I had a benzo addiction a few years back. I tried to get rid of the addiction, but it was not an easy road. Many hospitals refused to give me benzos even if I had severe anxiety attacks due to my addiction. Once I had a severe attack and St. Joe gave me 1 mg Ativan, which was as good as not getting any medication.

Ended up visiting Porter Adventist Hospital seeking care. Doctors at Porter Adventist did not judge me and provided enough doses which would help me with the withdrawal symptoms. Thanks to the caring doctors at Porter, I was able to withdraw from this and have not touched any benzo for more than five years, and my anxiety is also under very good control.

Thank you, Porter, for treating me as a human being in need and not as an addict

Guys, please hear a person out entirely before transferring their call.

I had called to schedule an appointment with a specialist, but I was not able to do so because the people who answered my call did not hear me out entirely and transferred my call to completely unrelated departments. I was even transferred to billing once before they could hear me out.

I had to visit the hospital personally and schedule the appointment. Frustrating!!!!

AVOID THIS HOSPITAL!!!!

The ER doctors and nurses are very rude and derive some sadistic pleasure in shouting down a patient. I saw the nurses shouting down an elderly patient when she inquired about something. My experience was not so good. I ended up visiting the ER for high temperature and had to wait for more than six hours before I could be seen by the doctor. The doctor did a quick one-minute evaluation and discharged me with meds that did not address my illness.

I ended up getting admitted to another hospital.

This review is for the wonderful food that was on offer at this place a few years back. I was visiting my nephew, who was admitted here and was famished. Luckily we had room service, and these folks gave lots of options. The food tasted good and was well within the budget. I had two to three servings of the biscuit.

This was back in 2017. I am not sure if this is still in practice, but if it is, then I would suggest all the people who wait upon their loved ones to try this out once. You would be pleasantly surprised

Had to visit the ER a few nights back after feeling uneasy and having dull chest pain. I was triaged quickly, and the doctor was beside me within seconds. She ordered a few tests which luckily turned out negative for heart attack. However, they asked me to stay overnight for observation. I was discharged the next day morning. Very thankful for the exceptional care.
