feedback about Providence Medical Center
I went for a cancer screening and asked how much it would cost. She said I have insurance, so no worries. She also said her system was down, so she couldn't even tell me what the co-pay would be. I refused to pay the $1,600 bill and I will never be back.
After only 5 months my bill was sent to collections. They failed to send my bill to my insurance company, did not contact me, and then sent my bill to collections.
As it turns out while providence medical center was in network with my insurance company. The doctor's they use were not. it would be nice if someone would have told me this. I called both the hospital and my insurance company prior to going, and both told me the hospital was in network. Why couldn't they have told me that the doctors in the ER were not? Or perhaps there is no way to know. But I believe as a consumer I should be able to find out this information before I arrive at a hospital. Still trying to handle this with corrections atm.
DO NOT! I REPEAT DO NOT, make the mistake of going to this hospital. My husband went here and they took labs and samples and never sent us the result. Then they charged us and when I asked for a financial assistance letter (other hospitals will mail these out) they lady on the phone rudely says "you can come up here and get one" and we ended up having to pay a debt collector money. It was a waste of money because the doctors and nurses at this hospital did not put my husband in better health in any way. The nurse taking my husband IV also did it so poorly that blood sprayed everywhere.
Went in for a stroke and my whole right side was unusable. I couldn't move... I was left in the same position for a few days... I kept telling the nurses that it was hurting my bottom from sitting in the same place for days and they did nothing... finally, one compassionate night nurse moved me, and found that I developed bed sores really bad bed sores... the wound care team came in the next day hung a tiny sign on my wall that said I had bed sores.... it was so small that we didn't notice it was there for 2 days.. they took pics and dressed the bed sores and never came back. I was sent to a rehab hospital to work with me to gain strength in my right side and on arrival I told them about my bed sores and they told me that providence didn't mention at all that I had bed sores... I've been home for a week now and I'm still trying to heal the sores... thanks to midamerica rehabilitation hospital, they are getting better... because they actually cared enough to treat them every day...
After the way the hospital staff treated me and tried to hide the fact that I developed bed sores I got while under their care... I refuse to ever go back to that hospital... you couldn't pay me enough to go back!
I gave birth to my baby girl here years ago. Had a terrible experience here after giving birth. I was okay at first but when the lady doctor or whatever she was stuck her whole hand into my fanny everything went wrong I started shivering and loosing alot of blood. So after all that happened I guess I died at one point and came back to life. Thank God for that. But just recently I went in for a stomach ache it was excruciating so I thought it was serious. So I went in and lady asked if I have ever been there before and I said yes. She asked my name and I gave it to her and she said that I wasn't in the system. I thought that was kinda strange but then I remembered I have never gotten a bill from them after giving birth. I thought to myself they must've messed up and that's really frustrating cause I want alot of kids and I can't have kids without a uterus. Seeing everyone I know having 2 3 4 5 6 kids is nice and I'm proud of them but it would be nice to have more than one child.
