Ryan Jackson⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedOur experience at the ER was different then other posters. We were out of town and our two year old had a respiratory emergency and it was their quick treatment and helicopter transfer to Atlanta Children’s that saved her life. We couldn’t be more thankful for how caring and competent the staff was. Thank you!Mary BrannonOh my, do not send loved ones. My mom arrived by ambulance. I told her to call ambu bcz she said she slowly was feeling like she couldn’t breathe. My sweet mom was treated like gum on their shoe. She/ we were told she had COPD (which was a new diagnosis) and she was free to go home after a breathing treatment and steroid injection. Script for an inhaler. Two days later she’s still at my house and unable to get out of the bed properly, I take her back, still, same diagnosis- in and out in less than an hour. Next day, I drive my mom to Emory… she had a lung infection that required nearly a month stay. I thank God everyday I did not leave my moms life in the hands of Well Star.Becky HinesWish I could give this negative stars! The dirtiest hospital we’ve ever been in. Used vomit bags and bed pans laying in the ER rooms. Bloody gauze and trash in the waiting room. And it looked like they hadn’t swept or mopped in days. We had him transported to a new hospital as quickly as possible. Praying we never have to go back.LATACHA HARDNETTPLEASE AVOID…… These people were very unprofessional, rude, and lazy! Took my husband and they forgot to give us crutches, under the doctor’s orders. They seemed to not even care! They took our money and we knew nothing going in AND NOTHING coming out! Went to the Dr. today and received EXCELLENT SERVICE! Something needs to be done quickly! LaGrange is NOT BEING SERVICED WELL AT ALL! Many people AGREE!Cause u Need 2 knowEarly this morning I took my disabled husband to the ER at WWGMC. He had fallen a couple of nights ago getting out of the shower. The pain and restless nights had gotten the better of him. It took me the two days to get him to seek treatment because of the negative reviews and negative personal experiences he has had. It takes a lot to get my husband to go to a hospital and I say this so you can understand how much pain he was in to be willing to go. He also went because of the public promises made by Dr. David Ferner of positive change. Well my husband arrives in the early morning hours and is seen by the triage nurse, which was very pleasant, and she checks his blood sugar and it is over 350. My husband is a type 1 diabetic and insulin pump wearer. We return to the waiting lobby. No problems aside from the pain and discomfort my husband is in. We make it to the back and are greeted by an excellent nurse. Well then enters Dr. Moussa. That’s where the problem begins. My husband explains his fall and the pain and area of the pain. HE MAKES THE MISTAKE OF BEING HONEST WITH THIS DR. MOUSSA and tells him that he is in a pain clinic and what he takes. Dr. Moussa then ask, “Well what do you want me to do? He ask who his pain clinic doctor is. We tell him the doctors name, who we will call Dr. X to protect his privacy. Dr. Moussa says that Dr. X knows better than to have his patients come to the ER! And storms out of the room. Registration comes to the room and wants to start the registration process but my husband asks the registrar if the doctor is going to treat him first. What test will be done and the like. The registration person says he will go check and comes back and says the nurse would be in in a few minutes. He whispers then that the doctor thinks my husband is out “chasing pain pills!” How arrogant of him! He never checked my husband’s chart. Had he, he would have seen the last time my husband was out here at the hospital was February 5th of this year and Dr. Moussa was the doctor who saw him then and helped him with his pain and sugar problems! Asking for a shot is NOT pill chasing!!! Asking for a prescription to take home, probably a pill chaser. Don’t punish people for being honest with their doctors! 1 visit prior to tonight’s and seen by the same doctor at the ER is NOT A PILL CHASER!!! Why can’t the doctors take 5 minutes to review a patient’s chart. He could familiarize himself with the patient and problems. Well next the nurse returns and again we asked about treatment. He said he was going to give my husband Toradol and a STEROID shot. Now for those of you that don’t know, and I guess Dr. Moussa too, steroids have a very adverse effect on glucose readings. SOARING sugars high and the impact they have on the blood sugar last for 5 or more days. Now my husband came in with blood sugar reading of well over 350 and he wants to pump steroids in to him!!! Asked if they were going to do any X-rays or other test. He said no. My husband also said no to their treatment plan. Already having high sugars from the pain and stress, he was not allowing Dr. Moussa to create a bigger problem, such as developing DKA, which can be deadly, by pumping him with steroids! We understand the problems with opioids as well as the next person. Are we not suppose to be honest with our doctors? But what is someone in my husbands position suppose to do when they get hurt. I guess you just have to be sure if you do get hurt make sure it doesn’t happen on the weekend or after your regular doctor’s office hours! Isn’t that the purpose of an ER to treat and help people who can’t go see there regular doctors? Simple