Lutheran Medical Center is a place of excellence, especially the ER, at least for me.

I was rushed here after I had shooting pain in the lumbar spine and I was not able to bend, move, raise my leg…in short, completely incapacitated. My PCP was out of town so referred me to this place. God Bless him for that.

The experience that I had here was out of this world. Right from the security till the billing, everybody was great. Everyone greeted me with a beautiful smile and seemed to be genuinely concerned about my health. I was taken in and then back to the room right away.

The ER doctor was a genius and was able to diagnose what ailed me and went ahead and treated me. I was given necessary meds to tide over till I can meet my PCP three days later.

The billing was also without any issues, a real surprise. An out-of-this-world experience

My father had to visit this place after he complained of sudden ankle pain. Images showed a muscle tear which needed surgical repair. The ER doctor did all the necessary preparatory work. We ended up having surgery two days later. It was a successful operation, and my dad was able to walk without any crutches three months later.

Thank you for treating my father well

Visited the ER after my wife started having a numbing headache and the right side went numb. The doctors did a CT scan on Rhea after we spent nearly five hours in the Emergency waiting room. The CT scan was inconclusive, and the doctors gave meds to help with the pain and a referral to a specialist.

The real shock came after that. These ba*&^%$s billed us $7000 (SEVEN FU***NG THOUSAND). All they did was do a CT scan and offer meds. The only solace was that my insurance picked up three-fourth of the tab, but we were still stuck with more than a thousand dollars. No wonder people hesitate to visit doctors and ERs when required

Lutheran Medical Center is my refuge in case of any medical emergencies. I have been to this place four times over four years, and every single time I have received exceptional care. The doctors and nurses were great and ensured that I received the best care. Every single person whom I interacted during the visits were professional. Very caring and highly knowledgeable. Very satisfied with the hospital and will always come back if any need arises

ER care was the worst that I have ever had. The emergency care team seems to be very rushed and more intent on pushing in opioids into my body rather than addressing the root cause. I ended up getting x-rays and MRI done so that I can take it to a specialist who can address my problem and solve it permanently.
