Shelia Smithee⭐️⭐️Had to take hubby there er dr was rude didnt want to listen so now I have to take him to mt home ten va will never come back her my hubby nurse was only one that helped usKyle PackThis place is far from any other hospital with the Erlanger name attached to it. Erlanger in Chattanooga saved my life after a motorcycle accident that left me in such terrible shape, the doctors had already given my family the worst expectation speech. I have visited this place twice and both times were an absolute waste of money and hope. If you want to clean and dress your own wounds, or waite 2 hours with a broke facial bone to get treated like a drug addict and sent away, the day before Thanksgiving, with no treatment at all, then this is your place. Two chances I’ve given this place, and after this, I can firmly say that a person should be charged with a felony for the way they treat patients. I’m a veterinarian technician and intake supervisor for a local division of an international poultry breeding industry and can tell you that it is a felony to do animals the way they do patients. I knew I was in for a holiday of intense pain when I over heard the grey hair doctor with the seemingly eastern European accent brag to the RN about letting the diabetic patient he had just seen suffer for her bad, personal health decision that brought her there. I am insured, I am never late on any bill payment, but I refuse to pay this place a dime for the way I was treated. Even if it’s a measly copay as I owe them. I’d rather go to jail. Garunteed better health care there than this place.t viyhuiI don’t think I have ever given my opinion or review on something on this account, but this Hospital has got my husband and I SO UPSET, it’s not funny. My hubb had two separate emergency visits to this place. The 1st one in July, we already knew the problem and illness he had, he just needed a certain prescription written by the Doc asap. So we requested the Doc would not perform any procedures on him. The Doc insisted to do a procedure that he felt was necessary in order to confirm the illness we were claiming. So then we insisted he look into my hubbs records from his former Doc out of state and have them faxed to him to confirm. At this point, the Doc became very arrogant, projecting he knew better. We’re not rich people; and can’t afford unnecessary procedures if we can avoid it. So, the Doc reluctantly agreed not to do any procedures, and wrote out the prescription. Weeks later the bill came to which we were able to get at a more affordable price because of our financial background. We paid it in full. Then… a couple months later, we get a phone call from a debt collector!?! Quoting we owed an additional $600!!! We NEVER received ANY OTHER BILLS and had NO IDEA!!!??? So we called the ER who then forwarded us the number to call that handles the bills, and they were telling us it was for the ER visit….!?!??? I mean, didn’t we just PAY the ER visit??? NO PROCEDURES WERE DONE… and NOW YOU WANT US TO PAY an additional $600??? FOR WHAT!?!?! Ok… calming down… So the 2nd ER visit, my hubb decided to submit to having procedures done only because he just wanted to find relief for his pain. So… they did MANY procedures. Seriously… I don’t think they really needed to do ALL that they chose to do on him, since we already know the main Illness he had been diagnosed with years ago. Anyway, after all was said and done, our bill came in the amount of $5,400+!!! All this stuff just to find out he needed a gluten-free diet, which could have easily been diagnosed via one blood draw! In my opinion, this place is VERY unprofessional and the ER Doc is extremely selfish and greedy. We are trying to rebuild our credit and were doing a darn good job too… that is until now that we have this sudden Debt Collection due to a bill WE KNEW NOTHING ABOUT and still don’t know anything about!!! I guess it’s Attorney time!!! =/Heather ColemanThis is THE WORST hospital I have ever been to. The staff that checked my husband in were wonderful. Once we were in a room it was horrible. Nurses swearing including using the f word and my six year old was with us. Another nurse was bad mouthing a patient and commented how she didn’t want to deal with her. It took 40 minutes for anyone to come and see us. My husband had been vomiting all day and had diarrhea. They never checked him for anything except blood pressure. My husband’s nurse acted as if we were a bother.Phillip BaxterI went to the ER for the flu they said I had a 102 fever.and sent swabs to the lab for the flu hour later Dr.hill Vicente said I had the flu and said nothing we can do for at least give some antibiotics.i think because I have no insurance I was treated like this.so I’ve got a ER bill and sit in a room for an hour or more for nothing.erlanger is just like the old Murphy medical they don’t care about there patientsMichelle BrooksI had to give them a rating to leave a comment, otherwise I would not have given them 1 star. The community heard so much about how Erlanger was going to have so many positive changes in our town’s hospital. Since Erlanger took over most