I am giving this hospital a neutral number as the prior write up's I just read - Makes one wonder why you went to an an EMERGENCY Department - that an outpatient urgent care or provider could have performed.... more The first one I read w/the chest pain- tests ordered are standard - only you can dispute diagnosis billed as I take it you have insurance? If not, you had the right to refuse a test you could not afford to pay for including the results, that the provider of care deemed to be bronchitis - it's up to you as an individual to take the medication or not.
I went in for neck, shoulder, arm and chest pain/tightening with a slight cough like I need to clear my throat for 3 days. They did an EKG blood work and chest xrays. All came back clear. Dr. Sean Michael... more Tierney diagnosed me with Bronchitis. He prescribed me antibiotics/ inhailer and ibprofine. When asked why I was prescribed all of these he said I have bronchitis. I then said it doesn't hurt to breath it I have had no sign of being sick and I do not think this is what it is. I then asked if he can garntee that I have bronchitis and he said no. This doctor saw me for less then 2 minutes. Why do you have doctors perscibing medicine or giving diagnoses that have hardly any symptoms to what have? Seems like a hurt up lets give them something and get them out kinda hospital.
Went in with stomach ulcer pain. I knew what medication I needed and told the the dr. She insisted on doing labs anyways and told me to pee in a cup. After waiting in the waiting room for a hour with... more a cup of hot pee in my hand. I finally had 4 vials of blood takin and started to fill more nauseated. After they took all the blood I was told to wait agin in the waiting room for the dr. After 4 more hours of waiting I asked the desk nurse what was going on and was told that there's no rooms available. I asked how long the wait would be and that I just need to speak with the Dr. Not needing a room. She answered rudely that it could be a few hours there's people in front of you. I just left and decided to make a appointment. I called there scheduling and was told by that office, that since I'm a new patient it could be a month or 2 in till I get to see a Dr. I ended up just calling my old primary doc where I used to live and had a appointment in 2 days. The drive was better then sitting in that waiting room.
