Location and Directions


Earlier, my husband was transported there, by ambulance, for severe abdominal cramps. The EMT's left him in the lobby and he was informed he would be seen shortly. After 45 minutes, he was finally told he had to register. Upon another 45 minutes of waiting, while still seriously in pain, the less than pleasant receptionist informed him no one knew when exactly he would be seen. Our last 2 visits here have been a joke. Needless to say, we won't be back. (a week ago)

I Went twice. Two days back to back in February in relapse. I have PPMS. I had recently moved back to the area so a neurologist wasn't available to me yet, in the area. So the ER was my only option to get the steroids I needed to put me on the track to recovery. The first day the dr called my neurologist at the time who was 4 hours away and gave me a 5ml steroid shot and sent me on my way. The second day nothing was done. I was sent home to rest. No mri, blood test, or anything that would have been a sure sign I was in relapse was done. I phoned my ex husband who came and took me to Skyline in Nashville who immediately admitted me. I was there for two weeks. They gave me an mri and i had 7 lesions on my brain. I was then sent to physical rehab where i spent a month. If i had kept going to starr my condition would have worsened. It concerns me that nothing was done. The doctor seemed uneducated to all illnesses. I told her exactly what i needed which was mri and 1000 milligrams of steroids for 5 days. Listening to patients can sometimes help you better help them. I was distraught because i knew i was in relapse and couldn't get help. (2 weeks ago)

I recently had a cesarean and the staff in labor and delivery were amazing! Also I really like their new menu and way of ordering. (2 months ago)

Horrible labor and delivery department! They would not except our birthing plan would come get the baby and keep him in the nursery while he was sleeping even when they were asked many times to bring him back to the room after they tested/accessed him. Had issues with birth certificate info being done incorrectly. The ob was mean, condescending and rude. He actually complained because we had several visitors! Informed us that we needed to put a stop to the visitors! Mind you this was immediate family! The waiting area is small. The hospital overall needs updating. There was no photographer or lactation consultant even though the website says they have them on staff. There were a few nice nurses but it takes more than nice to be an effective caretaker. (5 months ago)

Worst people in the world work at this place. Very rude and act like they are offended if you ask a question to make sure you understand... Both Etowah and Athens are the same. Seeing the place has sold out twice in my lifetime I look forward to them closing the place down and or getting all new staff soon (2 months ago)
