feedback about St Petersburg General Hospital
I came in when I was hit by a car. I didn't take the ambulance because I wasn't in pain at the time and I didn't have insurance. Shortly after I returned home I couldn't move properly. I was in severe pain in my arms, chest and neck and I couldn't walk without crying. My roommate drove me to St. Pete general emergency. I waited for over 40 minutes in the lobby. When the doctor finally saw me she was rude and treated me like an idiot for not taking the ambulance. She was heavy and had curly short hair. Her assistant was very caring and he treated me like a nurse should have. But the doctor acted as if I was there to get attention or strong drugs. Like she had better things to do than help a girl that was hit by a car on a bike and flew into the street. I had bruises everywhere. I had knots on my knees, head and arms. I was scared and my family doesn't even live in Florida so I was on my own. She gave me a damn ice pack and some medication that was expensive ibuprofen. The nurse looked at the doctor like she was crazy. He looked very annoyed by her domineering authority and 'oh well that sucks" attitude.
She didn't even look at me more than 10 minutes before she told me to go home. She acted like she was an annoyed school nurse.
I got an outstanding bill without even getting treated or given any decent medication. I could have bought that at the store.
A few months later I found out I had a permanent neck injury. You people are so lucky I didn't sue because I had to deal with the lawsuit with the car accident. I talked to other people about it and they all said that St. Pete General was the worst hospital they ever experienced. Even other hospitals give a disgusted look when talking about St. Pete General and I understand why.
My chiropractor told me they treated her back injury the same way years ago. Don't go to this ER if you have a serious injury.
Brought my 4yr old in for a splinter to see if they could get it out. We were on vacation and wanted to enjoy it without him complaining the whole time. We were there for about 30-45 minutes and were told "I'm sorry we cant do anything, it has to come out on it's own". A few weeks later I received a $6000 bill for the hospital and 2 other bills for 2 different doctors. My son only seen one doctor. When I called I was told their standard fee for a level 3 ER visit was $5669. No one would help with this or try to even work with me on the bill. I was told pay it or it goes to collections. This has to be the worst display of health care billing I have ever seen in my life. After reading all of the reviews I see I'm not the only one.
New to the area was in and out with a ear infection and a skin infection no questions about insurance till after I was seen by the doctor.. don't believe all the negative stuff you read, I am grateful they helped me I had no insurance. Thanks again you guys rock
Our experience during our recent stay in St Petersburg General Hospital was A+ Excellent. The excellent care and professionalism started with the phone calls prior to our scheduled surgery date for my friend. Registration and preop was easy. Notes had been made during those prior calls concerning my friends disability and I was impressed that I would not have to keep explaining as paper work was processed. He was treated with special attention and respect and extra time where needed. In the waiting room my concerns were at ease as I followed the monitor. He woke up confused and panicked from his first surgery . Nurse Connie from Recovery invited me to come sit with him. She was awesome and understanding.
I also want to say that this hospital is very clean and quiet. The nursing stations were not loud like I have seen at other hospitals.
When we left yesterday , Michael was pain free and full of energy. And his story of his experience has been shared by him with everyone he speaks with. And yes while I have not written every staff name in this post he remembers every name and the care that you gave him.. A Big Thank You to each of you .
This is a lengthy review but the Excellent Professional Care deserves it.
Also a big Thank You to Dr Couch . Michael is doing great !
Wonderful caring staff. The room in surgery unit is clean. I recommend this hospital.
