I had my yearly mammogram on Thursday. Everyone was so nice and friendly. I had the 3D done this time. It was much easier. The whole process was very efficient at the Women's Center. I was in and out quickly. (a month ago)

The first time i went to the ER, i was experiencing shortness of breath. I was 16 weeks pregnant and got taken back pretty quick and treated. However, the floors were absolutely disgusting. It looks like they never clean the baseboards. I went back tonight at 32 weeks pregnant to be seen for a few symptoms. We waited an hour and a half and never got called back, so we left since i have an OB appointment early in the morning. This time the floors was just as bad and the bathroom in the ER waiting room was horrible! There was dry pee on the floor and trash everywhere. I’m a little concerned about delivering my baby in such a filthy hospital. Unfortunately, I’ve already paid my OB who works in the Women Medical Center (which is very clean), otherwise I’d switch hospitals. (3 months ago)

I recently had to have a cholecystectomy (gallbladder removed), not before having to make a trip to the ED, weeks before my surgery with extreme abdominal pain. The ED staff was efficient, courteous & caring. Upon being referred to a digestive specialist, I was informed I needed surgery. I began to schedule my procedure with SAMC. My surgical experience, starting with registration & ending in the CDU (Clinical Decision Unit), was Top Notch! Thanks for the great care & experience. Keep up the good work! (in the last week)

The medical care at this place is excellent. However the policy that they use to give information about a loved one under their care needs to be revised. I reside in Elba my wife was in a room yesterday when she was admitted, I was up there checking on her and all was looking ok. I went home & this morning when I tried to call her room was informed she had been moved to critical care. When asked about her condition or if I could speak with her I was told I didn't have a code word to prove I was who I said I was (her husband) & the only way to get a code would be a personal appearance at the hospital which would be fine except I am on a fixed income & can't afford to drive back & forth from Elba to Dothan everyday. I would like to personally thank the rude nurses that work that floor for all their obvious I could care less attitudes for people trying to find out about their loved ones under their care. You have earned a 5 star rating in the rudeness , I could careless attitude. Congratulations for a job not well done in human to human interaction. It's a good thing all of you don't have the same snooty outlook. Update : the nurse supervisor Sarah is really super she got my problem taken care of, I cannot thank her enough. (2 months ago)

I recently had a work related accident where I fractured my wrist and had compound fractures in one of my ankles. From the time I was attended to by the paramedics until the last day of my stay at SAMC,I witnessed nothing short of professionalism by all members of the team. I would especially like to thank PCA- Bailey,Maddie,and Nicole. RN- Amber,Daniel,and Areal. DR.- Avula,Jennings ,and Guin. All of the food service staff and cleaning staff were great too. My visit to the hospital was definitely unexpected but if for any reason I have to return to the hospital in Dothan, I will choose Southeast Alabama Medical Center. Thanks Team. (2 weeks ago)
