Miserable experience. Waited with a 3 inch framing nail in my arm for 4 hours!! Only pain meds was a Tylenol the entire wait. Doctor took 5 minutes to pull the nail (which had 2 small wire barbs on it). Took a video of the removal because all he did was twist and pull aggressively with no worry of possible nerve damage (2 months ago)

Every visit to Ashe Memorial has been wonderful. The doctors have been friendly and they have the best nursing staff around. (a month ago)

I’ve came here many times and it has took them hours just to tell me if I have strep, or if I just have a cold. They are not a good hospital at all. Would rather go an extra hour to Boone hospital and get seen immediately. (3 months ago)

First visit I filed a formal complaint which was addressed and handled to my satisfaction. Second visit a year later, won't ever be coming back to this place. It's ashame because the need for a local hospital is great, but I'll drive the hour to Boone. It's like the staff doesn't even speak to each other. And the Dr. Couldn't even bother to walk all the way into the room... As if popping his head in the door, leaving it wide open to explain test results is some how remotely professional or acceptable. Whose in the hallway hearing my personal medical issues? Never again. (8 months ago)

I arrived at the ER at 4:30pm sunday the 4th. I waited to be seen for what it seems to be the flu. I was told the same as everyone else that it would be 2 to 3 hours before i would be seen. I watched the waiting room fill up twice and empty twice before i even made it back to be seen. Most everyone was there for the same thing. Masks on everyones face. After 4 and a half hours in the waiting room they finally call me back. I lay in that room for 5 more hours waiting to see the doctor. I was told there was only one doctor working and that i would just have to be patient. I was patient. 9 hours worth of patients while being very sick. I eventually asked my nurse if there was a chance that the doctor would say im sorry i cant help you because we have no flu swabs to test you with... i told her that if that happened after waiting to be seen that i would loose my mind! She said we dont want that. I said no. Being sick and in jail is not my idea of a good time. she said i cant answer that. I dont know. Just be patient. I waited more. I asked for my nurse again. I told her to go ahead and do what she needed to do so i could leave. I can be miserable and sick at home. She said i would need to fill out a form stating i was refusing care. I said what ever you need me to do. She came back and said you dont have to sign anything since you were not seen. You are free to go. And go i did. The administration at the hospital did a very poor job of scheduling enough doctors to help those in need during this flu outbreak. It is sad and it angers me to no end! Im sure everyone working were doing the best they could with the amount of people they had on staff. Its not their fault that not enough doctors were scheduled. Those that i spoke with were nice enough. They arent the problem. I can see that the hospital doesnt really care about its employees or the people in the community that depend on the hospital. Shameful.... (5 months ago)
