I have been hospitalized lately for my health got badly, gets a lot test a blood draw at least 20 tube, but no treatment, tell go home see regular doctor for my short of breath and all problems. Nurse really rough, not happy when you call them for something. Left me on the room by myself over hours no nurse ask me I’m ok or not, but insurance bill come right away when you get in the room. Doctor rush see them 2 less than 10 minutes, but she stay in the door to talk, not even close to me when tell her my eye have pain, she take a look from the door and I’m in bed, your eye look fine, she said.
Something wrong here, why go to ER? For treatment not to come say hi and paid bill just conversation. What wrong this day for all Doctors and Nurse.
