Visited the emergency room with severe pain, and was refused by the doctor on duty, before even looking at me. Then was billed hundreds of dollars for nothing! I'd drive over to a nearby town if you need urgent care.

Problem With Emergency Service

Problem With Emergency Service
Details:

Has anyone else had major problems with SMC emergency room? I was traveling and had major pain in my ankle(which I have 2 plates and 9 pins in), and stopped there to get it looked at. The emergency room doctor, before looking at me, peeked into the triage room and said 'I will not give you anything for your pain, wait and see your family doctor.' I hadn't been looked at at all yet!!! The nurse was just starting to ask me questions. I was stunned. They made me sign a form, which I found out later to be a refusal of medical attention. Now they have billed me and my insurance about $200.00!! I'm just wondering if this is typical there, or if the doctor on duty what just having a really bad day and took it out on me?
