The problem is they stick you with a physician that is a non-service provider and your insurance won’t cover the bill. The patient gets stuck with a huge bill. Be aware.

Excellent care--skilled and caring but the wait to see the doctor who treated me was about six hours. Once I saw the doctor, she was very thorough and treated me promptly. We did have to wait for some more lab work. Discharge papers were very detailed and clear.

Can be backed-up. Excellent for stroke evaluation, but other things have to wait their turn.
