    HOPE--A WOMEN'S CANCER CENTER
    I now know that I had DCIS, which is a precancerous tumor that was very small and could have been treated medically. It would be like finding a polyp on a colonoscopy and being told they needed to remove your entire intestinal tract. Dr Case used fear factors to scare me into making a decision that was not necessary all in the name of making money.

    Mission Hospital
    In the hospital I didn't get very good care and this is suppose to be a really good hospital.  In the end they had a thing where they have hospitalist that talk to you, you know, and assess you and stuff.  The last guy I was seeing, he never even examined me.  I think first off, for a doctor, if they don't examine you, you know, then there's something wrong.  He had been reading my material and all that and he was just saying certain testing that needed to be done.  I was trying to get them to notice the way my muscles catch around my mid drift all the way around because I'm just trying to figure out what it means and the nurse, I said it's right now it's happening, there all knots.  I said if you would check it out then maybe you could put it in the report, he just ignored me.  It just really wasn't that happy of an experience.  I was there December 31st to the 1st.  I was totally unprepared but I muddled through it.  The price was outrageous, of course the price is always outrageous.  I do have medical insurance so that picked that up for me.  The ridiculous thing at the end was at this hospitalist who had been in, I decided after he left the room, then I realized, you didn't even touch me, you didn't even check out my back, you didn't even do like anything at all that would have only taken you a few minutes and might have given you information that would have been useful.  Because he wanted me to stay and have more tests but it was Friday and he said I don't think you can have the test done over the weekend so I said well then there's really no sense in my staying, I'm not having that much fun, I didn't have a lot of the stuff I needed etc.  So I was leaving and I wanted to send a message to him and the nurse said there was no way of doing that.  I just thought that was totally bizarre.  Availability could be hard because you know your waiting in the waiting room for awhile but they also had me in the heart unit and the heart unit is pretty quick about picking people up.  The environment was clean, efficiently run from what I could see.  They seem to work on their own time.  The staff friendliness was a mixed bag.  The bedside/chair side manner depends because I was in the emergency section and there was three female doctors who came in and checked me out so I think it was fine but if it was, I had all women in the emergency room, they were giving me good information, they were letting me know how much long it would be or whatever, saying what the next step was and doing testing and hooking me up here and there and I thought that was effective and giving me a running update of what was going on so that was all good.  Communication was over my head, they were talking about I really didn't understand and my level of jargin they didn't seem to communicate with very much, so that was off.  Well uh, no, it didn't work because I'm still having to do follow up testing and they never did anything about the reasons I was really there.  Well administration when I got there and went through intake so I guess that was mediocre.  I really don't have much choice, there the only game in town.

    Asheville Surgery Center
    Check in was on time, smooth with no wait, and efficient. Renee took my history, including going over all of my many allergies, gave me eye drops, took vitals, explained the pre-surgery procedure and made me comfortable with nice warm blankets after I was gowned. I had a visit with the anesthesiologist and Dr. Stone before being taken to the OR where Matt Morris, the Nurse Anesthesist explained what medications he would administer and how they would work. I was amazed that I felt awake and could converse with everyone during the surgery and feel absolutely no pain. Matt did a fantastic job, as did Dr. Stone.
    After the surgery I was helped into a chair and wheeled into the recovery area where Donna offered me something to eat and drink while my vitals were being monitored. She checked on me often and escorted me to my ride home when it was time.
    This is our third experience with the Asheville Surgery Center and, although I hope it will be our last, I would not hesitate to use them again. They provide coffee for the family while they wait and have an electronic board so the family can track the patients progress. We are so fortunate to have this facility available.

    Charles George VA Medical Center
    Very busy Hospital in the Clinics. All staff were friendly, courteous, and professional. My Primary Care Physician was very patient and explained any problems and concerns clearly and concisely. He specifically clarified the results of an old consult concerning kidney function.
    I am a retired army combat medic and practical nurse with 20 years experience in government hospitals and clinics.

    Mission Hospitals
    Was in the hospital from Monday to Friday. Hospitalist Dr. Mims was excellent and brought in hemotologist Dr. Christopher Chay as consult. Dr. Chay is excellent doctor with a very good reputation and diagnosed and treated rare form of anemia. Communcation between doctors and patient was very good, just as it was in previous hospital stay.
    Observations: All rooms are singles and most have recliners in addition to a straight back chair. Recliner is good for the patient as well as visitors/caregivers who stay all day. Hospital food looks and tastes as good as what you'd get in a restaurant. The same is true of the cafeteria. Nursing care (including CNAs) on the 8th floor didn't seem to be as good as that on the 6th floor, as experienced in March stay. They were sometimes late for vitals and medications. Even food delivery wasn't as good as previous hospital stay.

    Mission Hospital
    They provide excellent care, they are very responsive. The hospital itself is just top rated and we are very fortunate to have them in our small community. The pre-op procedure was longer than the actual surgery but that is typical. Staff are very personable. My recent experience was wonderful.

    St Joseph's Hospital Emergency Room
    My husband checked in at 7:45 am for surgery.  He was processed quickly, with a very short wait time before taken back for pre-op.  He was given an IV and some medication before the surgery by a competent nurse.  Additional doctors and nurses came in to check on and interview my husband before the surgery began.  Each one was friendly and competent.  Almost two hours later he was taken into surgery, which last a little over an hour.  After 1 1/2 hrs. in post-op, he was discharged and returned home with clear instructions for home care.

    Mission Hospital
    After checking in at the ER desk, my husband was evaluated very quickly and taken to a room. After some initial pain meds were given, X-rays were taken. The ER nurse was very attentive to my husband's needs. After little relief from the pain, he arranged for some additional medication. Once my husband's pain was under control, he was sent home with an appointment to see a specialist on Monday. Our time in the ER was about 2 1/2 hrs.

    Mission Hospital
    This was such a great experience! While I had originally planned on a home birth, I had to be induced early due to complications in my pregnancy. I was really not looking forward to being in the hospital for my delivery, but the staff was amazing! They put me at ease and listened to what I had to say. They didn't push me into any decisions and they were extremely helpful with their guidance once the baby was born. Having been there for one birth, I would absolutely choose them for my next child.

    I go to a foot therapist Christa Kelly she works with Mission Hospital. She is a physical therapist that specializes in feet. She is very knowledgeable on how the feet work. She gives the people orthotics that is very reasonable. She understands the mechanics of the foot. She is the best I have ever been too.