summary outside of treating a hangnail, don’t choose this hospital. Read all the reviews for the hospital (a 2.0 review score) AND the reviews for the ER (1.8 review score). Then do as the MAJORITY of this community does and go to the hospital in NEWMAN!!! ‘Cause you NEED 2 KNOW-P. PayneThe waiting room is unclean. I have yet to see a doctor or nurse wash their hands in the ER. They go from patient to patient without as much as hand sanitizer, even though they are prodding people with needles. One person put on gloves in my room. He proceeded to use his gloved hands to push down garbage, which had overflowed onto the floor in my room, and then moved on to the next room. The surgery side of the hospital is better. With the exception of a nurse sticking my used bandages onto the food tray in a room. I can only hope the tray was cleaned before anyone used it. As with all hospitals, your level of care depends on what type of insurance you have. But the lack of cleanliness is scary.thehucklebillyfenn⭐️⭐️My mother got pneumonia in both of her lungs and was close to death’s door before she finally agreed to go to the ER. Ignoring the hours you tend to spend in a busy ER, they finally let her in a room to do breathing treatments and steroids to help fight her bad case. Her doctor and nurses seemed nice, and everything was fine and dandy for a few days and she was starting to recover, but then it all changed when her doctor couldn’t find her insurance. He kicked her out immediately even though she has Medicaid. I didn’t even know hospitals could do that to someone in critical condition like she was. I don’t even think he actually can. She’s currently out of state in a hospital in Alabama because the lack of treatment caused her to get a collapsed lung, and she needs surgery done to fix it. Would not recommend unless you NEED medical attention immediately. Am only giving it a 2 instead of 1 because she told me the nurses tried to convince him to let my mom stay until she was healed enough to be able to walk. (as you need exercise to help combat weak lungs caused by pneumonia) At least the nurses are a positive.Jimmie Ashmore⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✅ ER RecommendedVery respectful and quick response time. Went above and beyond to make sure I was as comfortable as possible. Nice staff from the front door to the back. Hope I don’t have to come back but if I do it will be here from now on.Michael ElrodDon’t come here if it’s an emergency go there if you won’t pain meds save your money and time and go to alabamaAshley SelfWorst hospital experience ever!! Went in Friday night doubled over in pain on my right side (thought maybe kidney stones or appendicitis). After the normal run through they send me to L&D because I’m 22 weeks pregnant. They did a urinalysis and saw I had a horrible kidney infection and told me I needed to stay 24hrs. I have 3 kids at home and am a single mom so I couldnt on short notice, but stayed 10hrs. Left that night with the intent on coming back when I had better prepared. Went in Sat night and then they tell me due to the severity I’d be there 48-724hrs, something more I couldnt plan for. So I told them I again needed to make arrangements for my kids for a longer stay. They told me if I leave I would have to sign an Against Medical Advice waiver and they would be calling CPS on me for endangering my baby. I told them I wasnt living in a dream world and didnt have people I could just snap my fingers at and have them help with my kids for 3 days, that I came in for a reason and I know I need to get well but they’re asking me to sacrifice 3 of my kids for 1. So they sweetly gave me 2 hours (sarcasm) to go home and figure it out before calling CPS. I showed back up and was there from 2am on Sunday morning until 2pm (a total now of 16hrs for this visit and 48hrs from the urinalysis) before they finally got the results and realized the antibiotics they were giving me had no effect and they needed to use another one and my 48-72hrs would start all over!! I told them I understand them not knowing until they got results back but that I could have been more prepared if I had not been rushed to get back and could’ve waited until they knew the game plan before returning since by the nurses own admission I was there for basically nothing that entire time!! The OBGYN finally showed up for about 10min to make snide comments about the treatment I hadnt had prior to coming in and again jetted off. I felt bullied and humiliated my entire stay, so I left after 4 rounds of antibiotics and will return to a different hospital for the treatment when I’m better situated to leave my kids. I understand the urgency, I DO, CONTRARY TO HOW THEY TREATED ME, love my baby and dont want to lose him. But feel like bullying, humiliation and condescending tones were uncalled for. I’ve never been made to feel like one of my kids was more important than the others.Ryan SharmanI used to think this was good hospital but everytime I take my wife they give her attitudes and don’t really do anything. It’s bad when someone in your family is throwing up blood and your like screw it because the emergency room ain’t going to do anything but Bill you.Clark WingoI’m surprised they even got 2 stars. Absolutely the WORST! Slow, bad attitudes and they do nothing to help.Ken LarsonDoctors are a complete joke .If it requires the research it or go then extra mile they’d rather give up instead .There isn’t a singletons a amongst them.
