    Waukesha Memorial Hospital: "worst staff . would never recommend." - bob

    : "Don't choose an ER based on wait times. Froedtert has experts on call 24/7. If you go to another ER on a weekend, you might wait two days to be seen by a specialist. At Froedtert, you'll see a neurologist, liver specialist, or heart surgeon right away if you need one. When my husband had a life-threatening brain infection, St. Mary's talked to their neurologist by phone and told us he had early dementia. " - Muriel

    Mercy Hlth Sys Corp: "The overbooking of patients is ridiculous! When you can only make a appointment a week and a half out and you come and sit in the waiting room for 45 minutes to a hour something is wrong! Or if you need to be seen for non serious or no emergency they push you into going to urgent care because your primary physician is not available for three days! This is not isolated and very much real! So the survey's are bogus just like JD power is to the Auto Industry! All about the Money and Billboards!" - Richard
