Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare Elmbrook Memorial Review by Anonymous
A member review of the hospital completed on Thursday, December 07, 2017 10:30 AM MST.
I went to Elmbrook emergency room with severe pain behind my eye. One of the nurses in the admitting part of the ERs immediate suspicions was shingles. She admitted me into the ER and I waited for the doctor. He looked me over for about three minutes and decided I had a bad headache and gave me ibuprofen. When the nurse came in to check on me she couldn’t believe that that is all he felt was wrong with me. She went To consult with the doctor and ask him if he might reconsider the fact that I could have shingles. He says no he has a headache and that was that. I proceeded to Froedtert ER where they diagnosed me with shingles and gave me the appropriate medication. After contacting Elmbrook/ascension to ask them to forgive the $350 co-pay because I was misdiagnosed they refused. Thank you to Elmbrook/Ascension and their pigheaded ER doctor for the misdiagnosis that cost me $350 plus whatever my insurance was billed you, should be ashamed of yourself. If you are not sure what’s wrong with you please do not come here for treatment or diagnosis you should go to Froedtert.
