Urgent Care: What to Know, When to Go »
We needed an ear, nose and throat specialist, but the wait at our HMO was two weeks. What now? An emergency room seemed like overk…
Hi; My name is Jerry Schafer. My father was a patient at Nortons Hospital in Louisville, Ky Oct. 27th until he passed early Monday Nov. 2nd. I can't say enough good about the nurses on the fifth floor during his (our) time there. Dad was in three different wings on that floor during his stay. The professional attitudes of ALL the nurses we encountered was unprecedented. You have to understand...we have a very large family and we had several members of the family there at all times. The staff NEVER once seemed upset, irritated or put out of place because of our presence. We no doubt caused confusion, lack of space for them to do their jobs and just overall chaos at times with our chatter and overcrowding of their space. I commend them for putting up with this family of 13 kids, 32 grandkids and 31 great grandkids that took over the fifth floor during this difficult time of losing our father. Again, from the bottom of our hearts, THANKS!!!
I can't stand my PCP (for reasons I won't get into here), and have been avoiding getting medical attention for weeks.This past Saturday, upon seeing my rapidly declining condition, my boyfriend rushed me to First Stop Urgent Care on E. Broadway.My BF called the office while we were in route, to confirm office hours and to make sure I could be seen. The receptionist (sorry, I didn't catch your name) was warm and welcoming, and quickly assisted me through the paperwork upon arrival. I was seen in under 15 minutes!!!I'm not sure what to say about Lyndsay and Elma, other than the treatment they gave me was extraordinary, and they both went over and beyond anything I could have expected. My condition turned for the better almost immediately, and my post care instructions were clear and concise. First Stop Urgent Care, will be my only stop from now on... Thanks to these lovely, caring, and knowledgeable ladies.~Cheers
We went there a couple of times and I think it's all about your luck. You may go and find a good doctor, or find a doctor who has know idea what's going on with your child, and can misdiagnose. They made us and our daughter do an unnecessary painful medical procedure that she absolutely doesn't need. And all the doctor could do was apologize for her stupidity afterwards. My other daughter went once for a headache, and the doctor was trying to convince us that he's 100% sure that she has a migraine and wanted to give her a migraine shot right away. We insisted on a CT scan , turns out she has a simple sinus infection that she could take antibiotics and get rid of it. Bottom line ..... if it could wait, take your child to their regular pediatrician. That will save you and your child the stress and fear and an unnecessary painful procedure your child may not need.
My son recently needed emergency care for kidney stones. The entire treatment from beginning to end could not have been better! Beautiful facilities and compassionate, professional care.
