Community Medical Center: "About 5 hour wait for very ill 86 year old husband sitting in ER waiting room with15-20 other sick patients. Immediately taken when I asked for person in charge and a complaint form. To shut me up!!!! This is our 3rd bad experience at this ER. 3rd out of 3 visits. It was 4 hours later when he was finally admitted. I have had experience with other emergency rooms and have never seen anything like the inefficiency at this one. It is appalling!" - Gail
