Worst hospital I have ever been too. Expect at least a 3 hour wait before any doctor comes to see you and if you are bleeding profusely expect to be sitting in the waiting room. I never go here anymore its just a horrible hospital I literally go out of my way to go to a different ER. The staff isn't helpful they are Rude and half of them have no idea what they are talking about the doctors are usually nice but they take forever I would advise you to go to a different hospital unless you absolutly can't make it anywhere else
