Don't go to the ER if it's a life or death situation.. 12/5/2005

I agree with the above person, no matter how full or empty it is in the ER at Trumbull you are almost always guaranteed atleast an hour wait. Then once they take you back to a room you're guaranteed probably atleast another hour wait before an actual doctor comes to see you. I've had bad experiences with the ER there on a few occasions. One time I went with my friend and the doctor completely violated her privacy by practically announcing to everyone within hearing range that she was pregnant (she did not know until then). On another occasion I went with my boyfriend, the nurse came in and asked him questions. The doctor told him to open his mouth and say "Ah" and then the doctor left and came back with a prescription for Tylenol 3, which he should've been given an antibiotic with the symptoms he had told the doctor. He was also misdiagnosed. The doctor told him he just had a sore throat and he really had mono! After that little amount of time, I'd say at most the doctor seen him for literally 2 minutes, he sent my boyfriend a bill for $475. Riiiiight. more
