: "Terrible pain in my knee replacement, stitches burst and bleeding. Horrible sprained/broken ankle, and so far I’ve been sitting in the waiting room crying for going on three hours. I don’t think anyone actually cares. Do not come here for emergency care! They will let you die before they get you seen." - Kelly

: "Worst Er I've ever been in. It took them 5.5 hours to have me discharged.
Hospitality was bad I checked in around 2:00 for my chest pain. they took my Vital signs then threw me in the waiting room (main lobby) I waited so long my body cured it self. My chest pain went away by the time doctor decide to see me,he said he can't detect anything if I'm not in pain. Got out around 7:30. Waste of time, I'm surprise no one died in the lobby when I was there. The state got to give these guys a million-dollar raise hopefully they can perform consistency!!!"

: "Advent Care Hospital ER on 75th Street in Overland Park is absolutely horrible! Do not use them!! My son went in this morning, June 10, 2022, at 1:00 am with pain around his abdomen and we told them we think it is appendicitis. They kept triaging everyone ahead of him and he was doubled over in pain in the lobby. We waited 3 hours with consistently given the message that there are “5 people ahead of you” - even when I asked several times for help and other less
In pain patients after we came in were put in front of him.

We left there and went to Menorah Medical Center and they had him triaged within 5 minutes and had pain
Medicine, IV, CAT Scan, and Antibiotics going within 30 minutes.
And he is scheduled to get his appendix out shortly
