6/22/17 my fiance was admitted by ambulance to ER at app 2:45 pm and was having a stroke, was given medicine because he was on warfin which was in his chart. First of all with him being a high risk case someone decided not to send him to John Muir Trauma center, and instructed paramedics to bring him to Kaiser Deer Valley, I couldnt understand that decision. They did take a ct scan and saw a little bleed, and gave him meds to counter act the warfin, hour later he had full crainal hemorrhage with seizure, no one in the room because I step out to go the bathroom, when I got back they would not let me in the room, all of this happened within 10 minutes and Doctor came in and told me he took and turn for the worst and did another ct can and head was full of blood and at that time he was in a coma and never regained consciousness, and passed away at 10:55pm that night, anytime someone dies it is very hard, but I still wonder if the decision was made to take him to John Muir Trauma center would his out come have been different.. I have been Kaiser patient for years and love my Doctor but this question will always be in my heart.
Some of the doctors here are INCOMPETENT and prescribing the WRONG MEDICATIONS that you don't need. The doctors couldn't figure out what is wrong with me and they run tests and labs, some of which are unnecessary... SO my medical costs went up to 15k just for the tests and labs and they have not treated me yet. I'm actually afraid to know how much TREATMENT would cost.
One of the best Kaiser. Staff are friendly here and treat you like a human being. Their volunteer staff are always willing to point you in the right direction, and help you push the wheelchair. Their pharmacy can be a zoo and the wait can be challenging. The line to drop off your prescription is pretty quick, but on a normal day, you can expect anywhere between 15 to 30 minute wait and then have to wait in line for another 15 minutes to pick up the prescription and if you have a consultation that can add another 10 minutes. The parking lot can get pretty full by mid day but you can always find an open space. They also have a pretty nice cafeteria with decent food. You would think a place like this would have mediocre food because you have no choice, but it's actually not bad. They have a variety of healthy choices at reasonable priced. I paid $5.99 for a chicken taco salad. Cafeteria dining area is pretty big so there's ample seating. They even have a public microwave to warm up your own lunch too
Kaiser is greedy and money-hungry. Instead of finding ways to help you save money on already expensive medical costs that cost a fortune with or without medical insurance, they will try to find ways on how you can spend more money. Even their food in the cafeteria cost too much.
I keep calling for an appointment just to keep getting transferred back and forth the whole time. Rude people on the phone. No help They've gotten better...
