Pine Creek was a God Sent. Everyone one there was topnotch and they made me feel like I was in the best possible hands. I had a a total knee replacement recently and I would highly recommended this facility. I want to personally thank everyone for the excellent service I received during my stay at Pine Creek. You are all the best at what you do and you are now a member of my family.
Thanks so much,
Everyone from the reception to post op was very helpful and sweet. My husband’s thumb surgery was performed by Dr Patel who did a great job. Highly recommend Pine Creek and Dr. Patel!
My husband had shoulder surgery there and they had him arrive at 7 AM but did not do the pre open till 10 & surgery until 11. That was a bit flustrating, but in all they took pretty good care of him. Except I did find it odd that they had him mark his own arm as to which one was going to be having the surgery..kinda made me wonder ??? But everything did go well. Also I do have to add that the little cafe in this hospital had a very good lunch today ; me and my daughter loved the butter nut squash . The cafe workers were very nice .
This facility ( not a hospital) failed from get go.
Pre test was not checked before I left. Had to return, was told no charge for redo. But was and they refuse to fix.
Friend was left in lobby 2 hrs after Dr. talked to her. She finally came found me in my room.
Nurse staff advised and went against Dr. orders for therapy.
I suggest everyone go to a actual hospital, not a Dr. owned facility
Pine Creek Medical Center is a nice building, and the staff was very professional, courteous, and were in good humor. We developed a good rapport. They had me in and out perfectly on schedule; I was there for a very minor procedure: removing shrapnel lodged in my big toe. Basically a half-inch incision, a quarter-inch deep, and some tweezers. Job done. They forgot to bring the piece to me so I could take a picture of it (they wouldn't let me keep it because it has to be sent on to pathology for examination), but that was a very minor mistake, and they were all very busy double-checking their punchlists to make sure the serious stuff was done well. It's only been a couple of days, but it seems like a successful operation.
Then I got the bills:
$700 for the doctor, covers the expertise, it's relatively cheap for such a simple procedure, no complaints there.
$900 for the anesthesiologist. Seems a little high because they were intending to fully sedate me to remove a tiny sharp fleck of bone, barely a quarter inch long. In contrast, when I had a vasectomy, it took a much larger incision, and a lot more digging around to get all the pieces. I was awake and watching, they used only local anaethetics, and it cost $400 flat: facility, equipment, doctor, anesthesiologist, everything.
Then the facility charge. FOUR THOUSAND DOLLARS. I have insurance, and the facility is in-network, and they just provide the beds. I asked, why is this so expensive? They said they would check and call me back later that day. They didn't, but they did helpfully wait until I was checking in for the procedure to remind me that they needed me to pay $4,000 before they could start.
Total cost to me, out of pocket: $6,500.
I have sharp knives and tweezers lidocaine and alcohol, both for moral and medical purposes, and my mother is a practicing doctor, and I even have a type of a medical background myself from when I was a veterinary technician. I could have just walked into an emergency room to get this mysterious gash in my foot stitched up, and even with emergency room pricing I bet it would still be cheaper.
