Location and Directions


I sat in the waiting room for two hours before being seen by a doctor. When I say being seen by a doctor, I actually mean being taken to the back room where the doctors are, because I was never actually seen by a doctor. After waiting 45 minutes to be seen, and hearing nothing but the patient's surrounding me complaining that nobody has talked to them, people who have been there much longer than me, I left. I went to Safeway to solve my problem over the counter. Typical for Doctor's and Hospital's especially. They are incredibly slow and in desperate need of leadership that has a sense of purpose. Never in my life have I seen so many people who are supposed to be working simply standing around talking. One of the worst hospitals I've ever seen. Their attitude is so nonchalant and uncaring that it borders on human rights violation. (3 months ago)

Was on my way way home from a giants baseball game in SF when I developed symptoms of a "migraine"? Maybe? Dehydration? Not exactly sure because I wasn't able to be seen.. anyway, I was driving and suddenly the pain became unbearable, mind you I have given birth to two children and still can't explain this type of pain. I pulled off the freeway and started vomiting uncontrollably. When I was finally able to stop vomiting my husband started driving and I told him I couldn't stand the pain. And to take me to the nearest hospital. I couldn't talk I was just crying and crying and rocking back and forth trying to bear it. I'm surprised I didn't pass out. I couldn't even drink water. I've never experienced something this scary. We finally made it to the ER here. I vomited once again before going in. I couldn't talk so my husband told her what was going on and all she said, with a dirty smug look on her face was "Were very busy...." nothing more. When I then tried to tell her the severity of the situation she again said "I just want you to know that we're very busy" and that was it... in the rudest tone possible! that's the type of care you receive when you're in dire need of medical attention? Is this not an EMERGENCY room?? Ridiculous!! This woman was terrible. Whoever was checking people in on 9/3/2017 around 9pm... there were a couple people who checked in in front of me. No one who seemed to be having too serious of a medical issue. No one in any obvious pain in the waiting room. Here I am drenched in tears hardly able to speak and I can't get any help. Never coming back to this place and definitely will be calling to complain more. DO NOT GO TO THIS ER IF YOU ACTUALLY WANT TO BE HELPED. They're much friendlier in Santa Rosa.. (10 months ago)

I have never been in such a dysfunctional ER in my live, talk about slow, if you don't have to go there then don't (2 months ago)

Got the ER at 2:30 a.m.-ish during a weekday. One Filipina nurse was rude and unkind. The outgoing desk clerk in the front, a long dark haired morbidly obese lady, was also rude. Don't sign anything there unless you can review the material first or just leave. The rest of the staff was nice and helpful. (7 months ago)
