    Dominican Hospital: "I was here last week saw an incompetent physicians assistant who told me I have a pimple on my back. Well I have MRSA and he not only sent me home with no antibiotics he told me “ maybe next time you’ll think about not relapsing.
    Ive been working in the Medical field for 22 years and have never seen such negligent and incompetent work. I heard Dominican medical treatment was less that standard but this was straight negligence and criminal.
    I’m now sitting back in waiting room with a temp, blurred vision and painful lesion on my back, face and neck. All because the P.A. I saw did not want to prescribe antibiotics.
    I hope I’m not sepesis. Next stop news paper.
    This is absurded. "
