No Emergency Doctor between the hours of 2 am and 7 am. Should you require medical attention between these hours you should go to another capable hospital - or sit for more than 5 hours as the staff packs... more the Emerg with in-patients. This was not a one time event. It may be an issue with staffing enough doctors to cover the night shift - if you can't shut the unit down over night so people can find medical attention elsewhere.
Dr. Carter in Plastics is possibly the worst doctor I have ever seen. I had a follow up appointment for a broken finger with him, and after a 2.5hour wait for a booked time, I was rushed in as the last... more patient for the day.
The doctor and nurses never even asked what was wrong with me, I had to call them out and tell them how I got injured. The doctor himself was very awkward, he came in without even introducing himself and began by just telling me to remove the splint that was already on. So with ,y possibly dirty hands, I removed the bandages and all myself, even held my finger myself for him to see. Now I am no wuss. but this doc is getting paid to treat me, not diy treatment.
Anyway after his 1 min analysis of the finger, he decides I need a plaster cast! Now bear in mind, this was my little finger that was fractured, and was in a splint for 3 days - he now decides to cast the whole hand save for my index finger and thumb, all the way to my elbow...for just the one finger!
I even told him I found it excessive, because I work in computers and need to at least type. I left after literally a 10 min ordeal, which now results in me handicapped unnecessarily for 2 weeks? (I don't even know how long because he rushed out)
Besides some miscommunication in ER, I love Dr. Shahbaz at the RAZ emergency. She is caring, considerate, takes her time to listen and assesses all your symptoms. Very happy with her and would want to... more have her every time I get admitted. On a similar note; ER is quite organized and quicker than most locations...
