Had an excellent and wonderful experience while I was in the Sonora ER. When I visited the place at around 11:00 AM, the ER was choc-a-bloc and almost overflowing. However, there was good flow, and I had to wait for only 45 minutes before I was taken back to the room. The doctor was beside me within minutes.

She thoroughly evaluated me (very happy and surprised since I thought it would not be possible), ordered a scan (which took some time to get done), explained the result, made the appropriate diagnosis, and then gave necessary meds. The whole visit took three hours, of which two hours were spent waiting for getting the CT and then the result.

Immensely pleased the care that I got here.

These idiots discriminate a patient based on size and weight. I needed to have hernia surgery. All the preliminary tests are done. I arrive on the scheduled day and get prepped for the operation. As I lie on the table, a bitch of a surgeon comes, takes one look at me and says, “you are too fat, man…you cannot be operated here. Please shift him to the Valley.”

Ass*&^%s, if I am too big didn’t you realize this when you were doing the preliminary tests etc. I did not put up so much weight in 15 days. Someone somewhere is clearly lying.

Great experience. I brought a friend here after she ended up dislocating her shoulder in a whitewater kayaking accident. She was feeling extreme pain and then fainted. We rushed her here, and the ER trauma team immediately took charge. Very professional, highly knowledgeable, and very communicative, the ER team of doctors and nurses ensured that Gini was getting the best possible care. The doctors updated us regarding her status. Once fixed, they even gave a cell number to get in touch in case she faced any complications. The support services were also very friendly

A pathetically run ER. If you go to the ER during rush hours, then be prepared to spend six to eight hours; if you go during non-rush hours, you would still end up wasting five to six hours waiting for your turn. A visit to the PCP is a game of chance. You would be lucky if you reach the PCP while you are still alive.

The less said about the calling them, the better. My count is seven calls with voice messages — no call back till now. The only positive is some of the excellent doctors and nurses who give it their best to make sure that you recover well. Alas, they are few and far between...

This hospital will always be my port-of-call. I have visited this place at least five times over the past three years, and each time I was treated very well. Every physician, nurses, as well as support staff, show genuine concern when it comes to patient health. They did not miss a chance to inquire how I was feeling and doing every time I went there. Best overall experience
