My father-in-law suddenly fell sick and had to be rushed here. It was late in the night, and we did not expect to receive proper care.

To our pleasant surprise, the ER staff provided outstanding care. The ER nurse took Ron in very quickly and made him comfortable. After a reasonable amount of time, he was taken back to the room where an excellent doctor saw him.

A thorough gentleman, he had excellent bedside manners and immediately put Ron at ease. A comprehensive evaluation ensued, and the cause for the illness was identified. Appropriate meds were given, and we were on our way three hours later.

Exceptional Care!!! Great Hospital!!! Outstanding ER doctor and nurse

Please stay away from this dump! This hospital is the place where the Grim Reaper reaps its harvest. The nurses and the support staff are excellent human beings and very friendly. The problem is the incompetent doctors, and this hospital is filled with them.

Their main objective is to do all types of experiments on you and then discharge you when they are finished. These nincompoops do not have any clue about your illness but behave as if they are doing all their best to save your life.

I was in for a week. The doctors did not have a clue about the illness and discharged me on tons of meds, which I believe would treat every sickness known to man! I have shifted my care to a hospital which employs real doctors and knows what they are doing

Great staff and exceptional doctors! This hospital has been my family’s go-to place for any type of illness, and we have not been given a chance to complain until now. My daughter was born here. My wife was admitted to ICU for severe illness. I was admitted to the floor for a few days, all over the last few months. Each time, the staff treated us well and was very accommodative! My family thanks Athens Limestone Hospital for everything they have done for our family

These guys are very, very slow. I came to the ER at 1:00 PM and have been waiting for more than five hours to see a doctor. There is hardly any rush, but things are not moving at all. Even the nurse does not have any clue when I would be seen. I have called my husband, and I am preparing for a very long night.

The reason why I came here in the first place – high fever and shallow breathing with every breath resulting in severe chest pain. Not sure why it is not an emergency….
