Been to the ER twice now for the same reason and still they refuse to treat the patient I was with. I don't understand what the disconnect is here. None of the nurses or doctors care about the patient no matter their ailment. Nurse for the patient I was with also acknowledged that they improperly fed medicine through an IV that was supposed to be an injection. This resulted in the patient visibly shaking, almost throwing up, and almost passing out. I had to call the nurse in three times and she proceeded to do absolutely nothing. I will never go back.

Watauga Medical Center is one of the most expensive hospitals in North Carolina. I advise people to shop around and you will find much better prices for the same procedure and service. (a month ago)

Nurses of 2West are AWESOME. My stay was not of my choice and their care and consideration (and inspiration) was a main factor in my healing. The food was great. I will always and all ways appreciate the kindness and understanding and dedication of the staff. (5 months ago)

My mom was in the ER and choking and they never came in until we had been there for right at an hour. They need help they should be 2 doctors working and keeping things moving smooth. (2 months ago)

Took 8 hours to get four stitches in my finger. Think about that. 8 hours. A nurse also locked me out of the bathroom that leads to my room by accident. A lot of the staff seems like they’re not sure what they’re doing, but at least my doctor was great and smart and they helped me get a ride home at 5am. Got there at 7pm btw. (7 months ago)
