I am completely pissed off with this shithole masquerading as a hospital. I came in here with a severe stomachache and was in severe pain. I was triaged quickly, felt very happy that I would be seen promptly. Boy, was I wrong? After triage, these idiots made me wait for nearly three hours, and there was no checking in between. A guy with a toothache was taken in quickly…still better, a lady with a cut on her hand was also seen….

Finally, when these idiots decided that I should be seen, they took me back to the room and then a sleepy head comes in, goes through the chart, asks canned questions and then declares I have indigestion and gives a script for TUMS…no tests, no manual palpation, nothing.

My wife takes me to another hospital, and they do a scan which reveals I have a ruptured appendix, and it was life-threatening…so much for TUMS. Worst Hospital in the entire state of Alabama

My mother recently underwent lower back surgery. She was in severe pain and could not move freely, and every single step resulted in shooting pain and teary eyes. She was suggested an operation, a bone fusion at this place. The D-day arrives, and we are nervous. But they treated her like royalty. Every nurse, doctor, surgeons, anesthesiologist, even the support services were terrific. They gave her enough respect, and one sentence still rings in my ears, “You gonna wake and go for a marathon in six months, and I am going to be your challenger.”

True to the surgeon’s words, my mama was up and running in six months. Thank you, folks, for providing exceptional care to my mama.

One of the best hospitals in the country. The staff is swift and efficient. I had been rushed to this ER after a bike accident. The team got down to work the moment we arrived in the ER. Wounds were cleaned, dressed, a transfer to the ICU for a day and then a step-down ICU for another two days and I was on my way. During the entire period of the stay, not one person gave me a chance to complain.

Highly recommended.

My wife has been in STICU for a week now and might be for more days. This review is to thank every single individual who has been involved in her care. Everybody has taken excellent care of her. The care and affection that these angels have shown are beyond words. All of you would be in our prayers.
