University Of Iowa Hospital & Clinics Stories

Aug 12, 2022, 8:22 PM
University Of Iowa Hospital & Clinics: "Very disappointed, in fact I was so mad irrational thoughts were considered. These people gave me a little bit of pain medicine that worked for about 2 hours. I told them it was not working!! They said it is a controlled substance so I cant have anymore. Sent me home with about 4 or 5 days worth of medicine. Told me it is 3 weeks worth. Left me helpless and even though I called many times They did nothing for me. I do not forgive them and I never will!!! " - Robert
