These people are the liars of the first order. I went to the ER, received a “one-minute” evaluation and some meds. So far, so good. Treatment over, I get a bill of $2,500. The item mentioned is “extensive care.” WTF…a one-minute evaluation is called extensive care!!!! The ICD-10 code used was the one for serious injury from a gunshot wound. I went for a severe migraine…

I went and talked to the hospital administrator. The answer – if you do not have money, then you can sell your car and pay the bill.

Completely ludicrous!!!

I do not mind paying, but it should be for the services rendered. But these charges are complete BS.

This hospital should be called Lakes Region Nightmare Hospital!

I am planning to write to the local congressmen Chris Pappas and Anna Kuster seeking closure of this hospital. This is a shithole. The doctors are very rude, and won't treat you. Me thinks they are quacks. My wife went there with a deep cut on her palm, and they are treating it as if she was planning to kill herself. Despite explaining to them in detail how the injury happened, they are not ready to believe you. Maybe it is due to our color, and it is assumed that people of our color are all junkies. They made us sit for nearly an hour before calling her in. These dumbos did not even clean the wound properly and just put butterfly bandages on the wound.

What makes this visit more horrible was the fact that they wanted to put a lien on my house to cover the expenses of the visit because I did not have insurance and they assumed I might not have money to pay….

Visit this place at your own risk….

Had to visit the ER yesterday night due to constant irritation in the eye. I felt very embarrassed when I explained the reason for my visit. It turns out, the wonderful staff did not mind it at all…they took me in and immediately gave an eyewash, and they got the culprit out – a fleck of dirt! THANK YOU!

Last month, I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Kelly, ENT due to constant breathing difficulties. Dr. Kelly was outstanding. He had excellent bedside manners, and it was a pleasure seeking care from him. He took my detailed medical history and then did some minor tests. It turns out, I had a polyp which was blocking the nasal passage. A polypectomy is scheduled the next day, and it goes off well. The entire duration of the visit – 15 minutes. Great appreciation. I would recommend Dr. Kelly to everyone

Got my friend into the emergency room after he complained of chest pain, with symptoms suggesting a possible heart attack. They took him right in. The staff conducts an EKG, blood work, and a chest x-ray. Thankfully, it was nothing serious. The nurses handling the ER are caring and attentive. The duty doctor was very informative and told us the exact cause of the ailment. We are grateful for the timely intervention and quality of care. Thank you
