Dorminy is an asset to the community. They've made a lot of improvements in the last few years. They are expanding their services every day with the new influence that Phoebe brings to the table. Many rural communities would be thrilled to have this facility available to them. You don't realize how good you have it to have them here. With them in town you have access to a variety of specialists and family care. Most rural towns do not have that luxury. I have used their services several times and have nothing but good things to say about my experiences. I don't understand why anyone would want to talk badly about a facility that we are lucky to have.

While I agree that they have capable and qualified staff who took excellent care of me recently, I have a problem with their "co insurance" up front policy. This "co insurance" is what is left of the bill after your insurance has been billed only they want it before they even bill the insurance. If you don't have it to give them for an out patient test then they can refuse to provide service. They don't want to discuss payment options, they want the money up front. That's hard for someone needing tests done who can't give them $300 up front. I think they need to revist the financial policy and this economically depressed area.

The baby remark got to me. I lost my baby while in the hospital in 02. I have got to say Dr. Parham did a very good job at trying to save my baby. The nurses was wonderful all but one and she was let go not long after I had my daughter. Although I may not always like what they do we have to remember that the nurses only do what the dr's tell them to do. The hospital is made up of mostly just the nurses. Also it's your choice what hospital you want to go to. If you don't like it go somewhere else. It's like eating out if you eat where the food is bad your not going to go back...

Amanda that was in bad taste, I apologize, I have 5 kids and that was wrong of me to say. I'm so sorry for that. My point is, they've been notorious for being under staffed and having incompetent people. I should of said that.

Just a few questions-If you go to Walmart, McDonald's, Burger King or any business for that matter, do you say, oh by the way, I don't have the money to pay right now but I will later. Do you get your purchased items or food without paying up front? The inventory has to be there to take care of the patient. Where to you think the money comes from? Just curious?

Local I do see your point. My issue is that they want not only the copay...which I have no problem with...but they also want the remainder of what will be left after insurance pays... except they want it up front before the file the insurance.

And probably with the co-pay and what the insurance pays, the cost is more than covered, and this includes some profit. The remainder is more profit.

first of all every hospital wants copay upfront,some will work with you on co-pay. my thing is sickness or accidents are not planned,most people do not have the money to pay at the time of service,every hospital schould work with patients. I would like to add Dorminy has the best day surgery anywhere!The nurses are super great!!

I don't understand why people want to trash businesses in their own community.I have found Dorminy Medical Center to be a very professional hospital that gives great care. I think we are blessed to have them and should support them.

DMC is several times better than it was a couple of weeks ago, They have changed alot of positions and put professionals that actually care and know what they are doing, The new er manager Kelly is rocking with new changes that has doing nothing but make things better. The employess that dont cut it are being moved or let go, Best thing in the world for Pheobe , Dorminey
