Location and Directions


Worst ER experience ever!! I arrived at 10am and at 5:15pm Still didn't get to see a nurse or doctor. I heard the staff talk about their weddings, DJ and what to order for lunch. One nurse argued on the phone about some blood work sent! When I inquired about when I'll be seen I heard one of the nurse telling the assistant that they are tending to sick people and will get to me whenever! I liked this hospital until today!! Horrible experience. (2 months ago)

You're better off at going to Docs Urgent Care 10 mins away on Chase Ave depending on what you're dealing with. Go here, if you have a bullet in your chest, other than that, think twice in going to the ER. You'll probably spend more time in the registration room than inside a room with an 'educated' doctor. Seems as if anyone can get titled nowadays. (2 months ago)

I never write reviews, but this experience was so terrible, I feel compelled to let people know about it. I got an infection in my hand, and I went to a walk in clinic on Sunday and the Dr there told me to go to the ER right away because I started getting red streaks going up my arm leading from the infection, and she said that's very serious, and I needed to get I.V antibiotics. I came to St. Mary's and regretted every second of it. After waiting 4 hours, and having no RN or Dr. come see me, I asked them if I was going to be seen anytime soon (it wasn't busy, believe me I've seen it busy, and it definitely wasn't busy). A RN came in shortly after that, and I explained to him why I was there, and showed him the red streak on my arm, and told him it had gotten slightly worse since I got there. He then took out a pen AND DREW ON MY ARM (who does that?!) around the line to "get proof that it was getting worse" basically calling me a liar right to my face. THEN he came in and put in an IV catheter, and I waited a couple more hours, so the person I was with asked for an update as to when we would be seeing the Dr. A young girl with long strawberry blond hair came over and started being very nasty, demeaning, and passive aggressive saying things like "there's people dying in the hallways of resperitory distress" (there wasn't and everyone was either sitting, or dragging their feet moving slower than molasses) and basically saying I was of no importance to them at all, so I said if my infection spreading is of no concern to you people I want someone to come take out my catheter now so I can go home. A younger male nurse came over and was being very caring and understanding (how all people should be in the health care field) and advised I wait for the Dr. so I did. The Dr came in shortly after, looked at my hand for 20 seconds and ordered the IV antibiotics. after they came down it took 1/2 hr to administer them and I was out the door. I can't believe it took me threatening to leave for them to do something. The worst part of the whole thing is that this morning when I was looking over my paperwork one of the diagnosis was PARANOIA!!! Why?! Because I stood up for myself?!?! That stuff is forever in your record and it was like a slap in the face. The Dr saw me for a total of 2 minutes and he just looked at my hand, how on earth can you come up with a mental health diagnosis?!?! I am SO GLAD I had a witness with me. They were SO unprofessional it was unbelievable. The Dr waking the halls throwing disinfectant at and joking around with the nasty girl with strawberry blond hair, but make people wait for 7 hours for a bag of IV antibiotics. I have NEVER in my life been so mistreated at a place that's supposed to care for you. They better remove that as a diagnosis or I will be getting a lawyer involved as that is absolutely considered slander in my book. You can't just throw around mental health diagnoses. It is safe to say I will NEVER set foot in this "hospital" EVER again. I would also like to point out that I'm a very understanding person. I understand things get backed up, forgotten, busy, whatever, but all they had to do was pop in and say "we're sorry it's taking so long. We'll try to get to you as soon as possible" it's really not that difficult to show some compassion. It's really not. (5 months ago)

I would give a 0 if there was as An option. My girlfriend was brought by ambulance, only to be left sitting in a wheelchair with vomit all over her,scared for her life, while being ignored for hours, this hospital is one of the absolute worst hospitals, apparently there is little to no grievance policy because all they do is put you in touch with a patient advocate who does not call back or answer the phone. I suggest you stay far away from this horrible place (3 weeks ago)

BE VERY CAREFUL WITH ANY SURGERYS. Went for stint in left leg developed gangrene and lost left leg above the knee 15 weeks later. Now I am getting an artificial leg. There were so many things that went wrong, I don't know where to start. I do know that seeing BLACK toes should have told the so called drs that something was terribly wrong with my toes and my foot. There are just to many mistakes to mention in my care and their attitudes when told of problems with meds. (a week ago)
