Patient Comments (2)
Columbus, OH |
Dr. Fikes attended to my mom on the 4th floor of Riverside Hospital as she had an extended stay, the past several months. Dr. Fikes was very caring, understanding of my moms conditions and listened to her family members concerns. He was very respectful of my mom and family and understood as a whole our family network set up for her at home. He pin pointed my moms last illness and made the final decision and the final plan to get my mom ready to be released
in Powell, OH |
If I/we could leave a zero star review, I would. Dr. Fikes had no compassion for my grandmother and our family during a recent stay in ICU at Riverside Hospital. Not only did he awaken us late at night for no reason, he attempted to instill panick in us by sharing his opinion about our Grandmother's overall health issues in which we were completely aware of before his call. He also would not step out of her room when we arrived and asked multiple times so not to talk in front of her.
