What Our Patients Say

  • "Amazing ER nursing staff. ER doctor made me feel completely at ease despite my 10+ pain level. Great ER staff!!"
  • "Dr. Eric Ball [ER] - Excellent. We just moved here from Dallas - I had gone to an urgent care place in Pueblo - zero was done there - didn't know about Trinidad. This is an excellent ER - the nurse that attended me and Dr. Ball were professional - diagnosed COVID straight away - I hope I don't ever need to but I'd return there...45 years of nursing myself - I've never been so ill. You are awesome!"
