On May 2, 2012, Peter "Pete" Sumaruck - a famed Texas inventor - was held against his will for 12 hours at Scott & White Hospital in Tyler, Texas where he was handcuffed by 5 police officer, repeatedly assaulted by hospital staff and held in locked confinement for hours. When Mr. Sumaruck asked police what law he had broken, they replied, "None." He was not a patient at the hospital, he had only stopped by their pharmacy, asking to refill a prescription. Police put him on a gurney in Emergency, while a hospital staff person said, "If you get off this gurney, I'm gonna whip your ass." Mr. Sumaruck did not try to get off the gurney, but staff proceeded to repeatedly assault him, with blows to the upper torso, including his throat,even after he told them how he had experienced very serious carotid artery surgery, now with a visible scar. After many hours, in a small locked examination room, they heavily sedated him and immediately put Mr. Sumaruck outside in the dark, to make his own way home. See article: Now Scott and White has asked him to pay a hospital bill for being kidnapped and assaulted.

I have not been pleased with my care from the GI department (Dr Jeffries) at Scott and White. I was prescribed an antibiotic 8 days ago and because they have not followed thru with the pre authorization, I have still not been able to pick up my medicine. This is not good patient care/customer service. Not to mention the time it has taken to call daily to check on the process. I've been promised numerous times that everything was taken care of and that if and when they had new information they would contact me but not once have they taken the initiative to contact me.
