feedback about Polk Medical Center
I've been here twice now since moving to Polk co. Once for my son and once for myself. It is a smaller hospital so they're not as equipped as a larger facility, but I've never been treated better in an ER. Everyone is very Professional and went out of their way to make sure I was comfortable.
Have stomach pains, . I go here a few nights ago, explained to them my symptoms. All they did was ask questions, took vital signs and blood. And tried to guess what it was. None of them knew. Recommended me to other docs in other areas to SEE if they could help. No one at floyd Polk even bothered to do a stomach exam/CT scan. I am still here in pain, left there in pain. He wrote a high expensive prescription and went on dandy with his chit chat gossip. And here I am with a bill almost $500!!!! For nothing!!
$3000 bill and they did absolutely nothing but take some blood. Still in pain. Referred me elsewhere because they didn't know.
I use this hospital whenever we have an emergency....thats the key word there. EMERGENCY My 4 year old had an accident and cut her nose pretty badly and I rushed her to the Emergency room and we had to sit and wait for almost an hour to go back due to all the sick people in the emergency room...during doctor office hours. The emergency room is for emergencies and they should be put over someone sick. On a good note they treated my daughter very good and made her as comfortable as possible for getting 4 stitches.
The dr was totally insufficient, didn't examine my injuries ( my leg got run over by a truck ) other than having abrasions washed of and lightly bandaged. It has been over a week and can still not walk without walker. One wound bled for days and should have been stitched, is now so infected that my whole foot blew uo like a balloon. Also,bled internally from contusions in rib area and bruising internally.
The dr's only comment to me was that I was lucky, and it could have been much worse. I don't feel too lucky.
He gave me no antibiotics and I had to ask for a tetanus and anti-inflammatory shots. The room was sloppy and staff disorganized.
