The doctors at Mizell Memorial Hospital are useless and worthless. Except for three or four doctors, the rest of the bozos do not know what they are doing. It seems they are there only for collecting checks and nothing else. Guys, if you want to excel in the field, then pull up your socks and start working.

My husband was fighting a battle against a superinfection and had slipped into a coma. The on-call doctor at MMH by his stupid treatment literally killed my husband. I had to fight against the hospital and threaten a lawsuit if their actions caused any harm to him. If I had not taken him to another hospital, then I would have lost him. PLEASE AVOID GOING TO MMH FOR TREATMENT.

This is one of the most outstanding hospital and the team leading it are the best. The staff, nurses, aides and doctors are very compassionate and kind! I had gone there for treating my wound infection and received the best treatment. I have been to other hospitals also; so know what I am talking about.

Waiting time at MMH ER is bloody f^&*ing outrageous. The first time I went there, I had to wait for nearly four hours, the second time was much better, I had to only wait for two hours. And I had gone for severe abdominal pain. I think the management would do a lot better if they appoint more staff to work at ER during peak times.

Nurses working at Mizell Memorial Hospital are very courteous and highly knowledgeable. But I cannot say the same thing about the doctors. I was at the ER with a friend when I noticed that a man was being brought in an ambulance, who in a barely audible voice says he is having severe chest pain. The doctor’s answer left me shocked. The doctor very coolly says, “Listen, Roney, I do not give narcotics to people. If you are planning this act for pain meds, then you can walk off.” Wow!!! That was amazing. I am 100% sure that the entire ER unit would have been seething in anger after listening to these comments. This story does not end here. It was only after the doctor confirms with Roney’s wife and son that he does not take narcotics nor abuse drugs etc. does he get the treatment started. I was amazed that the patient survived these things.

I take pain meds, and sometimes I have to take more due to unbearable pain, and if my meds are not working, I call in my doctor who tells me what to do further. If nothing works, I rush to the ER, because that is what they are meant for…EMERGENCY TREATMENT. I do not know why doctors look down upon people who use pain meds and always accuse us of taking more meds and then rushing to ER for refills.

I am very happy that my friend went there for getting his laceration treated and not to get admitted, at least not under this stupid doctor.

I had gone to MMH maybe two to three times and each time, the waiting time was less than 30 minutes. The staff was attentive, and when I was waiting, I was given enough attention. When my turn came, the whole appointment went off smoothly. I express my gratitude to these wonderful people and their ever smiling faces.

I had gone to the MMH ER with severe back pain. The on-call doctor came to see me promptly, and after necessary checks, I was triaged and sent for some scans and tests. While the tests were normal, the scans showed that I had chipped bone in my back which was causing the pain. Since they did not have the necessary personnel nor equipment for doing the particular surgery, they referred me to another hospital where I underwent surgery and recovered well. I went for a review to MMH and met the nurses and the doctor to thank them for the prompt action which saved my life.

I cannot understand why people crib about waiting at the ER. It is ER, and you are not the only one who needs immediate help. If there are two people and one of them have some serious problem which can be life-threatening, then the staff would take care of that patient first and not you. It is a matter of common sense. I get very riled up when people diss MMH.

Guys, this is one of the best hospitals in Covington County, and if you are not happy, then you are most welcome to go to another hospital.

I have always been treated well by the staff and the doctors, and I cannot hear anything bad about them.

At MMH, your appointments are completed in a jiffy. It does not mean that the doctor does not listen to you and just gives a prescription. On the contrary, they do talk to you, get the entire history of the ailment and then only prescribe a medicine. On average, I guesstimate that an appointment gets completed in around 30 minutes at MMH. Now that is called time management.
