Horrible!

This hospital has some of the most arrogant doctors that I have come across. They do not communicate with each other, do not read the charts, and end up asking the same questions again and again. Everything has to be repeated here, name, and other medical and demographic details as well as the PCP’ name. Why can’t you guys please read the chart?

Just appalling!!!

I have come across numerous reviews that diss this place on various forums, and to be honest, I could not get it. If you ask me, Tahlequah is lucky that it has got such a wonderful gem. As part of my job, I visit hospitals - small, big, and monstrosities, you name it, I have visited it. When you compare this hospital with other small town hospitals, then this is an excellent hospital.

The staff is very caring and kind, and treats every patient with respect. You are not just a number for them. Sure there is bound to be repetition when staff from other departments ask questions, but it is for your good only. One should not gauge the excellence and efficiency of the hospital just by how good the staff is in remembering the name of a referral doctor. The excellence and efficiency of a hospital should be focused on how it treats its patients and the kind of care they provide. Make no mistake, this hospital is a little gem, and the community of Tahlequah should be proud that they have this excellent hospital in their midst. You guys are really fortunate.

Recently, my fiancée had a procedure done over there. I am very glad that she did not get it done in Muskogee. It would have been terrible. Tahlequah hospital has an incredible staff who are always ready to help others and go way above and beyond in ensuring the patient is comfortable and has the proper care. The staff is well trained and know how to get along with things. I sincerely hope all the hospitals learn for this hospital and provide proper care for its patients.

Come on, guys!!!! You can do much better than this!!!

My college-going son visited the emergency room with a complaint of chest congestion. He was made to wait for nearly four hours in a near-deserted ER before being seen and given meds. Once done with it, he went back to college, which is a five-hour drive from Tahlequah. Unfortunately, the meds which he got caused a rash, and he called up the hospital and explained the whole situation. He asked if it was possible to phone in another med — the answer which he got left him astounded.

The lady who answered the call told him that he should come back and get himself reevaluated before any other medication can be given. As if to comfort him, she said it would not take more than five minutes. So according to the lady, my son has to endure a 10-hour drive to get a change in medication for an illness which was diagnosed just a few hours ago and the details which are already available with the hospital.

It could not get stupider than this. He ended up visiting an ER near his college, which had much better customer service. Shame on you guys!!

My wife is presently in the ICU. She is receiving the best possible care. The nurses and the doctors attending to her are outstanding. They do not have any problem in explaining everything and what is the plan of action. They are doing a great job in not only keeping my wife alive but also ensuring that she gets back on her feet very soon.
