I went the emergency room do to a heavy cold and while I was waiting to be seen, I realized that everyone who came after me were being seen already by the doctor. The sad part is that this is not the first time this happened to me in there. I ended up leaving without being seen because I couldn't deal with my pain. Ended up to a different hospital. What a shame. I would never recommend this hospital to anyone.
