"Within 15 minutes of arriving at Saint Anne's ER, I had already registered, been triaged, met my tech and RN, seen the physician assistant, and was medicated. Incredulous. ... My doctor is, without a doubt, in the right profession, and I was completely honored to have him as my attending ER physician. ... No ambiguity here - my care was excellent by all those involved with me as their patient. ... Saint Anne's should be extremely proud to have all of the employees choosing Saint Anne's for their employer."
