My wife brought me in after I had this stabbing pain in the left side of my lower abdomen. I was having it for a few days and I somehow managed with the pain thinking that it had something to do with my workout sessions. But that day, it had become unbearable.

It was past midnight and there were a few people waiting in the ER but seeing my condition, they took me in first and I was happy they did that and impressed by their gesture. They took good care of me and seemed to do things that were diligent. They gave me a medication that helped with the pain and even saw to it that my wife could comfortably sleep while being with me.

A good hospital to be in emergency situations.

I delivered my second baby here at Knox and it was no good when compared to my first delivery. We had shifted from elsewhere and Knox was the closest to where we were put up. So, for obvious reasons when I developed contractions in the middle of the middle of the night, he thought that bringing me here would be the best decision he could make.

I was made to lie in a stretcher in one corner of the hospital with only my husband by my side. Nobody cared enough to take a look at me for at least half an hour and if it was not for my husband, they would left me there in one corner negligently and conveniently gone about with their business.

Finally, I managed to deliver my baby there after a lot of struggles and absolutely no good support from the hospital staff. Everyone seemed to be hostile to our presence there and behaved as if they wanted us out as soon as possible.

I am never stepping into that hospital again for anything after the way they have treated me in one of the most crucial moments of my life.

A real asset!

I would call Knox community hospital the forte of our locality. I have lived elsewhere before and the hospital we had in our locality then was not even fit to be called a hospital. And I know that is the case with most places.

But Knox is unlike any of them! The facilities they offer you are top notch and the whole place is very well maintained. They have amazing parking space and the entire area; both inside and the surroundings are well kept by the hospital administration.

I have visited Knox Community Hospital a number of times and if at all I have to be in some hospital, I would choose to be here for all the facilities they provide and for the wonderful lot of doctors and nurses working there. They make it a point to give you the best and take good care of you.

But I am not quite impressed by their administrative department. They behave as if its because of them the hospital survives. I never ever got any good vibes from them at all. Somebody should give them some basic training as to how to behave with the customers else they could be a big reason for the place losing business.

Knox does everything on time and they are not the ones who would like to keep you waiting after taking money from you. I am not just talking about the way they treat me but also from my experience of seeing them treat others as well.

I have been here that too at various departments at different times and I have received nothing else other than compassion and respect. The doctors and nurses here are highly competent and professional and they very well know how to take care of their patients well.

People here are good but I found their ER wait time to be very very long!!!! I have been in busier cities and places but never ever did I have to wait for so long to be seen in the ER.

I mean the day I was here at their ER, they completely ignored me; as though I did not exist for them. And I saw them doing this not just to be but also to other people who were there around me in the ER.

But once you manage to grab their attention, they do take care of you! But the wait time is shit crazy and I honestly do not understand why they have an ER if the whole idea is to keep people waiting.

When it comes to anything, there are pros as well as cons and the same can be said about this hospital too. The place is fricking clean and well-maintained than one can even imagine, has ample parking space etc.

I heard from a few friends of mine that they were looked after very well by the doctors and nurses here but when it was my turn, apparently, I was not lucky enough to experience the same.

I don’t mean to say that my friends were lying; I know they are not because I have visited two of them here while they were admitted and I have seen the efforts the nurses put in to take care of their patients but I guess I was not lucky enough.

The people who I was assigned to were all cold and made me feel as if I was a liability. So, if the question is whether I would go back in there again?? I honestly am not sure and I dunno! Maybe or may not be!

Knox Community has the slowest ER I have ever seen in my life. A snail works at a faster pace than the doctors and nurses appointed at the ER of this hospital. I dunno if the same is the condition with the other departments as well.

So, if you have some value for your life, never be here at their ER asking for help and expect them to attend to you immediately.
