Description of service

Last year I went into the emergency room in pain caused by gal stones. I was told that my gal bladder would have to be removed, which at the time seemed like a blessing being I was in pain. I had my gal bladder removed that same afternoon and was released from the hospital that evening. I paid a little over 12,000 just for that one day having my gal bladder removed and 8,000 of that went to the surgeon.

Review of Service

While I was in the hospital I recevied wonderful care. They made sure I was in as little pain as possible, and my doctor kept coming in through out the morning checking me and making sure everything was going as it was suppose to. I was really impress by how nice everyone was, and I was there on a weekend and they were rather busy. But when they came in my room they made me feel like I was their only patient.


I suggest looking around for a hospital with good ratings if you are expecting to have any large surgry done. You only want the best people working on you. I also recommend having a bank account set up with emergency funds if you can afford to put money aside. That will really help you if you find yourself ill or hurt.
