How do you REALLY feel about Archbold Hospital?

I am new to the area and I hear a lot of talk about Archbold hospital. Is this a place I should seek medical attention or should I just drive to Tallahassee?

I've lived in Thomas County for almost 40 years. I was OK with Archbold until a few years ago when I had a VERY serious medical problem. My Family Doctor AND the Emergency Room both dropped the ball on diagnosing what was wrong and if a totally different physician hadn't been called in for a consultation about why I was bleeding freely from a place that didn't correspond to the hospital's diagnosis then they would not have found the real problem before I died. As it was I was taken after midnight one evening in an ambulance to Tallahassee for emergency surgery that was successful despite all the local hospital could do. My wife and I have an agreement... if one of us has to go to the emergency room, the other gives it a few hours and if progress isn't seen or a specific diagnosis made that seems to fit the symptoms, she or I (depending on who's the patient) will call the ambulance again and transfer to Tallahassee Memerial... or South Georgia Medical Center in Valdosta... for serious medical problems, the local hospital is a good backup, but as long as you can get somewhere else in time, I wouldn't depend on Archbold. There are some good doctors in Thomasville too, but if you watch you'll see most of them are "owned" by Archbold. If you want specific references just reply on this blog again and I'll continue regarding particular doctors I like and don't.
