Used to pick coming to this place over Conemaugh... and Conemaugh is much closer for us. This place treated my mother like total garbage. She was there twice this week, first time was for diverticulitis. Never really diagnosed her, the doctor could care less. Spent more time waiting than anything else. Took her in today, Dr. Ovais Maqbool treated her like she was making things up. He ultimately got upset because she did not want pain meds for a kidney stone. He schooled her in allergic reactions and talked to her like a child the entire time. My mother knows what an allergic reaction is, between me and her, we've had a few. Some of the nurses, especially the broad up front at the registration window, have a "my poo doesn't stink" attitude and it shows. I don't care if my arm is falling off, I will not return here and I won't send anyone there for treatment. Absolutely disgusting... you should be ashamed of yourselves. No compassion or regard for anyone other than themselves. I never thought I'd say that about this place. This used to be a great place to go for faster treatment than most other places. Their time and care is really lacking. I wish I could give 0 stars... but I unfortunately have to give it 1.
STAY AWAY FROM CHAN SOON-SHIONG MEDICAL CENTER AT WINBER and KWAMI AGBODZA
I went to the E.R. with severe ear pain, and while waiting to be seen by this QUACK, I heard him prescribe Levaquin to 3 patients. He looked in my ear and said, "looks good, looks good." I asked him if he would care to take another look! He mumbled something about his glasses. Then, sure enough, he tried to prescribe Levaquin to me too. Seems to be his "go to drug" no matter what someone has. This drug is VERY strong and dangerous and should only be prescribed in life-threatening situations. When I refused the Levaquin he said, "I don't know what to give you." REALLY? YOUR SUPPOSED TO BE A DOCTOR. He ended up giving me a different antibiotic, which caused a serious side effect and never helped my original condition. I had to go to my family doctor and my family doctor said I was the SECOND person that week to complain about this E.R. Doctor and my family doctor advised me to never go to that hospital again. Also, my doctor said the drug prescribed was another very strong drug and never should have been given to me --- I didn't need to be on antibiotics for my condition - all I needed was EAR DROPS. I filed a complaint with the Chan Soon-Shiong Medical Center at Windber (aka Windber Medical Center) and I told them I don't feel I should be responsible to pay the $150.00 bill that I got. After a month or more, James Steward, MD, Medical Director of the Emergency Room, sent me a letter saying, "At this time, the hospital is not at liberty to forego any charges that you are responsible for." REALLY? If you take your car to a mechanic to fix a dent it has and you get it back with an even worse dent are you responsible to pay the bill? NO. This is the WORST HOSPITAL ever since it was taken over and KWAMI AGBODZA is the WORST E.R. Quack this hospital has ever had. STAY AWAY FROM THEM BOTH.
Just so you know if you get an xray, it will not be billed under outpatient clinic it goes to hospital billing and will change how your insurance bills the visit.
Had heard they had a great ER. I never use the ER but was in so much pain from suspected diverticulitis, I decided to go. Never again. Dr. spent approx. 2 minutes with me & had no use for me when I did not want to be admitted for 2 or 3 days for IV antibiotics. Nurse was condescending if not outright rude. 6 hours of my life I'll never get back.
