Every time we come here for labs, service is excellent. Very friendly, hardly any wait time and in and out for lab work. Have to get blood checked regularly and they get the job done. Professional, friendly service.
I had the privilege to be a patient in Cannon Memorial Hospital. I enjoyed the staff and the stay itself. They have helped me in ways they probably couldn’t believe. I would like to think that I was also helpful during my stay.
Nobody really enjoys visiting the ER, but I will say that our recent visit was a positive experience. The doctors and nurses were all very attentive and caring. We were there for somewhere around 6 hours or more, and we never went more than 30 minutes without someone checking in on us. Treatment began basically as soon as we got there, and no time was wasted waiting to be seen or waiting on paperwork. We were even pleasantly surprised at how quickly test results came back! We were kept informed during the whole process and were even given choices in my son’s care.
