A friend of mine went to the Gladwin E.R. because she wasn't feeling right. They sent her home. While walking into the lobby of her apartment building, she dropped dead on the floor.
A while ago, I visited the E.R. myself. I was having palpitations and other concerning symptoms. They did an egk, said I wasn't having a heart attack, wouldn't do any other tests (I'm disabled & have a serious organ condition), said I was just "stressed", and sent me home. To increase their profits, they labeled my visit as a "non-emergency" so insurance wouldn't cover it and they keep sending me a 500 dollar bill. The entire time I was there, they had this "why are you here... you don't look like you're having a heart attack..." attitude. Recently, I called the hospital to discuss some symptoms I was having. The woman I talked to over the phone laughed at me multiple times.
I dunno, maybe they have been able to help some people but, from what I've seen, it's a lousy hospital. That's what happens when you let conservatives turn your organs into a business. I'm not sure if they're connected but the primary I have through mid-michigan (balakrishnan) is, by far, the worst doctor I've ever had. I've spent my life around doctors and hospitals and I've never seen anything like it before. I could write a book about how terrible she is. Top 15 health system? Yeah, probably because Midland hospital is funded by Dow. Nothing special about their other locations.
