The staff at Mercy Hospital in St. Louis have no clue about the word called “Time Management.”

I was here twice, and both the times, I waited for nearly five hours just to be seen and another two to three hours for the test and other stuff. The reason for my visits, fever and associated complications in the first instance and a tick removal in the second instance.

This would not have taken more than 30 minutes, but in the name of following protocol, they made me wait for hours. They have no sense of time management. The care was also not something to write about.

I won’t be back here.

We took our 12-year-old son there a few nights back after he had a bad fall and ended up with a deep cut. The ER staff was amazing. The registration process was completed quickly, and the intake was completed in less than five minutes. After a wait of nearly 10 minutes, Jacob was taken back to the room where he was joined by a wonderful doctor. She had excellent bedside manners. She heard him explain how the fall happened. Once he completed, she ordered an x-ray of the chest.

We were a bit surprised because he had hurt his hand, but when she explained the reason for it, we were impressed. The x-ray showed that Jacob had a cracked rib, which he did not notice. The doctor cleaned up his wound, stitched it up expertly. She also appropriately treated his cracked rib.

We are very happy with the exceptional care that Jacob got here. Well done. We should have more doctors like her...

My family and I have been regular here for the past five years. I will not be lying if I say that this is the best hospital in this part of the woods. The doctors and nurses are exceptional. The support services also provide excellent support to the medical team.

We have come across some bad apples, won’t deny that, but thanks to almighty, these are only a few and far between. The care, on the whole, is exceptional. These folks have not given us any reason to change our care to some other provider.

Thank you for the wonderful work which you are doing. All of you would be in our prayers
