Unfortunately I have way too much experience with many hospitals in 5 different states & none would ever compare to this hospital. It's kind of a shame this hospital is only for children because they are great in every aspect I encountered. ALL their staff was extremely kind, patient, compassionate, & understanding in ways some people would never consider but they're also very competent, knowledgeable, & seem to be well educated where it counts. It was also really nice to be in a facility that not only had more than all the equipment they needed or might need but also a lot of the latest & nicest equipment. And even though this is a children's hospital they seem to keep the entire family in mind and were very nice to ALL of us.
Best of all - their doctors are extremely thorough & persistent in searching for answers, most Dr.s give up after a few tests even if they don't find the problem. I am very pleased with and grateful for this hospital and I hope I can always bring my children here if there is a need for it.
DO NOT SEE DR PASTERNAK - this man has an ego the size of North America. If you stop being one of his patients, he will turn the entire GI department against you. They literally stopped treating my nephew who is being rushed to Banner hospital at this moment because Pasternak's ego got in the way of treating a patient. This man felt that it was prudent to discharge my nephew with a metal object in his intestine. This baby was born with gastroschisis, and has short gut syndrome. He is got a paralyzed portion of his intestine where the metal object is stuck. But Pasternak sent him home. Unless you want your child to be on death's door step, stay away from this place!
I am very grateful for the staff and doctors in the emergency room. My son had an asthma attack we took him in for abnormal breathing. we didn't wait more than 15 minuted when he was already in the room getting care right away. They made my little guy feel great and made me and my husband feel comfortable. Thank you Tiffany the night nurse that attended my husband and Bobbi the Respiratory therapist that cared for him right away. The doctors were awesome. Thank you so much.
Always the BEST place to take my daughter. Took her to the hospital on 27th off the 101 Dr.Mendys and they missed an ear infection that lead to her ear drum erupting a day later.
The children’s hospital is By FAR the best place to take a child, they are amazing in every aspect. My daughter responds to the doctors there better than she responds to her pediatrician.
I have been a patient at PCH since I was 14. This hospital provides an amazing atmosphere and all of the doctors/nurses/staff are great. Dr. Pasternak and Dr. McMahon in particular have been nothing short of phenomenal with my case. Having debilitating pain and not knowing why is the worst feeling in the world but I can now gladly say that with the help of my Gastroenterologist, Dr. Pasternak, and my Surgeon, Dr. McMahon, I am fully in remission and happier and healthier than ever. So thank you for that! Also, a special thanks to all of the amazing ladies in the infusion center! They introduced me to my best friend that has the same disease as I do and even synced up our Remicaid treatments so we can see each other for each infusion. Great hospital and AMAZING staff (:
