Seton Medical Center just cannot get its act together. I was a patient of this hospital nearly 18 months back, and I was assured that the itemized bill would be sent to me. I was happy. When I did not get the bill, I called the department and was again assured that it would be sent. I called up my insurance a few days later, and they said they had paid $500 for the treatment. But a month later, my insurance bill contained a $1500 charge from Seton. I was confused. Upon calling the insurance, they said Seton charged it. This got me pissed off, and I went to Seton’s billing department. The department did not have a record of my bill. When I asked them how they can charge $2000 when they do not have the bill, the answer was we had it then and now it is lost.

I stopped all my follow-ups at Seton and shifted my care to a different hospital. Last Friday, I got a call from Seton stating that they have sent me an itemized bill. I received the bill of $500. So for the fault of mine, my insurance deducted $1500. When contacted, the insurance said the nothing could be done of the $1500. I think a scam might be brewing. Maybe their goal is to fleece unsuspecting people of their hard earned money.

Taking a moment off of my hectic life to thank the wonderful team of Seton Medical Center for taking wonderful care of my mother, who got sick when she was visiting her relatives. My mother is nearly 90, and when she complained of uneasiness, she was rushed to the ER. They took her in immediately and started all the necessary tests. It turns out, she was suffering from exhaustion and finished spending three nights at Seton. My mother was treated very well at this hospital. She received humane treatment. The nurses and doctor in the ER and those on the floor were great. They were very friendly and attended to every need of my mother, even some crazy ones. We will never forget this hospital and its wonderful staff.

My wife underwent minor surgery at Seton yesterday. She had to spend the night there for monitoring (IV pain and antibiotics). Have to admit, we are highly impressed with excellent nursing staff and the doctor and the surgeon. The night shift nurse, Meghan and the day nurse ensured that my wife did not have any problem during her stay here. Highly impressed
