I love the Dr's and the staff that work for North Fulton Spine and Pain center. They are all very nice. I get my chronic pain treated by ketamine infusions here. This is the best alternative I've found... more to not becoming a statistic to the opioid epidemic in the country today. That could've been me! Luckily for me I was referred to this group before that happened. I'm grateful to this group of Dr's and nurses and their staff. Shout out to Dr. Weaver for referring me to them. These people quite literally have at least saved this person's life.
First off I do not suggest looking at hospital reviews. Most people don't visit a hospital for fun. Labs take time and the wait is typically atrocious. But after I got through it all I felt better. Might... more have only seen the doctor for less than 10 minutes the whole visit but the nurses had everything covered. Just be prepared to feel lost and confused and impatient first. They have and order for everything and if it takes time it probably means you are doing much better than someone else so count yourself lucky.
Please avoid this hospital at all cost!! They will not protect your loved one. They do not screen for abuse, like they are mandated to do as professionals, or intervene when abuse is obvious. My father... more collapsed at work and was brought to Wellstar north Fulton hospital. He was so sick he could not make decisions. His abusive wife of one year who no family had ever met, made all decisions, including denying any visits from his family, including me his only daughter. Her daughters could visit who were nothing to him. I had to sneak into the ICU to see him. And was thrown out like other family who attempted to visit. He was crying when he saw me but I was forced to leave. These dumb nurses (I can say that because I’m a registered nurse) allowed her to scream and be physically aggressive in the ICU and never called security on her. They were asking her to please lower her voice Really!! When I tried to call, I was told there was a password and I wasn’t allowed to know anything about my father. I begged them to take my phone number down and finally they did. I spoke to social workers, management, security nobody would advocate for my father. He died 3 weeks after being in this hospital. And no family was notified. I had to hear about it days later from his coworker. When I called, they said they aren’t obliged to call me that he died. I’m not the next of kin. WHAT!!? I understand hippa, but there’s something called human compassion. And they knew the situation. I don’t know if my father was taken care of physically, but they neglected the psychological needs of a dying man out of fear of a crazed abusive wife! They handled this all wrong and he suffered because of it.
