Patient Comments (1)
Houston, TX |
My dad was at the emergency room and you were the doctor on emergency call. The ER doctor at Slidell memorial would not call you to get the order for platelets which were at 7,000. I called the emergency line and your response is they need to call you. Their response is you need to call them and they can give them to him. After 6 hours and several individuals with the flu being around my dad who's white blood count was at 1.0 we left the hospital with him with no platelets! Hope we make it till
