Nurses are carelesss at ER reception . Do not care about 80 y/ o lady waiting in pain with abscess. No stretcher offer for someone who can not even sit down due to pain and seems careless toward others... more pain. After waiting 90 minutes no one had call me. Run away from this place . Nurses think they have inal answer prior to see patients. This place stinks when you get in , full of police when you get in as well. It seems you entering to NY subway scent and police. Receptionist nurse seems very judgmental and racist, even he obviously has same sex preference. Not sure why they hire people so rude in San Diego.
I had 2 surgeries for cervical issues including disc replacement & insertion of titanium rods from cervical to thoracic & severe compression issues. The surgeons, neurologists, & countless nursing staff... more made my stay as pleasant as possible & the outcome was a roaring success. I highly recommend!!!!
