I was admired for pancreatitis. I was in severe pain! A female Dr. Came in and I was crying and I ask could I have something for pain. She said, IM NOT GIVING YOU ANY NARCOTICS!! I said Ma'am I am hurting... more really bad!! She walked out. I went and reported her. After that!! Every Dr. That came in mistreated me! The ENT Dr. Hurt me on purpose. One Dr Came in the door pushed it back as hard as he could!! Flopped down in the chair and just looked at me!. They cut off all medicines and said it would b the next day when I could get some. I had to get my daughter on 3 way in admin. To get meds. I found out this was the head Dr. I fired and she was just hired from out of town, some big shot that was over all the Doctors so that explained why I was being mistreated and they will not admit me in ER. They tell me to go to my primary Dr.I had bad pancreatitis and they never told me. I kept coming bless complaining about a stomach ache. I should have sued them but it's what you can prove.
I went to the ER due to severe fire ant bites the staff from the receptionist, triage nurse, the ladies from x-ray, nurses & doctor were kind, nice, friendly. Couldn't ask for better treatment was in... more & out within 3 hours.
This hospital is the worst in terms of service and expertise. The doctors clearly do not know the most efficient way to diagnose patients. Listen to me carefully, Unless you have a decent amount of... more medical knowledge, they will take advantage of you and perform all kinds of unnecessary procedures on you without permission and then just later ask for the fees or threaten to send your account to deb collection. They tried to perform unnecessary procedures for me such as IV, fMRI, e.t.c when I clearly did not need those procedures (and I gladly rejected. They were obviously unnecessary, because I am perfectly fine now). When you try to fight them about the unnecessary fees and procedures, they simply claim it is a standard hospital protocol. No, they aren't. It is just a corrupt system performed by this hospital to take more money off of you. This hospital is focused more on making money rather than giving the best option to the patient. There is a reason this hospital has such rating. I would personally sue this hospital for the misdeeds that they do if I had the money. Absolutely disgusted.
