Doctors and nurses are really becoming rather rude. Not much empathy for the sick. I heard a staff member in another room going”back and forth” loudly with a patient. Patients just want to be informed. The kindest nurse there, was the nurse who pointed me to the exit.

Horrible experience a few years ago with ER dept. Went in gagging and clearly explained I had been eating steak between gagging....nothing would go down or up! A ten year old could have deducted that I had a piece of steak stuck in my esophagus. Instead, I was drugged with anti-nausea meds to the point that I couldn’t think or talk. (I NEVER claimed to be nauseous !). After a night of X-rays and resting my head on a plastic pillow with no cover on it (the day nurse noticed and helped), I was told that it was probably psychological and they were sending me home. At this point, the med that pretty much made me incoherent had warn off some so I insisted they call GI. Of course, I had steak stuck and they had to perform general surgery! Really! With no medical experience, I could have told them that 15 hours before they drugged me! Horrible experience......incompetent ER doctors.

Went to the hospital with a known problem in need for immediate help. I told them what my problem was prior to them admitting me. They then told me what my problem was (which I already told them) and then they told me they couldn’t help me there. Fantastic service....for a $1,200 medical bill. Next time tell me you can’t help me before you f*** me.

My doctor appointment keeps getting cancelled. Time to move on and hopefully find someone who cares. Very uncaring attitude towards patients. You can tell they don't like there jobs. It is very clear that they hate there jobs. Hate is a strong word. The hospital is worse. Overall a bad place. Do yourself a favor and stay away.

Appalled at the unprofessionalism and medical care. I was taken my ambulance for acute right upper quadrant abdominal pain. The ED doctor was throwing a fit and was extremely aggitated. She was clearly overwhelmed and frustrated. The surgeon basically said the ED doctor (not the same one as I was in ED for about 12 hrs and a new doc came on shift) misdiagnosed me and didn’t know what he was talking about. The surgeon was arrogant and condescending. I have been in the medical field for 38 years and have never been spoken to as if I’m an idiot. I was very insulted by this surgeon. I spent 3 days there between the ED and admission to surgical unit and left without a diagnosis. It is clear he’s not as smart as he thinks he is if he couldn’t diagnose me. The PA and nurses were stellar and the only good thing I can say. They were kind, worked hard and were very helpful. The new part of the hospital was beautiful, clean and comfortable. The private rooms were also very nice. After this experience, regardless of how nice the hospital is or the nurses are, I will never go back to that hospital again. The most important and basic requirement of any hospital is good medical care which includes diagnosis and appropriate treatment-neither of which I received. If I am dying, and the ambulance is driving right past JDH I will tell them to keep driving straight to HH. Can’t wait to see what the bill will be for this sub par service.
Very Dissatisfied Patient.
