Facility was very clean. Happy with the surgeon. Staff needs a course on professionalism. The nursing staff was very rude and their was a lack of communication between nurses. One nurse even called me a liar. A receptionist at a desk with a sign to inviting people to ask her questions rolled her eyes when we asked her questions.

Absolutely terrible the last few emergency visits my family and I have made here. Horribly long wait for "emergencies." this time one of the male nurses was kind and helpful, but after such long waits even in severe pain, I never even got a diagnosis, or relief from symptoms!
