I have to stay anonymous because I work in Perry, but I came into the emergency room at 2 in the morning with a high fever of 102 (and slowly climbing), body aches, sore throat, ear ache, and cold chills so bad I couldn’t stop shaking. The nurses and registration department were fantastic. They helped me anyway that they could and were very nice. Dr Hughes (never got his full name, would not tell me)however was not. Before he even came in to see me, no nurse could find him at all. I understand doctors get busy with patients and that’s fine. I also understand that they have documents they have to handle and can’t come immediately. But to straight up not know where the doctor is at all is not right. He came into my room and straight just asked me so what’s wrong. He didn’t look at any documents, was very blunt and short with me. Then he proceeded to check me out. He had me cough a few times. Checked my front and back. Then told me that he was going to treat me for the flu and left(very rudely). Any person with a little bit of intelligence would determine that to be the reason for my illness. I completely understand what doctors go through. He chose this profession. He can treat others with respect and not act like a snob or that he is better then everybody else. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS HOSPITAL AT ALL UNLESS YOU HAVE NO CHOICE!!!! Nurses were fantastic. Doctor was absolutely horrible!
I brought my 5 year old son in at 10pm last night and there were a ton of people waiting with flu symptoms similar to him. We waited for about two hours in the wait room, but the nurses came every now and again to check him and give him Tylenol. Given the amount of cases they had I found the wait to be reasonable. What really made the hospital stand out was the attention and care that they showed my son once we got back to a bed. They knew he was scared so they made everything a game, brought in stuff for him to color, and even let him keep a copy of his x-ray which he thought was the absolute coolest thing ever. They took a scary situation and turned it into a pleasant one if that is even possible. Thank you to the staff for your time and care. I highly recommend taking your family members here if you are looking for quality care for your loved ones.
Perry emergency room needs serious reconstruction is horrible the way you're treated there you stay 6/7 hours and don't see a doctor they are slow they're uncaring. you're better off if you go to Animal Hospital after sitting there for 6 hours I started having difficulties breathing and ask for a breathing treatment I was denied send it didn't have a room to put me in that's when I decided to leave so that I could come home and medicate myself because I was truly have passed away in that waiting room
I will not come back here again. I had a fever of 101 and rising. The doctor was really rude and didn't even look at the documents. Took forever to even get to the back room(about 2 hours to get my vitals and another 2 hours to get in the back room) which was filthy. Don't waste your time here and go to the hospital in Warner Robins. The only good thing is that the nurses staff were nice.
Great experience today. I went in for what I thought was a dire emergency and it turned out to be just a regular emergency. Julie and the rest of the ER staff, from intake to discharge, was very professional in dealing with a rather sensitive situation.
I would have rated 5 stars, but there were old gloves on the ER room floor that were a bit concerning.
