My son had diarrhea for several days and vomiting. A week earlier my daughter had brought home a virus so I figured my one year old son had caught it from her. After his several day bout with what I thought was a stomach bug he woke up one morning and spiked a fever. After having to break his fever twice I decided we needed to see a doctor. I tried a Med stop but they were closed. The only way to get my baby some relief was to go to the e.r. we got there and things looked to be moving quickly. Beds were being filled left and right. I was optimistic. Three almost four hours later my child who was in obvious Discomfort was screaming at the top of his lungs. Flailing his arms around and i was almost in tears. Not because i had waited so long...it was because two other babies and around four adults who had come in not before but after us were being put in rooms even though they were clearly not as ill as the adults were conversing with other patient friends in the waiting room and one woman who had the nerve to turn around to give me an ugly look whenever my son started screaming was eating a bag of chips! Not only did she come in after my son..she wasnt sick..and she still was able to see a doctor before a clearly ill baby....i left the houston medical center e.r. with alot of doubt and anger in this facility. I thought that together we were my sons greatest medical advocates...i was wrong....its just me.

The front desk at Houston Medical center Emergency Room is very efficient. You are promptly attended to. Once you get inside to see the doctors is another thing. I needed some assistance, and when I politely called to the nurse she chose to ignore me, not even bothering to turn her head. The doctor whispered something to her and the comments she made made me feel violated. They were extremely unfriendly and I'd prefer to drive to a much friendlier Macon should I need to go the emergency room again.
