Boy, are they slow? I feel if you train a tortoise, it will work quicker than this. These guys are very, very slow. The worst part was that it was an emergency. Front desk behaved very rudely and was unfriendly. We are not from this part of the woods. We had an emergency which required us to visit this hospital. BIG Mistake. They took ages to check whether our insurance was accepted in their hospital. I would give them “-100” when it comes to interpersonal communication skills or customer service. The information had to be repeated over and over again, and even after that, there were many errors. The care which we got was also ridiculous. Thankfully, we would not have to face these bloody idiots again in our life. Folks, if possible, seek care elsewhere.

My wife was transferred to this dump from another hospital, which though excellent, had its limitations. During the stay, we had to endure some stupid and some really incompetent bunch of buffoons who called themselves nurses and doctors. My wife was admitted to inpatient care, and while there, either she was overdosed or underdosed; sometimes, the nurses forgot to give her meds. She just did not get the correct dosage until the time she was here. The doctors could not answer my simple questions about her status. All they said during their check was” hmm, okay, we will see, we still do not know the details.” These words were repeated time and again. I ended up shifting her care to another hospital where they were able to save her life. Please do not visit Laurel Regional if you love your life and your loved ones!

A quick visit and exceptional care. I went after I cut myself in a DIY accident. Even though the ER was full of patients, they did take me in quickly. After a wait for nearly an hour (they gave me cotton to stop bleeding), I was seen by the nurse practitioner, who along with his staff, ensured that I got most appropriate care possible. Their service, as well as attention to detail while stitching me up, was great. Very satisfied.

Fairly reasonable wait time. I was called in within 25 minutes after I checked in. The doctor was also beside me very quickly. He had excellent bedside manners. Did not rush through my care. He was very patient and heard me out before making a diagnosis. The only blip in this otherwise wonderful experience was the slowness of the nurses to come back with the meds prescribed by the doctor. I would not hesitate to seek care here again

This hospital has to cope with a lot of negative reviews. But my experience was wonderful. The doctors and the nurses were very pleasant and wonderful. They provided quick and wonderful care when I needed it the most. They did not crack jokes or gave a broad smile or greeted me, but they are not there for that. They are there to help me in an emergency, and they just did that. They were professional and very knowledgeable. Pleased with the visit. Highly recommended
