We sat in the waiting room for 35 minutes then they took us to a room and a couple of nurses came and did and EKG & took blood pressure they left and about 10 minutes or so the doctor came. He was like a stone guy moving, The SX FS VA Clinic sent them a list of thing that was wrong with my husband, they pretty much ignored it. The DR Erickson (I use doctor for him loosely) his name tag said doctor. He came in and said you are having problem with your eye so we explain it all to him but he kept saying you have a problem with your eye. Finally got it in his head that my husband has a blocked artery in his neck 90 to 95 blocked and he was to call the 2 hospitals in SX FS to see which one he could get in the fasts. He told us he was only making 1 call, so he left and we waited in the room about 10 to 15 minutes I went out and told them we were leaving and them the doctor came to talk to me (I guess he had made the call) he should of came in and told us he did. After about 2 1/2 hours we were done and they didn't do anything. As far as my thinking go he made it thru school but couldn't be any were else so he comes to the ER. If he is the doctor on call we will not be stopping in this ER. Other people have said that the ER was not any good. I am staring to believe them. Get better doctors in the ER.
Only one available for emergencies, with need for more staff; making good improvements gradually...
Can I give zero stars? I just moved here from a different state so everything is still kind of chaotic for me and the last thing I want to have to do is go to an appointment but I need to.. So I call and seriously THEE rudest scheduler I have ever spoken to in my life. What a way to make me feel unwelcome. Doesn't look like the first bad review either. What a joke.
Only to get emergency care for your heart problem cut your chest open then they will help. Drs. Here look at you and want you either to die or walkout with the problem came in with. Had to go to a small town in Minnesota .
Have not once had a single visit here where I felt satisfied with care. Horrible. So I started asking around, and no one had a single good thing to say about the Watertown ER. Everyone I know now goes to Brookings or Sioux Falls for care.
