The nurse Melissa Hyman called the police and made up the fact a story in which threatened the clinic staff. I have 4 officers arrive at my house with two weapons drawn. I could have died. I implore you, if you have mental health issues to stay away. She did this because during a panic attack I called her a dumbass.

I've been to the ER and for an overnight hospital stay for both my wife and I. The doctors are good, but the real stars are the nurses--their level of caring is evident in everything they do...kudos to Meriter for finding and retaining the nurses!

As I tell everyone new to Madison who's looking for a doctor/healthcare system: I strongly recommend that you do NOT go here. Dealing with overinflated charges and opaque billing from Meriter has been the single worst customer service experience I've ever received. My experience was like Piyush's below. Prior to receiving an outpatient surgery (straightforward, a removal of adenoid tissue), I attempt to find out from multiple people at Meriter what the cost would be. Each told me they would get back to me, and I never heard back. I looked online at various sources and saw that total costs for adenoidectomy ran at most, $5k-$10k. After the surgery, I received a professional services and hospital services bill of ~$2,000, after my insurance paid their portion. Given that that represented the 10% coinsurance I was responsible for, they billed a total of $20,000 (!) for the 1.5 hour procedure (if it even took that long - I fully expect that they took 1/2 that time but billed for the booked OR time). Insane. Afterwards, after spending hours on the phone, nobody could tell me why exactly it cost that much. Multiple labs and tissue samples were included on the bill, none of which anyone could satisfactorily explain to me, and only one or two of which I was told about beforehand. Every item looked inflated past real-world belief ($150 for that hospital paper gown?), such that no single item really popped out. Then, two years later, after reconciling an anesthesia bill, a hospital services bill, and a professional services bill, I find out that I have yet another bill, which I never received, which is now in collections. Turns out they contracted a surgical pathology consult out to another group, which failed to bill me properly. Nobody told me about this bill. Nobody told me I received this service. It's a game of "imagine every possible thing you think they could charge you for, add a zero to the end of what you think it'll cost, then draw twice as many blank lines for them to write in everything you failed to imagine." And my doctor (ENT) was awful as well. Sleazy and rotten, all the way through.

I had my oldest child and my youngest child at Meriter and would do it all again. They offer specializations which do not even exist at St Mary's and UW doesn't deliver babies. There were some very specific circumstances with my youngest and it was a similar situations with my 3 year old, who was born at St Mary's. The experiences were night and day. I left St Mary's traumatized and combative about everything the doctors and nurses said and did. It left me afraid of going to other doctors. Where as Meriter was a generally warm place, with helpful and kind staff 90-95% of the time. Both my 3 yr old and my youngest spent time in the NICU and while St Mary's says they have private rooms and you're welcome to stay with your baby, if you tell them you want to they look at you like you've grown a 2nd head. Not to mention they have no place for you to sleep or shower and not even the basics of some type of food. I understand the baby is the patient but what mother wants to leave her newborn? Meriter at least provide some very simple food items, you couldn't live off of it but it was nice to be able to grab a quick snack while you waited for family to bring food. They had a communal shower which they regularly maintenances and would happily bring you towels if you needed them. They also had pull out couches and in the one room they didn't have a pull out couch (which my baby happened to be in) they made a cot available. The doctors were much more forthcoming with treatment details and you saw them regularly. I can't say enough about the nurses, they work so hard and are almost all amazing people with beautiful personalities. I would not hesitate to go to Meriter again and will NEVER have another baby at St Mary's.

Meriter Hospital, 1/2/16 Over recent years I have had many physical therapist through the Meriter system, as my Physician Plus insurance has total coverage. In so being, I have never had any coinsurance, co-payment, or any additional payments for materials used during these therapies. When I received a Meriter bill for a 6/10/15 P.T. visit, I called the Madison office to question this billing. They had no record of a co-payment nor what the item was being bill for, nor did the Monona therapy office that I attended. Physicians Plus had no real information either, other than it was listed as coinsurance, in which I do not have, so the concession was that it must be a tangible item given to me. My P.T visits were consistent, with the usual tapes, bandages, and/or bio freeze products, so I had know idea what could possibly billable. The previous contact to Meriter back in August 2015 proved to have no merit to its billing practice for a coinsurance in which I thought the Madison staff had taken care of this issue, as I heard nothing further. Then after receiving another bill 12/21/15, I realized that this was not handle by the Meriter billing staffer I had spoken to on the matter. So on 12/28/15 I made the same regiment of calls, getting the same answers, as to no one knowing what this item was that I was being billed for. When call the Monona p.t. office, the new staff there was a bit more helpful than the previous contact, as staff returned my call promptly with an answer. The item she shows in the records was a splint, made of gauze and wax. Oh yes this is a tangible item if you want to call it that, but it is also comparable to the tape that has been used. Also known as supplies. So I called Meriter billing to question this material supply, as a billable tangible item. I was told, that it was of course, and the tape that is being used, is also. She said the tape, is within the bill, to the insurance company. So here it is, materials being billed to the insured, as a coinsurance, without informing the customer that this falls outside of their insurance, and is a poor business practice by Meriter. In addition, the billing department does not have detailed information, as to what is being billed, which falls within this same continuum. Please be advised that the coinsurance payment enclosed, as it is stated in your records, is a reflection of Meriter Hospitals gouging its customers. As my P.T. continues today, it does so outside of the Meriter system. Regards,
