A complete rip-off. I visited the ER a few months back for high fever and associated complications. I told the check-in nurse about everything and then also informed the doctor. All they did was give a nod. The doctor went on with what he knows best – ask canned questions, read the chart, and then scribbling a blood test, and once the result came, order the standard meds. No word on my associated complications. I might have spent five minutes with him and told him thrice about it, but still no tests. After the shitty care, I was in for more shock. I got a bill of nearly $4000.00 which contained charges for the doctor and other charges including tests which I did not get. Told the billing department about it, but no luck. They just would not listen. After the insurance paid off the bill, I decided to switch my care from this hospital to another hospital, which would not cheat its patients like this. Planning to talk with my attorney about this cheating.

Falmouth Hospital ER and ICU saved my girlfriend’s life. Abby was brought to the ER in an unconscious condition after being involved in an accident. The ER staff got to task immediately and got all the scans done, and when they felt she needed more advanced care, they shifted her care to the ICU. Abby was in the ICU for a week and then a step-down unit for another week. We could not thank the ER enough. They saved Abby’s life. These folks will always be in our prayers

A wonderful hospital experience. I had to visit the ER after I had slipped on a wet floor and landed heavily on my bums and could hear a snap in my right hand. I was rushed here. After a quick check-in, I was taken back to the room within a few minutes. The ER doctor was beside me in less than two minutes. She was a great doctor and had excellent bedside manners. She did a thorough evaluation and once she made sure that there was no other problem, ordered an x-ray. The x-ray showed a break at the radial end. A surgery is ordered, which was completed the next day morning. Once the doctor was satisfied with the treatment provided, I was discharged. Very pleased with the way the staff treated me. Did not give me any chance to complain
