feedback about Alvarado Hospital Medical Center
This was a HORRIFIC experience for me. I cannot believe this hospital is in business. I experienced racism, unqualified nurses and doctor, unsanitary, not equipped with the medical necessities, no doctor on call only RN who have limited abilities. I can go on and on. The doctor did not like me asking questions, he hung up on the nurse, was EXTREMELY disrespectful to me. My son was in the hospital and I was told I could leave because I was not a doctor!!! All because I had questions. They did not want to discharge my son so I could take him to another hospital. It was like being held hostage so I had to sign my son out. I was very uncomfortable and scared to receive any care from them. Labs did not match up with what they would come and tell me. DO NOT GO TO THIS HOSPITAL!!!!!!!!!
The worst hospital the worst service dont ever go here. And I don't think they ever wipe the tables or any of the equipment that any of the sick patients ever Walking into this place I felt I was gonna walk out Being even more sick than or that I was gonna contract a new disease that I didnt have Dude you're the fifth of this location on the staff members are coughing with a runny nose is but yet not one of them have gloves on
This is a small hospital but offers excellent healthcare. The staff us very helpful and kind.
Outside of grossmont hospital, Alvarado has got to be the worst one yet! Their entire ER staff is very unprofessional including their stop in billing or whatever you want to call it that gives you your paperwork oh, and some of the nurses. I came in by ambulance. It was not my choice to go there. I do not have a field bus pass this month. I have no money.. And my bank account is overdrawn because money was stolen from me, along with my phone. so when I get upset at the fact that my test results weren't even discussed with me before I was handed my discharge papers, and I'm saying how am I going to get back home when I don't know anybody who drives or has any money that they can somehow come bring me oh, I said what am I supposed to do walk back El cajon? I kid you not, a male nurse goes well yeah! I came in for suspected concussion! even though I am still in pain I'm still nauseous and I don't even know what the test results were! I basically said a big Fu and left my discharge paperwork is there. If you can go anywhere else, even grossmont is better unless you're there for psych. Medically grossmont is superior. Alvarado is a piss-poor small-minded pathetic hospital, at least the ER is!
First, I would love to take the opportunity to shout out; Dr. Hampton, Dr. Wynn, Nurse Chris, Karen, Shelly, everybody they deserve 5 stars. Except Dr Avulov. My experience, though, was so marred by Dr. Avulov I wish I could give HIM specifically a 0. For starters, he was called in at 3pm to perform my surgery and confirmed that he would be there BY 6. Which, for an emergency appendectomy, was already too long. He didn't show up until after 6:45 and gave no updates about this. The whole team was ready, but because of him I wasn't even in the OR until after 7. THEN while discussing my pain meds I told him I cannot have hydrocodone because on two other occasions it did nothing for me. He forced me to have it anyways and I had to have nurse Chris give me more morphine as soon as I was allowed to because I was in such excruciating pain. After discussing with Dr. Wynn (My primary physician), he switched me to Percocet. While the pain still did not subside completely, it was finally manageable. For some reason, though, despite the explicit instructions of Dr. Wynn and without even discussing it with me switched me back to hydrocodone and then REFUSED to speak to me about it and left hostipal. Now, a day after surgery, I'm in as much pain as I was before my surgery. His license should be REVOKED IMMEDIATELY. He literally disregarded his patient's, the nurses who pleaded my case, and his own equal's opinion in favor of his mentally degraded and highly incompetent opinion.
