Carney Hospital: "I had the worst experience ???? and just left to go to Milton hospital which is close. I walked in and no one was at the desk it was like a ghost town! After waiting 9 minutes a guy comes in and asks what I needed. This should have been a sign of the service I would get. The nurses I encountered were all personable,efficient and professional but the doctor was the definition of unprofessional and felt the need to put the nurse in her place for sport because she was trying to deescalate a tense situation. I left in pain to go to another hospital for antibiotics
