I wish I could give this hospital ZERO STARS. My fiance had an asthma attack in January and James Thompson was the ER doctor he saw. The bill ended up being over $3k ---- Whatever we get it, it's emergency care. Thompson ended up giving my fiance a prescription for a Proair Inhaler with 11 refills (his actual words were that it was an "unlimited refill prescription") that don't expire until January of 2019. Everything was fine and dandy until one day we go to get one of his refills (we had only used 5 at this point and it had been enough time in between refills for my fiance to receive his next refill) and the pharmacist said that Thompson sent over a letter requesting my fiance to see him again for him to continue his refills! We already paid $3k to see him and now he wants more money to tell my fiance that HE STILL HAS ASTHMA?! THAT IS EXTORTION!
We told the pharmacist that the doctor had told us the refills we're unlimited and she laughed as said that would be illegal! We even showed her the original prescription that still had enough refills and said that he was required to see a doctor to continue getting his inhaler! DOCTORS ORDERS!
He is entitled to those refills! The prescription has not expired and there are still 6 unused refills!
DO NOT SEE THIS MAN!
GO TO ANY OTHER HOSPITAL!
To add on, when I took him to the hospital, it was so dirty in the lobby I CAUGHT PNEUMONIA!
You had better find a better emergency room to go to before you end up having an emergency and need to go to this place for help. This isn’t a real emergency room. This place is a joke. I just got out of here. I’ll never go back. I’d rather die in a gutter first. Trust me, I’ve been to ER’s many times from Southern California to Northern Washington. This one doesn’t care about your emergency. Even if you have insurance. Good luck.
Go to the hospital in Tualatin east of the five freeway. Way better service. Trust me. I’ve been to them all :(
This place is not the worst but seriously you tell us to stay in the lobby while we wait for our loved ones to recover. Sleep in an unsecured area and get robbed. My family lost over 700$ worth of items and cash. If you do plan to stay at this hospital pack light. 20$ tooth brush and paste. Maybe a pillow and blanket because the ones they provide are not good. This place just feels so unsafe to stay at. I hope noone else gets robbed. Older female with raggedy red hair and a younger lady with blonde hair who is a heroine addict (be careful). Both white, homeless and have been seen to always be roaming the Halls. They look very suspicious. They like to split up and stay on different floors.
Now what? How surreal could it possibly be needing to get off at that particular Max stop because I'm losing consciousness? But now what? They weren't gonna know Serotonin Syndrome- They're not gonna know Lyme Disease- Maybe you can tell them if you're fully conscious or can speak- They'll call everyone and your 10 year old child here Bipolar- It's Stepford- Meanwhile people could literally be infected with rabies and be holding your infants for a living all day long and no one is gonna know because everyone is CONDITIONED like robots to call EVERYONE Bipolar for everything- We are all PEOPLE- We all have moods and if they're extreme then WHO is ever gonna find a MEDICAL cause for anything serious or contagious around here- These people will literally kill you- This metro area is beyond extremely overpopulated- Doctors here are sadistic and place all focus on mental health when that is not their area of expertise- It's one way to spread disease- Where the hell can I crawl off to now when I have to deboard the Max- Knowing I need hospitalization- But it's factually and provably unsafe inside of the hospital I'm directly next to- They're not LOOKING for medical causes for things- And please do NOT call the police!
I am new to Providence. My husband needed to go to the ER at St. Vincent's today. We have been here 3 hrs and still in the waiting room. He just had pancreatic surgery and is having complications....I am not from Portland, but if this is any sign of the healthcare system with Providence, I am immensely concerned to say the least. People are throwing up on the floors around us in the waiting room and bathrooms, people are having blood draws in the waiting room, I feel like I am in a third world country right now. I then find out the only other hospital is across Portland for Providence. I am appalled at the healthcare system here.
