I've spent hundreds of hours over 5 years getting Iron infusions - blood draws and many other tests. I have been stuck 4 times to get the needle in for one infusion ( on many occasions). The cost has risen form $478 to over $900 for one infusion. I was mis diagnosed in the emergency room and sent in an ambulance to Renown hospital in Reno (175 miles) then left there when it was found that the diagnoses was wrong - yet I was still charged over $3,000 by the hospital for their mistake. My heart surgeon has been waiting a month for the hospital to send results from my Ecocardiogram - they said they sent it numerous times - it never got there. This place sucks.