of the facilities issues are now worse! As a person with a chronic illness I need care frequently…I wish I could have quality care here in my hometown without having to travel to find decent care!!The Ubernasty’sWhatever you do dont go here you are better off traveling a little longer to get help. This happened a few years ago and it has changed since then but honestly it’s not gotten any better, tried visiting it again and found out I had anemia and wanted to take more blood after the first 5 tubes. Anyways I was diagnosed with bipolar and they gave me Oxcarbazepine also known as Trileptal it’s for bipolar and epilepsy. It CAN kill you if you take to much and me being in a depression I took 18 pills. For those of you that dont know please look it up. I ended up passing out on the floor at a McDonald’s (where I was working at the time) and one of my managers called 911 and Murphy’s ambulance shows up. They said it was nothing but a pill for my heart and I only took maybe 10 or 12. I was fading in and out the only thing I remember after that was one the giant needle they stuck in my hand and looking over to see my coworkers and two was when I woke up several hours later to see my mom beside me. They messed with my stuff and could have killed me. NEVER IN A MILLION YEARS especially after the last time will I go back even if I am dying. I would rather die of my on accord than to give it to them to make me miserable.Dragon BroMy friend was coughing up blood, and after “seeing” what was wrong with him, they said his previous prescription for his hiatal hernia wasnt even for his stomach, the next genius said he needed some tums, and then they dismissed him and thank GOD for Medicaid, otherwise he would have the same fate as me still owing them 1100 dollars for the “practitioner” bill alone for a simple saline IV. If you have an issue, go to a different hospital, becuase chances are these people will either be the cause of your death, or will not know what to do and make you go else where. SERIOUSLY, DO NOT GO HERE!!!! THIS IS FOR YIUR OWN HEALTH!!!!Amber Spearman⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedWere very pleased with this hospital it has been the best we’ve ever found Thank y’all for everythingJon DoeYou know, ever since Erlanger took over Murphy Medical Center… They have been Turning Away everybody who does not have insurance… Not quoting that, but everyone who I have talked to that has went to the new Murphy Medical Center that has had poor insurance or no insurance at all is giving excuses for reasons why they cannot be admitted or should not be admitted or they even turn them aside to another facility. What I just experienced tonight was not fair at all, they turned me aside and said that I should go to the Urgent Care which charges $200 for uninsured people and she just twiddled her fingers as if it was part of her Duty and couldn’t help it. I have to be seen because I am on probation, the probation office door before you walk in and Hayesville North Carolina states that if you are sick turn around immediately walk away and call your probation officer and tell him what is going on. When my probation officer tells me that I need a doctor’s note or else he will violate me fully because he doesn’t quite believe my medical need due to Mercer in my nose and on my face. But the lady is simply said that she has never heard of that ever and that she could not help me. No thank you Murphy Medical Center, most likely because I do not have this doctor’s note that I need and I do not have insurance, my one and a half year old in my two-and-a-half-year-old will have to go without their father!! And my kids are my life, they are my everything, they are my whole world, and they are trying to take that from me due to not seeing me because I didn’t have insurance this is unfair unmoral!!! #thxalotConnie MullinsAs an RN myself for over 35 years, never go here. I had to sign myself out against medical advice to save my life. Horrible nursing care on the floors. I would give a zero, but I can’t with this system.Nicole NeilUrge yourself to go anywhere else. This facility completely lacks ANY sense of urgency. Will NEVER go there again if my life depends on it. Main ER doctor literally SHUFFLING (in the slowest fashion you could imagine for a turtle race) around looking for a CAUTER pen!!! That poor patient!!! I’ll be polite enough to not throw around names even though I should. I was also told for over TWO hours I was next to be seen, meanwhile witnessing straight laziness, snacking and laughter. Was not even seen! If I dare get billed for this obscenity, I’ll be contacting my attorney. If you can absolutely help it, do not waste your time!!! Hospitals of this nature should be regularly evaluated and/or cleansed of staff. Utterly pathetic doesn’t even articulate the state of this facility.E ANDREWS⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedI want to thank Linda,Trudy,Ronna, Alicia and Kammy for the excellent care during my procedure at the hospital. You were very knowledgeable, professional and truly committed to patient care. I apologize if i have forgotten