    : "I will NEVER willingly go to a Corpus Christi hospital or ER.

    ATROCIOUS! I waited for 10 hours.and finally took an AMA and just drove to MD Anderson in Houston.

    This happened multiple times to me, and also these are the same clowns that missed a pulmonary embolism and were going to send me into a procedure the next day.

    NO F***ING WAY WOULD I LET ANYONE I CARE ABOUT GO TO SPOHN!"

    Memorial Hermann Texas Medical Center: "Wait time outrageous. It is now 6:00 pm and we have been here since 10:00 am. We have not been seen by medical staff. If you have an emergency, I suggest going to a facility that is really concerned about your urgent needs. " - Phae

    Southwest General Hospital: "So dirty from the moment you walk in whole first floor!’ Some nurses and assistants didn’t want to wear masks got upset I asked them to while they sniffled grossly so much. They want me to provide urine it was discussing!! That’s right they to to clean well. And ppl sleeping all over the floor their nasty floors!!!! They had to clean a chair for me to sit all night. Provided me no service. I was there from 1:00am-9:45am and are charging $5000 for those hours only. I called Director Patsy Escobar, who should listen as she has her degree for her position, she was so rude and said they have a right to obtain what they want. NEVER NEVER go there! " - Yvonne
