feedback about Wamego Health Center
A couple years ago I came in to the clinic side to get a really bad infection on my scalp checked out. I understand that walk-in appointments can take quite a while to get to since the doctors have to go back and forth between the clinic side and the...I don’t know, registered patient side? so I was ready to wait. My mother, who was my ride there, was a lot less patient and understanding. We waited in the lobby for around 3 hours before I could get seen. When I finally got in, I explained that I don’t have insurance since I work from home, don’t make much and can’t afford it. I have depression and the reason my scalp was infected was because I couldn’t push myself to take any sort of care of myself for months. I sort of half-explained this part, and I suppose it was the only thing that stood out to the person seeing me. This person strongly suggested I “see and talk to someone more versed in this area” and go see someone else in the building. I agreed that it sounded alright, but what I didn’t know is that I was being swindled into getting checked into the ER. My mom, still waiting in the lobby, was even more upset that I was being transferred to a different area but I assured her it would be fine because I’d just be talking to someone. That was not the case. I realized the situation I had gotten into when they had me fill out more papers and needed to put a wrist band on me. I explained again that I don’t have insurance and that I wanted to leave soon, but they said they had to put the hand on me to talk to me. Well, okay. I spoke briefly to someone about my depression and kept wanting to come back to my weeping, crusted, infected scalp, but it seemed like that was the least of everyone’s worry. I told them I wanted to leave because we had been in the lobby for three hours and my ride was really angry about the wait times here. So I checked out. I never did get antibiotics, but I did get a sweet check for $800 that I had to basically starve myself to pay off. I’m usually really willing to forgive and give extra chances to places, but I don’t think I could trust this place with my medical concerns again after all that. It sucks that this is really the only place in Wamego.
This hospital is the worst, I have three broken teeth at the gums and the doctor wouldn't give anything for pain.. Jenny should be fired
I have been to the walk-in clinic twice in the last year for two different issues. Staff was excellent and helped me through the process in an efficient manner.
The billing process for this hospital is AWFUL! No one locally to speak with, multiple account numbers for the same patient, no itemized billing, and RUDE customer service center reps at whatever call center they have handling their billing. Would rather drive anywhere else.
Great staff very helpful
