My son had been sick over the weekend. Today he was with his dad. His dad called that he was going to take him to this hospital with a sore throat. When I spoke to him, it was so bad my 12 yr old son was crying on the phone when I spoke to him. It is always heartbreaking to hear him cry like that. It's only when he's really in torment. I asked him if he wanted me to meet him at the hospital and he did. So I went. I did in fact have more details than his dad about how sick he had the past few days, he was tired and suffering a bad headache yesterday By the time I got there he was already being seen, and they told me that there was a one parent limit. I waited awhile and tried again, because I know my boy really wanted me to be with him. The front desk said he would be released soon. The whole time I waited I was wondering why I wasn't being allowed to be with my son. Turns out dad's girlfriend was there, so not only was the one-parent limit a lie, a woman who is not even his mother was allowed in instead of me. I was so distressed over this whole ordeal, and have been crying for hours. I did not get to even talk to a doctor about what my son has been going through. I will never come back to this hospital voluntarily. I don't trust the diagnosis of simply a sore throat at this time because he was also lethargic and suffering a bad headache. I am definitely making an appointment with his primary doctor and I will be the one there to give her all the details that have been left out. (a month ago)

CHOC Children's is just the BEST in terms of child health. Best care Best nursing Best Physicians Best quality of service In CHOC, care is not a job, it is what they really love to do. (a month ago)

Hands down the best ER experience I have ever had! I have worked in hospitals and ERs, have 3 kids and have been to ERs all over the country. This the Disneyland of ERs. What impressed me the most was how happy and accommodating ALL of the staff were. We were met with a smile from registration to discharge. Everyone looked happy to be a work and enjoying their jobs. Yes, we were there for 4 hours but never felt "forgotten about". Staff were continually checking in on us making sure my daughter was comfortable. Thank you CHOC ER and all the staff!! (a month ago)

Their ER employs UNSUPERVISED PAs (physician assistants). When you go to the ER, don't count on seeing a board-certified physician. You will likely get stuck seeing a PA who only has 2 years of training (compare that to the 8 years of med school and residency training that the physicians have). The PA who saw my 3 year-old nephew completely missed the diagnosis. My nephew had a dislocated elbow. This is an EASY diagnosis for any ER physician, and very easy to treat. Instead the under-trained, under-educated PA diagnosed him with a sprained wrist and sent him home in a sling. After 2 more days of pain, my sister took him to an orthopedic surgeon who accurately diagnosed his dislocated elbow and popped it back in place. After this very poor care, CHOC still stuck my sister with a $1300 bill. They are very lucky my nephew wasn't left with nerve or blood vessel damage. My sister fought the charges after the misdiagnosis and terrible care. Finally, after a year and a half and repeated phone calls from a collection agency, they had the bill written off. I would not recommend going to their ER at all. If CHOC thinks it's appropriate to let an unsupervised PA diagnose and treat hurt and sick kids, then not only are they going to have a big PR problem on their hands but malpractice lawsuits.

I'm sorry but I have to write this review. The staff was friendly but when you ask a mom with three kids (one being a newborn) to show up 15 minutes before the appointment time and then ask her to wait for three hours before they see the doctor is just cruel. Next time you better be expecting hell on wheels. Fortunately, my kids were well behaved and my newborn did great but this is unacceptable to expect of patient and their family members. It was a consultation appointment that literally took 10 maybe 15 minutes once the doctor finally arrived. Telling people an hour into the wait time that future appointments require you to schedule three hours of your day does not make this OK. The excuse of there being procedures that take place and sometimes they go longer than expected is not a valid reason either. There should be a day for consultations and then a day for procedures. I realize I may not completely understand the structure and dynamics of the office appointments and the scheduling of things but to ask a family to wait for three Flippin hours for a consultation appointment is an absolute joke. Thankfully we will not have to have to continue coming to this office. And even if there was still an issue that needs to be addressed by these doctors we would definitely not be coming back to this office. Come on CHOC!! Get it together! (5 months ago)
