I acknowledge I was late and take responsibility for my part in the problem. I however do expect for people (especially staff) to use their manners and treat people with some decency. My appointment was scheduled at 8:00AM. I arrived at 8:05AM to find the line at registration 45-50 people deep. Everyone in line was patient and kind. It was 8:30 by the time I reached the receptionist. She was the only person at the reception desks that morning and had handled the line with great proficiency and grace. She explained that I should have been asked to arrive 15 minutes prior to my appointment (which I was not) but called back to the nurse’s station in the allergy department for instruction. I was sent back to the nurse’s station. I greeted them with my name and situation. Blank stares returned my greeting. I explained the receptionist asked me to head to their desk. After an extremely long pause one of them responded coldly, “I’ll have to check with the doctor to see if he can see you.” I explained that I had been in line for 25 minutes and only a few minutes of my tardiness was under my control while keeping a positive attitude and remaining friendly. Now, I was met with a glare that could have been meant for the menacing kids who walked on her lawn instead of the sidewalk. I stood there awaiting further instruction since I had already been asked to bypass the waiting room. I was just left with harsh eyes attempting to penetrate me and burn my soul for my tardiness for what seemed like a couple minutes. She finally explained I could wait in the waiting room outside their clinic area and she’d let me know what the doc said. I obediently left and waited. She came out about five minutes later and condescendingly let me know he was unable to see me and I’d have to reschedule. I ended up wasting 50 minutes to discover I couldn’t be seen because of Essentia’s lack of communication in the scheduling process, my 5 minutes of poor punctuality (due to unscheduled road construction 🤬) and terrible staffing situation at registration. If you maintain a busy schedule do not waste your time at Essentia Health. (2 months ago)

******PLEASE SHARE****** First of all let me start off by saying that I LOVE the people of ST. Mary's hospital. I can't tell you how good their staff was to my mother and my brother, sister and me. But one bad doctor can ruin a good name for the rest! A lot of people refuse to go to the doctor because they believe that all doctors care about is making money and shoving unnecessary pills down your throat. I have been around more than my fair share of all kinds of doctors in my short period of life so far. Most of them are good people that want to help you! Now, this morning I learned that my grandmother who has recently completed chest and neck radiation treatments, called to have her pain medication prescription refilled because her throat hurts so much that she can't eat. The doctor that she spoke to (Dr. Sawyer, one of her doctors) refused to refill her prescription because my grandmother cancelled her appointments for brain radiation because she does not want to have her brain radiated. Her scans show nothing in her brain, their logic was that her form of cancer often spreads to the brain and there might be something they can't see so they basically wanted to radiate her brain for good measure. My grandmother chose not to get the brain radiation as it can cause permanent short-term memory loss and loss of ability to speak correctly, etc. Her primary oncologist respected her decision and cancelled all of her appointments for brain radiation. Her primary doctor was not informed by Dr. Sawyer that she wanted to refill her pain med prescription and Dr. Sawyer simply refused to do so because "she should've come in for her appointments" . Correct me if I'm wrong but I feel that this is an abuse of power especially when it's her decision. Whether or not she wants the radiation for something that MAY or MAY NOT even be there. And she need she medication to be able to eat so she can heal properly from the last round of radiation and chemotherapy. Doctors like Dr. Sawyer that just want to book all the appointments and treatments they can so they can get their money are the reason people believe all doctors are bad and in cahoots with big pharma! I know that most of the doctors/nurses/aids at St. Mary's are wonderful people who go out of their way to go above and beyond for their patients! So there is no need for doctors like this to continue working there and giving all the wonderful other doctors a bad name! (5 months ago)
