Above average service in the Emergency Room
I went to the emergency room with abdominal pain. I waited a little less than thirty minutes to get into triage.
After triage I waited about ten to fifteen more minutes until I was taken back into the emergency area. The place was so crowded that people were stationed in the walk area around the emergency desk. I was at station K. A friendly employee talked to me and took my information and told me the name of my doctor.
I waited about an hour before I was taken for a CT scan which took less than ten minutes (no waiting in radiology).
When I returned, it took about another forty five minutes for the doctor to read the results and come and talk to me. He explained exactly what my problem was and prescribed two pain killers for me to take immediately and some other prescriptions for me to fill at the pharmacy.
I waited about ten minutes for the pain killers to arrive. They had me wait about an hour before releasing me.
The entire visit lasted about four hours, which considering the overcrowded state, was reasonable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The doctor was knowledgeable and took the time to sit and talk with me about my condition.
