Piedmont Hospital

Posted on: 1/19/2010

Talks and thinks highly of itself

I have stayed at Piedmont at least 3 times and I can't say that I have ever had an exceptional stay. It is so over rated it is a joke. The ER is so jaded and I have been sent home almost 2 times with some serious problems but "to them" everything looks great! The only reason I ever go there is a couple of my MD's practice there and I have no choice but I DO have a choice and I won't choose to go to Piedmont again. The rooms aren't great, some of the staff are nice but the ER staff are a joke as are the MD's. Some of the internist on the floor are pretty pathetic also. Don't seem to really know whats going on the hospitalist do not. Get em in and out! It doesn't matter whether you are ready or not. It would be so much better if they would actually live up to "THEIR PROMISE" and take care of the patient and listen. People aren't coming here to pay thousands of dollars because they are bored, I mean thats a new car! Work on your ethics all the way around and work on getting your staff to remember all cancer's aren't the same and neither are patients so look at them as individuals.

Its all in the name

Can't say enough great things about these people and their "job". They are wonderful and like family to me. They know me way too well and that says too much about my mouth but I would recommend them to anyone and have to many of my friends. You couldn't ask for a better staff to work on your mouth and your psych while in the chair. I hate the dentist and now, well I still don't like it but I love going to see Dental TLC!!!! RG

Emory Johns Creek Hospital

Nice Hospital Please Read Label before tearing it

Hospital itself was nice. A lot of money was spent on the hospital. Some of these doctors practice at other hosp. I am sure; I wonder if this is their protocol everywhere? The protocol for pain management is poor at John's Creek. I haven't ever been anywhere, where the treating ER MD couldn't understand allergies to medication and be able to work around it to help with pain control (amazing). After being in the ER for 4 hours in excruciating pain finally I was told "we are going to give you a little something we don't want you to have a reaction,” I wanted to scream READ THE CHART we covered this in ER treatment 101 when I got here 3 hours ago. I was admitted and you guessed it, we were right back to the pain control train. Regardless, I was sick literally from the pain and ask numerous times, they gave the equivalent to Tylenol IV. I ended up having surgery you got it, no post op pain control. I am a nurse and Post Op is def. where pain control is given and needed. It is not the rule there, it is def. the exception. It took a lot of asking and questioning to get anything done. This leaves me baffled. They have a great facility some great nurses, and the MD's are nice, but someone forgot to sit down and find an effective policy for pain management. Room service and big rooms only go so far. There are people in pain and not seeking drugs, remember that. If you’re that jaded get out of medicine. Don't make us suffer. No two illnesses are alike. Glad my surgeon was nice.

Richter, Gary C MD

Posted on: 10/2/2006

Not Recommended

Dr. Richter is very impersonable along with not being thorough or telling you what is happening. I found his staff rude and the office very disorganized. Along with that the doctor himself was not easy to speak with and did not follow through to make sure I was treated properly. I wouldn't recommend him to anyone.
