    Centrastate Medical Center Stories

    Centrastate Medical Center: "After reading the other reviews, I probably got off easy, but I still think CentraState has a lousy ER. I came in doubled up with gas pains that I could not relieve with over the counter meds. Nothing had moved in three days and my abdomen was gurgling with gas. After the better part of an hour the doctor shows up and sends me for a CAT scan and tells me I am not constipated because he could see no obstruction but he does see a 0.2mm stone (the size of a pin head) in a bladder duct. He insists I must have a sharp pain on my left side, I tell him it my whole abdomen. I can hear the rumbling. He was determined to make my symptoms fit his diagnosis. It was two more days until things were back to normal but he tells me I was not constipated. He writes me a scrip to help pass the alleged stone except I am already on that drug, for other reasons. He never asked what meds I was on or physically examined me. He fed a strong narcotic into my IV a couple of times so I left feeling no pain but he never treated the problem. Fortunately the pain was gone by the next morning, but not through any competence on his part. The nurse was none too pleasant, either. This was no life and death issue but I sure would not want to be there if it was. I am almost certain this is the same doctor I saw a few years ago where I left feeling my problem was not addressed. On another occasion was there with sky high blood pressure. When I later saw my cardiologist she was unhappy with the drug used to bring it down. Stay out of there. If you come in with heart attack symptoms that would require a stent they are not authorized to perform that procedure and will have to transport you elsewhere so don't even have the ambulance take you there. It happened to my wife. The whole hospital was recently down graded so insurance companies will actually pay less if you go there. The place may look slick and modern but it is strictly bush league. Except for cardiology, most specialties are rated low. " - Jeffrey
