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.
