know up from down...I was going insane. Bad science and polygraph are a dangerous combination.
Much of my therapy after leaving centered around what occurred at PEP. Though still troubled by the experience, my life instantly improved when I left. May of 2019 will mark 6 years of sobriety. I've not gone to jail. In fact, I was made department chair in 2018 and expect to serve again. I feel an obligation to warn others about the PEP program. I wrote a more thorough review in Pine Groves google page.
Instead of treating my 5 yr old daughter for ear ache they preached to my wife about driving in the rain good thing daddy wasn't there mom to easy going I will be there next time for sure
Billing department has no knowledge of what anyone is billed for when asked for a "detailed" explanation of what was done all they give is what doctors were used and the amount owed. DO NOT PAY THEM A DIME FOR ANYTHING THAT YOU OWE! Force them to give details about what procedures and treatment was done. We had a bill for chapstick at a cost of $35 for 1 tube. NO WONDER INSURANCE IS SO EXPENSIVE THIS HOSPITAL HAS A SCAM RUNNING!
