Good Shepherd Medical Center: "Good Shepherd Medicine Clinic was my primary care facility. Long waiting times, lackadaisical attitude, don't answer their phone or check their messages. Wrote the wrong prescription and took a week for anyone to even call back, after I had started calling main office. Corrected wrong prescription with another wrong prescription. I cried at the Kroger. " - Valerie

Scott & White Memorial Hospital: "The facility is dirtty. Gave my husband mrsa on a routine surgery he had three times previously. He never had mrsa before. But the surgery ran five hours late and they took less than half the time the surgery was supposed to take. They mix up blood tests and x-rays. The emergency room takes a minimum of five hours. They had heart attack patients coming in on the ambulance and placed them in the waiting room and gave them aspirin. Scott and white used to be stellar, but they have gotten to big for their britches the last four years. I\m desparate to see a doctor right now as I am bleeding so heavily, I am going through three adult diapers, not even pads, an hour. I can\t hardly move, don\t have the energy or strength to leave my bed or get to the bathroom by myself, bleeding wakes me up, the cramps are worse than labor, and this has been going on for eight straight days. However, I will have to be unconscious before I go back to a doctor at Scott and white. They don\t listen, they don\t care, you are just another number. And if you don\t fall into one of their common known issues, then you must be a liar and there really is nothing wrong with you." - Kelly

Weatherford Regional Medical Center: "Three times my doctor has requested mri and songrams for me and three time my doctor didn\t get the results. They only got the results after the doctor requested results and I physically went down to their medical records office, got the results and handcarried them to the doctor just to be sure my doc got them.\r\n\r\nI was told by Weatherford regional medical center that even though my doctor made the request for the test, he still had to make another request to get the results.\r\n\r\n" - gem
