I went one time and am getting all kinds of bills. I only had simple lab work done. They can tell me what one of the bills was for but not the other one. How do they not know why they are billing me $600? I already paid for the 1 day I was there and would just like to know why Iam being charged more for work on a different day that I was never even there. Too bad they can't tell me. If you don't pay they just try to wreck your credit. Beware of going here. You might get extra "mystery" bills. (3 months ago)

It is unfortunate that there are so many bad reviews. Portneuf is by no means as bad as portrayed in the many ultra negative reviews. I feel compelled to offer my own experiences. Three years ago, I was in a severe motorcycle accident which crushed 2 vertebrae and caused permanent damage to my spinal cord, leaving me as a total paraplegic. The neurology team put me back together by inserting two rods into my spine to hold everything in place. I spent 3 weeks in ICU and the care of the doctors and nurses was absolutely superlative! They also recommended that I go to Craig Hospital in Denver for rehabilitation. This was a recommendation with the best interests of the patient in mind. Craig is one of the top three hospitals in the country for spinal cord injury and it was the absolute best place to go for rehab for my injury. I could write several more paragraphs of my experiences with wound care and urology which are both stellar but I don't believe most people would read that far. Portneuf, as any other hospital, may not be perfect but it deserves far better reviews than the majority of what is written here. Thank You, Portneuf!! (4 months ago)

I was in the.er a few days ago for bad stomach pain and back pain. The doctor told me I had back pain because I was fat and my stomach probably hurt due too the pain medicine I take. I tried to explain to him I don't really take it in the first place and two that yes addiction runs in my family and I work my ass off everyday to not go down that road. I literally was devastated especially after he said I have to check on the weight limit for the cat scan cause you might be too fat. I understand they are there to help but when I'm so mad I'm literally crying in a ball we have a problem. Luckily they got a bigger machine and found out I have ovarian cysts. The doctor was determined to find out why I was there however he needs to work on his manners because it could end up bad If he does something like this to someone who can't hold their anger and punch him. Like I wanted too. Also was in two days prior to this for shortness of breath and chest pain and all they did was blood work no ekg. My primary care is livid about this.... There are good doctors and good people just gotta stop cutting corners and use manners, I didn't think it was that hard. (a month ago)

I have worked for Portneuf for the past three years--the compassion and care shown to patients makes me very proud to work here. I came from the University of Utah and am happy to see that so many of the core patient-centered goals align from that organization to ours. Additionally, I recently had a surgery at PMC and was so impressed by everyone who helped me. You can tell the employees--and all of the medical staff--really care about the patients. (3 months ago)

Still haven't' heard back from PMC regarding my dads mishap in the ER last year. I just got a notice in the mail regarding our INS. It seems Regence Blue Shield holders are being charged large "surprise" bills because PMC Er Docs. are not in Network. We have been told to seek any care at Bingham Memorial hospital, Easter Idaho Regional Medical Center, Power County Hospital, Caribou Memorial Hospital , Bear Lake Memorial, Franklin County Medical center and Neil J Redfield Memroial Hospital. Its to bad we can not go to our local hospital but again i am doubting the care they provide , through experience with my father. (a week ago)
