The only thing good about this hospital was the cleanliness. Rest everything was a big disappointment. I had to wait for nearly three hours to be seen by a doctor in an almost deserted ER. I had visited with a deep cut which was dripping blood, and the nurses took no action about it. No first aid, nothing to stop the bleeding. I had tied a piece of cloth, and it was completely drenched with my blood.

When the doctor saw me, he just gave it a look and then ordered butterfly bandages. I was pissed off. How can you put butterfly bandages on a three-inch deep cut? I am not a doctor but knew that this wound needed stitches. The doctor was angry and ordered stitches to be done. I did not see him again. My discharge papers were literally flung at me…So much anger for telling what is right.

I won’t be back to this shithole!!!!

I was taken to this ER back in March after I was injured in a three-car pileup. I was treated very well here. Nurse Joanna, Dr. Williams, as well as the x-ray tech, treated me well. The nurses in the waiting room who took my vitals, as well as other details, were also very polite. The people whom I interacted during my brief stay here were amiable and helpful. They were very professional and ensured that I was treated well and quickly. I will not hesitate to return if any medical need arises

My husband had a torrid last year and had to make several visits to this place and undergo some major surgeries. His medical team was excellent and took great care of him each time he was in the hospital. There was no slackness in the care. Everybody was frustrated, the nurses, doctors, specialists, surgeons, and my husband. Bob gave up hope, but they did not. Finally, by the end of 2018, they were able to get a grip over his ailment and treat him. Thanks to the excellent care, he has been free of any illness and has not visited the hospital for anything other than a regular check-up.

Thank you, everyone, for taking good care of Bob.

I visited the Stringfellow Memorial ER this past week. I visited the ER at 1:00 AM after I developed severe stomachache and was doubling over with pain. The ER staff was super quick and gave excellent care even at this hour. I was checked in very quickly and then taken back to the room in a matter of minutes. The doctor was beside me even before my bums touched the chair. He thoroughly evaluated me, ordered a test, explained to me the result, and then made an appropriate diagnosis and gave a script for meds. All this within two hours. Amazing. Keep it up, folks. I truly appreciate it
