Go to St. Francis? Not for a million years.... Listen if you value your life, you will go anyplace but there.
St. Francis boasts"Best Care anywhere". Let me help you readers out with that.
Care is directly related to the insurance you carry. The better the insurance, the better the care. Further, being money oriented, the hospital will bill your insurance weather they help or not. That's right, you can very possibily walk out of the facility with no relief from your problem and no plan for relief. But don't worry, St. Francis will bill your insurance in a timely manor.
Know too, that if you have a complaint, it will automatically fall on deaf ears. I am still trying to figure out why they have a "patient advocate", when the only answer you can get out of her is "I don't know". The rest of the time the answer is "We can't help you", and when you ask who can "I don't know" is the answer of choise.
I say all of this because I have an illness, almost like a cancer. I have begged St. Francis for assistance. It falls on deaf ears. I am right now without treatment and my condition is getting worse every day. I called my PCP, who also works at St. Francis, and he seems to think it isn't important enough to bother. As of the writting of this note I am too sick to leave the house.Reps from St. Francis will tell you that they have rendered treatment, but I also have told them that thanks to the 3 years I spent on antibiotics, thanks to guess who, antibiotics no longer work. Every time I go see them they make it a point of prescribing antibiotics--so no treatment provided.
Yeah- run, don't walk--IN THE OTHER DIRECTION!!!!
