I was operated upon by Dr. Gawart. It would suffice to say that the very fact that I am alive and writing this review is all thanks to the surgeon. The nursing team was also fantastic and provided excellent support to the doctor. The postop recovery phase was handled very well by the nursing team. I spent a week here and not even once did I feel that the care was very lax. Definitely worth recommending.

No thanks!

That’s what I'd tell those who want to take me to Platte Valley Medical Center for treatment. This is the worst place for getting treated. The front desk has no manners and shouts down on the patients. The nurses have not heard about HIPAA, and one can listen to them happily discussing the patient details with other nurses. The doctors are no better. In short, the care here is virtually non-existent.

Save yourself time and visit other hospitals where patients are treated as human beings and not just numbers.

The hospital lies on your face and also does not hesitate to fleece you.

I had to visit the ER following a flare-up of allergy and associated breathing issues. I was given a shot after waiting in the ER for nearly four hours. The shot worked well, and I was breathing easy after some time.

I nearly flipped out after I got the bill. I was charged more than $700 for a shot. I asked for a detailed bill. They gave the bill where it showed that the hospital charged me, and so did the doctors. I asked them why and only then did they reveal that the doctors are not billed as part of the hospital charges. They are billed separately.

This was the last straw, and I decided to shift my care to some other hospital

Have visited the hospital thrice over the past 18 months! I had a cardiac cath, surgery for broken bones after an accident, as well as emergency appendectomy! Every visit has been a good experience. People were amazing and provided the best possible care

The best possible hospital experience. I had to visit the PVMC ER after developing sudden chest pain. Tests revealed that I had suffered a heart attack. I was hospitalized for nearly a week. The doctors and nurses were excellent and provided the best possible care. There was not even a single incident where I could say that the care was below par. Very satisfied. I will not hesitate to return if any need arises
