Be careful when using their ER. They contract doctors out of network for their ER and you will be billed from the hospital as well as the contracted doctor. It seems crazy that a hospital would use out... more of network physicians but is seems to be more and more prevalent in the medical care industry. Unfortunately the industry knows it has all the leverage as you do not get to select the doctor you see when visiting the ER.
As a first-time mom who was new to San Diego, I was especially nervous about the quality of care I would receive while pregnant. Originally, I chose Mary Birch to give birth with Dr. Daneshmand. However,... more when he moved to Scripps La Jolla I followed him (since I couldn’t see delivering with anyone else). I did this unsure of whether my experience with the nurses and hospital would match the excellent care I received with Dr. Daneshmand personally. The 15 plus days spent in antepartum and labor/delivery absolutely wonderful. The nurses were personal and friendly. They went out of their way to show that I was truly cared about while making sure I was medically taken care of.
For such a modern state of the art facility,I was very surprised to have an experience where I got disconnected 3 times and never got a nurse in the ICU ,3 other times after there shift changes trying... more to get information regarding my sister on Life support.All I got was a recording that said they were busy and a system that didn't offer an opportunity to leave a message in order to check on My loved one. that sucks!!!
