Worst experience in the emergency room with three separate physicians. I went in for a migraine around midnight 3 days after giving birth at another hospital. The first physician questioned all of my symptoms and was downright rude. When I told her I didn’t feel like she was listening to me, she said she couldn’t help with if I was going to question her and inferred that maybe I should just leave. I asked for another physician but there wasn’t one available. After finishing her exam she concluded that I did have a migraine due to my epidural and I was sent to another area for a spinal patch. The physician that performed that procedure asked me why on earth I would have given birth at Abbott in Minneapolis when I could get stuck in rush hour. He actually scoffed when I said I used a midwife for delivery. After the procedure they didn’t have me get up and walk or anything, just wheeled back to the ER. Another physician then came in and asked if I had actually given birth because they could see all my medical records at my primary clinic but couldn’t find details at Abbott. He then told me I should just be seen at Abbott if I have more issues. He wrote me a pain med prescription and left. Again, no one had me get up and walk after the procedure on my spine. I tried to get off of the cot and it wasn’t locked. I waited and no one came back and I couldn’t see a help button anywhere. I took off my monitoring stuff and no one came in. I was finally able to maneuver off my bed and then get all my belongings together that were stuck under the bed after about 20 minutes. The only positive experience was the lady that came in to take my medical information. She was very kind and empathetic and even asked if she could turn the light on with my migraine. Unfortunately, when the bill came, none of my insurance information was on file so I then had to take care of that with two separate billing companies. I went to this ER because my husband needed to stay with our 2 older kids at midnight on a school night and take care of the newborn. It’s 5 minutes from my home and he was able to easily drop me off and pick me up. I tried calling my mom and SIL and neither answered to drive me back to Abbott. The lack of sympathy, terrible bedside manner, and condescending style of questioning by three different physicians while I was alone and at my most vulnerable was enough to tell EVERYONE I know to take your business elsewhere.

I was treated very well at here. As a foreigner, I’m barely know any procedures which they will do for my wounded hand. But they did explain everything very clear and calm me down during the whole treatment. I believe they took care of my hand carefully, Especially in the late evening. Thanks for the doctor and all nurses! (3 weeks ago)

Idiot doctors that never know what they're doing. This place should be bankrupt. No one should ever go here! All doctors should be fired and reported! They ask people for information under drugs just to bill them! They create more expenses for patients and seriously need to be investigated. These are doctors that couldn't get a job at a real hospital. (3 weeks ago)

Every Nurse/Doctor/ Care Provider was helpful and had my best interest in mind. It was quite the experience, but I am glad I had the care and expertise of this staff! ER- Surgical- All Awesome! Thank you! (a month ago)

Went to the ER at 11pm on a weeknight. It was not very busy and I only had to wait a few minutes to be seen. The nursing staff were all wonderful, very patient, and considerate. I am sure I was not the most pleasant to deal with, as I came in crying from pain that turned out to be my first ever kidney stone. But everyone did what they could to help make me comfortable, and quickly got through the needed tests, scans, etc. I had the unfortunate diagnosis, my pain (temporarily) relieved, prescriptions, and instructions, and I was back at home within 3 hours. I recently moved to this side of the metro, so this was my first visit to the hospital. I previously lived in the NE metro, and so used St John's ER in Maplewood (fortunately only a few times!). But compared to St. John's, I would pick Fairview any time!! (2 months ago)
