I've had a variety of medical ailments affect me over the years, & thus, have found myself in this ER a # of times throughout my life. From bad back pain, stomach pain, & chest pain due to costochondritis,... more I've always been pleased with how doctors & nurses treated me. I was especially grateful with my last visit in December, when I hadn't slept for two days straight due to pain, & Dr Bannen was very professional & thorough; I could quickly tell that he knew his stuff. I was very grateful that, despite my relatively young age (25), & the fact that the country is in the midst of the opioid crisis, Dr Bannen was willing to trust me enough to give me a small quantity of pain medicine, which ultimately enabled me to get the sleep I desperately needed in order to start healing. Many doctors won't do that these days, so I hold him in very high regard. Over the years, Dr's Todd Bannen, Shabbir Kanji, & Len Michael Lee have stood out in my memory as particularly knowledgeable, professional, & compassionate doctors, & I would recommend them to anyone.
Do NOT recommend
Just spent 2 days there and saw only 1 doctor who ordered tests without telling me or explaining anything to me. But he was much better than the doctor who just never showed up.... more I waited 13 1/2 hours for him. No meds because he never showed to sign the papers. Thanks Dr Livingston!
CV-ICU staff was incredible. They saved my husband's life and treated me and our family with compassion and respect. They referred to my husband by name, making him a person and not a "case." In our... more darkest hours they were supportive and reassuring. They were invested in the holistic well-being of our entire family from the desk in the lobby to the janitorial teams, from nurses to surgeons. I'm a complainer... I haven't got a single complaint. Amazing people. They define healers.
