DO NOT GO HERE FOR ANY MEDICAL NEEDS WHATSOEVER. If I could rate this hospital with a 0 star I would. I took my 9-year-old son in to this ER after his fishing hook got stuck in his knee on 5/1/2018. The nurse decided to cut the fishing hook leaving the metal barb still stuck in his leg without even saying anything to me about it first. We went to X-Ray 3 times, you could clearly see the metal in his leg. The doctor couldn’t even find it to get it out. WHAT A JOKE. I believe he just didn’t want to deal with it. When I asked the doctor why the nurse didn’t use her basic common sense. He looked at me and said we are an ER and there’s only so much we can do here. FIRST OFF, I DO NOT HAVE A MEDICAL DEGREE and I could have told you that the smartest thing to do was numb his knee and cut a small piece of his skin where the hook was and pull the ENTIRE hook out. They cut a huge spot in his knee and we ended up going home with stiches with metal still in his leg. They then referred me to a surgeon so that they can remove the rest of the metal hook. They told me the surgeons office would call me. However, the ER put my phone number in the system WRONG. So therefor I had to call and make an appointment. They told me that he could come to this hospital and do an outpatient procedure. I then told them that I would rather go to St. Dominic’s before I EVER RETURNED TO THIS HOSPITAL. I should have gone to that hospital in the first place and I wouldn’t be putting my son through this now. THIS HOSPITAL IS HORRIBLE.
Do not go here not ever for a cold or anything. They are rude and service is the worst. Everyone I know says this place is terrible. I have had many bad experiences from this place. Someone needs to shut this place down.
Went in back around the 1st of February & saw the Indian doctor with poor patient skills. Severe pain! He gives me Ativan & sends me home! A week passes & I see Dr. Dean who was amazing & ran tests to find I needed immediate gallbladder surgery! Surgeon & nurses on 2nd floor were amazing! Go back a few weeks with SEVERE back pain to find out I have a horrible UTI. California trip & back home start having pain from my back into my chest! Told them my chest hurt, I had a migraine & really nauseous! The nurse comes back with 2 Tylenol!!!! I didn’t come to the ER for Tylenol I had already taken at home. Of course I had none other than the Indian Dr. I had before! Had me waiting for 3 hours to get results from a chest X-ray with my 2 kids till 1 am. Will never go back! Dr. Dean is the only knowledgeable doctor I’ve seen there! Won’t be going back hopefully! If you see Dr. D Williams on your wristband at check in...run out the door! I’m not the only patient he’s been a pain with! Please get rid of this man already! I trained & worked in the medical field in hospitals so I’m not naive as to how long certain things take & the respect you should have for your patient! Either bulldoze this place or replace people! It’s bad when the X-ray techs are angels compared to your dr. & nurse when you’re alone with your kids & feel like you’re dying!
Doctor did not listen. Discharge me with care plan that would not apply to me. Doctor listed on arm band and discharge papers was not who saw me. Nurse in Hall on way out was on a power Trip because I stopped to talk to my wife who was also being seen called security on me.
Took my mother here when she fell. Radiologist said nothing was broken and sent her home with pain meds. One week later and a different hospital, find out her hip is broken in two places. DO NOT GO TO MERIT HEALTH!!!!!
I had to give them one star to post this. They deserve minus zero.
