The good doctor was on call the early hours of a Sunday morning and was upset about being needed, so she took it out on me in the emergency room at Mercy on the Lakes facility. Three different staff members gave me different accounts of what the good doctor had planned for me regarding being admitted and treated. When I asked HER about the different stories, the good doctor totally fruited out, first by telling me I was lucky she even responded to the call out and I had to be stupid to question her plan of action. The following night around 6 p.m. I was told by a nurse that according to lab results and by talking to the good doctor I was going to need blood . At around 11 p.m the finally graced me and the hospital staff with the "official" orders to proceed. Keep in mind this was after I'd been awake for over 36 hours and hadn't had anything but cold beef broth and ice water for almost 48 hours. Try sleeping in a hospital. The day of my surgery the good doctor didn't as munch as ask the nurses about my condition, let alone tell anyone at the lakes hospital she wouldn't be able to make it to the downtown hospital to do the surgery, she handed it off to someone else...Still haven't been contacted by the good doctor or her office.....Just too bad I can't give her less than one star.. She's about as poor an excuse for a professional as they come.STAY AWAY FROM THIS ONE!!!!!!
