Jorge Gamez⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedNurse Leah, Nurse Leo and Dr. Moore helped me out and they were perfect. Thank you to the triage guys and reception staff as well, I greatly appreciate you all.teresa evans⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedJust left the ER. Had a laceration over my eye. Didn’t even sit down in the waiting room. 1:15 door to door. 4 stitches and done. Great staff!!!Brandy KoziaraNothing like coming in on a Friday because your so sick to just sit in the waiting room for an hour, and then to be called back because they are ready to see you for them to put you in a chair in the hallway for 2 hours and 45 minutes. They literally did nothing, and told me I had a cold. Now I’m sitting here again because my cold has gotten progressively worse, and it’s the same thing. Sitting in a chair in the hallway while everybody else gets seen before you. Horrible walk in er. I strongly recommend going somewhere else.Natalie Cecil⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️I saw the horrible reviews of this place and was shocked. Yesterday I went in after experiencing symptoms of a blood clot, and sure enough it was a DVT. I got checked in a called right away to get my vitals. I thought the wait to get called to a room was pretty reasonable and thought it took quicker than if I would have gone to Shands. All the doctors and nurses I saw were great, listened to me, and explained the DVT thoroughly. They gave me ample time to ask them questions and I never felt rushed or brushed off by them. Made me feel like they were taking care of a member of their family. I think it really depends who the doctor is though.kelly oliver⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Super front desk ladies even on Monday efficient caring staff and a new bright clean environment. … best ED awardTraci ShellI’m literally sitting in the hallway crying and screaming in pain with nurses and rns walking right past me. They legit have me sitting by the time clock. Worst experience of my life…Gomez AdamsDon’t bother with this place! If you are waiting for someone to be seen, and go to your vehicle to wait, the security will harrass you and inform you that you are taking up valuable parking at their empty parking lot by waiting there. If you’re having a real medical emergency or need seen don’t bother either as they will just leave you in the waiting room for hours move you to a room and do nothing but leave you there for hours and claim nothings wrong while they have nobody there because they are “To busy”.Sandy Sundberg⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Fast like an ER should be. The doctor was efficient and very informative. All was taken care of within 3 hours. Also convenient because I live near.Matthew D⭐️⭐️3 hours waiting in a waiting room with chest pains. Nobody seems to care, staff doesn’t talk to anyone. Definitely not a place for an emergency situation or to be seen atMandy YatesLike many others said in reviews, this emergency room deserves no stars. I went in with severe swelling in legs feet and ankles plus shooting pain in left arm.And shortness of breath. The wait time was 6 hours. Almost everyone that came in after me went ahead of me. Triage there were 3 men in there(staff) I was asked to remove my shirt for an EKG. They never left the room while I took shirt off and door was left open. People were walking in and walking by in the hallway. Very unprofessional. I was very uncomfortable. They did do a couple tests. Checked heart, chest x-ray, and blood work. Rushed me when I tried telling them family history and my symptoms.They seemed thorough. But urinalysis results weren’t back yet. My diagnosis was a urine infection. Given antibiotics and nothing was ever said to me about this. It was on my discharge papers. Chest xrays hadn’t been seen by radiologist yet. And no help with the severe edema! I’ll never go back here for any reason!!edgeCSAvoid like the plague. Go to a real ER if you need to. Affiliated with Shands in name only, no access to Shands medical records. PA (didn’t see MD who signed off on things) failed to take complete relevant medical history. Billed for extra x-ray not taken. Made referral for non-existent problem without telling me. Prescribed unnecessary medication without informed consent/explanation — which my insurance wouldn’t cover — whose first warning on the product insert was “risk of heart attack.” Notice the dates on the other reviews — they’re getting worse as time passes. Take the hint.Stephanie Zimmermann⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedWent on 12/5/18 w an abscess on my leg. I had an awesome experience considering what I was there for! From the girls that checked me in, to the paramedic Donovan, the nurse John, the radiologist Peggy, and both doctors i was very happy to say the least when I left! I am thankful for each of them!!!!!Jonathan SantiagoWorst waiting room I have ever been in. The wait with nobody in the waiting room is unbelievable. Pregnate fiance who was in a car wreck today hasn’t been called back in over 2 hours. I can’t stress enough the lack of care these people provide. Go elsewhere.Kurtis Schlienger⭐️⭐️⭐️Hellishly expensive. 1,300$ for two stitches in a finger. At least it was cleandamon mowryThe WORSE hospital in Gainesville . People will let you sit there longer than you should . Doctor called us in the back and we literally sat waiting for 2 hours , we wasn’t even in a room they had us in the hallway then we got up and walked out , then the doctor just decided to come tell us the doctor was just about to call us at that point she didn’t wanna turn aroundSoru MikaThis place SUCKS. 