My husband had an issue so we went to the emergency room at 3 on Sunday. I really think they had no doctors attending the ER. After an hour and a half he was seen by a PA and given a diagnosis and we were told the doctor would see him and recommend treatment. After another hour we spoke with a nurse and asked how long it would be and also asked for an ultrasound, she never came back. We stayed in the ER four hours and never saw a doctor.

They took excellent care of my dad! Much better than Myrtle Beach hospitals. It’s worth the extra 30/40min Drive.

If I could give no stars I would! The E.R is terrible, you hear the staff laughing and joking around while people have to wait till their done to check in. I know their jobs are not easy but most of their doctors and nurses are just ignorant and rude. I've been sent home crying in pain and the nurses tell you to just come back in 24hrs when the new doctor comes in and hopefully they are more understanding. And don't let you have sickle cell ( my sister and I have it), they treat you even worse. They don't think it's important but It is if people are dying from it. My family has finally decided to move from Charleston so me and my sister can get better care. They think we want to be in there NASTY E.R dealing with unprofessional nurses and doctors. Being admitted isn't any better. You get rude nurses and doctors there too. MUSC needs to get new doctors and nurses who actually wanted to become a doctor or a nurse to help people and get them feeling better, instead of these careless doctors and nurses that are worried about their paycheck. WORSE HOSPITAL EVER

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!!
