I have went to this ER several times in the past as well as know friends and family that have. We all had the same experience of waiting a long time regardless of how busy they where as well as poor service. Not to mention the nurses care more than the doctors who act like they hate their jobs. I would drive the extra 20 minutes to another emergency room if I could make it. They need better bedside manners and or management.
I arrived at the ER with 2 people ahead of me. Was seen within 10 minutes and given pain meds and sent to x-rays very quickly. Treated very professional and updated along the process. The Nurses were awesome and ER Dr took the time to explain my diagnosis. I was impressed by the service.
Dr was rude and when I refused an EKG becuase I was in there for sinus congestion he asked me what my experience was and then made a snide remark about my experience must be more than his. Then he turned around and stormed out of the curtain divider and told the nurse to get discharge papers. He refused to treat me becuase I wouldn't get an EKG and asked for ANTIBIOTICS not pain meds. This hospital is a joke and I will be making sure a thorough investigation by public department of health and CMS and whoever else I can. This is unacceptable in a hospital!
The Dr assumed i was lying because of my pain issues. I went there for a rash. He told me since I lied he wasn't gonna treat my rash or my pain. I started crying and asked to leave. He called security on me. I got taken down, handcuffed and arrested. I have a disease where i dislocate easily. I raised my arms in fear and explained that to security but they took me down anyway. This opiate epidemic has put drs in fear, stressed them out and patients are paying the price.
Either hire a staff that wants to work in this field, instead of working on their wigs, and fingernails, or burn the building to the ground and open a fast food restaurant. You could hire the same staff for the restaurant, they'd be better suited selling French fries.
