I went in to the e.r. for severe stomach pain on the suggestion of a doctor that worked at this hospital. After ruling out the most basic causes of my pain in was told to go home. I then sought out another doctor and asked them what could be done for the severe amounts of pain I was in. I was told the medicine had already been put in my I.v. yet nothing everchaged as far as the pain in my stomach and abdomen. So I asked for more of whatever I had been givien hoping that might make a difference but was told no. So in the end I was disharged with out ever having any of my problems addressed and most importantly, with all the pain and discofort that i have shown up with still, in full effect. So in a nut shell, they made me leave without fixing any of my problems. So if your the type of person that likes to have your problems solved by your doctor, this is not the place to go. Speciffically doctor weggman. And I really wish I had the name of the e.r. doctor that was so unhelpful but I will update this post with that info asap

The independent doctors there are great, but the hospital services sucks. I was on a payment plan for a hospital bill that I had received 2 months prior. While paying on this bill, it was sent to a collections agency, who then sent it to a lawyer. I was told by EJ, as long as I was paying on the bill, it would not be sent to a collections agency. I was paying $500 every 2 weeks, but still ended up having to pay the lawyers fees, even though I was still paying directly to EJ. Then when I contacted the hospital, they acted like they knew nothing about the collection agancy. I would still use the services of the independent doctors, but I will never do a surgery there again...they were completely unprofessional.

I had surgery here and it was a big nightmare. The nurse couldn't get the IV started because I have small veins that seem to float and collapse. Of course I explained that during my Pre-op interview and when I got to the hospital. I wound up in the operating room with five doctors and a nurse gathered around me trying to find a vein, but when they thought they were in hit an artery. Then I had to have a central line put in and it was the worst experience in surgery I have ever had and I am still upset about it.

I brought my wife to the ER with a medical emergency, and we were treated in such a negligent and uncaring manner that can still neither make heads nor tails of the event. Without knowing what was wrong with her, (besides the violent vomiting) and neither speaking to, or touching her in any way, we were pushed aside and out into the hall. She was so sick that we were being asked by every passerby in the hall if they could get help for us. I finally ended up calling 911 just to have someone look at her, asses her, treat her, anything.... Nothing came of that either thanks to East Jefferson Fire Rescue Paramedics. It was our misfortune to already have been within the walls of this "hospital". When someone finally did come for us, it was to tell me that they had called the police because of the location of my vehicle. Way to go "medical professionals"! Such a sad and disheartening experience in a place that i have lived for 15 years.

I want to Sincerely Thank EJ for agreeing to take my insurance payments for 3wks.of diagnostic invasive testing, then when I'm told I need heart surgery, they refuse it!!! Here's the kicker, the Surgeon graciously agreed to do the surgery for nothing if EJ would agree to take my insurance for the hospital part and they still turned it down! Now instead of scheduling surgery that I need ASAP, I'm hunting for a surgeon!!! I also don't live here, but came for the best doctors! Thanks to Dr. Rolston and Dr. Brothers for going to bat for me!! EJ can kiss my Grits!!!

Cardio future patients be aware!!! The staff appears to be nice and friendly, but the reality is you will not be involved in your care. Your medicine might be changed, and Dr Rivera response will be that of a politician, when forced on target, he will confest that your numbers where good? If that's not a problem why fix it. You will be feed the wrong diet, if you tell them they will put it in computer although your plate will still have the wrong foods. The nurses will not give you your meds as prescribed. Therefore causing raised blood sugar. And the over talkative nurse Angel will try to talk to the Dr for you, but can't give the care you need. If you happen to be here have someone with you at ALL times.

Do not go to the ER. I laid in severe pain for the better part of 9 hours and find that highly negligent. Added to the fact that my cardiologist called ahead to let them know I was on my way in and he was doing a cath on me that afternoon or evening. So, they should have been prepared for me. Either they don't care or they are not following national guidelines from every medical association that states that the patient should be alleviated from pain as a primary objective. Either the hospital needs to change their guidelines or the doctors need to re-evaluate their treating methods. I filed a complaint with the hospital. Neither the Chief Medical Officer nor my own cardiologist has reached out to me to discuss this after sending them a letter to them personally. Instead I received a letter from my cardiologist stating that he would no longer be my treating physician. I guess they just don't care at East Jefferson General Hospital.

Bad service , even keeping in mind it's an ER in a hospital still extremely ripoff billing and very bad customer service in the billing department . They do not make you feel that they care or friendly.
