I’ve been to this ER once before for a different medical emergency and the doctor and staff were so kind and helpful when it came to assisting me. I decided to go today because my regular doctor was unable to see me and I had a been struggling for 3 days with a severe sore throat and double ear aches. Upon my arrival the nurse that was assisting me was very rude and did not seem like she wanted to deal with me. I was the only person in the waiting room at the time. I explain to her what was going on and because of how severe my throat was hurting it was hard for me to talk and she complained every single time that I spoke that she was unable to hear me and kept huffing and puffing when I had to repeat myself. When she went to place the finger clamp on my finger to check my pulse/heartbeat, she complained that my nails were too long and rolled her eyes. I know I’m not the first person who has ever walked into a hospital with long acrylic nails. She proceeded to tape a small gadget around my finger. When the doctor came in she seemed very annoyed and sped through the process of checking me over. When I asked her to check my ears she looked very quickly and said that my ears were perfectly fine. Every time I have gone to the doctor or ER they always make a comment about my ears because they have severe scarring from previous tube work I had when I was younger and tend to give me issues. When she looked in my mouth she said it does look like I have a sore throat and they would do testing for strep. The nurse came back in and proceeded to do the test and then left. After my results came back negative the doctor left the room and the nurse came back in. She handed me paperwork of my release and emphasized that I need to call my primary doctor next time, hinting that I should not come back to them. I held out my hand so she could take off the tape monitor she wrapped around my finger and she looked me up and down and said that I need to do it myself since my nails are so long. I thought that was very rude as the tape was around my finger and not my nail. As I stated previously I’m sure there are millions of individuals who come in to the doctor or ER with acrylic nails. I came here to get answers on why I was feeling so terrible and I honestly just left embarrassed because of how the doctor and nurse treated me. Definitely will not be back. The doctor was Dr. Chan
I brought my elderly father here after a late night fall and the staff from the front check in area to the nurses and doctors were incredibly kind, compassionate, and helpful. They explained everything they were doing clearly, examined and treated him respectfully, and didn’t rush us out until he was more alert and more back to himself. I appreciate their treatment, their kindness, and the caring attention they gave both my dad and myself during what was a scary situation.
The staff at HCA took excellent care of my 12 year old daughter today when she was feeling very sick. We didn’t even have to sit down in the waiting room, they took her right in and got her started with treatment. I recommend anyone looking for a fast and easy ER to come! Thank you guys!
8/17/2022 I was involved in a car accident around 2:00pm hit from behind. My head did jerk forward than backwards, I believe it hit on steering wheel ,it all happened so fast. I have Neurological Health Issues have Rods and Screws in neck. All the Hosptial was full I refused to be taken to Manatee Hosptial. I believe going there would of been better. So the Ambulance took me there gave them a report about my blood pressure 198/60 and what happened. I arrived Dr Blair very nice professional, however the nurse wasn’t. Sometimes I have to get my sister to help explain my health issues. Due to my speech problems, the nurse took my information, left came back about one hour for me to Register. Remind you I am dizzy, headache, neck collar on, just been in car accident. This was before they done CT so they had no idea if I was hurt or not. I had to go restroom I had no assistance at all, thank God I could walk on my own and were close by rest room. The Nurse with Initial MZ for almost 4 hours that I was there not one time come and check on me, ask about pain or nothing. The CT Lady was very nice professional her I think her name was Ruth or Robin can’t remember. I was discharged when I arrived home my daughter went on My Health Account. The report has lies on it about my vitals, they didn’t take my vitals, or weight, and said I brought myself in. When the ambulance did other wrong information, I probably would of receive better treatment at Manatee Hospital…… I will follow up with my own Doctors… So much more I just don’t want to put.

The staff here are amazing and provided excellent service! However, I would not recommend going here if you can help it. They charged me $12,000 just to walk into this place (I later found out) which did not include the thousands of dollars for the other services and fees. My insurance is covering some but I owe thousands for no reason now because I thought I might have a medical situation that local urgent care facilities did not have the equipment to check.
