Horrible, horrible, horrible. I went in because I just moved here and hadn't been set up with a primary care doctor yet. I have degenerative disc disease and my left leg started going completely numb. Long story short, I went in and had the physician assistant in the ER talk to me like I was a drug addict. He was talking down to me, until I insisted that he look up my chart in Monterey county (which shows that I took myself off of pain medicine, of my own volition, after I had an epidural and physical therapy) and I asked him to order an MRI, since I knew my back had become worse. He finally ordered the MRI and, once he got the results, and proof that I have a legitimate issue, he stopped talking to me like a degenerate. It's sad that, because of the widespread abuse of medication, people like me are treated like addicts. It is unfair, embarrassing and demoralizing. I will never again wait 4 hours to be treated like something I'm not. I went there for help, not unfair judgement. This isn't the same hospital it was back in 2002, when I had my son. The labor and delivery people were great. The ER department, on the other hand, is a nightmare. They should drug test people when they come in, especially if they're there for a pain-related condition. I would have gladly submitted to one. Then, once they established that I'm not a drug addict, I may have had better treatment.
