My experiences at FMH were very good. We had a cancer diagnosis on my daughter here, who was also born here. A few gripes: my daughter's mother was ignored after the birth, when she kept asking for help... more with an issue that turns out, she was correct. Could have been bad, and the nurses didn't catch it. Also, for some unfathomable reason, they will not look up the policy group numbers for medicaid patients. They only accept the cards. Denali Kid Care no longer publishes the cards! There's basically no way to use medicaid here without the intervention of a social worker, which we also had to do. Seriously, just look up the group number. There's no reason to bill thousands of dollars to the patient who is actually covered under Medicaid. Stupid!
Please change the policy I would love to change this review.
If you have a serious issue and need help right away they don't care , they say first come first served ,even if there are more urgent emergencies coming in. The ER personal up front to check people in... more seriously needs to be more professional and compassionate. They rather sit around and gossip than do their job,
The hospital released my mother who has dementia. Not to the care of anyone. She is literally wandering the streets of Fairbanks. If you need care, I recommend going to a veterinarian before these people.... more
