BigC, that is a lot of money. Do you owe that or insurance paying all of that? Just wondering, IF you do owe that, do you think that you would give up your leg for a fraction of that cost?

Reason for life flight? They did not want to be caught in houston traffic on the ambulance all the way to Galveston. I love my son to death and he is worth every dim of it. But still a little over priced I think. I think it could have been dealed with differently.

With all this in mind I must say try to avoid being taken to Cy-Fair Medical Center ER if you can.

My experiences relate from car crashes I've been in to friends being beaten with crow bars and I have yet to have a good experience with their ER.

Nothing says "we care about our patients" like falling over into the Dr. and unable to walk straight from head trauma to being sent out on your way back home without being diagnosed or treated with anything but some pain killers.

Wow, and I thought it was only one case.

A friend of mine had a severe stomach ache, went to Cy-fair and was sent home with pain killers. She was transported that night because she quit breathing. They did a catscan and found that her colon busted and she went into toxic shock. She was in a koma for a week. RIP Sherry.

better safe then sorry. that why you should have medical ins. if you ride motorcycles. along w/ life insurance.
My point was if someone you know lives close by call them instead. I believe they will get there alot quicker! I was rushed to the hospital once but had to wait in the lobby for 4 hours? No.

My T7 get-off at MSR Houston 2/25/07 fortunately did not result in bad injuries, however until the x-ray it was unknown what or if anything had been broken or torn up internally in my left hand. X-rays were negative for fractures. They gave me 2 different kind of pain pills and a script for more. No ambulance ride - the red dually with gixxerbill at the wheel (prolly scarrier than an ambulance - eh?). The total bill from the hosital/doctor/xray/etc. in Angleton was right at or slightly under $1000. I thought it was a bargain. They even gave me an extra fancy ice pack for my hand - to take home with me. I was VERY pleased with the quality of service - it was a little slow, but not bad all things considered. I'd go again in a heartbeat if I needed medical attention while at MSR.

surprisingly, Henderson Memorial was the best hospital I have ever been to. It was a small rinky place, probably orginally built in someones garage, but the people there were fantastic. There were only 2-3 people in the ER the whole day. Needless to say I got excellent attention, without ever having to wait on anything. I have been in ER's all over the country, and this was by far the best.

x rays in 5 minutes, sent to surgery after 5 minutes, and finished surgery after an hour

then 2 days later was kicked out and sent home of course lol

no complaints, and uh yeah total bill was 32,000, and some pennies lol
