There's an older asian man doctor, I've had him 2x and he was great. On the other hand, Dr. Snidow was a complete jerk to me.

She is the worst doctor there! I wouldn't take my dog to see her. Dr Snidow can be a jerk but is a competent doctor. Dr Garcia is old and a little slow but not a bad doctor.

Not sure about the quality of them...but as for the quantity I can tell you they need many more. That place would be going in reverse if it went any slower.

Have you all tried Med Express beside of Walmart?
I really like their doctors and staff. You are in and out pretty fast and they do have a xray machine. It is a whole lot cheaper than the PCH ER also. They even call you in a day or so to see how you are.
wow

That my friend, is a fact!

One of the nice things that the government has done recently (we often hear of the bad, but not the good) is creating a website where you can look up ratings, rankings, and details of hospitals on this website:

http://www.hospitalcompare.hhs.gov

It was in the paper a while back but a lot of people didn't notice it. Lots of interesting information there!

PCH ER Sucks

Princeton, WV

#16 Oct 19, 2012
After numerous horrible experiences and even more frightening stories our family abstains from going to the ER at PCH. We use Med Express for most issues or our family doctor. If an emergency arises and it isnít life threatening I would recommend Radford or Raleigh General. Heck I would recommend anyone but Bluefield or Princeton. All other hospitals I have been to have been good experiences (if you ignore the reason for going). Princeton has the rudest most unprofessional staff I have ever seen in any business let alone the health care industry. I guess they think people wonít go anywhere else. I donít know the reason, but there is absolutely no excuse for the way they treat people. You can count on waiting most of the day to see a doctor. After you do finally get seen you sit / lay in the room for hours waiting to leave. It is ridiculous! If you factor in the wait time you could drive to Charlotte and see a doctor faster. A family member of mine went there earlier in the year with severe abdominal pains (3 days of pain). They did x-rays, CT ect and said it was gas after laying in the hospital for the entire day. My wife took him straight to Charlotte. After 1 hr of arriving in the ER they found he had complete blockage of the intestine. They said much longer and he could have DIED! I have heard many similar horror stories. If you want to kill someone by all means take them to the PCH ER.

Maybe PCH needs the administration changed to one that really cares about the hospital and it's employees as well as the community. To say you care is one thing; to show it is another. It's a shame when the employee moral is low and being afraid to say so for fear of losing your job or in some cases already lost your job. Or maybe just maybe the underlying plan is to make it look bad on purpose so that an outside company will come in and "buy".????? PCH has great employees and DR.s. Just maybe a change up front is needed.????
PCH is Nasty

Bluefield, WV

I am really shocked at the nastiness of the hospital. Back in day, you would have never seen that place nasty like it is now. The bedrails are nasty. The floors are nasty. Dust and crud in all the rooms and bathrooms. No wonder people are contacting Mersa there!
it is a shame

employees at PCH work hard ummm some of them. but overall they are great employees. they can only do as much as the management provides in terms of supplies,etc. the place could look way much better if so much money wasn't put outside on expensive outsourced landscapers. employees are job scared so they don't complain but ask some outside of work and they will say conditions are bad. could it be that the plan is to make it look trashy on purpose so that the city will sell? hmmmmm!!!!

PCH is a good hospital. People think they can go in the ER like it was McDonald's and get in and out with a big mac. But you don't understand how hard they work. I am sorry if your toe pain that has been there for 6 months is not an emergency, and the guy next door is having a heart attack. The census in the ER has tripled and the providers work long and hard to keep people moving and happy, but sometime you can't help the 9 squads that roll in the door and 5 of them are serious, and the 30 in the waiting room. Don't complain until you have been in there shoes. No one is perfect, but they work hard and care for the patients. Just don't get all worked up when your toe pain is the last on the list, because in the next room some is fighting for their life. (OH and its not MERSA its MRSA (methycillian resistant staphyloccocus Aureus).
