Took my husband in for chest pain last year and was told it was pleurisy and that we should just give him ibuprofen. The pain continued for 9 months and we returned when the pain spread to his back and... more neck. They did a scan on his lower intestines and checked for ulcers ignoring his symptoms and checked a completely different part of his body. We were told he is fine and they recommended we go to a gastro-specialist even though the pain is in his chest and neck. The doctor ignored everything we said and the tests that we were charged for did not tell us anything.
The billing department is the worst. We tried setting up a billing cycle we could afford and were completely ignored. They are not willing to work with what we can afford at all.
We will not be able to afford going back to this and pray that the issue clears itself up. We cannot afford the payments they offer and were told we would be sent to collections.
If you are sick and need help do not visit this hospital. You will not be able to afford them and they will not help you with what is wrong.
My Husband and I were evacuating our home in S.W. Florida- N. Ft. Myers due to the 2017 hurricane= IRMA! ( my very 1st hurricane and I pray last) We packed up our 3 pets and headed North to Knoxville,Tn.... more Knoxville was the closest hotel/motel that still had availability with Pets. I have C.O.P.D. On our way to Knoxville I had a fairly severe exacerbation of my C.O.P.D. Thank You to GOD..we followed the signs along Interstate 75N for a hospital...We found Tift Regional Medical in Georgia..Tifton Georgia. My husband left me in our truck while he alerted the ER staff my situation..He came back to me with a wheelchair...I did NOT have enough "wind" to walk into the ER. I was addressed and taken care of IMMEDIATELY!!! The kindness and caring they showed me is an experience I'm Not used to down here in S.W.Florida. WE are so blessed and grateful. They took awesome care of me, and provided me with a few Prescriptions which we filled as soon as I was discharged. Filled them and we were back on the road to Knoxville. Down here...one can normally expect to wait for medical help in the ER up to 21 hours. I've been there...It's awful & painful. THANK YOU ALL STAFF at TIFTON REGIONAL..!! ALL.
Went to Emergency Room for chest pains. Admitted for further testing. Could only have ice chips and NO IV. I ask about it but still did not receive one. Early morning my blood pressure dropped to 60/40... more and was severely dehydrated. Nurse call doctor about blood pressure. I heard her say, " yes she is still responsive". They carried me to ICU. Blood levels showed liver enzymes were extremely high. I was septic. They could not figure out what was wrong. I saw at least 6 doctors. Heart checked out okay.Kidney function was low. (Already had stage 3 kidney disease ) ICU staff was great! Finally put back into a regular room. Just like everywhere else you have both good and poor workers, but over all they took care of me! I am still getting blood work due to liver levels, but with GOD leading the hospital workers and doctors I was in good hands. Thank you GOD for being there!!!
