Details:

Nearly died at Sharon Regional posted the following review: I suffered a MI after delayed diagnosis while treating with Sharon Cardiology Grp. Had angioplasty and stent placement after which I received a hospital acquired staff infection in my blood during the stent placement which led to sepsis and pseudoaneyrsm which destroyed my femoral artery. Had to fight to get out of Sharon Regional and was finally flown by helicopter to UPMC, where I underwent a 6 hour surgery,in which a synthetic graft replaced my femoral artery which was liquefied. I dont care what cardiac awards Sharon Reg received, I would never recommend anyone go there or be treated by their cardiologist staff. They state they are a Cardio-Vascular Inst but in reality they are nothing but a Community Hospital and once they get you there if something goes wrong they do not want to transfer you. They do not listen to patients or treat them as an individual patient. I rate the hospital/physicians/staff a zero,they ruined my life.
