We took my five year old son in to the Driscoll Urgent Care Center last night with difficulty breathing ( he was having asthma like symptoms even though he's never been diagnosed with asthma). He was having labored breathing wheezing, retractions, increased heart rate, and respiratory rate, and a red face. After waiting at least half an hour to be seen the doctor would not listen tell me about the symptoms my son was having. After spending about two minutes with us, my son was diagnosed with a cold/upper respiratory infection! When the nurse came back in to give us a prescription we told her that we were concerned about the diagnosis and would like for my son to be checked again. Neither the charge nurse nor the doctor came back in to check on my son. So, we left and were waiting for my son's prescription for COUGH SYRUP (praying that would be enough to get him through the night until we could get him to his pediatrician) and he fell asleep again and was having so much difficulty breathing we went straight to Driscoll hospital ER. They saw him immediately and said they don't know why he was diagnosed with an infection because he was clearly having an allergic reaction. By the time we got there he was having very laboured breathing, and he had swollen lips and red face. They said he's probably going to be diagnosed with asthma after consulting with his pediatrician. They gave him benadryl, an oral steroid and an inhaler with albuterol. The doctors and respiratory therapist at Driscoll ER were phenomenal. They spent the needed time with my son to properly diagnose him and get him the right treatment. We have a follow up with his Dr this afternoon. I hate to think what could have happened if we had taken the doctor ( Dr. Santiago) at the urgent care at his word and taken our son home all the way back to Sinton, which is 30 to 40 minutes from town. We will never go back to this urgent care center again.
