Went in for upper abdominal pain with vomiting. Sat in waiting room for over 2 hours vomiting in a grocery bag . There weren't very many other people waiting to be seen and no apparent reason for the wait. The triage nurse asked me if I was allergic to any medications and then asked r how to spell Penicillin! She also entered my weight as 168 lbs. when my weight is actually 98 lbs.. Two hour later the Dr. came in and told me to go to my family practitioner to get a referral for a HIDA scan (gall bladder) and come back!!! Call me crazy! Why on Earth would they send me to my Dr. just do I could come back when I was already there!!!!!

When I fell, I went to the ER as I am 68 years old! The nurse who put in my IV didn't know how to do it, and finally had to call soeone else. When the doctor appeared, all he could say was, "Where' the emergency?" He said this a few times and then left the room. On leaving the ER I observed him chatting with some of the staff, and I was not escorted to a waiting vehicle, but left to fend for myself at night! I will NEVER go to St. Joe's again!

I went to the ER, had my vitals taken, then wasted away in the waiting room for over 3 hours. I got up to leave (they lock you in the waiting room, FYI) and as I told a nurse I was leaving, a doctor stopped me, asked what was going on with my stomach pains. He went to the computer, googled me a referral. Guess how much that "help" cost? $125 copay, $ 475 billed to my insurance company. Health care in America. Gotta love it.

Same as prior comment. Nurse/tech did not know how to take difficult blood draw. She said she "thought" she could do it. Surgery nurses were the best. But no explanation or treatment was given by physician or other medical personnel (even when asked) for severe reaction after regaining consciousness in recovery. I treated myself with my own medications after I got home but pain from this reaction lasted two days. Inconsistent levels of competence and little ability to adapt to more complex medical needs of some patients. More respect for patient understanding of and input into own medical care would bring the atmosphere up to 2013 standards of patient/physician/staff communication.

Went in for a carotid artery surgery. took my own meds because I can't take the generics. I needed to get back on my Coumadin and Beta Pace as soon as possible.Nurse gave me hell because I brought books and she said she would have to search my bag. They listed me as diabetic (NOT)and brought me a 2200 calorie breakfast with sausage. I'm allergic to nutrasweet and they put a packet on my breakfast tray for sweetner. They took forever to restart my meds because they had sent them to pharmacy. Finally got the meds moving when I went into a-fib. Then they brought generics and not enough Coumadin so I had to stay overnight because my protime was too low. Following day protime was still low and the cardiac doctor's nurse prac. tried to make me stay another day after two doctors had released me, so I released myself because I do home monitoring and know what I need to do.They made me sign a form that I went "against advice of my doctor." I was classified as a "difficult patient."
