Description of service

I went to the hospital with an ankle sprain. They took my blood pressure ask my how the pain was from a scale from 1-10 I told her it was a 8. Took my temperature. I got called back finally 2 hours later

Review of Service

Well from the before I was waiting for 2 hours in the hospital waiting room. I waited for a doctor for another hour. He came in and asked what was bothering me, I told him he moved it around alittle bit and told me it was only a sprang but here's the thing how do he know he didn't even xray it? So I went home couple days later I got a bill for 4000 dollars that I have to pay my insurance didn't cover it. Whch is dumb.


Be careful what hospitals you go to because some of them don't know nothing or anything what is going on. My ankle could of been broke or something he didn't even take the right procedures.
