Doctors at Porter Regional Health are excellent when it comes to general medicine. However, if you have anything more severe than flu, I would suggest going to other hospitals as these people SUCK!!!

Not only is the care an issue, but the billing practices are also horrendous. The prices at PRH is outrageous and much higher than local hospitals. Worse, they would not even accept any sort of payment arrangements. They want their money first and won’t listen to you. Even if you pay money on time, these idiots will not hesitate to send you to collections.

I had a terrible experience here, and I am repenting coming here in the first place. I would avoid this hospital in the future and also encourage my friends and family to stay away from this dump.

I have accompanied my sister to the cancer treatment center at Porter Regional Hospital a few times and am blown away by the care that she always received. The center has some of nicest human beings you would come across. They treat you as human beings who require support. The staff is very friendly and attentive to your needs. They do not hesitate to explain the procedures they are doing and why is it being done. The stations are also quite comfortable.

I'm glad that we have such an excellent hospital in our neighborhood. My family and I appreciate everything that the wonderful staff does here

I have visited PRH ER thrice now. All the three times, the wait time was reasonable. The staff was accommodative. They were genuinely concerned about my well-being. During each visit, I was treated by English speaking doctors. No offense to anyone, but I have had issues communicating with doctors who barely spoke English. I believe one has to interact with their patients in clear language as any confusion might lead to serious problems.

The staff had excellent bedside manners and answered all my questions without any hesitation. Very pleased with the service I got here

This has to be the worst hospital in this part of the woods. I might have visited this hospital at least three to four times and each time I have had horrible experiences. It was not just me. My friends, as well as family members, have also had issues with this hospital. The staff is very irresponsible, and the prices at this hospital are too high.

If I start ranting, then the website might crash. Long story short, Porter Regional Hospital SUCKS!!!!

I have to visit this hospital quite often for blood draws as I suffer from idiopathic pulmonary hypertension. The staff has treated me exceptionally well every single time. They have empathy for their patients, which is a very rare trait nowadays. The wait times are also very bearable.

In short, an outstanding hospital which treats its patients well.
