While In Chattanooga... Avoid Erlanger North!!
CHATTANOOGA, TENNESSEE -- Recently I had a horrible experience at Erlanger hospital, (Erlanger North), in Chattanooga, TN. After almost two full weeks of stress and depression, mainly due to work and general issues, I had a breakdown one night and needed a doctor badly. Well, after waiting for almost 3 hours I was admitted, only to be ridiculed and told that they "weren't a psych ward for the crazies"!!!
As I explained to them I had never had these symptoms persist like this and the anxiety attacks and depression felt like I was dying, they told me to take 1 or 2 Benadryl and try to sleep. Well it was 4:00am by now and I was irate.
I have heard many other complaints about this hospital and now I know the truth... if you really are in need of a doctor, DO NOT visit Erlanger North.
