How can a multi-million dollar company employ such idiots in their ranks? I am talking about the front desk lady and the nursing team…I was here with my fiancée after she complained of difficulty breathing, and by the time we reached the ER, she was breathing very shallowly.

We reach the front desk, and I state the reason why we came. The lady rolled her eyes when I said she could not come and give the answers. She wanted only Jessie to answer the questions. She wanted her demographic details and wanted Jessie to spell out her name and her address. She did so with great difficulty. She lives in Douglasville but was not able to pronounce it correctly due to the breathing issue. What does the prick do…she writes, “Douglville.” It took nearly 25 minutes to take down all the details. That is not all. After this ordeal, Jessie was taken in, and then her vitals were checked. The nurse says, “You have high blood pressure. Do you take medicines for it?” Come on, the high BP was due to the shallow breathing…I was literally tearing my hair out. They made her wait for three hours before taking her back to the room. During that time, no breathing aids, nothing. Her diagnosis – collapsed right lung. She is admitted to the ICU. I am thankful to God that at least she will go home alive and not in a body bag.

Great people and wonderful care. That sums up this hospital for me. I took my son here after his fever refused to subside. The ER nurse and doctor were great and treated Rob very well. Despite there being a rush of people, the doctor did not rush through and provided thorough and professional care. Very happy with this hospital. Won’t hesitate to return if the need arises
