cont. worst visit.
dire emergency for us to have a seat and wait until shift change which was 7am and THEN there would be a dr there. i was VERY upset when they told me this because i had been sitting there since 10 pm the night before and no one mentioned this to us. if i had known this was the situation i would have went home slept and came in when there was a dr there.. i mean when i come to the ER i expect there the be a dr on staff, what kind of emergency room doesnt have a dr. so 11 hours passed when they FINALLY called my name which happend to take 2 minutes in the room in the back where i was then released to find out that they didnt know exactly what was wrong with me and all they could do was refer me to another dr. do not go here its the worst place ever
