Location and Directions


I will NEVER come to this hospital again and am strongly recommending anyone who is in need of emergency care to avoid this place at all cost! Came into the emergency room at 12:15am with acute severe stomach pain. It’s now 6:21am and have yet to see a physician. The check-in process is totally inefficient and the staff provides no assurance of when patients will be seen. They are also not friendly. You’ve been warned! Find another emergency room to go to even it if requires driving a substantial distance. In retrospect they should probably not offer emergency room services at this hospital. (2 months ago)

If I could give no stars I would! The level of disrespect and unprofessionalism is outrageous. The reception and registration employees were rude and acted as if they didn't want to be bothered. All they wanted to do was talk to each other (even about the patients) complain about how they were ready to go home, check their phones and eat/drink vending machine snacks.. I came in the ER at 11:05pm with a pain level of "8" on a scale of 1-10 here it is 5:00 AM!! Now I'm being told by the reception area staff that they're out of beds.... mind you, I was being told that I was next to be called 2 hours ago. About 10 people that came after me were called to a room. The "RN Wayne" was SO RUDE and he talked to myself and others as if we were uninvited guest at his home. He even walked off without giving me the contact information I requested to file a complaint. Please require all staff to take customer service/professional training or get a entire new wait room staff. Maybe even hire a secret patient to observe the area WITHOUT notifying staff.

I'm here at ER hell now. I am having chest pain pain in my jaw and pain in my left are. It is 6:56 PM April 18th. I have been here since 3:30 in pain. I ask the triage nurse for something for pain. She said that I was assigned to room 12. So I want to know what is the problem. Why has it been almost an hour and room 12 is not ready. My chest is hurting so bad. If something is really wrong and I can be having a heart attack I will sue the hell out of this hospital. They need to do a lot better. Bad when you cant get help when you are in pain and you are sick. (a month ago)

went to the hospital (dekalb medical), last night because my tonsils are swollen & they swabbed my throat for strep throat, it came back negative.. BUT the doctor came in the room and said "your test came back negative, BUT we're going to treat you like you have strep throat, we're going to give you three medicines to help" I looked at him like he was a complete idiot, I asked him as well as two other doctors "why are you treating me & giving me medicine for something that i don't have" why is it that there is NOTHING wrong with my throat (THEY CONFIRMED) but yet you're prescribing me medicine and want me to Take these three medicines for something that isn't remotely wrong with me. basically saying "we going to cure your pretend illness" instead of them saying "okay, since its not strep throat, we're gonna see what else the problem is" no they didn't say that, instead they just threw medicine in my face, THIS is why a lot of people abuse prescription drugs. this is why people abuse OTC drugs. I now have three medicines that are not going to benefit me in any type of way in my possession. so. here we are, I'm trying to figure out what to do. my tonsils got worse overnight, my doctor isn't open until tomorrow, but i have three medicines that I don't need 😊 Thanks DeKalb medical. you've helped me so much (2 months ago)

came in because had a deep gash on my thumb right on top the first knuckle closest to your hand. Told me all I needed was 3 stitches (which they charge me $500 dollars for). The african lady who checks you and gives you a band or whatever before you go see the doctor is Rude (not intentionally I think just to ignorant and blunt to be working in a hospital) So the wound heals and now I see I actually LOST mobility in my thumb i can no longer make a thumbs up or raise my thumb all the way up and I still have a wee bit of pain 3 months later. So they really misdiagnosed my injury since it's apparent I needed more then stitches Not to mention by the time I was about to get treatment(3 hours waiting) I had been waiting so long I was about to fall asleep from all the pain. I seriously considered walking out the hospital with my wound due to how long it took me to get stitched up and the fact the pain was really setting in. They stick you in a room and make you wait 20 minutes at least for everything for every room they stick you in. And a male nurse actually made fun of me because I almost passed out from the stitches(I should have cursed him out but was probably out of it from the whole ordeal), great hospitality DeKalb medical!
