I am a diabetic and have high cholesterol. During my 5 day stay at the hospital, I was given glucose IV's, and served meals that were not fit for a diabetic or for a person with high cholesterol. I am also on a statin, Lipitor. The hospital staff was very much aware of my conditions, but ignored my pleas for proper care. My blood sugar has been under control, 70's - 80's. They day after my hospital stay, my blood sugar was up to 108. I don't recommend this hospital to anyone.

My wife had surgery here last year. The surgery doctor were great until we were transferred to the hospital for recovery. In one night they almost froze my wife to death with no heat in the room. The staff was very rude and did not help until I pressured them to do something. I would not recommend this hospital to anyone, I would not even leave my worst enemy here. DO NOT GO HERE UNLESS YOU ARE ALREADY DEAD, OH WAIT THEY MAY SCREW THAT UP TOO!!
