I went to another ER prior to coming here. I had more questions answers within 3 minutes of being in the ER than I did in 3 at the other one! I'm very happy with my experience here! Everyone has been very informative!

I transported my fiance to summerville medical center ER on 2/14/17 due to sharp, sudden onset of a headache that he rated as 10/10 pain. His pupils were constricted and speech was slurred. Blood pressure was 170/100. When we arrived, he couldn't walk and I had to transfer him to a wheelchair and push him inside. I explained to the emergency room staff what was going on and they insisted on checking him in before allowing a doctor to assess him. I was understanding of this. However, after the initial assessment, they told us to sit in the waiting room to see the triage nurse. After a few minutes, I stopped a staff member and asked to see the triage nurse. They consulted the triage nurse and assured me that my fiance would be seen next. Another couple of minutes passed and the triage nurse called a different patient to the room. I am a medical professional and knew his symptoms were those of a stroke, so I spoke up. I stopped the triage nurse, explained that he needed to be seen by a doctor right away. I was told we needed to wait our turn. I went on to argue that he could be having a brain bleed and needed a neurological assessment, but my complaints fell on deaf ears. We left summerville and went to Trident ER. He was seen immediately there, given the appropriate testing and was checked in over night. He's been diagnosed as having had a TIA, or "mini stroke". I am sure that emergency care depends largely on the staff on duty when you arrive, but summerville seriously needs to provide better training to their staff. A stroke certified emergency department should have recognized his symptoms and had him immediately taken to the back to see a doctor. I have not been able to recommend summerville medical center to my patients since this event, nor would I feel confident seeking care there for myself or my loved ones.

I have read other reviews and can understand them. When my mom was in Summerville Medical, the care she received was a great deal different than the care I received August 2016. I am not sure what happened, but Summerville Medical has improved 100%! I was not happy about going to Summerville Medical because of prior knowledge. They have improved!!!

I was not pleased as to how I was treated this evening at Summerville Medical. I was treated like was a dope fiend, making up something to get drugs! I went in because I've been in pain, with an injury that occurred a little while ago. I came to Summerville to get a second opinion for my hand. The ER PA treated me so rudely! I asked for a note for work BECAUSE I WORK WITH BOTH MY HANDS and was told I could return to work because my injury wasn't "new." I wasn't asked what I did for a living and basically, was tossed out with pills and another splint. Everyone, but that PA was very helpful, but I couldn't believe how I was treated, so thank you for my referral to the REAL specialists that can look at my injury, but this is my last time going to Summerville Medical for anything. I'd rather drive to East Cooper! That's what I get for dealing with Trident!!!

I was in an auto accident and taken by ambulance to the Summerville Medical Center. I was treated with the greatest care by the emergency room staff. They were friendly, capable and professional. I was eventually admitted to the hospital for 24 hour observation and the nurses and doctors there also provided outstanding care. I am proud to have such a medical facility in my neighborhood.
Tips & Advices
This depends on the facility. Patients should call to find out if they'll need a referral from their physician prior to making an appointment.
Aside from hyperbaric oxygen treatment, most wound care centers offer:
  • Debridement: The removal of dead skin and tissue surrounding the wound. This can be done surgically, using a whirlpool bath, syringes, enzymes that dissolve the tissue, or wet dressings that dry on the wound and absorb the dead tissue.
  • Dressing: Wrapping the wound in a protective film, gauze, gel, or foam.
  • Compression stockings: Tight-fitted fabric sheaths that encourage blood flow.
  • Artificial skin: A covering that is applied to the wound for several days as it heals.
  • Ultrasound: The use of sound waves to promote healing.
  • Growth factor therapy: The use of materials naturally produced by the body to encourage quick cell growth.
  • Negative pressure therapy: Creating a vacuum around a wound to encourage faster blood flow to the area.
Depending on where the treatment is administered, hyperbaric oxygen treatment  can cost $100- $1,000. After insurance is applied, patients may have a copay of $10 -$50 or a coinsurance fee of 10 percent to 50 percent.
Most wounds should heal within two to six weeks. An individual should seek chronic wound treatment if a wound has not begun to heal after two weeks or is not completely healed after six.
Most health insurance plans cover wound care. Patients should check with the clinic and their health insurance provider before seeking treatment to be sure.
