BEWARE!!!! Saint Francis Cheats!!!!

My wife was scheduled for a colonoscopy at St. Francis. This was supposed to be a “No Out Of Pocket” expense procedure. However, we were charged around $300 as a co-insurance. Ten days after the screening, her insurance company confirmed that they had paid the entire amount and she need not pay anything. It has been three months now, but the hospital is dithering on refund…this was not expected of St. Francis.

The billing is very shady at St. Francis. They hide facts from patients about billing. They hide the fact that there are two separate bills – one for the doctor and one for the hospital. This should have been informed before the details are being taken. I might have seen the doctor for hardly five minutes. Once for explaining my illness and second time to inform me that I was being discharged. I was charged $4500 for the hospital part and nearly $1000 for seeing the doctor. It is BS. It is redundant. A patient goes to a hospital to see a doctor and not for eating food from the cafeteria or to while away time. It should be added to the hospital charges. Why two separate bills? Also, why was it told only at the time of billing? If I was told earlier, I might not have seen the doctor at all.

I wanted to protest this and called the office. The answer was, “this is how it works.” I replied, “Okay. Please give the various charges under which I have been charged.” The exec had no answer to it.

Ridiculous!!!!! Won't step in again.

We had a wonderful experience here. We were visiting the town when my mother suddenly fell ill. We rushed her to this hospital. I am glad we did. She was seen in the ER. We were informed that she had suffered a heart attack. The nursing staff who took care of my mother was PHENOMENAL! From the ER, she was transferred to the floor, where again, the quality of care was amazing. The nurses and the doctor who attended to her were very warm, caring, knowledgeable, and highly professional. Never did we feel that the hospital was trying to rush us. My family felt that my mother got the best care possible. Thank you!!! You will always be in our prayers…..

I was visiting this town on a business trip when I was taken ill. My hotel suggested me to visit this hospital. They arranged a cab for taking me to the ER. I went in, was triaged, and was seen by the nurse and the doctor in 15 minutes. Everybody whom I interacted with during my short stay here was very caring. They were highly professional and motivated to treat me. The RN and the doctor were beyond awesome. Attentive to my needs. Reported my results in time. During my entire time in the ER, I felt I was cared for in a way beyond comparison. Thank you, everyone. All of you would always be in my prayers. Thanks to the excellent care, I was able to continue with my trip without any further hiccups

Very good experience at St. Francis when I went there for day surgery. The surgery went ahead on time. The nursing team was very cool but very professional and knowledgeable. The hospital also allowed my wife and toddler to hang out in the waiting room. The surgeon was a jovial person. He cracked a few jokes, but was very professional and the surgery was completed successfully. Was walking out of the hospital after eight hours, fully satisfied
