I had a surgical procedure at SAMC last November. My experience was excellent from beginning to end. Prior to being taken to surgery holding, the staff made sure to keep me updated. The staff in surgery... more holding took excellent care of me and continued to keep me updated. The OR staff was so gracious, kind and understanding. I had to stay overnight and my experience on the floor was amazing. The nurses and aides were very thorough and attentive.
A bobcat attacked me while I was out hunting and I was sent the ER by the health department. They took great care of me, got me in and out quick, and they were professional. I had to come back for a series... more of rabies shots for a few weeks and each time they helped me get in and out as quick as possible. I was pleased with the care.
I went to Southeast medical center for a knee replacement. After I had my knee replacement I got a infection in the knee. I had to have 3 more knee surgeries because of the infection I got from the 1st... more surgery. I was only suppose to be out of work for 6 to 8 weeks. I ended up being out of work for 13 months. Before I could get back to work and after my insurance had paid over a hundred thousand dollar for these surgeries this hospital sued me for charge's from my 4 times in the hospital. They don't work with people and they don't care if you are back at work are not. They also know that the infection was there fault but that did not stop them from suing to get that extra 1300 dollars. If you value your life and your money stay away from Southeast medical center. Don't waste your time trying to talk to the billing department. They are very rude and they don't care what your situation is. They only want your money.
