MAINE GENERAL IS A DEATH TRAP!! YOU WILL DIE HERE WITHOUT EVER SEEING A DOCTOR!! So I was at this hospital for the first time last night. I'm on vacation from new jersey and I got violently ill, non stop vomiting, shortness of breath, dizziness, and a severe pain in my stomach. I swear to god if I could rate this hospital less than one star I would. I was there rolling around in pain, filling up puke bags, and stuck laying on a wooden bench for 3.5 hours. After, being ignored for that long, I managed to drag myself up to the nurses station to ask why it's taking so long. They told me their AVERAGE WAIT TIME IS 8-10 HOURS!! HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE?! There was screaming infants in the waiting room who also had to wait that long. I have never been to a hospital where u need to wait half a day to get seen. DON'T GO HERE YOU WILL DIE IN THE WAITING ROOM AND NEVER SEE AN ACTUAL DOCTOR!!! THIS PLACE IS A DEATH TRAP!!
I would like to commend Dr. Michael J. Isaac, who took care of me in the ICU. He is an outstanding doctor. He was diligent about reporting lab results and always explained their meaning and what they planned to to next. He made things clear. When I didn't understand, he tried again, He also (in retrospect) handled me wisely (and quite firmly) when I insisted on going home. "Don't you know you're in an ICU?", "We have things we have to find out before we can know when you can go home." Eventually It got through to me. But little did I know I was speaking with a member of a team who had saved my life -- from an infection that could have killed me. Thank you, Dr. Isaac.

My daughter got sent here at 5:00pm for a X-ray of her lungs because she chocked on Candy at home and the paramedics wanted to make sure it did not go to her lungs.
Not once was she seen! I am highly disappointed with this hospital!! Anytime I have had to go here I have sat for 6+ hours. I am also pregnant and was sent here at 15 weeks, it took them (at 2am) 3 hours to even get me into a room to be seen when I was in agonizing pain and was sent there because my OB was worried my appendix had burst!!
Worst Maine general ever. The old hospital was better. Waterville is better. Augusta needs to get their sh*t together!
After several ER visits over a couple years with family members it is a minimum of three hours before anything is accomplished. Tonight 5/25/19 is no exception..even worse! Why have a multi-million hospital with a cut rate ER? If possible, go somewhere else is my recommendation.
I got here at 6:29. Was second in line. It's taken over half am hour to get in....ok. so, are you open or not? I see no reason why the wait time for this procedure is so long. Only one person was here before me. I was an inpatient last year and response time was amazing. If you can't handle doing outpatient lab draws at 630 please don't open until your personnel is available to do them. You need at least 2 staffing for this.
