: "I went to Providence Holly Cross on May 1, 2016 having severe neck pain radiating to my right arm after accident, feeling dizzy , having unusually high blood pressure and rapid hear beat, The nurses can not care less and the Asian ER doctor spent less than 2 minutes to take few words of history and I gave him my 3 days earlier ER visit to Encino Hospital medical record as well as my pain management doctor who prescribed me strong pain meds. The physician told me he will get in contact with my pain managment physician on Sunday?!! I requested MRI of my spine, they refused and the charge nurse was nasty. I am a surgeon and physician myself, I told them I am leaving the hospital after 15 minutes of horrible nursing and doctors in that ER. I went to Cedars Sinai which I requested from 911 to take me there first but they refused.I took Uber and went to Cedars.At Cedars, I was treated very quickly, got CT scan, Doppler ultrasound and chest x-ray, excellent ER physician Dr Hallert and superb nurse Denise. I cannot express enough gratitude. I would advise any patient in California never to go to Providence Holly Cross Ever, unless you have a death wish!! And you like insufferable nurses and ER physician. Definitely Cedars Sinai is the best hospital on the west coast. I have been to UCLA, USC, Northridge hospital among others in LA and all are below average with exception of Cedars. The hospitals in northeast like Mass General, Johns Hopkins are much better than anyone here. The only hospitals I would consider go to in California is Cedars Sinai or UCSF." - Ehab

Kaiser Foundation Hospital - West La: "Horrendous hospital!!! My almost life and death ER experience there. Besides the fact this hospital caused my heart attach due to medical malpractice , I actually had a heart attack in 2007 no thanks to their horrific endocrinologist there destroying my thyroid. Anyways, here's my experience in their ER. One night I had severe chest pains, and somehow was able to drive to the ER at West LA Kaiser. I went in, and the dipshit clerk at the ER told me to sit down in the waiting room!!! After about 30 minutes of this dipshit male nurse or whatever the hell he was did nothing, I decided fuck this and went into the ER room screaming in pain!!! Thank god there was a temp Dr from UCLA stationed there, he checked on me and screamed at the nurses and staff "what are you people doing here, get this man into ER NOW!!!" And if it wasnt for that UCLA Dr, I would be dead right now." - Neal

Victor Valley Community Hospital: "The nurses and staff at this hospital feel that it's perfectly ok to refuse medical services to people based on their personal religious beliefs. I am shocked that a business like a hospital would allow this to happen. I will never go near this hospital again, knowing that I could be refused care and sent home in a critical situation because nurses, who refuse doctor's orders, are allowed to refuse treatment based on their personal beliefs. This is not how hospitals should be run. " - Heather

: "Huntington Memorial Hospital's ER was a nightmare. I picked it because it was close to my house and I was in too much pain to make a very considered decision. It took 5 hours to get a bed, I was barely seen by a doctor, the doctor's switched shifts and did not communicate very well so I had to re-explain everything, etc. I had the worst and most traumatic, painful pelvic exam I'd ever had. All in all it took 12 hours and I did not even get a diagnosis. A nightmare. Never going back again, wish I'd seen this list first." - G
