This is a Hell Hole I was in the Hospital for a few days and the E R was very good i went in by a ambulance they were very efficient, then I was admitted it was very nice and I was treated well for a day or so then it all changed. My case was given to a dr jabber he is one of the rudest dr i have ever had the displeasure of ever dealing with run away as fast as you can (in the last week)

I had the unfortunate pleasure of being seen by NP Blackledge. She can in the room with and attitude and continued the have one. She prescribed me medication without properly examining me. This has by far been the worst er visit I have experienced (3 weeks ago)

I'm having fake medical bills from this hospital show up on my insurance claims. That is insurance fraud and I'm willing to press charges. I've never been to this city and never been treated by one of its Dr's. Shame on them. (a month ago)

Was examined by doctor Raymond Whitehead orthopedic surgeon for a worker's comp injury to my right knee I informed him I had moved from Michigan where the injury occurred and had two surgeries and was diagnosed with a deranged knee and was looking for a doctor I compared Michigan's medical treatment to mississippi treatment and think I offended dr. Whitehead he put my right leg across his lap and with his right thumb he jammed it into the side of my knee with all his strength I had to kick him away from me yelling that it hurt what he was doing dr. Whitehead stood up told me it look like arthritis and left the room it left a quarter sized bruise on the side of my knee that was black I'm 66 years old and I've never experienced anything like that would never visit dr. Whitehead ever again compared to Michigan Mississippi has the most friendly respectful caring compassionate down-to-earth God loving people I've ever met (4 weeks ago)

Run away as fast as you physically possibly can Run in the opposite direction of forrest general hospital...or be prepared to be ignored of the issues that brought you there misdiagnosed and be told go see your primary doctor to get a real diagnosis and if you need pain MGMT meds to alleviate your pain... bahahaha...(DRUMROLL)...well they don't do call ins to pharmacy's (anymore)...and apparently they don't care that the reason your in there hospital is cause ur in PAIN and 8 on a scale to 10...they didn't even write up a work restrictions due to my pain...lite duty bedrest etc...the cost of my visit one days pay from work $250.00 $75 insurance copay which leaves me in worse shape now than before my decision to gamble with Forrest general hospital...they have nooooooooo business in health care (2 weeks ago)
