Location and Directions


The testing that was performed was good all the nurses that we had contact with were awesome some of the doctors that treated us were unprofessional and unethical. They were wrong or lied and then hospital policy not followed little to no communication and one doctor would not inform family of patients conditions or treatment unless they are there in the room when he comes in. Quote from the doctor I do not have time to make calls to talk about patient. My opinion if you can go anywhere else do so. Worst treatment we have received in central and central north Florida (a month ago)

Wish I could give it zero stars. I sometimes come here when there’s something serious going on. I have severe back, neck and head pain and I feel like I’m going to pass out. I almost fainted a few times. They told me there was nothing wrong with me. They downplayed my injury and didn’t care to figure out what was going on. I came here before for stomach problems and told me the same thing. I then went to shands and they told me there was a problem and I should see a stomach doctor. They don’t seem to care here. Only a couple good doctors in the emergency room. Won’t ever be coming here again. UPDATE: I went to shands and I was severely dehydrated. Needed an IV and other medicines. North Florida could’ve done SO MUCH more. But failed me. Thanks! (a month ago)

Mixed feelings about this place, possibly the care you get varies on time of day and the staff you get. I’ve personally had no problems but relations and friends have had. ER waiting time is short, but once in the Sacred inner sanctum it’s a long wait to see a doc, this has never varied. Once in a room (normally shared) you are checked frequently with care and obvious concern for your care, this hasn’t always been the case, vast improvement recently. (a month ago)

My experience was very good. The staff that was working with me made me fill very comfortable and at ease before my surgery. (2 weeks ago)

We went into the ER here because my mom had previously visited for a broken collarbone and had a fast and pleasant experience. She was visiting out of town and had just switched insurance plans and didn't have any of her info. This did not affect the treatment she received in any negative way. My husband and I recently brought my daughter into the ER for an infection. And, the 20 hour visit was like night and day difference. The night shift was awesome, things were rolling along, the staff was friendly, organized and seemed to be operating and communicating very efficiently. I even told them so! Not so once the day crew arrived. There was a lot of waiting, with less communication. After the first 3 hours, we were told she would be admitted, but wound up spending 20 hours in the ER, because a room wasn't available. In the end, we left with out needed and prescribed pain meds, due to disorganization and well, frankly IDK. I was told the best option to resolve this was for me to drive the next day 80 mile round trip to pick up a handwritten RX. I find it absolutely absurd and unacceptable level of care and professionalism. It is frustrating that I should have to spend my time and gas the day after my daughter gets out of the hospital to remedy the staffs' oversight. What started off as a very pleasing visit ended the exact opposite. I'm sure I will be going to Shands (even though it's farther) the next time my family needs to visit the hospital. Oh, and we could smell something, a cross between electrical fire and fuel, which we were told was helicopter exhaust presumably coming thru the A/C system. (a week ago)
