Dale RobbinsNeed more ER doctors or a better one 3 1/2 hour wait and still not seen is to muchrich m1This place is garbage. The people are rude dismissive. And just want to get you in and out as quick as possible.kimberly kirouac⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️I had a short visit here, the ER staff and floor staff did a wonderful job with my care. Dr. Badeen was amazing. Thank you so much The only negative experience was a phone conversation days later with some rude lady in medical records.Flower G⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Stayed here a while back with my mother and not only were the nurses great but my CNA Micheal provided top of the line care to my mother. If my mother needed anything Micheal was on top of it and we never once felt like it was a burden to ask. It was also very sweet of Micheal to sing to my mother when she wasn’t feeling the best It’s something her and I will never forget. Thank you all for doing an excellent job!Stephanie NWas supposed to have injection from Pain Management Dr last week but noone ever called me to tell me what time to be there. I called and noone there has returned my call or the message I sent to Dr’s website. Not impressed! The least they could do would be to let me know if they didnt want me as a patient. Very unprofessionalRandy Libby⭐️⭐️Empty waiting room and waited over a hour. Probably still here waiting while you read this.Sarah CunninghamThe Er staff was awesome The floor staff Degrading demeaning horrible nurses. I have never been made to feel so bad about myself. Nurse’s are supposed to help people not humiliate themAmber AllenHorrible experience chec checked in at 1:05 PM checked out at 6:20 PM… Waiting room was not over full.. They are under staffed since three new name change and three waiting room chairs are the most uncomfortable chairs ever.. I guess they are not meant to be sat in that long… Never going there again…..Karen Gallagher⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedMy best friend is dying of lung cancer and this is where he came and we were all treated wonderfully. they took excellent care of him made sure he was comfortable made sure he was clean make sure he was happy. His daughter and myself were allowed to be there 24/7. The staff the nurses,housekeeping the kitchen ,everyone made us feel so comfortable and so at home. even though we were so sad we felt comforted by everyone at this hospital. When asked how you’re treated at northern lights sebasticook hospital I would say with dignity respect and kindness.Amy McDanielThree weeks ago I went to the hospital for an injury. ER did the bare minimum, but okay, maybe an Ace bandage and crutches are appropriate. I do all the follow up with my primary care and she feels I need to have an MRI and referral to ortho. I get a referral to Dr. Fullwood, who by the way is not an ortho, at Sebasticook Valley, but he is supposedly qualified to provide appropriate medical care for my injury. Now I am two weeks into a painful injury with little to no improvement. Dr. Fullwood says he agrees with my primary care that I need an MRI and then we should reconvene. His nurse, who seems more interested in trying to look cute in her scrubs than paying attention to detail, brings me a paper with an appointment for April11 at 1:00. She says this is my MRI appointment. If my insurance does not issue the prior authorization, they will call me. She then hands me a boot and says, here you go. Fast forward to April 09th. I get a call confirming the appointment. I get my time off from work approved. I show up at appointment to be told that no one ever sent in an order for an MRI, sorry. Yeah, no. I will be sending a bill to Sebasticook Valley for my time and travel. My time is valuable, and I have now been in pain for almost 3 weeks with an obvious injury and little to no improvement in my condition. Between my experiences with the hospital and my primary care practice I would say to people head west and south if you want good medical care because you will not find it in and around Newport, Maine. Which is shame because it is so needed in this area and many people do not have the resources to travel to better care.Kirsty Green⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedPersonally, I’ve only come to this ER for tooth pain/gum infection due to impacted wisdom teeth, they don’t really do much to help with the pain, but whatever I get it, ‘haha I’m in my twenties I don’t feel pain or am a drug abuser’– anyways, at least I can get antibiotics, and in and out very quickly. Come after midnight to be seen quickly.Jessica Cochran⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedAs a patient of Dr. Penney for 5+ years, I have nothing but positive experiences with her. She always has taken the time to really listen to me and thoroughly explains everything. She most often is able to see me that same day. She really considers my opinion with the utmost respect when treating me. She has been a complete godsend to my family. The kids love having her as their doctor as well. Highly recommended!Jennifer SwensonWe were there this morning with our son. Nancy in registration was extremely rude! All was going fine until she asked if he was unemployed. Now, my son and his father have the same name. So I responded with ” It’s my son who’s here to be seen, so yes he is unemployed. ” She glared at me and said “Okay, we have to ask. ” By the way