My dad was here for two weeks with a life threatening illness. He had some excellent surgeons and nurses .It was very scary for all of us but I am happy to say 6 weeks later he is doing well and we are so thankful!
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.
My daughter went to ER because of 4 cysts, one ruptured causing severe pain. No treatment / surgery or even notified her doctor of results of test. Prescribed inflammatory and pain meds. Laparoscopic surgery or a D& C to clean her out. It could become infected etc. This hospital need to shut down. Doctors NEVER have a course of action or results. Dr. Jordan should have been notified and the patient should have been admitted until surgery. This is unacceptable to say the least. I will contact the media and board of hospitals. Enough us enough!!! Patient could develop sepsis from this!
Absolutely the WORST hospital ever!!! My story... i got a call from my Ob-gyn stating i need to come to the ER asap due to recent labs. I did just that and you would think since the Obgyn is connected to the hospital they would have some record of me and whats going on. I get there 2:45 pm and didn't leave til around 9 something. This whole ordeal is absurd. There reasoning for the long wait was they are extremely busy and one of the staff said " whoever bleeds the most comes first".... I've never in my life experience a hospital that was rude and not caring. I was literally weak and needed Iv immediately "saying my Obgyn ". I was called back not 1,2 but 4 different times and on the final call i was called back to what looks like another waiting room or a triage room. In there i shared that space with another gentleman and his wife. We both were getting iv's. Talk about a major HIPPA violation. I felt like my condition and privacy was violated in so many ways. The nurse on duty kept telling me were waiting for a room to become a available....the room never did. I could go on and on but im just so furious i want to let everyone know this is not a hospital just a building on empty space. Never will i return!!!!!!
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.
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!
