I have had a bad experience with Holzer ER at Jackson and Dr. Kennedy. Has anyone had one with either?

Is Adena at Chillicothe better than Holzer?
true

I don't like Holzer at all but I have someone very close to me be admitted and dr Kennedy was the doctor! He was absolutely amazing! Dudda should've been sued years ago! Overall dr Kennedy is a great doctor actually knows what he's doing and talking about!

i dont know doctor kennedy at all , so i cannot say anything about that.

what i can say, other than holzer has the most horrible, if it was anything else, illegal, billing system i have ever seen. triple bills? and i dont want to hear nonsense. its nonsense. paying two accountants, everyone. i am the guy paying. so get off YOUR high horse on thinking you build a seperate building and it is a seperate billing process. only in a world where the president forces health INSURANCE on people instead of forcing health CARE on doctors and insurance companies. but i digress...

the emergency room is a horrible situation for everyone involved. no doctor wants to be there. think about it. between the gunshots, car crashes, rapes and assaults, come all the people with bad hearts, stomachs, etc, whatever is hurting them enough to come to this overbilling flesh warehouse... and a good portion of them are addicts. and everyone knows what the doctor's number one job in america is, right? say it in unison? PRESCRIBING PILLS. so, in between all the real stuff, obvious and not, going on, guess what the doctor REALLY has to be thinking about with EVERY FACE he sees? "is this something that will get me before the ethics board?"

so they get to run EXTRA tests on you if they cant SEE it (bleeding out, etc). not to really find anything- just to see how far you will go before you get the meds to get the hell out of there. addicts wont keep going and going, right?......

so i guess, in a nutshell, there it is. if your heart hurts, call YOUR doctor. if your stomach hurts, CALL YOUR DOCTOR. because unless you are bleeding out, holzer is not worth the time. and once you pay your first, pay your second, pay your third bill, you will most likely say it is not worth the money either unless you are dying and its something as simple as "patchwork".

oh and ps before someone scream "youre broke" im not talking about kicking it to other groups if you dont pay. i can only IMAGINE how horrible THAT system must be.

i was referring to how they send you three bills for the same services rendered, with different definitions like "this one is for the doctors". in the real world, in the real BUSINESS world, where the government doesnt hide our nonsense, we have to collect money for a job when the job is DONE, ONCE, and do our own math to pay OUR PEOPLE.

notice DONE is highlighted as well. in the real world, we still have to get the job DONE before we can charge you. and if we do something that had NOTHING to do with what you asked? well guess what? in the REAL WORLD, its hard for us to charge you for that. nothing quite like a doctor who charges on three tests when he learned what he should off one, and thinkg the wood came free with putting his porch on.

definition of a racket ladies and gentlemen.:)

My husband went their by ambulance with severe chest pains, trouble breathing, etc..They took him into the E.R. and he never went any further than that, they came in did a few tests and spoke to him, they released him a little while late with some messed up diagnosis and within a week the bills starting coming in, now we get them at least 3 times a week and they won't work with us on the amount we can pay toward the bill so we tell them they will get it, when we get it, for what little they did and I do say little, the bill is outrageous, thousands of dollars and for what, absolutely nothing, no prescriptions, no actual diagnosis, just a bunch of malarkey. Holzer has people here over a barrel because there is no real competition here. That's the problem with everything in Jackson county, especially in Wellston where it is a ghost town and unless you want to drive to Jackson, you have to get what they offer. I was floored by their rates. It seems to be highway robbery.

I have had Dr Kennedy as a doctor at Holzer and if it wasn't for him, I would have died. He is a really good doctor and I would recommend him to anyone.

Hi Kaiged

If you can and it's not that far go to Kings Daughters they have a Family Helth Care in Ironton and a urgent care just when you go down 93 past Oak Hill and it's on the left as you go in Ironton.

There Hospital is very Good

If you need a number to call I'll msg you it.

Dr. Kennedy isn't an ER doctor there. He is one of the inpatient doctors. You should probably know the ER doc's correct name before you go blasting them on the Internet.

I'd rather die on the way to Chillicothe. Is it true that the EMS will only take you to the nearest facility?

It is true if it is an emergency they will only take you to the nearest facility.

To doesn't make sense, I did not blast him on the internet and if you read my message I did not indicate he was the ER Doctor. I just said I had a bad experience with both.

Well, color me impressed.

Several people here defend this Dr. Kennedy. Maybe he had a bad day the day he messed someone else up? Who knows.

I find it truly impressive that it is open knowledge that they over bill, ruin people's credit even when they pay, and multiple other issues stated here more than a year ago...

Where is the accountability people? I get the feeling Doc Kennedy is just like the rest of them- 5 people likem and the rest get screwed. So instead of him, is it Holzer's fault? Oh, instead of Holzer, is it the regulatory functions that should be overseeing these people- ie the government? Oh, but wait, if you do not buy in you are supposed to be the problem, hence taxation penalties for not buying insurance.....

So, just for the record, the accountability falls on people who would be very willing to pay a reasonable price for care but do not get care because it is not in a reasonable price range?

Am I misunderstanding something about the concept of accountability? Oh, wait, this must be the millenial generation's fault just like the immigrants coming over for better jobs and being called criminals is their faults, right?

How is a vast majority so stupid as to think "it's the welfare people's fault" when we print the money?

Someone is taking the money. It must not be ya'll who are screaming "I am sick of paying your bills". Well, obviously, it is not the folks who are taking the government benefits , earned or otherwise, to keep themselves from dying. I highly doubt either side is doing that "for profit", unless you get into "the scum who sell pills" because the pills are worth 10k a bottle because it costs 15k of tests to get near them....

Who, oh wide, wonderful majority of folks, do you honestly think might, just could be, taking all this money?

If we don't have it, who does? Did it just disappear? Doubtful.

The biggest problem we face as a nation is accountability, from personal and individual, to professional and corporate. The biggest criminals commit crime with a pen.