my kid is 2. So then she they call my son in. She was still asking questions. I asked her if we were just about done because I’d like to be with my son. She glared and dismissed me with a wave while saying ” Go, just go!” I told her she was extremely rude and needed to change her attitude.Angela JacksonI would give it less if I could. We walked in at 10:20 PM with tingling and numbness in the face hands and body that had been present for more than 6 hours. By 11:20 they were drawing blood and said it could be neurological. It ours now 1:39 AM and still no word back on the blood work or anything else. That’s after watching 5 people walk out the door. Their response to muy question of what’s going on is that they will check with the lab. 2:10 AM discharged with no answer and symptoms still present. Nice waste of time and money.Phil Archer⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedNice small country hospital. Handy and the doctors are excellent.N PBeen here 3 times…..This ER does absolutely nothing if it can get away with it. Tonight my son was in horrible ear pain… crying, can’t sleep, etc. He has had issues with this same ear previously and has had to have it flushed…tonight the doctor said it looked waxy and to see our primary doctor. He also said it looked irritated but not as bad as they usually see. Umm. Ok. I asked if they could just flush it here instead of having to wait two days to see primary doctor, so the nurse looked and said it didn’t look that bad. So she gave Tylenol and sent us home. Previously taken our foster child to this ER and they did nothing for her either when they had it in the power to help her. My daughter BROKE her hip 2 years ago. She was brought in by ambulance on a stretcher. Screaming and crying in the worst pain of her life. Because she literally could not move from one bed to the next or use the bathroom, they said they were going to send her home and that it was probably muscular, but if she was still in this much pain in 3 days to come back! Whaaaat?? I pushed for a CT scan and they were so ugly about that! So, she has the CT scan and she had a broken hip. GO TO WATERVILLE E.R. This ER will do nothing for you… I promise!Tom White⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedLast week I went to the ER at SVH while on vacation in Maine from California for an episode of fainting associated w/ a recently diagnosed heart valve problem. I was quickly admitted and seen by a physician. Tests were performed and the doctors recommended an overnight admission for observation plus an additional test the next morning. The room was huge, the care was excellent, and the food wasn’t bad. The ECHO was performed the next morning and the preliminary review was done quickly so we could proceed w/ our vacation after being reassured it was OK to do so. I am grateful for the care I rec’d at SVH and have high regards for the doctors, nurses, and staff. Also…….my CA cardiologist requested that I obtain a copy of the ECHO and forward it to him prior to our next visit. The SVH Imaging Dept. mailed a disc to my home the day after my discharge. That would never happen so fast in So Cal.Pamela LawlerIf I could do no stars I absolutely would! My own personal experiences with this place was with my gall bladder attacks. I was given meds for anxiety even though I told them several times that I’d never had anxiety. No testing was done on me, only a drug given. A week later at Redington Fairview, I was diagnosed with a bad gall bladder and had it removed. Years ago this place was known by the locals as the band aid station. Now it’s worse! Awhile ago my adult daughter had to go in to have am IV replaced. They tried 16 times! Yes you read that right… 16 times… She left there and drove directly to Redington Fairview and on the first try they got it in. Last night my grand daughter was brought in. She had a fever and a sore throat as well as blisters all over her. They did NO tests on her, said she had a virus and sent her home in her miserable state. This morning my grand daughter was brought to Thayer, who actually DID tests. Guess what Sebasticook??? She’s got a double ear infection, strep throat AND scarlet fever. Your emergency department that was on staff on 2/1718 did not do their job. They allowed a very sick 4 year old to be sent home with no tests because in your words, “they were not necessary.” They were! Any normal human looking at her knew she needed testing done. You suck at what you do right down to the simplest tasks of drawing blood and doing the proper diagnostics. Words cannot even begin to say just how angry and upset I am with this facility. In ending, to the public I say, if you’re even thinking for a minute about bringing your family or friend here, drive right past it. Don’t even bother!CrackedGaming⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedI loved it there all the nurses were nice and we’re swiftly able to transport me to Bangor to get further treatmentSarah VanadestineSuper slow, very rude staff, not sure they know what they are doing 2nd opinions confirm that they do notAndrea Poulin⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedTHERE WAS ONLY ONE GOOD THING AT THE HOSPITAL AND HER NAME IS PATSY NURSE) AND ANOTHER NURSE NAMED RUTH AS FAR AS THE DOCTOR’S THEY DIDNT HELP ME OUT AT ALLCass Pnever dealt with anyone so rude in my life.cory reynolds⭐️⭐️The Hostipal in Pittsfield is not great they dont no what there doing.
