You people know you can choose who-ever you want for physical therapy, home health, ect. Dont let them tell you who to use. They will use someone they have cut a deal with. Example if you need home health, you have every right to use the hospital. They always choose Intreped. You people stand up to them. The hospital has Murray Medical who are open all weekend also, and greatly accept walk-ins. They run me through like a cattle sale!

They provide immediate appointments, they have friendly staff, and a proper billing system. Everything Murray Hospital fails to provide.

Not all communities have good primary care physicians. We are lucky to have them.

Primary CARE? They don't "care" at all about you. They treat patients like factory parts on an assembly line. The managing partner is complaints about the hospital are destroying the communtity!

Primary Care is a joke!! They are not nice, they take forever, and they don't follow through. They definitely don't care about anything other than the money!! I know of about 10 occasions where they have misdiagnosed or not helped at all!! Including one being my own child. The 2 tests they ran on him both came back negative, but they said "we are going to treat him for strep throat anyways". Hello, if the swab and the blood test came back negative and he just got off of antibiotics for strep, why the hell would you treat him for that!! And then when you call up there and a nurse is supposed to call you back, it is either hours later or even the next day! I CAN'T STAND THEM!!

Doesn't anybody realize that thanks to the federal government, medicine has become a business now. Gone are the days of physicians deciding what's best for you. If things are not done correctly, with all the paperwork filled out exactly like some bureaucrat says it should be, the people taking care of you don't get paid. And I apologize if this offends anybody, but those people need to get paid.

Communication communication communication. That is one department someone providing you with health care should be top notch at but alas, Primary Care is not.

On two occasions I was never called back regarding test results and X-ray scans and I had to be the one who called to get piece of mind...a week after the fact. I kind of thought it was a part of their job to inform the patient of results, especially when "Esophageal Cancer" is brought up in the office visit.

Also my son's strep test came back negative and he was still prescribed antibiotics, which cleared whatever was bothering him but I'd rather they actually care find out what's wrong with my child when I bring him in. It's better to treat someone for what is specifically bothering them instead of just giving them some antibiotics and crossing their fingers.

Their system as a health care provider is broken and I hate that we are the one's who are paying for it.

Dr Birch is the best kids doctor around! She takes time to really talk to me and my son about what is going on with him. I changed my doctor there because every time I went I would have to see a nurse practioner and I am SORRY to offend anyone, but I pay to see a doctor not a nurse...and IF I go to the doctor I am TERRIBLE sick because I hate going. I found a doctor in Mayfield that I love, and I don't go back to Primary except for my children

Inconclusive visits, snobby nurses, and their interest is solely in money. I mean, what more do you need to know?

nurses are sometimes hateful, they make us feel that we are bothering them, I feel home at Murray Medical.