4 hour wait for 5 minutes of time with the doctor.Daniele AdamsDo NOT go here if you are having any real issues. They mixed the wrong medications for my mom which made her hallucinate, completely disoriented, and out of it. They gave her medicine that had extreme side effects with her chemo treatment. We were transported to Shands Cancer center who confirmed the medicine they gave her should never be administered to a chemo patient. We have been at Shands almost a full day and the effects are just now beginning to fade. I would NEVER recommend this location or the Springhill location to anyone with a semi-severe issue. Just go to the regular ER and deal with the wait. The doctors there seem much more competent.Stephen BurbageMade my wife a daughter sit in the waiting room for three hours, after they were informed my family fell down a flight of stairs. Told them multiple times I had a two year old with multiple head injuries, and my pregnant wife fell down. Finally after three hours took us back, sat there for another hour while they check out the girl next to us that was complaining of cold symptoms. Finally they only take my daughters weight and pulse, and give us a 800 dollar bill for just those two things. Then to top it off had to wait another 3 hours to be discharged. Worst emergency care visit of my life. Please go anywhere but here.Caroline SpencerSo i brought my bestfriend here cause she could hardly walk..they did xray said no broken bones..well brought her to north florida the next day and ya she has a broken hip..you all could have done something better..she had surgery..cant believe you missed this..uncalled for!!! Cant believe u sent her home…very upset…Amy Wishart⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedI’ve never had this good of an ER experience where everyone from the staff checking you in to the techs, nurses and Dr’s, they are kind and empathetic. I left there 100% better than I went in there.natalee hogle⭐️⭐️My step sister came here for a test it has taken them 3 1/2 hours and nothing has happened don’t come hereSam SOnly one doctor, sitting and waiting for nothing, go somewhere else.Brittany Davis⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedHad to be admitted this morning. Staff here is super friendly and professional. I could tell they were happy to be there and enjoyed helping others. Those are the best nurses and doctors to have. I was only there for 2 hours and I left feeling much better, with resources for following up. If I need assistance in the future, I’ll make sure to come back to this facility! Thank you all so much!Monique Janay⭐️⭐️Every visit they are always short staffed and backed up. NO one communicates with you. So aggy! Lu Coll⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Great staff, customer service, patient care, clean, and comfortable setting. I especially enjoyed the kindness this one lady named Penny gave. She was attentive and seemed to really enjoy her job. I recommend this place to anyone in the area. I came during night shift and the staff did everything possible to find the reason for my visit.Dana Wade⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedWhat an amazing staff!! Dr. Shanan was amazing and the nurse team was curtious and kind and wasted zero time treating my husband and calming be. No wait. Super clean. We drive 35 miles just to come here. Simply the best!John BeachLike all the other reviews say bring a Tent and camping supplies. You will be here for SEVERAL hoursSarah Bolt⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️The staff was friendly and efficient. The doctor I saw did not have great bedside manner but he treated me for what I had and didn’t want to do a bunch of extra tests just to make money. Eric was my nurse and he was the best!!! He thoroughly explained everything to me about concussions and what the medicines were and what was ok and not ok to take and do. Super friendly and did a great job taking care of all the patients efficiently. The hospital was super clean and I was in and out in about 2 hours!wayne baumanCame in for dog bite, sat in waiting room for over 3 hours on a Thursday night. What a complete joke. I’d strongly recommend going to an urgent care center if you can avoid coming here.Denise⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Very clean. Get you back quiclky. Doctors and nurses seem nice.Julie Winters⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedThey were clean friendly and very efficient I will deffinetly go here before going to a big hospital. I was in and out in no time. And the staff was so nice.Shonda Braswell⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedFast and professional. There was no wait time and I was a walk in. Place is clean and staff was super friendly. They answered all of my questions and really listen to me. So much better than the main shands ER.Gary L Sr.⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedI have been here on two occasions. Both visits were a result of the failure of the main ER up the street to provide quality, efficient and effective health care. If I had not gone to the satellite ER I probably would have lost use of my arm for the rest of my life. The main ER is in dire need of additional rooms, staff and an effective/efficient/organized structure. I love Shands and I am a very vocal advocate to whom ever I meet, but the main ER gives them a black eye! Please don’t misunderstand me, The staff in that facility are nice people and do their best. I blame hospital management at all levels. Go to one of the satellite ER’s first if you can get there! Trust me you wont regret it.Natalie D.⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedHad a wonderful experience at the UF Health Emergency Center at Kanapaha. My toddler had an incident at preschool and we thought he broke his arm or wrist, so I took him straight in to the closest ER. Every person we met from checking in to checking out was professional & compassionate. I have to single out David the radiologist who was so wonderful with mmost two year old and made a scary experience fun for my child. Turns out that nursemaid’s elbow is a common injury in kids & an easy fix. We were in & out in about an hour & I couldn’t be more grateful!Priscilla CaplanWent early on a Sunday morning. No wait time, tons of attention from Dr. & staff. Why is this 1 star? I went in with a dog bite on my hand, needed antibiotics. They insisted on intravenous antibiotics and an xray. Total cost, $2,394.40. For a dog bite. No stitches. This is crazy.Scotty Moss⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedFast, nice, clean. The staff was great and knowledgeable. Good experience!Megan Shockley⭐️⭐️Nurses were nice. ARNP that I seen didn’t seem to want to listen to me. Never see a Dr other than when I originally got there. ARNP did everything else even when I asked for a Dr she showed up. Not happy sent me home with some BS excuse. Still don’t know what is wrong with me! After going to North FL they verified I had gallstones and needed my gallbladder removed!Nia Piya WiyaHad to wait 4+ hours to be called into a room!!Viva LeRevolucionThis place is the stuff of nightmares. Went in with severe pain in throat and neck and doctor entered for 2 minutes and said I don’t see or feel anything go to a specialist. When I told nurse I was a bit disappointed that he didn’t even try to figure out or discuss what could be wrong he started laughing and said ohh we don’t help with those sorts of things. Complete waste of time and money to see people who didn’t even show an oz. of empathy, compassion, or interest in helping.Tracy L⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedI was passing a kidney stone and went to Shands ER they made me sit in lobby from 12pm to 6:15pm with no movement . I left went to Kanapaha ER I only sat for 2 hours and got back. EVERYONE WAS AWESOME!!! I think they could teach ALL THE SURROUNDING HOSPITALS AND CLINICS , Dr’s offices (all medical offices) how to be professional and treat patients with respect and have some patience . Just use some professionalism . Stacey, (nurse Practitioner ) , Andrea that put my IV in and was giving me meds, she was Awesome !!! And Andrea the Tech that did my scan also super nice and patient. There are few more people to name I’m sorry I can’t remember all of there names , all I know is the WHOLE STAFF WAS GREAT IF I NEED TO EVER GO FOR SERIOUS ANYTHING IT WILL BE TO KANAPAHA ER! Thank you all for taking care of me as professional and with carding hands and hearts as you all did. I’m also a nurse and that is true compassionate medical care! Thank youSabrina yI went to the ER in horrible pain, thinking I could get help, but I was faced with a very rude doctor: Dr. Hannah Easton. This doctor was rude to me on numerous occasions. and did nothing to help me, instead of examining me, she said ” What did I want her to do”. And asked other rude questions. She made me feel that I was not worth her time. I am warning any future patients not to go to this ER! Or if you do tell them you do not want Dr. Hannah Easton. I wish I could give this place no stars. I am super disappointed and I am still in pain 🙁Catherine Giacoma⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedThis place was on point in all aspects of the word !!! In an out in two hours !!! I could not ask for better care from the lobby to the exam room !!!JazThe nursing staff is great but the actual doctors really need to get their act together. First they came in and said “your chest xray was negative”, yet no xray was ever done.. Then next day child went in and doctor came in and said everything looks good, only a virus, you can be discharged… While getting ready to leave nurses came back in with masks asking why we were leaving…. They said child was positive for flu…. Huh? It’s sad when nurses do a better job and pay more attention than the doctor. This place really needs to figure out what’s going on.Katharine Lane⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedExcellent!! Efficient, friendly staff. Great facility.Luke Anderson⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedThis place is the best E.R. I have ever been to.Travis BensonAwful! Go to a different emergency room. No resemblance of order or first come first served. I get some illnesses are more time pressing but 14 patients sent back in our four hour wait, 10 of which came in after we arrived. This is our second attempt with Shands Emergency operations and the wait times are horrendous! Never again! I wish you could give zero stars.Ben Jacqmein⭐️⭐️⭐️Doctor very rude. Fast wait time, great nursetimothy tilley⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedNice helpful kind peopleKate SherrardBEWARE!!!! VERY VERY EXPENSIVE. Stitches going to leave a bad scar too. Over $600 just to walk in the door!!! And that doesn’t even include the doctor’s fee.
