    tons of urine specimen cups in the sink....gross. Then there was another patient called back with me to get vitals at the same time in the same area we were bumping into each other. The staff were all in a rush. 1 hour wait, 2 nurses called me and gave me wrong results gave me a panic attack then called back and said they gave me wrong results and begged me to come back in for another testing for free. Shut this facility Down Someone please!
