Wait time was a bit on the long side for as much pain as I was in. Check in was fast. Had a ct scan done, the process was fast and the team was great. Nurse had a stand in nurse, the lady was very good.... more I was given a shot for pain to pass a kidney stone. Doctor was smart, attentive and explained to me my problem very well. However, there was misinformation and an assumption made about my monthly pain management, by the doctor and pharmacist, regarding my medication. I was never consulted or asked any questions as to why I do not have my maintenance pain meds, and they cancelled my script. Did I mention how slow the pharmacist named Ron at the 24 hr Walgreens in Palm Harbor (my review on him is forthcoming) was and now I have to pass a kidney stone with little very little pain relief. I then had to make a second trip in to the ER lobby to get a revised less powerful pain script. The war on opiates is a war on the average guy with kidney stones pain and chronic intestinal disease. I feel the Dr and Pharmacist should have spoke to me directly before cancelling the script. Again I had a legit reason to get it filled.
I've been suffering from UTI's for over 1&1/2 yrs! Drs in NYC & PA put me on so many antibiotics that didn't work. Finally went to Mease Countryside ER Room, after tests I was admitted for a lot of kidney... more stones & 1 semi LG stone that's embedded in my Kidney! I need surgery but what a relief, great job there! I DON'T really trust DR'S anymore, the Drs there, Specialists, Nurses, EVERYONE was awesome, attentive & caring! Thx to Mease Countryside Staff I now have a plan to get rid of this LG stone, hope I get over my trust issues re: Drs & they can/will rectify this!
