Nothing but callus mistakes and trauma

I was treated like crap, yelled at and traumatized overmedicated and left with avoidable permanent damage. I would grt up and leave this snaje pot if I wete dying. Little Strong is even worse. bigger buildings dont mean good care. Higland proves that.

Full Review Rating Breakdown

They truly are uncaring and dangerous

This facility was callus, disruptive and permanently harmful. I was misdiagnosed, over medicated, moved constantly, given doom and gloom, sent home with grave damage and absolutely no follow up. I may never recover from their care. They are draconian and archaic. unskilled, damaging, no compassion, no empathy, no real skill. big bill though.

Worst care to the point of being scary.

I actually was released in critical condition. i said no to unnecessary surgery on advise of my pulmonologist and was punished for it, locked in my room with no food drink or meds, yelled at and then released. i was charged for six surgeons I did not use. My questions were not answered and I went to another hospital barely conscious.

Muscular and repository infection

Please get qualified doctors. I walked in front door to be seen and no one listened. The PA and nurse there were mean, rude and condescending. They did not help me. I told them the medicine I was given not working. I have muscular infection and causing other issues. They checked vitals and to work out with doctor. They told me if I did not leave, they would get the police to escort me out. Sick and twisted employees. Not fit for front walk in emergency issues. No one is over seeing this lower level staff. There were no actual doctors to speak with. They said we are the doctors and if I don't leave they will get the police to escort me out. I called the police station when I got home. They told me to call the hospital supervisor. I also called the emergency insurance nurse from my insurance company. The woman wanted me to go to different hospital. I have trouble breathing causing fever chills. My car broke down and I don't have transportation. If anyone does read this please do not go here for this kind of health problem. I can't even stand up to cook food. The women l saw were beyond ignorant. In proper training emergency health issues.
