Fantastic staff. One RN in particular- Maryann is a total gem. Parking was unique and something I was not used to, but not overly diffuse either. The UPMC system really has something going here with multiple hospitals and something more cities should look into.
Wonderful staff and treatment! Feel very safe at this hospital. Would recommend anyone to use this facility. Thank you for saving my life.
Very rude staff, in for pretty intense shortness of breath and was treated like I was wasting their time. It’s not like I’m out here drug seeking like some of the other patients I overheard, I just wanted to know why I couldn’t breathe going on 3 weeks. Not to mention, an elderly lady who clearly had some form of dementia or other mental illness in the room next to me was very vocally treated like the scum of the earth by the staff. Needless to say, go to a different hospital.
Dr. McClain was able to get me in for an immediate appointment. He answered all my questions and didn’t make me feel rushed at all. I’m on the mend from my knee surgery and don’t dread going to follow up appointments. This hospital has nice parking and comfortable facilities.
I would give this Emergency room a lower rating if possible. The attending doctor: Dr. Brown is specifically the reason for my poor rating. In October of 2017 I had an accident at my home. I cut the back of my wrist on my garage door. I thought it might just need to be stitched, so I went to the MedExpress. The doctor there; after cleaning the wound said she saw something white and that I may have "nicked" my tendons. She said I should go to the Emergency Room. I drove on to St. Margaret's. The staff was great. They took X-rays, cleaned, etc.. The attending Physician (I hesitate to call him a doctor) was D?? Brown. He came to the doorway of my room, gave a very brief glance and said "that's no tendon. His finger would be drooping". They sewed me up and sent me home. Several weeks later my ring finger dropped and I was unable to manipulate it. I went to an orthopedic doctor; who informed me that I had two ruptured tendons and needed surgery. It is now & months later and am still doing therapy. I am scarred and do not have complete dexterity with my right hand; as they needed to attach the ring and little finger's tendons to the middle finger's tendon. I believe the Nick is like a slight cut to a rubber band. With some stress, it broke. Had it been repaired from the Emergency Room it wouldn't of had time to develop scar tissue, etc.. And wouldn't even had to have been joined to the middle finger: which I can't even give to Dr. Brown.
