Well we came here 2 hours ago my dad cut his hand open and it want stop bleeding and there taking there sweet time he's a free bleeder so there need to stop messing around and get on there game everyone... more been outside talking instead of doing there job bad hospital if need help don't come here !!!!!
The service by the nurses and office staff was great - they were all very welcoming and polite! However, I was seen by Dr. Fred Gose and left feeling very dissatisfied.
I visited the hospital... more for a mildly concerning bite on my foot - I didn't think it was anything too serious, but I'd been camping in a forested area and I'd never seen my skin react the way it did so I just wanted to get the bite looked at. When Dr. Gose walked in to the area where my bed was, it was a full 30-45 seconds before he even made eye contact with me. He walked in, asked me what I was concerned about, and glanced at my foot. When he finally looked up and talked to me (and not to my foot), he told me that he had seen plenty of bites with skin symptoms like the ones I had. Feeling reassured that my symptoms weren't out of the ordinary, I asked him if he knew what kind of insect/bug bite typically left those symptoms. His blunt response: "Well I wasn't there when you got bit, so how would I know what bit you?"
After this unnecessarily smart comment, I realized that he wouldn't be providing any more beneficial help. My bug bite wasn't anything serious; I just came in for peace of mind, but I left feeling irritated. While I definitely appreciate all the work that doctors do, I believe bedside manner is a critical skill that should not be overlooked. I'm sure there are plenty of other fantastic doctors at Putnam General; I just didn't experience that during my visit with Dr. Gose.
