Please avoid visiting Wilcox Medical Center to address your medical needs. This place is not worth your time and money. They are very rude and does not care a dime if you feel humiliated and ashamed. I had to visit the Wilcox ER a few days back and had one of the most pathetic services ever. The ER nurse was loud and openly discussed the patient details with her colleague. She was least bothered about other patients listening to these things. She also was not bothered to see that the patients were not moving in the ER. After a wait of nearly four hours, I just left. It is time that Wilcox takes care of these nurses. If not, the day won’t be far when it will have to shutter

I was on a vacay here and unfortunately ended up in the ER. The service that I received here was amazing. Every individual in that ER was responsive and super nice. The doctor saw me in a jiffy, ordered a blood test, saw the results, and then made an appropriate treatment plan. The best ER experience that I ever experienced

An amazing hospital that while offering superfast services does not rush its patients. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. I am from Arkansas, and I am used to the extremely long wait back in my state. So this was a pleasant surprise. Love this medical staff and this lovely hospital!

I had visited the GI department for a scheduled appointment. The specialist was Dr. Stephen Keith. The doctor was awesome. He was a very friendly guy and had the patience to listen to me. When he spoke, there was no rush, and he explained my problem in detail, what are the options, and explained the pros and cons of each one of them. He also suggested a treatment plan and insisted that I take a second opinion to have a much clearer idea. No doctor has spoken to me like that. I will surely heed to his suggestions and seek care from him

Completely dissatisfied with Wilcox ER. The ER staff does not know how to treat their patients. I had visited this place after a fall. Just wanted to check if I had any serious problem. BIG MISTAKE. The dickheads diagnosed me with a concussion of the bone on my left leg. I thought there might be a mistake, but the staff was adamant that they were correct. Never saw an ER staff who did not know the difference between concussion and contusion. Highly disappointed with them. Won’t seek care here again.
