This hospital sucks. Period.

I was brought to this dump by an ambulance since my preferred hospital Memorial was overflowing, and they were not sure how quickly could they address my injury. The ambulance preferred to bring me here because the EMT thought that my injury needed quick attention, and I agreed with them. Who can’t when you have bleeding hands and a swollen wrist and ankle, as well as various scrapes and bruises?

I have heard bad things about this hospital, but I felt my life was more important than reviews. So, I head to this place. When I arrived there, there was nobody at the gate. The security guard was inside. The EMT had to get a nurse and get stretcher so that I can be taken in….bad start. Next, the registration took a hell lot of time because the person taking down my details was busy on her phone…it is a miracle that my details were noted correctly. I was taken in and then made to wait for nearly two hours before a doctor could see me. Apparently, the staff felt that my injuries were not too serious enough.

The doctor gets the wound cleaned, apply bandages, orders an x-ray of the wrist…he completely forgot about the ankle. The x-ray result showed a clean break, but the doctor was not convinced. He ordered an MRI. I was shocked...why MRI? Just to fleece me. I asked them to discharge me so that I could get treated in a hospital, not at a garbage dump staffed by some nincompoops. They were sad but discharged me.

I went to another hospital where they took quick action, and I was operated upon to repair the damages in ankle and wrist…No, they did not take an MRI…x-rays were enough for them.

Avoid College Medical Center!!! Your life might be in danger.

This facility saved my life. The doctors and nurses were professional and took quick, decisive actions which helped in saving me. I am unable to recollect names of all doctors and nurses who treated me, but all of them did a wonderful job. They were great. Thank you, everyone, for working hard to save my life. I appreciate it. God Bless All

So, I visit the College Medical Center one late night with a severe stomach ache. I was not sure if the staff would see me and treat me because it was around 1:00 when I went there. I was in for a shock, a pleasant one. The team treated me well. The nurses were wide awake, were friendly and knowledgeable. An RN saw me around 30 minutes after I stepped in. She asked a few relevant questions and then made an appropriate diagnosis. Turns out, eating too many thin-crust pizzas can give you indigestion…..
Thank you for taking good care of me.
