Details:

after a 2 hour and 30 minute wait in the ER I opted to go to a hospital in Tallahassee for treatment. I was never once even asked if I was worse or better. If my pain was the same worse or better. Several people left while I was waiting to seek treatment elswhere also. This is a poor excuse for an ER. There are people who go ther because they do need help not a long wait in a crowded waiting room.

ER not sufficient

ER not sufficient
Details:

This is the worst emergency room I have ever been. They need to expand to keep up with the growing population as there is usually a 2-3 hour wait just to get in to see a doctor. After waiting 2hours and 30 minutes I opted to go to a hospital in Tallahassee for treatment. The staff doesn't even bother to check to see if your situation has gotten worse. I have never in my 61 years of life had to leave to get medical treatment at another hospital. This was ridiculus.
