Was out of town with my two daughters (9 and 5) and my mother visiting my 101 y.o. grandmother. My oldest daughter was tired and ran into the door frame at the hotel which left a very deep gash on through her brow. Immediately, placed a towel and pressure on it and we drove to Morton Plant at about 10:30 PM about a week ago. We were all very tired and shaken up and beginning with the police officer at the ER entrance and ending with the last person with whom we spoke, we had the best experience (as good as it can possibly be) at the ER. EVERYONE was empathetic, helpful and VERY human. WE didn't feel like a number. The process of checking in was smooth, they gave both my daughters blankets (it was a bit chilly) to use. The speed at which each member of the triage team met with us was awesome. EVERYTHING was explained clearly and questions we all had were answered. This was our first visit to ER with my daughters. The sutures were done beautifully! The PA used the smallest thread and needle they had. My daughter was terrified but the staff there were honest and answered all her questions since she has a lot of them. They were patient and empathetic. My daughter had no pain since they put a local anathesia via cotton swab on the gash prior to using a needle to numb it some more. Thank GOD! The PA even asked how I was doing while I watched him placing the sutures! 13 stitches (3 inside and 10 outside) later my daughter was once again smiling and happy to have the traumatic experience over. She had worked herself up so much that she was trembling. The fear of the getting stitches was far worse for her than actually getting them. THANK YOU ALL at Morton Plant Hospital on the evening of July 22, 2010 and wee hours of the morning of the 23rd! Yesterday, my daughter had her sutures removed at the pediatrician's office. EVERYONE there who looked at them commented how excellent the sutures looked. My daughter's best friend's mother who is also doctor mentioned the same. We are blessed to have the most frightening moment for us turn out so well. We are also blessed to not have had anything more serious happen. THANK YOU EVERYONE!

I wanted to share the experience that we had today at Statmed. My son is chronically ill, and we usually go to the emergency room every couple weeks to get IV fluids. The wait time in emergency rooms is terrible not to mention the overcrowding and lack of space in which to wait the 6 to 8 hours we usually wait. I wanted to try something else, so I called places to see where they would administer IV fluids. Statmed said they would. We conveniently parked out front, not in a parking lot a block away, and walked into a very welcoming, clean and comfortable waiting area. After a few minutes we were taken to a room. Within the next 15 minutes an IV was started and he began receiving IV fluids almost immediately. The office staff, nurse and Dr. Cook were wonderful. I felt very comfortable and trusted them explicitly, which is not how I usually am when it comes to my son. The room that he was in was private with a television that my son was thrilled received all the TV stations. Everyone was comforting and very caring. The entire time we were there was wonderful. I would not change anything about the visit. My son received care in such a timely matter that if he would have waited another six hours (in the ER) he would have surely been admitted. If you need care I highly recommend this clinic it was wonderful!
Dr. Cook and his team provide excellent care. He shows great concern for is patients and addresses all concerns in a friendly manner. Too bad he is not a primary care physician....I would definitely sign up under him!!
