feedback about Putnam General Hospital
I would not give this hospital no stars if I could. I do not recommend this hospital to anyone. My husband was just here a week ago and they told him if his symptoms persists or got worse to come back. I don't know why they told him that cause they done nothing for him he came in with bad stomach pain and nausea and his ears are stopped up he can't hardly hear nothing and he left the exact same way. The Drs at this hospital in the er are not worth wasting your time on. A little girl came in with the croup and the Dr told her daddy that she didn't have the croup. He was like do you have albuterol at home and the dad said yes well the Dr said well you should of tried that before you brought her.....I'm sitting over here with my husband sick and I'm listening to this stupid Dr telling this dad this, he better be glad it wasn't me or he would of been getting off the floor!!!! They can send a bill to me all they want and will not get a dime!!!!
Great community hospital. Have been many times in emergency situations. The staff has a calming presence and is very knowledgeable.
What a great hospital we have. Our community is so fortunate to have such a caring and responsive facility. It means so much to me. They were so kind and feeling when my wife and father were there before their deaths. Thank you PGH.
E R nurse brutal needs training for taking blood. Never again also Homophobic
The service by the nurses and office staff was great - they were all very welcoming and polite! However, I was seen by Dr. Fred Gose and left feeling very dissatisfied.
I visited the hospital for a mildly concerning bite on my foot - I didn't think it was anything too serious, but I'd been camping in a forested area and I'd never seen my skin react the way it did so I just wanted to get the bite looked at. When Dr. Gose walked in to the area where my bed was, it was a full 30-45 seconds before he even made eye contact with me. He walked in, asked me what I was concerned about, and glanced at my foot. When he finally looked up and talked to me (and not to my foot), he told me that he had seen plenty of bites with skin symptoms like the ones I had. Feeling reassured that my symptoms weren't out of the ordinary, I asked him if he knew what kind of insect/bug bite typically left those symptoms. His blunt response: "Well I wasn't there when you got bit, so how would I know what bit you?"
After this unnecessarily smart comment, I realized that he wouldn't be providing any more beneficial help. My bug bite wasn't anything serious; I just came in for peace of mind, but I left feeling irritated. While I definitely appreciate all the work that doctors do, I believe bedside manner is a critical skill that should not be overlooked. I'm sure there are plenty of other fantastic doctors at Putnam General; I just didn't experience that during my visit with Dr. Gose.
