    Buyer Beware for Highline Medical Center !!!

    Highline Medical Center Complaint by EmilyHill

    You were reading a complaint about Highline Medical Center.

    If you are smart enough to read this site, BEFORE you check in to Highline Medical Center, you are smart enough NOT TO GO to Highline Medical Center. They are a ‘regional’ hospital with send-out service for most lab tests – a downtown Seattle hospital will have in-house labs [translation: my sister waited FOUR days for a diagnosis of appendicitis while writhing in pain at Highline Medical [appendicitis! easy, right?? NOT for Highline Medical]; by the time the surgeon operated, her appendics had perforated and her recovery IN THE HOSPTIAL BED was one month! Highline Medical rates an 85% on national reviews for ability to diagnosis ailments [not good!most hospitals are getting 98%-100% ratings]. Buyer Beware!

    Solution?? Call 911 and zip up to ANY Seattle hospital for better care than this outfit
