There under emergency conditions, waited 4 hours, never saw a doctor, left to go to another Urgent Care Facility. Called my physician's office and took the first appointment available for the next morning.
Understand they are under new management now. However, will never go back there.

Our visit occurred early July 2012, before Univ. of Md. personnel started staffing the emergency room. Hopefully service is much improved since our July 2012 experience. In our visit, arrival was at 6 a.m., no triage or other check by medical staff was done until after 8 a.m. because the only doctor that was on hand at that time was tending a prior arrival in the emergency room during that 2 hours. Patient was experiencing unexplained chest pain and weak or fainting sensations. While we waited, the ER receptionist staff advised against driving the patient to the Howard County Hospital in Columbia in hopes of faster attention to what at the time we thought was an emergency.

Had to go here because Howard Co. was closed to ER patients. We had a very bad experience and would never recommend them. I sent a letter addressing my issues and received a phone call apologizing which was considerate.
