My daughter has had migraine attacks since she was 7. So this time when she had a horrible headache accompanied by a puking sensation I didn’t make much of it, just gave her an Excedrin. But then she started vomiting everywhere and I brought her to the er at licking. On our way to the hospital I checked the er waiting time and they claim 20-30 minutes TOPS.

That is a laugh and a half. Not even remotely close to accurate because we had to wait 1 hour 45 minutes to see a doctor. Even after that he made us wait for a good hour to get back the CT scans and everything. So tell me why do you lie on the website? Do you think patients are dense enough to believe you? Or is it so that patients will keep coming back?

Guess what, luckily most people read forums and review platforms like these before going to hospitals so lie all you want.. the truth will come out anyway. Can’t lie and say that the staff is rude because they’re not. Maybe it’s because they saw my daughter but they were very warm to her and me, even offered a blanket for my daughter while we waited in the rather cold waiting area. Not too shabby but I don’t like liars so I doubt I’ll ever return.

Don’t mind the urgent care at Licking that much. Sure you gotta wait for a bit but when you finally get into the doctor’s room all the frustration goes away because they are smart. He took a look at me and guessed the issue. After all the tests I checked back with him- he was right. That can’t be just luck.. it’s experience!

Here are a few things about this hospital you should know:
  • Doctors are good but they’re hardly ever there. If you’re lucky you’ll see one otherwise it’s all PAs, NPs, and inexperienced physicians.
  • Wait is dreadful I’d rather go back home, sleep, and return. Slept for 2 hours while waiting my turn, no lie.
  • Nursing staff is very average, they could do better for their reputation.
Just remember that it all boils down to your luck. If you’re lucky there won’t be a line, you’ll go straight through and see a good, qualified doctor who understands what you’re saying and helps you.

Review for 4-25-19
Gave birth at Licking Memorial’s delivery ward. Beautiful baby girl with no health issues. Staff was efficient and friendly, took care of both me and baby, helped me nurse her with no issues or hesitation. The suite was nice and luxurious just like they said it would be. Cafeteria food is good I actually grew fond of it towards the end. This was my first time giving birth so maybe that’s why but this will be an unforgettable experience. Thanks, Licking Memorial hospital.

Been going back and forth from hospital to office because of a joint pain I’ve been braving for over 2 years. Last year when I was in Chicago I was diagnosed with joint arthritis and was given medication for the same. A year later I am in Ohio and the pain randomly increased last month. I tried everything the doctor recommended along with the medication but it only seemed to worsen. So then I knew it was time to see a doctor. Went to Licking Memorial and did not have a good experience and here’s why…

For starters they were downright bitchy to me. I don’t normally curse but.. it’s just not the kind of decorum one would expect from a hospital employee. That too from someone who’s not even a medical professional so honestly I don’t understand where all the attitude comes from but whatever bro. Not even certain they weren’t being racist to me because they were treating other white patients just fine. Whenever I came to the counter their expression changed from chirpy to frowny.

When I saw the doctor I was relieved because she too was Indian. Didn’t understand what I said when I told her I had joint arthritis almost like she didn’t believe me. Didn’t have much to say but show my prognosis from a year ago. They put me under observation and whenever I complained about nerve or joint pain I’d get serious eye rolls from the nurses. They would then huddle up together and bitch (I’d assume about me). They’d give me saline solution and pain killers until they could figure out the problem..which by the way they never did.
