This hospital is a much-needed safety net for the many people in the local community who lack health insurance and money. I will be forever thankful for those who provided care to my family member. Nonetheless, it seems as if some nurses, case managers and palliative care liaisons operated on cold autopilot. Also, the place seems like a jailhouse at night with all of the security guards who demand identification.

Worst hospital I have ever been to. Mr. Johnson discarded what 6 other doctors said to me about my condition--and they were professionals in the field of my disease! He also had me wait for 3 hours to see him. He stated confidently that I had been misdiagnosed.

His bedside manner was no better. He stated that I need to go on a low sodium diet and he felt that my wife should diet that way too. My wife wasn't the one being seen, so I felt this was unprofessional and rude. I started to wonder if all the bruises and stitches on his face were from another patient beating the hell out of him.

Mr. Johnson also stated that there was nothing new that could be done for me--to which I questioned why I even bothered to see this hack in the first place.

Lastly, Mr. Johnson casually told me that his mother had died from Hypertension. He stated this with a flat affect which caused me to question his competency in medical practice (though I was already questioning this when he made the comment about my wife's weight and her getting on a low sodium diet).

After weeks away from this place, my doctors new meds worked and I am on schedule to a full recovery. I get a call from Kern Medical asking for a followup--to which I stated that I would never go back to Kern Medical again. The secretary said she would make a note.

Next week I get the same phone call and share the same insights. The other secretary then stated that she would make a note.

Now on this day 9/8/18 I get a Kern Medical evaluation form in the mail asking how everything was. So this kindly reminded of how much of an unprofessional place this is and I figured I would share my insights with everyone since they don't seem to understand that I think they are worthless. I feel sorry for you Bakersfield people being treated here.

If I could give this place zero stars I would! I have a a surgery scheduled here twice in one month the have cancelled! The first time the only reason I got was the dr just can't and then they can me back on a Tues and tell me to be there Friday and Friday as I'm on my way out the door going to the hospital they call and cancel again saying the Dr is sick! I feel this place is unprofessional and just like to waste people time!

Some bad experience at the nicu unit. It depends on the shifts. The later night nurses seem nicer and respectful. The Sunday nurse's forget about it. They are rude loud lazy and disrespectful. Had breast milk for my son that my wife forgot to bring in so I rang the bell and all snooty like she says only two people at a time and i say I know I just wanted to give her the breast milk. .so she say oh ok I wait and wait no one comes. So I call the hospital and they transfer me to the same lazy chic. And she says I went to the door and um like um you um weren't like there or something. I said yeah i went to the lobby to go sit down. Oh well do you want me to come and get the um breast milk um or like um or meet you in the hall or um something.... I thought this place was top notch wow oh wow!!!
