I came in with high bp, pounding heart, racing pulse, chest pain, and numbness in my hands and face. Because I have a uterus, and am therefore hysterical, the Doctor told me had anxiety. He offered me atavan, and sent me home. After that (another 3 visits at least) I was immediately dismissed as "anxious" every time I came and treated very poorly. Thank goodness my Family Physician came back - as I'd hate to think what would have eventually happened to me. There was a time I would have insisted everyone in my family to the Rockyview ER. Now, I hope they never do.
I came in with extreme pain in my abdomen and the er wouldn't give me any painkillers saying I had muscle pain and sent me home. 6 hours later I was jaundice and in so much pain I was vomiting and needed an ambulance to get back to the hospital. It turned out I had over 100 gallstones and they caused me to have pancreatitis. I almost died that night. The head er dr came and asked me not to sue them for negligence. Ultimately the surgeon and unit staff were wonderful but I will never go back to that er!
I love this hospital. They saved my grandmother's life. She was having heart problems. They were amazing and attentive. She got a pacemaker put in. They even let her dog come for a visit. And they continue to monitor her 5 years later. And recently my daughter's twins were transferred there to the NICU. Wonderful staff there! Wonderful hospital!!
Was left in chronic pain after a surgery performed by Dr. Frank Brandschwei. Now everytime Ive gone back looking for the help I. Treating like a junkie looking for a fix and am told the surgery was a success. No successful surgery leaves a person in worse pain then before. Last visit Dr. Welsh offered me some antidepressants and made a joke about suicidal thoughts and said he will see about getting me into a pain specialist but it could take a long time.
The staff were polite, professional, and the service was great. The nurses were evidently well trained and the operating surgeons were available and interested in my well being and helped ease my concerns before going into the OR. My recovery was quick and the care I had was excellent all around. I got to go home a few days after thanks to the attentiveness in keeping me well maintained. :)
MANY TIMES DOCTORS ARE RATHER TO PRESCRIBE HEAVY PAIN KILLERS LIKE VALIUM/IBUPROFEN/TYLENOL THEN DO THEIR JOB AND RESEARCH WHERE THE PAIN IS COMING FROM! Not everyone wants quick temporary solution- getting pumped with pain killers! Some of us want intelligent approach with providing and digging in deeper to find what actually is causing excruciated pain! Doctors in Rocky View General Hispital in Calagry are acting and becoming drug dealers/provides, versus healers and intelligent human beings that are willing to walk the mile and do the necessary research to discover true cause of the pain! It's a shame, true shame! And it is scary, where should we turn now when illness comes? Is this where are 45% tax income goes?!!! Shame! Say no to drugs and easy way out! Say yes to intelligent approach!
