Melisa AnneKite-UngsThey put shots in my side.. I’m allergic to a med that is usually given in the sides(they didnt have an update of my records or ask me before medicating). They didnt speak to me wouldn’t even guide me to the bathroom. Horrible horrible place do NOT reccomend. Unless leaving care has you needing more answers then when you first went in. I asked several times to talk to someone for understanding their “plan of treatment” they were cold and rude and awful. Ignored me for hours laying in a room waiting and not knowing a fkn thing.Shane GraveRude staff, long waits, and rookie staff. All of the above. We no longer go here. Well worth the drive if your just going to be stuck in a room anyway for 3 hours. (Expect a wait of AT LEAST three hours….)Shelly McConnellIt’s super ridiculous that no matter what you come here for it will always be at least an hour or two! They are never busy but you can bet you will sit for over an hour before even having a doc come into the room! I have been here an hour and 20 minutes and have yet to see a doc. X-ray came in 40 minutes ago and took me down for that and I haven’t seen anyone since!Cheryl Eggert⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedOn our way home to Chicago from Pleasantville, my daughter fell at a gas station and we thought she broke her elbow. So I googled the nearest ER and Skiff popped up. I was extremely skeptical after reading the reviews but she was in so much pain and started losing feeling in her arm that I had no choice. Well, it was an awesome experience. The staff, nurses, x-ray tech and doctor were very nice. They took great care of her and even went and got a 2nd opinion from another Orthopedic just to make sure. No surgery needed. Thank Goodness! So they wrapped her in a splint, gave her something for the pain (thank god) and we were on our way back home! Dr. Neal Naik and his nurses were super nice and explained everything to us! Thanks Again!Carie WagnerWhat a joke.. I won’t be going there even if im on my death bed. I told my boyfriend if there’s ever anything that happens to me get me in the car and drive fast to get to Polk county then an ambulance can come.i thought mercy downtown could alot better then skifd hospital.Korry StephensonThe emergency room is an absolute joke. Rude staff, mediocre doctors to say the least, and waits that no one should have to deal with. If you have an emergency, I’d recommend driving to Des Moines. The trip would still be less time then the wait in the waiting room.Anne Buck-Kemp⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedGlad to have an ER locally! I had never used ER services in my life, and suddenly our family was thankful the proximity twice in the last 6 months.Cynthia TwidtThis hospital is a joke. It’s a 2-3 hour wait every time someone comes in. On my last visit with my fiance we sat for 2 hours with a serious medical condition and never saw a doctor or nurse. There were 2 other patients in the entire emergency room. I do not recommend receiving care from this emergency room. This is the worst I have ever been to. 8/8/2018 I went in tonight because I had a 103 fever with neck stiffness and back stiffness and pain. I was quickly put in a room but then sat for an hour while nurses sat in the hallway talking about their plans. The lady in the room next to me was prescribed an anti inflammatory med, while I’m freezing in the room next door.my head felt as if it was going to explode, and I couldn’t hardly move. They wouldn’t give me anything to drink, mess, or a blanket. I hate this hospital.Wild ManCould be more respectful to patients
