I sat in the ER here for over 6 hours without being seen. I'm a diabetic and was unable to eat or drink anything. I came in dehydrated and unable to urinate my kidneys were literally shutting down. I was in so much pain and I kept asking about when they were going to see me but was told they were backed up, for 6 straight hours . I don't recommend going there to anyone I would rather take my chances and go to ECMC. Never again would I ever go to St. Joseph

removal of a melanoma on my back......did a great job, no pain, looks good. the thing that i was not happy about was i went back after 2 weeks for the stitches to be remove and no had called me with the pathology report. i asked the nurse to have the Doc call me and it took a 3 to 5 days before i got a call. She called me and was very sweet and friendly, she apologized and let me know the results.
Tips & Advices
Many hospitals have their own websites that include information about services offered and how to contact personnel. But you can also search online, in the phone book, and through health and medical-focused review websites.
Medical service prices vary according to the hospital, the type of procedure, and many regulations. The price that a patient actually pays will depend on their insurance coverage policies. If they do not have health insurance, patients may establish payment plans with the health care provider directly.
Most Americans older than 65 are insured under the Medicare program for emergency hospital visits and basic medical care. Whether you are about to turn 65 or already have, you should familiarize yourself with the Medicare program and the benefits it provides. Medicare can work in conjunction with a workplace or other private health plan. Seniors should also take the time to establish legal documents concerning future medical care and end-of-life procedures. These include a living will, advance medical directive, and related documents.
Visitation rules vary by hospital, but in general, any biological or legal family member of a patient is allowed to visit them at an appropriate time and at the patient’s discretion. Friends are typically  allowed to visit at the patient’s and their caregiver’s discretion. A patient may also designate a support person to make decisions on their behalf regarding visitation.
Ambulances are driven and staffed by medical professionals who will transport patients to the closest hospital that can provide the specific services needed. Some hospitals specialize in certain types of emergency care - facilities that specialize in trauma, heart attacks, stroke victims, and children are a few common examples. The patient being transported has the right to request a particular hospital, but the ambulance personnel may refuse this request if they have reason to believe treatment is required as soon as possible. Paramedics may require you to sign a waiver before transporting you to a hospital that you request.
