I'm 26 and I recently had a surgery after getting struck by a car. They put a stabilizer on my left leg . Everyone that I have encountered at the facility has been a golden star in my book! I read a few... more other reviews and all I have to say is, have patience with the staff. They aren't employees at BurgarKing. They are the people that are about to change your world, so be kind. I have appointments every week until my leg recovers. You might see me there rolling in my wheelchair. ☺
Eskenazi has a fancy new building, but the organization is a disaster. The people who work there are totally incompetent at basic duties like calling in a perscription. I've had weeks of gaps in my medicine... more every single time I've needed a simple refill because they cannot call it in regularly, correctly, to the right pharmacy, or even at all.
Today I called about how my perscription (which they had already given me the runaround on for WEEKS and then turned out to have never called in at all) and *they had removed the button on the automated menu that took me to the gastroenterologist and replaced it as the Spanish button.* I had to be bounced around and redirected on the phone by people who had no idea what was going on for half an hour.
So I called the other hospital on my insurance, Community. They are kinda infamous for their old, less impressive facilities. But the staff on the phone was very competent and experienced--they were all old people, for one. They got me an appointment with a new doctor in NO time and I can refill my Humira medicine with a nurse practitioner with a walk in, whenever I want.
That's what I need. Medicine. Not a fancy building. MEDICINE.
Horrible! I was rushed to the ER then admitted overnight to Eskenazie when it was newly opened. I had severe diarrhea and pain and quite a number of other symptoms after returning home from a trip. They... more treated me with antibiotics and the terrible symptoms subsided. They came into my room as if I were a lab rat and had every med student and doctor and nurse and janitor look at me. I got absolutely no rest at the hospital. Since all these rocket scientists could not identify the bacteria they assumed it was a viral infection, took me off the antibiotics, and released me without a prescription. They told me to follow up with one of their doctors in a few weeks. In the meantime my shooting diarrhea and other symptoms returned immediately without the antibiotics. When I saw their idiot doctor for follow up, he told me to return in 3-mos and still did not give me antibiotics. I asked him if he was aware that people die of dysentery and never went to see any doctors at Eskenazie again. I got an $11k bill in the mail from them, too, that was not covered by my health insurance. Since that day I have been getting more and more ill despite all of my attempts to get treatment. I had to stop working last year and sell my house to support myself. Many days I am bed bound. I just found out that I have post infectious myalgic encephalomyelitis and had the dummies at Eskenazie known what they were doing I would not be where I am today. They ruined my health and my life.
