8 hours and waiting. Not to mention the way in with how I got information was not the best. No one seemed to pass my information on to the next. It was like pulling teeth.Also one nurse taunted that she had gotten 2 beds for her patients while the nurses tending to me hadn't.

I came into Palmetto Richland Hospital for a supposedly outpatient procedure at 8:30am which I didn't get to OR until 11:30. I started to come around in recovery at1:30pm. After about an hour and half I questioned the nurse where my family and why I was still here. The nurse's told me that they were waiting on a room for me. I replied that I was in for an outpatient procedure. I finally got a phone to call my and the doctor to explain he decided the incision was larger than anticipated. Needless to say it is now 7:44 pm and I'm still laying in recovery while people who came after me have been admitted to rooms.VERY ANGRY!!!
My father, an 85 yr old Retired Army Veteran has had his cancer return. The VA wants to fast track my father because of the severity of his condition: he was previously diagnosed with Colon cancer. He was treated for that. Fast forward..his cancer has returned so I need a letter from his Dr. I called and picked up records Tuesday. Called Wednesday, and went to pick up the letter Friday only to be advised by the LMSW, her vacation was the next week so she would do it when she returned. The urgency of the matter was NOT recognized. We've been told to make him comfortable since there's nothing left to be done The LEAST I think they should do is acknowledged how much he's sacrificed fighting for his country but he can't even get a letter in a timely fashion. I'm going back Monday and I pray I can get the letter needed to fast track him through his final days at the VA
Dr. Merit save my daughters life. He and he staff was excellent. I would recommend him to everyone if there having problems with cyst.
I was treated with respect, care and compassion from the time I walked in until I walked out. The staff and my Doctor, Terry Smith were wonderful! He was very caring, kind and explained everything and answered all my questions. I would highly recommend him and this facility! Best care in SC!
Worst medical care I've ever had. Hostile doctor, treated patients with contempt, you will suffer in agony because they refuse to acknowledge that chemo causes pain. Stay away.
