    Via Christi Hospital Wichita St Teresa Inc: "DO NOT GO HERE. ESPECIALLY LATE AT NIGHT! There is a Dr there that is absolutely incompetent. My wife almost died there, and I went recently with an issue that had my pain at a 10 and it took 4 hours for the Dr to get to me. Nurses said he was suturing a childs finger. WHAT? 4 HOURS!!! When he finally came in he ordered pain meds in about 2 minutes. Why couldn't he do that before and then finish the suturing. Why did it take 4 hours to suture a finger, sounds like it needed major surgery. My wife went and was treated for pain, and then released. Went back to ER, St. Francis this time and had to have emergency surgery or she was going to die. Same DR. NEVER GO HERE IF YOU HAVE A LIFE TREATENING ISSUE OR YOU WILL DIE WAITING. OR FROM MALPRACTICE!!!! SKIP THIS HOSPITAL AND GO TO ST. FRANCIS IF YOU HAVE THE TIME." - Joseph

    University Of Kansas Hospital: "Been waiting for over 2 hrs with a blown out L1 vertrebre and it is considered not critical enough. So people who come in after are seen first. Oh just because can't walk or even sit with extreme pain is not a reason to be urgently seem." - None

    Coffeyville Regional Medical Center: "I went to see Allison Littleford NP, she chastised me for not seeing her for a year and one half. I told her l needed pain relief for fibromyalgia, and osteoarthritis. I told her my military card had expired. She still called Tricare to order my prescriptions. She never ordered any pain relief mess. I am suffering from depression, and after my appointment.I cried. she was cold, and indifferent. In the past she was always friendly, l did not get anything to help my pain. Never again." - Shanan

    Salina Regional Health Center: "2021 I had history of having 2 strokes. I went in stating that I had had a stroke and needed TPA treatment and they would not find the stroke on CT only on a MRI. My previous strokes were located in my Pons. I had explained that these strokes present differently than the most common ones. I was able to move my arms and legs and speak without any impairment. They delayed treatment and refused to give TPA and said they were calling in the MRI tech but it would be 4 hours until she would arrive. I could not afford waiting so I said to nurse please remove my IV and I was leaving. I drove to Topeka Stormont Vail Trauma Center and I had 15 mins left of my 4 hour window. They quickly did a MRI and CT and saw that I had another stroke and gave me the TPA treatment. I was able to recover from that stroke due to the fast acting knowledgable doctors there. Nothing good to say about the unprofessional, unknowledgable, incompetent doctors at Salina Regional Hospital." - Sheri

    : "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
