The doctors were OK and did what they said they should have done for us. I can't second guess their medical opinions so I assume it was the right decision made. However, once we were done and out of the hospital one of the doctors sent our bill to collections after we had a payment plan set up and approved through her own office. Then a year later the hospital itself made a mistake at the very end of our payment plan after we made every payment early - supposedly the mistake was because they changed billing sytems and everything was not carried over correctly. Numerous calls and hours and hours on the phone were required to get them to correct their mistake only to have the mistake appear again months later. Apparently they lack the competence to execute a simple monthly payment plan or they are trying to get extra money out of patients and hope the patients don't notice or are too tired of fighting about it and just pay extra. I can't explain how aggrevating (and how long) this experience has been.

Terrible treatment by nursing staff and doctors. Nursing staff does NOT follow infectious protocol...was noted by observation. Slow response to patient needs and medications. One of the biggest problems noted was the nursing staffs inattention to previewing and asking about details within the patients record, a general sense that they care less, and communication breakdown, attending doctors just seem clueless of the patients medical histories and unwilling to contact the patients doctor within a given specialty. All in all if I could I would rate it less than zero, this is a terrible experience for my elderly father to be going though.

I just waited 3 1/2 hours in the ER and finally gave up. The promptness at this facility is terrible. Looks like they should add more staff to match the demand. I will suffer through my injury until I can get an appointment with my regular doctor.
