Outstanding care from the Emergency Department, to xray, and my stay in the hospital. Great doctors, nurses, housekeeping staff and food service staff were always so friendly, could not have asked for a better experience. Have had lots of health issues over the years and have been in many health systems and this one provided the best care so far. (a week ago)

Dirty Lab!...I went into portage to have my blood drawn 6 months ago, I caught the woman w/ a big rip in her glove, when I said something she replied, "yes, they said to do this, its easier to find a vein (mine are huge) I reported her to Joan. Yesterday I went back to have blood drawn this time w/ a different woman, again the whole tip of her glove cut off, I pointed this out, she gave me the same response, again I reported it to Joan. The 1st time is an oversight, the 2nd time is malicious and not a matter of ignorance, how many times does this have to happen?? get gloves that FIT!..Joan said she reported to her administrator the 1st time..and yet it happened again. I cant go to a different lab as I doubt my insurance will cover a different lab (a week ago)

A very caring, knowledgeable professional. I highly recommend him. (in the last week)

I was told my child doesn’t have health insurance and they wouldn’t charge me because I didn’t know that the state canceled him. THEY DID anyway! I would’ve went home it was just a rash. And I have to pay 113 for a dumbass doctor to tell me to buy AD ointment. I’m not paying this bull! Worst hospital ever I was I could move somewhere that the doctors were useful. A giant joke.

TERRIBLE!! NO PAIN KILLERS OR ANTIBIOTICS FOR CUT OFF FINGER TIPS My son caught the tips of his fingers in machinery. Happily, the bone and fingernails were fine, but he lost the pads of his two fingers. Dr. Ranschke simply glued them closed and sent us home without pain killers or antibiotics. After three nights of waking up, I called to request even a few pain killers and was refused. Infection set in, so we had to deal with all that. All those nerve endings in the finger tips. OUCH!
