Elmhurst Memorial Hospital Complaint - HMO Doctors at Elmhurst Memorial Hospital

Review by Djidja on 2006-02-24
ELMHURST, ILLINOIS -- My son is caughing blood and has chest pains while breathing.When he went to see a doctor at the Elmhurst Memorial Clinic, doctor told him that blood is from the nose bleed and that even though it might be bronchytis,my son should not worry. If he starts feeling worse he is to go to the emergency room and get help.
I am really surprised that this kind of people are allowed to practice medicine. I would like to hear from other people about their experience with these doctors.Maybe together we can make the difference.

I haven't had any experiences with them but it is my opinion that perhaps your son should take the time to go ahead and go to the emergency room. Really, if the doctors are truly bad at that establishment, and you and your son are recognizing that, the responsibility then falls on your son (should he be old enough to take on that responsibility) to get a second opinion. Doctors are a dime a dozen (sheesh...don't I wish) and are located everywhere, certainly there is someone out there that can offer a second opinion. For health's sake, I'd see another doctor just to be sure. JMHO

Have to agree with Candy. You should take him to the emergency room today for a second opinion. He obviously was ill enough to seek the help of a physician in the first place, so, why would you wait for treatment.

Good grasp of the obvious NHB.
