My daughter suffered a stroke at the age of 26. The doctors and staff treated her as a drug overdose because of her age. The doctor would not even sign papers to have her life flighted to Vanderbilt. I would not want to take my fur babies to this hospital! It may be a new building but the quality of care is pathetic!
