I have been suffering from Crohn’s disease for the past 25 years and that has made me land up in the ERs of different hospitals, at times at very odd timings in the last 25 years. And because of my immense experience at the ERs of many hospitals, I can go on to say that the ER team at Adventist is one of the best I have seen, they know their work and they are one of the most compassionate team I have ever seen.

My experience here was flawless and the ER nurse treated me amazingly well and was very attentive and patient while listening to my entire medical history. Even the doctor who attended to me was very warm and understanding of my situation and he took the efforts to tell me the entire process of my treatment.

The whole time I was here, I think for the first time in my life, I felt as if I was at home. It never felt like a hospital in the first place because the feeling they managed to give me was homely. I know I have to come back and I am only coming back in here.

I met with a minor accident and was taken to Adventis ER. I must say they have a very clean and nice ER department and the staff who attended to me were very professional in their outlook and very humane and kind at the same time as well. They gave me excellent services and I am highly pleased with them.

If I need to go to a hospital ever again, I am going back to Simi Valley

Stay Away from this place

My friend’s grandpa passed away some 3 years back because of negligence caused by the nursing staff here. If I remember it correctly, her grandpa was suffering from pneumonia but was getting better despite his old age. And all of a sudden, a nurse put a feeding tube into his lung and left it there for a few hours before anyone actually noticed that it was not placed properly.

Even though her grandpa was recovering, after this incident, his condition deteriorated and nothing they tried after that could revive him and within a few days, he passed away.

I saw my friend shatter after that because she was quite close to her grandpa and I know she can never forgive them for the neglect they have shown. I have steered clear off that hospital ever since and I would advise everyone else to do the same as well.

I am new to Simi Valley and not quite used to the locality. We were cleaning up our new home and I dunno how but somehow I caught a bad flu. I do not get sick often but when I do, things usually go out of hand. So, my first thoughts when I got sick was to go to a hospital and my neighbour suggested Adventis.

I would say I was blessed to come to a hospital like this. The ER department is simply awesome. I did not have to wait even for 10 minutes and they were awesome to me. No dirty looks or glances even though I was sneezing the whole time and couldn’t even explain anything properly to them. They were smiling always and showed great patience with me.

Their medication helped me sleep well that night and I was better very soon.

Last year, I evening I started feeling dizzy all of a sudden and didn’t know what to do because the feeling wouldn’t stop. I was then brought in here by a friend and without any ado, they took me in to the ER room and the care and concern they showed me were excellent.

People over there were damn helpful and I can never forget that. But things took a turn the next morning. I was to leave after breakfast; so I ordered something that sounded real fancy out of the menu but when it arrived, it neither looked good nor tasted edible.

And then an altogether new drama started. An attendant came in with a long list of tests they wanted to perform in order diagnose the reason for my dizziness. I kinda understood their intentions behind doing that and refused to get it done. I didn’t want a few thousands bill coming home!! But they did not let me go after that. I had to keep on ranting the same thing for half an hour before they finally realized how stubborn I am and how I was never gonna give in. But that sort of made me uncomfortable! I felt as if I was kept there against my will.

So, post this, I have never been there again. I lost my confidence in them and didn’t want to go back in there.

Last winter, one night I suffered from severe wheezing and since Adventis was the closest to my home, I was brought in here by my wife. The moment I was here, the hospital staff took over the complete responsibility and didn’t let my wife worry about a thing! The duty doctor was attentive to my health condition and did everything possible to make me feel comfortable. And the nurse who tended to me later was a very nice lady too.

They not just took care of me but also my wife. I cannot thank them enough!