to name everyone that cared for me that day. You were all true professionals. Thanks again.Alan PalczynskiSo I went to murphy medical center to get a x-ray to find out if it was broke or not. By 12:30 still no doctor… In our room with 3 other people none of our deviders had a call button for a nurse my swelling became worse after sitting there for 3 hours my wife finally takes a nurse down by the name of ( miss ) she said she would ask my doctor what was going on she came right back an informed me she could not find my doctor an said sorry an walked away. I then asked a nuse practioner what the nurse name was that could not find my doctor said he did not know who I was talking about. He then said he miss diagnosed me i went an got a second look with Silva my ankle was broke.Jennifer BurchI again had the chance to see no patient care in action. I had to go to hospital as my left arm was swelling and most painful. I got there at 8 AM and did not leave until 3. And then nothing was done to help me at all. Then the dr came back in and said I think this is cellulitis and put me on antibiotics and steroids and pain medicine. I really think we should have just dont xrays and we would have had an answer. Erlanger being there has not changed anything. It has in some places made it worse. This was the last straw no more wasting of time with Murphy.Meganne SmithIIhad to give them one star so I could leave a comment, but really NO stars from me.. Murphy Medical Center has the most unprofessional and rudest staff I’ve ever met. Their urgency isn’t there either. I’ve been here for three hours in a freezing cold room and still haven’t been seen by a Doctor. If you are bleeding to death you might as well just die, (for example) that’s how much they actually “care” for their patients.Allayah GartlandDrs dont care about your pain they only care about getting u out . I do t like this e.r. anymore I have severe chronic illnesses and because I’m 32 they think I am making it all up even tho I need a liver transplant plus many other problems.Robert StarkeyIf your health means anything to you then go somewhere else! Why do these people get into a career where they are suppose to help people when all they want to do is make excuses why the can’t do anything? If you get Karen in charge of the ER, then leave & go somewhere else! I’m sure there are good nurses and doctors in this hospital but if there not in charge of your care then you probably won’t see them much or at all. So i had a terrible experience with no care about my health problem at Murphy Medical Center EmergencyRoom!Jacki BruderAs told by my doctor to go to the emergency room, I did so. Very friendly staff, my issue was: I explained to staff that I think I tore a ligament in my knee, I don’t need X-Rays because this wasn’t a bone issue. So, they did XRays…and of course nothing wrong with bones. I was told that they do not have an MRI machine at their facility and released me. Needless to say, my issue has since gotten worse and using their referral I won’t see a doctor for 10 more days. What kind of hospital doesn’t have an MRI?!Sarah Coffey⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedNever had a bad experience here.Lisa BatemanNo hurry to get you scheduled for a mammogram when you have a mass in breast. A three month appointment later. A person could be dead! How can they be backed up and so behind on mammogram appointments? Yet they have time to go all out for the walk for life every spring for breast cancer awareness. I even called scheduling after my dr did to ask about the process so I could decide whether to go somewhere else. No one ever returned my call. I’ve worked in medical field for 20 years and have a little sense about professionalism, the management of the X-ray department or whoever is in charge of how things are run at the hospital and the management of scheduling is lacking. It wasn’t always like this. I can’t wait until Erlanger takes over. I hope they sort everything out. God bless them for the work they have ahead of them. I’m having to drive to Asheville for my mammogram and ultrasound. They got me in in two days. I was planning on using Murphy medical center if I have breast cancer but I won’t now. And I have wonderful insurance so it’s not like my bills won’t get paid.so PsychoMATTicThis is literally the worst hospital I’ve ever been to. Went into the ER with my pregnant wife because she started having heavy bleeding at work, and she was afraid she was miscarriaging. No one tried to clean up any of the blood. No one checks in on her while she is puking and screaming in pain. No one showed where the call button for a nurse was. She didnt get any kind of pain/ nausea medicine until about 2 hours in. Only thing they have time for is singing happy birthday to someone and notifying a birth, you know, outside the room where there’s a possible miscarriage. Seen the doctor once in 3 hours, for like 2 minutes. The staff has no sense of urgency or professionalism.Stephanie Hutchison⭐️⭐️I need my gallbladder removed and my right ovary is very small and twisted I’m in much pain and they want do the surgery
