Please beware of a man by the name of Ian Jenkins MD, who happens to be an internist/hospitalist doctor and professor here at UCSD. There was an incident that occurred in which involved Jenkins and a fellow volunteer at the hospital as well as another. While he may hold great reputation, there is major uncertainty as to his intentions when it comes to his personal life as well as in the workplace. We personally wouldn't trust him. Please watch out to anyone who may be a patient/student of his. If you see this, please report any harassment/sexual misconduct immediately.
I see UCSD writes replies. So try coming up with one to this. I was on the psyciatric part of the hospital. West wing. And I had the worst experience with the nurses ecxept for one. Specifically three were bad tho. Nurse Jesse. And Nurse Chris, and Nurse Paul. These three agreed that my mental health symptoms i was experiencing were exaderated and fake. They told me after I did this too myself to grow up and stop whining. They never cared about my symptoms even when i spoke to them correctly so i had no other choice but to freak out and self harm. Then a day after i did this they just discharged. Im going back to another hospital because of my experience here. Never come here seeking psychiatric care until they fix the attitude of the nursing staff. Psychiatry and everyrhing else was okay. And the one nurse who was great to me was named Nympha thank you Nympha. The rest of these nurses need to be fired.
I was at an amusement park on Monday, and had a cramp start that turned into excruciating pain. My husband rushed me to the ER, and the ER staff acted quickly and started doing tests on me, putting in an IV as well. Shortly after my arrival I had an ultrasound which showed an advanced ectopic pregnancy that ruptured, and was causing internal bleeding in my abdomen; the ultrasound tech said "you don't need to be in ER" and rushed out of the room to call OB. About 30 minutes later I was in emergency surgery performed by Doctor Frugoni and Doctor Reggiardo. Even though I am sad for the loss of my baby (ectopic pregnancies are not viable and always fatal to both mommy and baby if untreated), I am extremely thankful to the ultrasound tech, and my surgical team, for acting fast and saving my life. During everything - ER, ultrasound, ER bed, being taken to surgery, and the recovery room, everyone was very informative and told me everything that would happen or did happen. I've never had better care in my life. (I was vacationing in San Diego, so I am not local) thank you UCSD medical center, Hillcrest. I am home now and really wish Doctor Frugoni was local to me for follow up because she is so amazing at what she does, and has superb bedside manner for a doctor.
My friend had a medical emergency and the team at UCSD Medical Center was absolutely amazing. From communication and compassion to efficiency and top-notch medical professionals I can’t say enough about the care he received.
UCSD - Owen Clinic has my favorite doctors and nurses! They are very informative, willing to help, and attend to my appointments in a timely matter, keeping my wait time to a minimum. Please, check out Owen Clinic, it is a great place for treatment of chronic and infectious disease.
