I have been to the ER several times over the past few years for knee injuries after falling and once when I had pneumonia. (2011-2017) Each time I was treated with respect and professional expertise. My condition is complicated by a chronic lung condition that causes shortness of breath after minor activity and a heart condition that causes rapid heartbeat. All relevant testing and xrays and examination by specialists were done carefully, even though it was late in the evening on a weekend for some visits. It is not pleasant to wait for several hours overall, but in the end, important to remember that it is so helpful to be able to be treated and have some answers at a time when medical offices are closed. The place was always clean and environment comfortable and at all times I knew I was not forgotten while I waited.
I went in to the ER for some help with some serious poison oak I have. Fast forward I'm sitting in a gown waiting the front desk nurse had me sign stuff, mid doing that I asked how much and she said it would be $600 for a ER visit. I told her I can't do that and I will just manage with the poison oak. I have poison oak covering my face, stomach, entire left arm, right forearm, entire lower legs, hips, lower back, groin, and neck.
The nurse said "Oh come on! You live out of your car and have a job, it's just $600". I can't find a place to live in the town here so I just live out of my car till I can find a job in a city where I can afford it. Just trying to pay off debt. Never going to a hospital again, just a bunch of scandals. I'm a 25 year old male and veteran.
Super helpful kind and awesome social worker (Gabrielle?) Thanks for helping us!
Saved my life many times, eternally grateful, Thank You
Saw an acupuncturist in this facility for sciatica, if I had the money I'd go all the time to see him. The complex looks good and is pretty nicely laid out, plenty of parking as well.
