New to the area and my husband needs a Gastroenterologist for a endoscopy. Is Abbott Northwestern a decent source for medical care... or are the better choices? Any help would be appreciated.

Reasonable choice. I have used it in the past, with no problems. Fortunately, medical coverage in Minneapolis is excellent, and they're a number of good hospital and clinics.

You're fine at Abbott, good reputation.

Stay away from this hospital.

They need to post armed guards outside the ER to protect hospital workers from "groups of people."

A gunman opened fire in downtown Minneapolis on Tuesday, spraying rounds toward an emergency room entrance at Hennepin County Medical Center.

The gunfire that erupted after a dispute between two groups of people at the hospital shattered windows and hit an SUV during the middle of the afternoon at the busy downtown intersection. No one was injured.

“It was just ‘Boom, boom, boom, boom, boom,’ ” said Rashad Jackson, a cook’s assistant at HCMC.

That wasn't Abbott, you moron. It was Hennepin County. Stay on topic and stop rambling... like you always do.

First off, ignore the troublemakers and malcontents.

Abbott is a great hospital. You should feel confident that your husband is receiving care there. You will be very satisfied. Hope that helps a bit, in a more positive vain.

Trying to help someone new to the area with MY personal opinion, based on MY experience. Give it a break with these adversarial posts. You're embarrassing yourself. Act like a normal adult.

No one cares when or how you wound up in Minnesota. You're worth less.

Worthless is one word. As in "Abdual is worthless and a loser". Please make a note of that.

Thanks for all your responses, the serious ones anyway. I think he made a good choice... I just wanted to hear it from other recent patients. The only opinion we had was from his new Primary Care doctor who is on staff there.

Always get another opinion. Thanks again.
