Couldn't even get an appointment. Went online to make an appointment. They sent me the paperwork. Filed it out and sent it back. Waited a couple weeks. How long does it take? So I called and the lady just told me I had to wait for them to send something. Eventually I got some junkmail newsletter like I'm already a patient. I haven't even had an appointment yet. Why do we have to wait months to be blown off instead of calling to schedule an appointment or at the front desk? Like any other hospital I've been to.

Here's my nasty experience from MCG (now AU or whatever they will call themselves next): couple years ago (2015) I came to the ER and puking up my guts (I never had stomach problems like that before). Felt like my stomach was turning inside out, literally. They claimed I had the stomach flu. I was sick for three weeks throwing up (that wasn't stomach flu that clears in a week).

About a year later, my arm and leg went numb again when I was out eating, and when I stopped in a store to use the restroom (as again I was sick in my stomach like before, and this time it was even worse), when I came out my leg went numb, and I collapsed. The store called an ambulance and they sent me to MCG/AU again. This time with CLEAR TIA symptoms, they did nothing but give me a nasty potassium drink and discharged me again with a stomach flu.

By morning I KNEW something wasn't right as half my body was pins and needles, and went to University Hospital's Prompt Care. I didn't make it to the desk without them calling for a advanced life support ambulance. Why? On the way to the hospital I HAD MY STROKE!

I learned later it was my second stroke, because the ER visit in 2015 was my FIRST STROKE.

You come in and half your body is numb common sense is something neurological is happening, and you order a CT scan to rule out STROKE. Neither time did MCG/AU do the gold standard diagnostic.

My first stroke was Basilar it could've killed me or turn me into a vegetable. The second stroke was Thalamic/IC. This hospital is a medical school that can't even figure out PCA strokes (what are they teaching them, that you must be blind or half blind to have one???). Yeah, it's a rarer stroke, but if half you're body is numb and puking up your guts, common sense for medicos is to look for STROKE.

TWICE I had a stroke DUE to MCG/AU not properly diagnosing it!

Do I have to teach the doctors the difference between ACA/MCA/PCA strokes even? I have to tell the docs now I have PCA strokes, because it's not a MCA stroke they're familiar with.

Today I walk like a drunk; my vision is snowy; my arm is constantly in pain, all because a simple GOLD STANDARD diagnostic wasn't done to save time and money.

You should be ashamed of yourselves to call your hospital a doctor's teaching hospital, when you failed at BASIC medicine.

FOR SHAME!

If you have heart or stroke signs goto University Hospital. They saved my life and did the proper tests, that MCG/AU wouldn't. I wouldn't even send a pet to MCG/AU, as that would be inhumane!

I welcome to debate the administrator of university health care on the undeveloped country setting of the ER. To be subjected to death threats from angry patients waiting to get their B12 shots for free, to the in out free medical clinic setting to blood remaining on the scales and floor from someone's ingrown toenail. Please, I welcome an open debate in a public setting. UHC should never allow the ER to be used for indigent care. Shame on this so called "caring" facility allowing elderly patients to wait 9 hours in severe pain while runny noses and B12 shots are administratored for free. Make that, out if this elderly patients tax money. I welcome this debate as I have a laundry list of issues.

This hospital staff in the ICU is horrible , namely the rude and insensitive DrJoyce Gonzales who simply walks around with a clipboard and give news I never saw her treat anyone. Instructor. I am horrified about the condition of my husband. Fluid was pumped into him until every socket or joint was basically bulging. The eyes popped out the socket. The nephrologist saw his condition , looked at the numbers on the machine and asked two questions; how much fluid was pumped in and how much was taken off. The nurse looked dumbfounded and reluctantly said none. I simply asked was this legal. Blisters. Raw red flesh ! My camera went to work. At what point did a medical opinion said stop before he splits open.
To me they killed him. Drowned his organs. I would never ever bring a cat to this place. Fighting. HIPPA laws violated as well.
Will fight this.
