Dr. Curtis D Armstrong has the following 1 specialty
- Emergency Medicine
An emergency physician is a doctor who is an expert in handling conditions of an urgent and extremely dangerous nature. These specialists work in the emergency room (ER) departments of hospitals where they oversee cases involving cardiac distress, trauma, fractures, lacerations and other acute conditions.
Emergency physicians are specially trained to make urgent life-saving decisions to treat patients during an emergency medical crisis. These doctors diagnose and stabilize patients before they are either well enough to be discharged, or transferred to the appropriate department for long-term care.

The woman who identified herself as a nurse is a disgrace. How DARE she say that the people who gave Armstrong a bad review were drug seekers. I did not, nor have I ever, done a drug in my life. I went to the ER at Grand Strand (when he was still there, he has since left) in a terrible state. As one reviewer said, without even examining the patient, or looking at records, he accused me of exactly the same thing...drug seeking etc. His first question, "How many ERs have you visited today in your search for drugs?" I am 70 years old. He is disrespectful, crazy with the power of being a doctor, and a point to be made.... In his former life he was a policeman. Perhaps they should have given him a few more psychologicals...he needs them! I put my clothes on, got up to leave and he screamed at me across the ER, "Oh, you're better now. I thought you were Soooo sick." I just yelled back, "I am sick, sick of you." and then I went directly to administration to report him. Yes, I was still sick. I went to another hospital. I called my son to pick me up and was crying and told him what happened. Forget litigious. My son, a strapping young man and protective of his mother, was running into the hallway to get me and confront Armstrong. I had to beg him not to confront him as I didn't want my son to be harmed. I call this man STRONGARM, not Armstrong. When I go to the ER I ask who the doctor is. Last time I said to the nurse, "If Armstrong is my doctor I do NOT wish to see him." The male nurse said to me, "Oh he left and I certainly don't miss him." This man should lose his license. I do not trust him and, in the wake of all the shootings due to crazy people, I would watch this one. He's an angry loose cannon. Anyone who employs him is not in their right mind either. If he should wind up in a suit, for any reason, I would be the first one to appear in court to testify as to his character, or lack of it. I think of what he did every time I see his name. I have yet to forget, will never forget and if I were in an accident on the street and saw his face looming above me I would refuse his help and swear that I had already died and gone to h^^l...as should he!!!
My 95 year old father went to the ER today and was treated (very rudely) by Curtis Armstrong. It is beyond me why such a reputable hospital would employ such a rude, insensitive Dr. When we mentioned that we had gone to Urgent Care he even remarked that he wouldn't take his dog there. Most professional Drs. would not "bad mouth" our doctors. When we asked for a scan of my father's VERY swollen stomach to rule out bleeding, his reply was "So what if he has blood in his stomach, you can't do anything about it!" If you go to Grand Strand be sure to ask who will be treating you and choose someone other than Curtis Armstrong!!
My wife has had some serious health problems over the past year. She may have suffered a stroke a few weeks ago. She woke up this morning barely able to walk, crying in pain. She is only 32. Her neurologist told her to go to the Grand Strand ER for an MRI. Dr Armstrong yelled at her and called her a liar. He told her to see a psychiatrist, not an ER because nothing is wrong with her and she is just looking for drugs. He said to stop wasting his time, because there were people there with real problems. He made these accusations without even examining her or looking through her medical history. He is the most uncompassionate doctor I have ever heard of.
