Recently had my wife's surgery done here and the bill was $126,998. I had the identical procedure done myself six months earlier at a hospital in Pensacola and was charged $34,407, difference of almost $93,000 dollars. The staff was short handed, running back and forth leaving patients without the care they should have been getting. Never again! The surgery waiting room was dirty and the elevator was so dirty my daughter and I didn't want to ride in it.
my god believe the people and inside workers telling how terrible this place .. reviews from actual workers who say ALL THE TIME terrible for them and patients... particularly bad are coronary and psychiatric do not let your loved ones take a step inside ... the adminstration over psychiatric is abusive and coronary care is a place one goes to die not get better ... i lost a loved one to errors as so many have who put loved ones here... the hospital administration is SO BAD go to sacred heart hospital or pensacolas sacred heart .. DO NOT STEP IN to fwb med center .. You will get problems beyond including merca and be so disapointed and so sorry you were here
First, the BIG LIE...ER Wait Time....that's before you see a PA in triage instead of just the nurse. Average 5, 6, 7, etc. minutes IS A LIE! After Triage, you're still in lobby for 3 to 4 hrs. I was in so much pain, that I left after 2.5 hrs. They STILL billed me $100 co-pay. Most expensive temperature and BP check I ever had. On 2nd visit, finally saw Doc. They checked to make sure I wasn't having heart attack, said stomach pain was ulcer (which I later found out was no where near being correct) and discharged me. People warned me when I moved here but I didn't listen. NEVER AGAIN unless literally dying.
Never go there. All they are after is your money and they will lie to do such!
Medicare influenced hospital.Money comes first before the patients health!Doctors are owned by Medicare will NEVER go against Medicare and or any insurance's wishes. People who work there are RUDE and low class human beings not to mention a few racist workers that have been caught mimicking Mexican Americans! There is a far better hospital in Destin!
This place is by far the worst medical center I have ever seen, I ve heard plenty of locals complain about their experiences with this place I wish they all took time to write a review and make a complaint to the medical board the way I have. Most of the doctor staff is rude and under qualified, like they are just playing dress up and have no clue what they are really doing.I experienced the rudeness when i went in for a problem and the doctor had the audacity to make fun of my problems when i was clearly in excruciating pain and treated me with such disrespect i ripped my own IV out and walked out right then, and im one of the most calm rational understanding ppl ever!Then a few months later I am forced to bring my son to this hell hole because my child who went to bed completely healthy woke up partially paralyzed and unable to urinate and their ER doctor has the nerve to say my 2 yr old had a sinus infection wrote a rx for antibiotics and discharged him. Im not even medically trained and knew enough to know sinus infections dont cause those symptoms and in fact my son had not one actual sinus infection symptom at all, so obviously i carried my 2 yr old out if there overly filled bkadder and unable to barely sit up on his own and unable to walk at all and i got a second opinion at a further away but more qualified hospital to find out that my son actually had a spinal cord condition that if had been left untreated could have killed him or left him severely disabled forever.This is just my story and their are so many other peoples stories ive heard that are similar, Ive even had an EMT friend tell me he hates when he gets a call and he is required to bring the people to that place and that he always tries to find reasons to take them anywhere else. Please just do not go here drive the extra minutes to any other hospital.
If I could give no stars I would have!! By far the worst hospital I have ever been too!! To start with everyone there is rude. The lady at the front desk does not check you in all she is there for is to tell you "use the touch screen computer in the corner" which is really nasty with all the sick people touching it! There are no rooms in the ER a curtain is the only thing that separates you from the other person. Most ever person we saw did not have scrubs on, they where in tee shirts and pants. The nurse that gave my 2 year old son pain meds blew in his mouth to get him to swallow. Talk about spreading germs! The xray tech smacked her gum and seemed either really tired from working too much or on something...We left the hospital and felt so dirty we wanted to burn all the clothing we where in. Now my insurance got the bill of $4300 for xrays and one dose of meds, doesnt make any sense! NEVER EVER GO THERE!!
stay away and use another hospital if you need to stay after surgery
