The Emergency department at Presbyterian hospital in Huntersville NC is a joke. I went there the other day and found this hospital to be for the birds. Their customer service is worse then Wal-Mart – they suck. They kept me waiting for almost 6 hours for something that should have taken no more than 1. $4K later, I was released with the wrong diagnosis and with prescriptions I ended up not needing.
Can you believe this? They gave me horrible customer service, made me wait over 6 hours for the wrong diagnosis and then wanted to charge me $4,000 for this. They shouldn’t be charging me anything if they can’t make a correct diagnosis. Isn’t that illegal to charge me for making a wrong diagnosis? That just isn’t right at all.
It’s completely ludicrous and crazy. When I challenged the diagnosis that the ER doctor made (after consulting my own personal doctor), I was sent a “heart felt” letter from Presbyterian where they tried to talk over my head using complex medical terminology – basically telling me I don’t know what I’m talking about. Along with it they sent a copy of the bill stating that it was overdue – what nice folks they have at Presbyterian Hospital.
Now I’m forced to pay or end up with collections coming after me because I can’t afford a lawyer to pursue this crap further. If I had good insurance I wouldn’t owe anything or maybe a $100 or so. But because I lost my job last year I cannot afford health insurance and I am screwed – but I will not pay Presbyterian Hospital a dime. They can kiss my big, fat, black ass.
I got a wrong diagnosis from their dipshit ER doctor whom couldn’t tell my front from my backside – what a dumbass. I wonder how he ever graduated from or even got into medical school. Must be the standards have really been lowered. I wonder, does anyone know of a good attorney that would be interested in taking my case against Presbyterian Hospital?
Is there an attorney out there that wants to sue Presbyterian for big bucks for making a wrong diagnosis in my case? Will they do it on a contingency basis as I don’t have the money to pay them. Regardless you can bet I will not be returning to Presbyterian hospital ever again. Safe to say CMC will be the only hospital I or any of my family will ever go to here in the Charlotte area – emergency or not.
Do not go to Presbyterian Hospital. Their doctors are not good and they will give you a wrong diagnosis and then charge you way more than CMC ever would (2 to 4 times more from what I have seen)!
