I have had some horrible experiences with Massac memorial. But they have all been with the same Doctor, DonVito. They need to let him go I have filed two complaints against him. He is rude and had diagnosed me 3 different occasions, all wrong. Once he told me I had a miscarriage, just to find out I had not even been pregnant, but instead had gallstones. Second when I was pregnant, he told me there was no baby and the nurse told my husband that I lied to him about being pregnant, after she had given me an ultrasound, just to find out that my HCG levels were not high enough, So that baby I was not pregnant with turned 3 a few months ago. And then I had one bad nurse, I went in with chest pains, thought I was having a heart attack, and when I got back there the lady tells me, well your too young to be having chest pains, tell me the truth are you just here to get pain pills. I was shocked hearing that honestly, I know a lot of people do go out there for scripts, but you dont just ask someone that, I was seen, she drug tested me first, and later apologized to me.. It took 7 months of chest pains, and hospital vistis and tests, just to figure out it was the depo shot, that was causing me to have chest pains, and severe headaches.. Most of the time, I have been there, I have had good experiences, other than with Dr. DonVito, and then that one lady who kind of just assumed and wasnt going to see me.. I got to where if I needed to go out there I would call and see which Dr is there. Last time I called fist and they wouldnt tell me I asked if it was DonVito, and they said no I took my daughter out there with a earache and a fever of 103 which nothing was breaking her fever, and she was already taking medication for her ear, but she started developing a rash, I go out there it was right after they got the new ER done, there was one computer and the receptionist told me she couldnt list all of the info in the system to tell them when the nurse comes back there about her rash, well the doctor comes in and I asked about the rash, of course it was DONVITo after they told me it wasnt and another Dr. was listed on her armband, so I tell him about the rash, and he just looked at me and said it doesnt say nothing about a rash in the paperwork, if you want to be seen about a rash, youll have to re-register at the front to be seen about that and walked out... I filed a complaint by the next morning she was broke out from head to toe and turns out was having an allergic reaction to the original meds she was on from the ear infection.... get rid of Donvito, he seems to be the problem... everyone else seems great.

Keep your stupid sermon for your church buddies, because that is the only ppl who will fall for your lies! Satan is your God and you worship him well with your stupidity!!
Your the stupid one, and someday your day will come and you too will be the one in need. You can't talk as you do about people without paying for your ugliness. What goes around comes around remember that. I don't need your acknowledgment to be a lawyer, I worked very hard to get where I am and I personally do not care what you think of me. You should however be concerned for yourself as it is not normal to harbor such ill feelings and thoughts where other people are concerned. Their situations are not yours to judge, and when you point a finger at someone else there are 3 of your own pointing back at you. You need to fix whatever is wrong in your life and leave everyone else alone. If the people you see at the hospital being treated bother you so much you need to find another job cause it is obvious that you do not have the heart to take care of people in need.

Ihave always gone to MMH. You have some great doctors there like Dr. Staton and Dr. Kloepp. Some of the others could use a little more education and better bed side manners. They missed my mothers broken knee cap. They missed my broken foot. But when I go in for my asthma I recieve appropriate care. When my daughter came down with strep and H1N1 at the same time they caught it right away and treated her accordingly. She recovered well. I guess it depends on what doctor you get and the mood of that doctor and the problem youre going in for.....

Boy that is just pure intelligence right there. It's no wonder MMH has the word of mouth reputation that it does. Ignorant ass people claiming to be employees and now one is threatening to kill someone. WOW, if I were you I would be worried about someone finding out your identity cause working at a hospital and threatening to kill someone with hospital equiptment is just not cool. Your Sick and now I have to worry about who is setting beside me at work. This is just great!

Kleop is the WORST doctor out there. I have always been treated great except by him. Called my doctor to see if I could been seen and explained what was going on. I was advised by him to go to the ER so that way I could get seen faster since his office was booked for two weeks. When I went out there I even told the person at the front what I was advised and said I'm in no hurry. He was so flipping rude and kept asking why are you really here. It took my doctor calling him and a couple of x-rays for him to realize I was really hurt and not there for pills or anything else. There are good people and there are bad people that work there. So I don't hold what he did against others there. Just sad some doc, nurses, staff judge people based upon looks or their insurance coverage. And that has ALWAYS been the case at Massac.

Wish I could afford to go to a Dr or an ER. No insurance, don't qualify for medical card. What's a guy to do? Don't make enough to be able to afford the high prices of Office call, ER visits, tests, scans, private pay is joke for those of us barely squeaking by. I never learned to play the system and ride the taxpayers dollar.

This should be taken seriously and reported to topix, so they can forward it to the appropriate authorities. This is a threat and not to be taken lightly.

. I feel ya. I am a single mom raising my child pretty much by myself. The state says I make too much money and therefore I can't get any aid. But the rep from Springfield told me flat out o if you quit your job or have another kid you can get all types of help. I was like wow and just hung up. That is just sick.

Its crazy. My wife and I are 58 and 61 so we are in the age bracket where we need medical attention but can't afford it and don't qualify for anything. Yep, they say "mortgage your home". So then what....two soon to be unemployed seniors with no income then become homeless? How does that help? Our system is screwed. Guess we need to take lessons from those who are born and raised on welfare then raise their families on welfare with each child drawing a crazy pension because they are bipolar or have adhd....or "hurt their back".

What you wrote is all to true! No wonder MMH ER workers get so stressed out about Public Aide people abusing the ER, when there are people like you and your wife that really need the medical Help. You do not need: drugs, a pregnancy test, medicine refills, tooth ache medicine, or a note for work. None of these are emergencies, but waste the time and money of tax payers dollars as they flood the ER time and time again. The whole public Aide system is a joke and the worst part is the cost. Not to the People using the Public Aide card, because they pay nothing, but the cost to the tax payers! Get off the drugs and don't sell them to supplement your income because you do not want to work. Go to family dollar and buy a 2.00 pregnancy test, or do it the old fashion way wait 9 months. Get your medicine refilled at your doctors office and if you have a tooth ache for God sake seek a dentist! If you need a note for work go get it from your family doctor. The Er charges you around $600.00 each er visit. That is an expensive pregnancy test. Who pays for that everyone who works and pays taxes. They wonder why IL is broke. Tax payers also pay higher insurance premiums to cover the uninsured. So if you work you get screwed paying high taxes and insurance premiums. Something has to give lets start with not using your public cards for non emergencies would be a start! If the ER at any hospital only seen true emergencies ( life threatening) the ER would be a place and so would it's workers bottom line.

I agree with you! I work @ MMH. It is a great place to work at. Sure you have some bad apples, but most of the people who work @ MMH are very caring, outstanding People. People would feel different if MMH would close down and they all had to travel to Paducah for services. So People Please be kind and if you have a problem with someone, just pray for them and pray for yourself to deal with these people. Show them love and kindness not hatred!
Hatred makes your heart hardened, love makes you humble!
