You can try complaining about the tardy behavior of both doctors and nurses here but it’s no use.
Was a patient here for only 2 days and yet each time I needed a medicinal dose or my food for that matter they were (un)fashionably late.
Very disappointed that I came here, next time I’ll go anywhere else but.

Sometimes it’s good sometimes its bad. I came to Columbus regional 6 months ago for a wound dress up. It was at the er and I didn’t have an appointment but I still got to see the doctor in some time and went back home feeling happy. Told my friends and family about the experience- how it was quaint and the hospital had a nice vibe to it. Not sure I can say the same about it right now.

Yesterday my girlfriend texted me in the morning saying her chest felt funny. At first I let it go because she had a habit of making everything more dramatic than it actually was. But in the evening right before I was about to leave work I got a phone call from one of her colleagues. Apparently she’d taken her to the er because she was showing signs of a heart attack. I couldn’t believe I almost neglected her and rushed to the er. Thankfully it was columbus regional.. or so I thought.

When I got there she’d gotten her own room- thank heavens for that. She said the doctor said he’d be there in 10 minutes and I didn’t mind waiting with her. 10 minutes became an hour and finally the doctor arrived in 2 hours past. It was the most irresponsible thing in the world. He entered the room and his eyes widened, almost like he’d forgotten that she was waiting to be diagnosed by him.

Then just pretended like it was all premeditated and let it go. Strangest thing I tell you. What are their reasons? Apparently they are super busy- hey I aint denying that! I know that an er is for “emergencies” and I’m ready to understand that. But that night it wasn’t even that crowded in fact there were many empty rooms in the ED which was what surprised me. They were covering up their tardiness with such a flimsy excuse.

One of worse hospitals even been to – took my bestie to er because he took a bad beating from the streets- doctors concluded we gangsters and increased wait time – while people with common colds and runny noses went in before he

Such incompetent bastards I can’t even control my emotions right now. There’s a reason why I was holding off writing this review because I thought I could get some sort of compensation for their major screw up on my new born baby but that’s not happening so why hold back right?! My baby girl, Ianna was born 3 weeks ago- she was perfectly healthy and everything. Didn’t have to go to the NICU so that was a good sign.

But on her second day she started wheezing in the middle of the night and it freaked me out. Of course I was reaching out to her but then the nurses asked me to sit back down and took my baby away from me to another room. No clue what was happening but I could still hear the wheezing in my head. Apparently they performed a test on her, a sweat test. When I asked the doctor what that was and what it was for he said it was for testing if the baby had CF.

But the way the baby was reacting to it I decided to go to another hospital and get a second opinion. When I told them what the doctor at Columbus had down he was flabbergasted. He said it wasn’t safe to perform a sweat test on an infant. And I lost my shit. A disgusting hospital that’ll do anything to make you feel worse than you already do. Not worth calling it a hospital!!!

I say ditch Columbus go to Riley instead. Very smart and reasonable doctors there as opposed to Columbus. Sometimes I wonder how they doctors because they dense af. Even though my rival worked at Riley I had to go there after taking my mother to Columbus because they misdiagnosed her. She was in a very bad condition in medical terms “critically ill” and could have died if I didn’t take her to Riley instantly. The thing with Columbus is that they lazy- they don’t even realize that they are making a huge mistake by waiting on some patients like my mother. Even if you tell them they won’t listen to anyone (dense AF).

I don’t think the triage system is fair here. If you ask them why it takes so long to see a goddamn doctor they get even more pissed with you and push you even further behind the line. My advice would be try to keep your cool for as long as you can..losing your temper here will not be taken well
