My review is based on my brother's experience here. He went to the ER with serious stomach issues. If you go to the Emergency room, bring a book because you're gonna be there for HOURS! When they finally get you back, consider yourself lucky if you get room and not just put in a stretcher pushed against the wall in a busy hallway and don't even ask for a pillow! If you don't have health insurance, you're treated even worse. The staff is judgmental and unprofessional. The place is understaffed and filthy. This place is a teaching hospital so be prepared to be practiced on after you sign a consent for treatment. Sadly, this is the best that the lowcountry has to offer

Don’t go here if you’re a type one diabetic. They’ll turn you away at the ER while in DKA and won’t give you the correct insulin scripts— which leads to DKA or death. Thanks guys!

COUNTY HOSPITAL! If you've ever heard of any city with a county hospital well this is Charleston's county. Places patients in the hallways, no privacy, you can be sitting by someone with staph or a mental issues and they would not care. Residents are your doctors and when you ask for a doctor they will say they are or they can do the same work. Just compare this to a GRADY! SMH

My mother had surgery there a week ago. It has been nothing but problems since then. We were not allowed to see her until 6 hours after her surgery but the staff expected us to wait in the waiting room the whole time and would scold us if we left. She was discharged 5 days after surgery after being mistreated by the staff. She went there for an appointment today to remove a feeding tube she did not consent to receiving and they told her to come back next week. We live over 3 hours away. We have had to come 4 different times in the past week. Lack of compassion and no communication from the staff. As soon as this ordeal is over, we will never be back to this hospital and I would suggest no one else goes here to receive care. We have never had such a chaotic experience dealing with a hospital, it is unacceptable.

On Monday, April 8 I arrived with friends to visit someone in Ashley Tower. Crystal Nichole Love Gutierrez warmly greeted us and checked us in. Her great smile, and humor made us feel so welcomed. I accidentally left my ID at her desk and she sent someone upstairs to my friend's room to deliver it to me. AMAZING!! Please give this young woman my sincere thanks and gratitude for going above and beyond!! She is a keeper!!
