This place is full of nothing but the most incompetent people. It needs to be under investigation.
I could only give them a 1 star if I had the option to go lower I would. I took my spouse here because her blood pressure was high. They gave her a dose of meds to bring it down which it came down some. Gave her more of the same meds to bring it down more. This whole time we were telling them that her BP is never in the normal range. They gave her a pill to help get it lower. It get to a good range for her. And she was feeling a lot better. Next thing they came back in and gave her more of the first meds. Her BP got to like 122/69. So they released her. We got home and her BP bottomed out and she passed out. I called the ambulance so now we are in Huntsville Hospital. Huntsville is trying to find out why it all started.
Don't go to highlands. They will try and kill you.
Was seen by Paul A Avenel MD and was completely disrespected by him. We are stationed at an Active Duty Air Force base in New Mexico where our primary care physician is and was unable to get care for my 5 month old son anywhere local because military insurance requires a referral for outside care. As our only option would be the ER so of course we put it off because that is a last resort situation. Our son was reading a 102° fever and getting worse . He looked very weak so we took him in to the ER and waited around 30 min which isn't bad. We were walked back into the waiting room and the doctor came in shortly after and he immediately told us that there was nothing wrong with him and this was not an ER worthy visit and that it probably wasn't even a PCP visit (primary care) but I've already wrote you a script because I know that's all you want. He left the room and the nurses came in and swabbed him for some tests and they came back in a while later and told us he had an ear infection. The doctor never did come back in and hes lucky he did not. Long story short, do not give this hospital the time of day or your money. I'd rather bleed out than go back there, kudos to the staff though. They were friendly
This "hospital" should have NO STARS! It's literally a joke, my mother was literally od'ing in the hospital and they treated her like garbage! Ignored all my questions, were completely rude to me, and left her without any supervision for hours. THE STAFF IS CLEARLY IGNORANT AND UNEDUCATED and does NOT care about any patient in their ER. This hospital should be shut down.
Emergency room is the worst won't ever go there again ,but the nurses on 5 thfloor was amazing to me ,could not ask for better care seemed like they knew more than the Dr there
