The nurses in the ER aren't nice

Dr. Mell is a great doctor, but he should work somewhere besides Provena. The staff there are mean and don't help at all. Dr. Mell admitted my mom, it took the nurses FOREVER to get her upstairs. He kept asking them, in front of my sister and I, to hurry up, but they took their time. The doctor in the hospital was o.k. too, but the nurses on the floor were just as lazy as downstairs.

BEST ER DOC EVER

Dr. Mell saved my life. I had a tumor that all of my other doctors thought was just regular low back pain. Even my chiropractor missed what was really wrong - a tumor was pushing on my kidney. Dr. Mell was the only doctor who listened to me, when I told him it felt funny when I peed, he did tests and found the tumor. He saved my life.
