    United Hospital Center: "This hospital is absolute trash. My father has been going to this hospital for at least 5 years to see "specialists" for certain ailments. Recently he had been having sever side pain. He had not one, not two, but THREE different appointments and tests run on him for his kidney. The doctors said "You have kidney stones" they gave him 2 medications and sent him home. Still in sever pain, dry heaving, couldn't eat/drink or even comfortably lay down. Still in pain he ends up going back with another appointment with a different doctor who then tells him, "You had a blockage in your kidney, it is now dead and full of fluid" ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!! Most of the doctors here do not take their time with their paitents, nor do the simply even care. Beware of what doctor you trust! If you do end up having to choose this Hospital, please for your sake do not hesitate to do your own research (to compare) to what the doctor has told you. Get a second opinion A.S.A.P. Make them take their time on/ with you. Above all it's YOUR BODY, you know it better than anyone. If you think they're wrong tell them. It's time to stop letting doctors that don't care go on "treating" our loved ones!" - Jessica

    Weirton Medical Center: "I went to the emergency room last night in extreme pain. I cannot say enough good things about the staff. They saw my cancer history and immediately did all the scans to make sure it had not come back. Dr. Fuscardo was amazing and made sure I was comfortable and well informed." - Michelle
